A few days ago, I pointed out that the current creative team producing the Phantom (Tony DePaul, Paul Ryan, and Eduardo Barretomade a reference to one of the strip's long-standing tropes. In the last two days, it's just gotten better. Not only is there a character breaking the fourth wall and speaking directly to the reader, but it's not just anyone. As today's sequence makes clear, our distinguished-looking speaker is actually Lee Falk, the creator and first writer of the Phantom. A very nice homage, indeed. (click on images to enlarge)
