Hermes Press proudly announces the second volume in its complete series of reprints of THE PHANTOM!


The first, original, and best masked hero to ever grace the pages of comic strips and comic books returns in the second volume of Hermes Press’ new complete reprint of The Phantom. 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. Volume Two presents six complete continuities, reprinted for the first time in their entirety, “Little Toma,” “ The Prisoner of the Himalayas,” “Adventure in Algiers,” “The Shark’s Nest,” “Fishers of Pearls,” and “The Slave Traders.”
