This is meant to be a thread for all versions of THE PHANTOM, the Lee Falk-created King Features Syndicate newspaper strip character who has appeared in many comic books as well from many publishers over the years. Fall also created MANDRAKE THE MAGICIAN.

  The Phantom seems to be considerably more popular in Scandanavia, Australia and India than in America. Many, many, Phantom comic-book stories have been produced in other countries that have never been published in America 

  To a certain extent, I am starting this line to whip back up my own enthusiasm for the Phantom. Practically a decade and a half ago (Ulp!!!) I splurged on an Air Mail subscription to the massively long-running and high-numbered Phantom comic book, that is published in Australia by Frew Publications, which primarily draws upon translations of the Swedish material, but publishes Ghost Who Walks stories from other sources too. The now-departed from here Figserello described his enthusiasm for the Falk creation here " back in the day " - Anyway - let's go, Guran!

On Amazon if I look at an item it says "you purchased this item on (date)."

...I today read Dynamite's THE LAST PHANTOM #8 from a few years ago, found in a thrift shop. How many issues did it run?

  I just can't get myself to get really interested in the contemporary King Features Syndicate Phantom newspaper strip, and that was when I had access to bigger computer screens than I now have. The strip was showing the Phantom and Diana's m/f twins as late teenagers going out on their own, the male starting his training to be the next Phantom...
