I just wanted to take a minute and let folks know about a few goings on in the world of Phantom blogging. Over at Charlton vs. Mighty MLJ, The Shadow is giving a review of Phantom #30, Charlton's first Phantom offering. Over at The Ghost Who Draws, Sal Velluto is continuing with his "My First Phantom" series, today starring yours truly. And, over at The Return of Indrajal Comics, blogger Mr. Walker brings you three, count'em THREE vintage Phantom stories from India's beloved Indrajal Comics, stop by and tell them The Ghost Who Blogs sent ya!
Also, The results of the poll are in: It seems (out of the nine people who bothered to vote) that Phans prefer Bengali 2 to 1 over Bangalla. I have to say, I may be leaning that way myself.
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
