This latest Phantom story is really funny.
~ Jan W from Tewantin Qld Australia
Wouldn't the Moon be the other way around this time of night (wee hours)? Diana's bow always points its arrow at her brother, Apollo, the Sun, so the Sun would be above the horizon here. And a crescent Moon is close to the Sun. That's just a mnemonic I use to remember. Are the Sunday and daily stories going to meet up? The Phantom and Prince Valiant are my two favorite stories.
~ Elizabeth N. Stinson from Woodruff, SC
Nice to see Mike Manley back on the artwork. He has been having some serious health issues that prevented him from doing the Phantom for several months. He also does the artwork for the Judge Parker series, but was able to keep it up (with a occasional single strip fill in) during his health issues. "Cut and paste" also helped during this time. Judge Parker tends to be mostly "talking heads" and not as detailed as his excellence work on Phantom. Brett Belvin, who did the last story, is an assistant and inker for Manley and long time associate. He had to step in and take the full load for Manley during his illness. His work on the strip improved over his time on it.
~ DeW Coons from Central NOrth Carolina
Someone had fun with the names in the new adventure! Gradiose, Avarice, Ian Mollusk! Does the ship land in the Deep Woods?
~ Elizabeth N. Stinson from Woodruff
I'm so glad that Kit 22 is talking about The Dream with his dad. It's like a deep dark secret is about to be solved. Will he go back to India and the girl he likes, or maybe find Savarna? Stay tuned!
~ Elizabeth N. Stinson from Woodruff, SC
Thanks for providing this content. Really hard to find anything over here.
~ Luke from UK
Sorry to have to say this but the artwork of the daily strip is simply terrible and not up to the standard of previous stories and I would prefer to see the Sunday edition strip artist take over the daily strip as well. the daily strip faces do not look natural and the figures lack realistic proportions. The daily strip is not the Phantom strip of old
~ John from Bendigo, Australia
Glad this story seems to be going for tomb looters, maybe in an ancient city, and not about poachers, who should all be eaten by hungry beasts.
~ Elizabeth Stinson from Woodruff
I’ve been following phantom for as long as I can remember and I’m in my 80s so that should tell you how long. The new cartoonist for the daily phantom comics I find a little disturbing. The characters don’t even look like they are the same characters but that’s just my humble opinion. I will continue to enjoy seven days of the phantom of Cours but I do miss the old familiar faces.
~ Violet from Massachusetts
I like this site. I concur with the comment of paul from Brisbane.
~ Tom Wakelyn from Virginia
I have been reading these comics for 24 years and I can't get enough.
~ Nathan from Shivers
Just want to say I admire the true courage of the creators of The Phantom for not bowing to Chinese censorship. If you read Chapter 9 of Peter Schweizer's new book "Blood Money," you'll see how they shape American movie culture by not mentioning Tibetans (the Mountain City) or having dark-skinned characters. Also, the Phantom hates fascism. Thank you.
~ Elizabeth Stinson from Woodruff, SC
Whew, Thanks.
~ Rajesh Seth from india
I am still recovering from the shock of missing the Phantom strip for the past few days, after reading it every day for the past few years. Thank you so much.
~ Paul from Brisbane
Looks good, Aman -- thank you so much for fixing this!
~ Cathy R. from PA, USA
The Comics section of The Phantom Trail should be working correctly again. Please check and let me know if you find any issues. Thanks!

Been reading the Phantom since the late fifties. Named my first dog Devil. She wasn’t a wolf, but a Doberman Pinscher. Found this website when the local newspaper discontinued the Phantom. That could have been 20 years ago. Aman, hope you figure out a solution to your problem.
~ Vince Binder from Indiana
Hey everyone, ComicsKingdom has made some drastric changes to their website after several years. Those changes seem to have impacted certain integrations that Phantom Trail relies upon. I'll look into this and try my best to get things working again on Phantom Trail website. Until then please visit the original source of comic strips directly:
~ Aman (webmaster)
We are in March. The 2nd why are we still reading feb. strips
~ Mark from Westerville, Ohio
Dear Phantomtrail, I follow Your site since years, but I don't read daily but always all strips of the week at weekend. So I'm shocked when I noticed now, that the strips are not available for one week anymore but only for one day 😢 It's a pity (after years I missed five dailies... 😭)
~ Thor Rasmussen from Kiel
Telling the story backward with previously shown strips. Bah.
~ Richard
Leap Day bug?
~ Cathy R. from PA, USA
Phantom phan since I could read. Can't find another way to access these comics.
~ Peter from Qld Australia
Why 26-27 not visble
~ rajesh seth from india
I have read The Phantom for 70 years and enjoyed until this "new artist" started drawing ridiculous faces and figures. With all due respect to the current artist"s talents, please go elsewhere and return the strip to DECENT illustrations. I would even tolerate AI generated art over these elementary illustrations. TERRIBLE.
