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 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.

Introduction by Ian Daniels. “All of the continuities show the continuous and consistent development of the artist, Wilson McCoy’s, artwork. McCoy, who used staged photo reference for each of his stories, was busy using members of his family to create these Phantom tales and many photographs survive of various stories with family members posed exactly as they appear in the comic strip continuities.”

Daniels goes on to reveal that several of these continuities were adapted into comic books. For example, “Queen Sansamor and the 6th Man” was adapted into the story for Gold Key’s Phantom #9, November, 1964. “Wisdom of Solomon” was adapted as a 24-page story in L’Uomo Mascherato #91, 1968, and went on to appear in translated stories in at least six other countries.

Condition: Copies have spine and or corner bumps. Bottom tail pages slightly soiled.
