(W) Lee Falk (A/CA) Seymour Sy Barry
Referred to by comic strip historian Maurice Horn as the 'granddaddy of all costumed superheroes,' The Phantom hit the funny pages of newspapers well before the Dark Knight or Superman made their first appearances andset the standard for action, adventure, intrigue, and romance in adventure comic strips and comic books. This exciting volume begins the Sy Barry years! Reprinted in all its black and white glory, journey with Hermes Press as we bring you four complete continuities drawn by Sy himself: 'The Slave Market of Mucar,' 'The Epidemic,' 'The Wharf Rats,' and 'The Mysterious Ambassador.' Strips from this issue are taken directly from King Feature's proofs.
