Jasper Jubenvill, our resident comic creator, is once again turning to Reporter readers to decide who will star in his next series.

The 11-year-old artist – a fan of the classic style of serial comic books like Dick Tracy – is wrapping up his latest series, featured on the Reporter's Facebook page each week.

In 21 installments and counting, Jubenvill has kept fans on their toes with the dramatic and exciting adventures of Al Lando vs. The Ghost.

Now he's asking fans to help him chose between "three great heroes" who each seem to offer plenty of material.

Rick Rasen is a 1930s detective. Jhon Boon is a reporter who has a time machine. Phantom is a superhero who can trick criminals with mind-bending illusions.

So far, Phantom is leading the pack.

To vote, please visit our Facebook Page. To view the entire series, click on photos, and select the album called The Comic Strip Kid. All of Jasper's comics for the Reporter are archived there, in chronological order, starting with his first series, Clay Boy.

Or cast your vote by email to editor@cloverdalereporter.com. We'll be sure to announce the winner soon.

Al Lando vs. The Ghost: vote!
