"Nat Turner’s Spirit Part 6" - story by Claes Reimerthi and art by Kari Leppanen.
Heart of Darkness Chapter 2 part 3
Cover art by Shane Foley.
Story : Nat Turner’s Spirit Part 6, The King of Louisiana brings a close to the story by Claes Reimerthi with the intensely brooding art by Kari Leppanen. The conspirators stop at nothing to maintain their power and wealth, which was utterly dependent on the continuation of the barbaric slave trade. Only the Phantom and a force of nature will be strong enough to stand in the path of such determined evil. Continued over six gripping episodes, this story has taken us from the liberality of the North to the slave plantations of the South. Now we head deep into the Bayou where the Phantom encounters mounting dangers on land and water. It is a thrilling adventure full of twists and turns with masterful use of cultural and historical realities from that era.
A special thanks to Shane Foley from Queensland for the gorgeous cover art. He has captured the lurking underwater threat so powerfully and imaginatively. Plus, the back cover is just classic Phantom!
