I think it’s a little weird that The Phantom has two unique plots going at a time, one that occurs on the weekdays (and Saturday), and the other than occurs only in the Sunday strips. I know the reason behind it, but more often than not, I find myself reading two sub-par storylines.
Anyway, as Chatu the Python is returned to prison during the week, the Phantom takes a street kid under his wing, which means letting his own children beat the crap out of him and generally make fun of him. (This is known as “Jungle Justice.”)
Maybe I’d be more impressed with all of this if Kit’s kids, a boy and a girl, didn’t look like they’d been working out and ‘roiding up for weight-lifting competitions since they were five years old. And I know I’d be REALLY more impressed if they wore something that didn’t look like it came from the Walgreens’ incontinence aisle. Apparently, I’m not the only one…
