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, starting in August 2016, every other month! Book one starts off with Lee Falk explaining, via the twentieth Phantom, the histories of the Phantoms that came before the current Ghost Who Walks. Famed artist George Wilson (Dr. Solar, Magnus Robot Fighter, The Phantom) 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 for a new generation of Phans to enjoy!
This first exciting book in the series, titled “The Story of The Phantom: The Ghost Who Walks,” 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 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.
This thrilling beginning shows the man behind the mask, as Kit and Guran, his confident and friend, embark on the first of many adventures. Be sure to tune in, because you’d hate to come in late to this tale!
From the creative mind of Lee Falk comes Mandrake the Magician! Created in 1934 with the story “The Cobra.” Comics historian Don Markstein wrote, "Some people say Mandrake the Magician, who started in 1934, was comics' first superhero.”
Hermes Press is proud to continue their legacy of complete Lee Falk comic reprints, starting with the very first years of Mandrake.
This first Volume includes five stories, “The Cobra” (June 11, 1934 – Nov 24 1934), “The Hawk (Mandrake Meets Narda)” (Nov 26, 1934 – Feb 23, 1935), “The Monster of Tanov Pass” (Feb 25, 1935 – June 15 1935), “Saki, the Clay Camel” (June 17, 1935 – Nov 2 1935), and “The Werewolf” (Nov 4 1935 – Feb 1936).
