The Phantom Blot!
I've always enjoyed The Phantom Blot when I've chanced upon his dark inky form. Created by Floyd Gottfredson for the Mickey Mouse comic strip, the elegantly designed Blot proved quite popular as villains go and returned again and again. And as we see here was even awarded his own comic book series from Gold Key when they held the Disney license and just about anything Disney found purchase in the marketplace. His series lasted seven issues alas. Only the conniving Beagle Boys from the Duckverse were more successful with their own series which lasted forty-seven issues. Wouldn't you love to read these comics. They need to be collected.
