The Phantom

”The original superhero”

Before Batman, before Spiderman, before Deadpool, the comic world’s first masked superhero had already been striking fear into the dark hearts of the wicked for years.

The original costumed hero, The Phantom, has no superhuman powers. He relies on his physical strength, skill with weapons and fearsome reputation to fight crime.

Created by Lee Falk in 1936, the comics are rich with historical references, iconic characters, and the perpetual struggle between good and evil. The Phantom is presented as a modern-day myth that both informs and entertains the loyal readers.

The Phantom has become extremely popular especially in the Nordic countries and Australia. He is published in over 500 newspapers worldwide, including about 100 in the Nordics.
