Phantom

The Phantom is a long-running American adventure comic strip, first published by Mandrake the Magician creator Lee Falk in February 1936, now primarily published internationally by Frew Publications. The main character, the Phantom, is a fictional costumed crime-fighter who operates from the fictional African country of Bangalla. The character has been adapted for television, film and video games.

The series began with a daily newspaper strip on February 17, 1936, followed by a color Sunday strip on May 28, 1939; both are still running as of 2016. In 1966, King Features stated that The Phantom was being published in 583 newspapers worldwide. At its peak, the strip was read by over 100 million people daily.

  1. Great Collection..Thank you very much. Nowadays children are engaged in computer games, other entertainments. I doubt, whether they enjoy comics and its vast world! As soon as I read these books, I go to my childhood, and forget everything..

    • That is true, the times they are a changing, and that is good i think. Although i still know enough children of young ages that love to read comics and other books, electronic or real.

  7. Hi boutje777,
    Following is the message my father has written for you, after reading the great comics uploaded by you-

    Dear boutje777,

    This is to express my heart felt gratitude for scanning and posting all these wonderful phantom comics on the net.

    You see,phantom has been my closest and dearest friend.

    Right from my kindergarten (1967) till my junior college (1981),I’ve begun my day and ended it with Indrajal comics.

    Whether it be January or November, in my highs or lows,during my exams or in vacations, my day began and ended with a few phantom/ mandrake comics in my hands & a few tucked away under my armpits.

    Fiercely protectively!!

    And Wow betide the mortal who’d dare to take my beloved comic away.

    I had each and every comic ever published in my own private collection.

    Alas- the ravages of time saw my collection dwindle drastically.

    I tried purchasing these comics, but a lot of them were simply not available.

    So crazy was I for phantom comics that I’d dream that I have regained all these comics and was smugly enjoying reading and re- reading and re- re- reading to my heart’s content. On waking up and seeing my hands empty, my depression knew no bounds.

    And then I realised that miracles DO happen!!

    Understanding my obsession for Phantom, my daughter spent her precious time on the net and I struck gold!!

    Every time she found a comic posted by you and downloaded it, I’d give a whoop of delight that’d be heard in a radius of a few kilometres around my residence.

    And such whoops began to be heard more and more.

    I’ve been extremely elated in the last few weeks on getting my beloved Indrajal treasure back.

    Each and every pic and every word evokes strong memories and an incredible sense of déjà vu.

    In a way, I’ve got my childhood back!

    I never tire of thanking and gleefully blessing you for opening up this treasure trove for me.

    Thank you SO much!!

  8. Dear bouteje777,
    My heartfelt thanks to you for making these priceless comics available to ardent fans like me. I grew up reading Phantom, Mandrake and Flash Gordon. I had stored my bound comics carefully but was heartbroken when many of these were worn out over a period of time. It was therefore a Eureka moment when I found this treasure trove which even includes rare comics I had missed. Many thanks again. God bless you.

    With regards,
    Sam
