Yeah, this is the 'modern look' for the phantom...sheesh

Not being born in the 1930s, I was never big on The Phantom comic by Lee Falk. They’ve tried and tried over and over again to bring this series to the public awareness, but it’s never really caught on. but there is some promise to what I’ve just seen.

From my memory there was The Phantom 2040 cartoon series, and the not-so-good movie that had the awesome Billy Zane playing the titular character, but I had no idea that SyFy had been developing a series based on the comic…until today.

The show will air on the 20th of June here on SyFy…is it just me or does the Phantom look a bit like Judge Dredd?
