The first, original, and best masked hero to ever grace the pages of comic strips and comic books returns with Hermes Press' new complete reprint of "The Phantom". Referred to by comic strip historian Maurice Horn as the 'granddaddy of all costumed superheroes', "The Phantom" was created in 1936 by Lee Falk with artwork by Ray Moore. The strip hit the funny pages of newspapers well before the "Dark Knight" or "Superman" made their first appearances and has been acknowledged as an influence on every 'masked man of mystery' since. "The Phantom" set the standard for action, adventure, intrigue, and romance in adventure comic strips and comic books. Now, Hermes Press will offer the entire run of the comic strip, which will span over seventy years of "The Phantom" legend, ending with artist Sy Barry's run on the strip in 1994. As with Hermes Press' critically acclaimed reprint of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, the new definitive reprint of "The Phantom" will introduce the strip to a whole new generation of readers and give fans of the 'Ghost Who Walks' a chance to revisit the series all over again.
