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 sevn complete continuities, reprinted for the first time in their entirety, “The Governer's Family,” “The Professor,” and “The Jungle Patrol,” “Bobo the Toy Dog,” “The Great Ajax,” “The Toad Men,” and “The Lady from Nowhere.” Strips from this issue are taken directly from King Feature’s proofs.
