We saw an extensive group of Phantoms from the estate of creator and writer, Lee Falk. First appearing in a newspaper strip syndicated by King Features in early 1936, Ghost Who Walks created an archetype for superheroes to follow with his snappy skin-tight leotard costume with underwear trunks on top and a mask with no visible pupils. His patent on this fashion accessory alone could fund his crime-fighting family for generations. And he was one of the very first members of the cape and mask vigilante fraternity to make the jump to Hollywood. While no longer as popular in America as he once was (you perhaps have heard that newspapers are yesterday’s news?), the Phantom still retains a robust international following. He is hot in frosty Scandinavia (I guess the steamy jungle plays well there) and as any fairdinkum Phantom phan could tell you, he is tops down under. Phantom #1091 (9.4) from Australia’s Frew Publications was a treat to see; they come very Frew and far between.
