- Full Description
Reprinted for the first time in their entirety are six complete continuities: “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, crystal clear and nice large size, two dailies to each page. Included in the volume is a comprehensive essay discussing the end to the Wilson McCoy years, plus a complete 13-page story, adapted from one of the sequences here, into a Gold Key Phantom story in 1964.
This story, "The Crybaby," is handsome drawn by Bill Lignante and beautifully collected here over seven pages, in full color.
Introduction by Ian Daniels.
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.
