Summary

The critically acclaimed, best selling complete reprint of The Phantom continues!
Referred to by comic strip historian Maurice Horn as the “granddaddy of all costumed superheroes,” The Phantom was created in 1936 by Lee Falk with artwork by Ray Moore. The strip hit the funny pages of newspapers well before the Dark Knight or Superman made their first appearances and has been acknowledged as an influence on every “masked man of mystery” since. The Phantom set the standard for action, adventure, intrigue, and romance in adventure comic strips and comic books – it has frequently been copied but never equaled.

Included in this volume are six complete continuities, reprinted for the first time in their entirety, “The Calyle’s Good Mark,” “The Crybaby” “The Underwater Diamond Thieves,” “The Betrothal,” “The Swamp Rats,” and “Oogooru and the Witchmen.” Strips from this issue are taken directly from King Feature’s proofs. Included in the volume is a comprehensive essay and documentary materials.
