This is the first time I, The Ghost Who Blogs, have awarded the Good Mark to anyone. Perhaps I will make it a regular thing?
First of all, I want to hand out a Good Mark to my friend, Jungle Patrol member Mykal Banta. Mykal has generously offered to supply The Ghost Who Blogs with a wonderful piece of Phantom media and I want him to know I sincerely appreciate it. So, here it is Mykal, your Good Mark:
Secondly, I want to extend sincere thanks to an unknown Phan. A Phan who posts on the Phantom Phorum under the handle "Sjefen" (which means "commander" in Norwegian). Sjefen felt that it was an injustice that I had never read any of the fantastic comics currently coming out of Scandinavia. He asked me to e-mail him my mailing address and presto! a week and a half later I recieved an envelope with 5 recent issues of Fantomet in it. He asked nothing in return. Perhaps just as amazing, this mysterious "commander" sent the comics to me in an Egmont mailing envelope! How cool is that!
So Sjefen, whoever you are, you get a Good Mark from The Ghost Who Blogs! Thanks for the comics!
Don't worry, I have my eye on some more of you who may be in the running to receive the Good Mark. But that is for another day.
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 and all related characters, indicia, etc. are copyright 2010 King Features Syndicate.

Now YOU Can dress Like The Phantom and Impress The Ladies!!

" '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
