The first, original, and best masked hero to ever grace the pages of comic strips and comic books returns in the third volume of Hermes Press’ new complete critically acclaimed 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.

Included in this volume are four complete Phantom adventures utilizing original King Features syndicate press proofs: "The Mysterious Girl"; "The Golden Circle"; "The Seahorse"; and "The Game of Alvar". See the strips in original, pristine condition.
