Contains Classic Stories:

THE GOVERNOR AND SUZIE
Lee Falk / Wilson McCoy
Daily story 26 July 1943—26 February 1944
Rare adventure in which The Phantom removes his Mask and cowl to reveal his face to a dying female. Artist Wilson McCoy rises to an unexpected new height
PRINCESS VALERIE
Lee Falk / Ray Moore and Wilson McCoy
Daily story 18 February—13 July 1946
Lee Falk wrote this story especially for elder daughter Valerie and artists Moore and McCoy used photographs of Valerie as a five-year-old girl as reference.
U-TOWN
Lee Falk / Wilson McCoy
Daily story 27 February —19 May 1956
This adventure was written during the 1950s mining boom when all world powers looked to stockpile ores and minerals used in generating energy—and making explosives. The story still has special significance today
THE VALLEY OF NO RETURN
Lee Falk / Wilson McCoy
Daily story July 1—September 21, 1957
Rare story in which The Phantom demonstrates his near super-human physical powers—and creator Lee Falk polishes his skills in depicting The Phantom coming to the rescue of novice explorers in trouble in the jungle.
THE CROWN JEWELS OF CORBA
Lee Falk / Wilson McCoy
Daily story September 23—December 21, 1957
Another example of Lee Falk’s quite extraordinary understanding of greed and the need for power which has driven so many corporate tycoons and politicians in the past and the present.
THE GURK TWINS
Lee Falk / Wilson McCoy
Daily story August 8—October 29, 1960
Confusion still reigns about the official title for this story for which Lee Falk may have preferred The Jungle Olympics. Olympics or not, the Gurk Twins are the main characters.
CURSE OF THE SACRED IMAGE
Lee Falk / Sy Barry
Daily story 01April—24 August 1974
Sy Barry was at or near the peak of his creative powers when he inked this adventure and the images are proof no Phantom artist, past or present, bettered his jungle scenes.
