Madame Xanadu #3 - Oct. 2008

"Among The Stars" by Matt Wagner and Amy Reeder Hadley.

Riding on a camel into land controlled by none other than Kublai Khan is...The Phantom Stranger!:
The Stranger continues to bedevil Madame Xanadu, claiming not to know her, even though they have met before, as we saw in previous issues of the series.

The Phantom Stranger, inscrutable in any time period!

Hmm... something I noticed here. I don't think we've ever seen The Stranger ride anything before. IIRC, we always see him walking (which fits him more, IMO). Call me out Rob, if I'm wrong but does anyone else remember seeing him "ride into town" in "actual" continuity?

I think you're right. He's appeared and disappeared inside a car or two before. But I don't think we've seen him drive either.

I also enjoy seeing how he might have dressed in previous eras. Though i also lie the idea of him always wearing the hat and cloak, long before they were actually invented. Is this the only time we've seen him in premodern garb?
