The Chronicle Chamber has revealed that Bret Blevins is the ghost artist temporarily relieving Mike Manley on The Phantom daily comic strip. They stress that it is a temporary situation.

Due to some personal reasons the popular daily artist has had to temporary hand over the pencils and inks to Bret Blevins. Let us stress, this is just a temporary fill in. Expect to see Mike back soon.

Read the full Chronicle Chamber report.

The Phantom Wiki has a bit about Bret’s previous assistance on The Phantom.

Mike himself has touted friend Bret’s inks over his Phantom and Judge Parker pencils.

I agree, I think Bret is helping/doing the Phantom.

I don’t think he is doing Judge Parker. I think that is John Heebink also, as someone else noted. Just based on some of the art (not the digital/saved Manley art that is being used), but the new ones.
Like Neddie’s face/lips from yesterday.

I wish Bret was doing both. Tall task for anyone, for that alone, Mike Manley should be commended.

Best wishes, Mike is back on the drawing board soon.
