The Phantom v2 #25 - Jeff Jones art


The Phantom v2 #25, 1967 - A young Jeff Jones contributes a short story following the main features. Historical in nature, it chronicles the battle of Fort Sumter and the beginnings of the American Civil War. One of the earliest works in his career, Jones' drawings are generally sloppy and the layouts poorly planned. A majority of backgrounds are devoid of detail, suggesting a lack of effort or at the least, inexperience. The only saving grace is his surprisingly competent depiction of President Abraham Lincoln. Overstreet Guide credits Al Williamson for a single page ad, but it's actually a reproduction of his Flash Gordon record cover illustration. It's lack of color and sharply reduced size make it hardly worth mentioning. This is number 1 of 1 Phantom issues with Jones art and/or covers.
