DOUBLE-LENGTH SERIES FINALE! It was originally intended as a normal-length Episode, but I couldn't fit everything in, so it's a double. I used to get excited when the normally 32-page Phantom comics were a surprise 'double length' 64-page issue....yes, we have already established that I was, and am, a massive nerd.
This Episode was inspired by the big 'all-in brawl' comics they'd sometimes put out, like 'X-Men vs Fantastic Four' or whatever, as well as crazy arcade games like 'Marvel vs Capcom', where you could have The Hulk fighting Jill from 'Resident Evil'. I wanted a big landscape image (Panel 8) of everyone facing off against each other.
OK, so the portal is opened AGAIN, and everyone gets scattered. I refer to the second half of this Episode as 'The Gumby Episode', because of the unintentional Gumby shape of the mega-portal. Then we've got some sort of craggy desert dimension, a mysterious pitch-black dimension, and some kind of moon-like dimension. What will happen in Series 3? I don't know.... (actually I do, but I'm not going to tell you because I want you to read it...).
