One of My Favorite DC Covers 0

Phantasm is a wonderful character that has been wonderfully explored in the mask of the phantasm film but in comics is nearlly hard to find.Thankfully the story of the comics and the films dont conflict that much.Infact,tey are very much the same. Its not fair what happened to Andrae but for the sake of a good complex story driven comic/film it just seems like the right thing to do.Besides the characters are all fictional,or are they?I have a Question kind of attitude about now.Will someone yell...
