Happy PHANniversary!

80 years ago today, something amazing happened. It would be the last time no one would "come in late", and it marked the very first appearance of The Phantom comic strip!

We at Hermes Press love the Phantom, from his comic strip roots to the 1996 Billy Zane movie of the same name, and more!

Thank you to Robert Griffin for supplying this colorized version of the first daily strip, which we show below for your enjoyment. Griffin also provided us with most of the material used in the first Sundays collection that we printed, and has been an invaluable resource for Hermes. 

When browsing our site today, please remember that all Phantom products are 20% off with the code THEPHANTOM80, and you can find them all here.
