A new oversized edition of the first of fifteen 1970s novels written by the man who created The Phantom and first published by Avon. "Why is he also known as The Ghost Who Walks - and The Man Who Cannot Die? Is he really 400 years old? It is whispered that he who looks upon the Phantom's unmasked face will die instantly -- in agony. Who is the Phantom? This masked hero is the nemesis of evil doers everywhere who know and fear his dreaded Sign of the Skull!"

Famed artist George Wilson painted all of the covers used for the Avon series, and they are reproduced beautifully to keep all of the details from the original books intact. Wilson was a regular cover artist for Gold Key during this time, and he painted many, if not most of the Phantom Gold Key comic book covers--a high point of every issue.

"Over one hundred million readers all over the world know and love the Phantom and follow his stirring adventures in 40 languages. He is the most widely read adventure hero on earth today." That's the blurb that appeared on this when it was first published as an Avon paperback.

For the first time ever, the Avon edition of The Phantom is back in print! Hermes Press is proud to announce that they will be publishing all fifteen pocket Avon books, in a larger, trade paperback size, which is far more attractive than the original mass market paperbacks.

This first exciting book in the series tells the story of the childhood and adolescence of the twenty-first Phantom. His father, the twentieth Phantom, regales the reader and young Kit Walker with tales of the men who came before him: the fighter who beat Redbeard the Pirate, while gaining the heart of Queen Natala; the harrowing actions that the twentieth Phantom took to regain the friendship of the Rope People, and many more stories! In this opening to the series, we also meet Diana Palmer, the love of the Phantom, the woman who always can count on the Phantom to rescue her, even before he becomes The Ghost Who Walks.
