If anyone has been waiting all day for this week's issue of The Phantom to surface, I have good news and bad news...
The good news is, I have several, awesome, vintage Phantom's on the way. The bad news is, I had hoped they would already be here and had nothing else ready to go today. I have four Charlton's, a Gold Key and two issues of Mandrake (one with a Phantom back-up feature) all in transit. In my possession, I have several issues from DC comics' 1989 run of The Phantom, but I'm reluctant to post them yet. I find them to be of an inferior quality to the 1960's/1970's run and I think the change of style and pacing would be jarring to you, my Jungle Patrol.
So, bear with me and I promise you I'll reward you all with another classic Phantom yarn next week.
Before there was Superman or Batman or Spider-Man, there was The Phantom. Playwright and cartoonist Lee Falk introduced The Phantom to the world in 1936.
Since then, The Phantom has run continuously in newspapers around the world, gaining a following in Europe, Asia, South America, Australia and New Zealand. He has spawned films adaptations, paperback novels, an animated television show and several comic book series.
I have been drawn to the Phantom by his unique backstory-one of the best in sequential media. This blog will let me share with others the exciting world of "The Ghost Who Walks, Who Cannot Die...The Phantom!!"

" 'The Phantom' is a marvelous role model because he wins against evil. Evil does not triumph against the Phantom... He hates dictatorship, and is in favor of democracy. He is also opposed to any violation of human rights." -Lee Falk
