Pullbox Previews: Upcoming Archie Comics

Archie Comics November Solicits & September Previews

BOB PHANTOM (ONE SHOT)

By day, he’s Walter Whitney, a fledgling theater columnist, but by night he’s Bob Phantom, the “Scourge of the Underworld” — or is he? Using his power to become immaterial, Walt beats up criminals and then breaks the news of his exploits in his newspaper column . . . but New York City is not as it once was, and with less crime that means less news. So, if there’s no crime left to fight, there’s only one thing to do: create enemies. Is Bob Phantom really the Scourge of the Underworld, or its leader? Or something else entirely?