~ George Gris from Alabama
Looks lie it Jr is going to relate an event that was part of a training/testing journey that the Phantom too e the twins on. It started on Jan 16 2006 and is considered to be Daily strip 216, called "The Challenge" in some listing or "The Jungle Trek" in other listing. In it the twins are lead to believe that they are on their own and face difference dangers and challenges. Though they are actually guarded by their dad and several warriors. The Phantom sums up their adventure to Diana by saying "Kit and Heloise hanging off sheer cliffs? Swept away on wild rivers? Chased by lions? What's to tell?" The story is available through the archive here on the Phantom Trail site or by going to Comic Kingdom and reading it from there. (The Phantom Trail archive is just a link to the Comic Kingdom Archive,) It is a fun, light hearted story about "family" and does tie into the idea of "patience" and keeping your wits and using your head. Worth the time to go and read the original. Story by Tony DePaul with art by Paul Ryan.
~ Dew Coons from Central North Carolina
This week, sunday - Lee Falks is wondering 'Hmm, So New techniques are wandering into my Protege's head !!"
~ Rajesh Seth from India
Maybe the Phantom thought that mysterious being had crept into the Skull Cave again. Except Devil slept on, unalarmed.
~ Elizabeth Stinson from Woodruff, SC
The first Phantom strip was published in February of 1936. Lee Falk did the art on the first story. Falk would continue to write the strip until his death in January of 1999. Two more daily stories and three Sunday stores that he had completed would be printed after his death. He authored a total of 151 Sunday stories and 195 daily stories. Falk had created the Mandrake the Magician strip two years earlier and also wrote in until his death.
~ Dew Coons from Central North Carolina
Are those Bandar sitting around the campfire? Get your poisoned arrows ready!
~ Elizabeth Stinson from Woodruff, SC
Thank you, DeW Coons, for the good information. How wonderful to have the whole collection! When did the Phantom, the first costumed superhero, appear in newspapers? After the artwork on the previous storyline, the current art takes getting used to, but I wish I could draw as well! I'd put my stories into comicbook form. Latest strips remind me of "Conan the Barbarian" turning a wheel and getting big muscles that served him well later in the movie.
~ Elizabeth Stinson from Woodruff, SC
I had to laugh when the disgruntled Phantom slouches on his throne and says "This is a long story..."
~ Elizabeth Stinson from Woodruff, SC
I really do not the recent comic strips Art. The huge grins just make me winch
~ Alexius Nemo from Milwaukee
Elizabeth ask on Jan 24th about the art for the Ichang era of the Wonder Woman comics. Those begin in November of 1968 in Wonder Woman 179 and lasted until 1973 (issue #204). Mike Sekowsky was the artist on the original issues. Denny O'Neil the original writer. He continued to draw Wonder Woman until 1971 and issue 197. Mike is best known for his work on Justice League beginning with the tryout issues in Showcase comics, drawing 61 of the first 63 issues of JLA. He also had a lengthy career doing romance comics in the 50s and early 60s before the return of superheroes to comics. He also did several the "humorous" series for DC including Inferior Five, Angel and Ape, and Captain Carrott. He passed away in 1989 age 65 Bret Belvins was born in 1960, he would have only been 7 then the new WW appeared. So he was not the artist. But their faces are similiar in that both artiest tend to draw oversize smiling faces. While he has done work for DC (mostly for Batman), there are no issues of Wonder Woman listed in his credits.
~ Dew Coons from central
The current story is a retelling of a story that appeared in the Sunday Phantom comics in 1953. Also called "The Chan." McCoy did the original art - and of course Faulk the script. It is normally numbers as "S(unday)034". I have a complete collection of the Phantom strips - daily and Sundays - and no matter how much I search I have not yet found the one were they got sprayed with the Joker's Laughing gas so that they have a permanent smile fixed on their faces. Hopefully with DePaul will give us the full up were they get cured before the non stopping grinning drives away all the readers. In order to include them in my collection I have had to go into my graphic editor and wipe out the enormous grins on their faces. It at least makes the rest of the art "tolerable" (but still not good.)
~ DeW Coons from Central North Carolina
Old story, believe it was in a GOLD KEY comic book. I want know if the last story was real are a dream? It went on long enought.
~ Walter Hutcherson from Wellford SC
I think the prince is about to get four scars on his face. Phantoms don't pick wimpy women.
~ Elizabeth Stinson from Woodruff, SC
I paid a small donation by PayPal today, but I still get the 'donate' request instead of the daily Phantom option. What should I do?
~ Glen from Adelaide Australia
~ Rajesh Seth from India
Hi, The new Phantom sketches dont meaure up tp any standard ! Please do something
~ Rajesh Seth from India
The new art is not very good. It looks like a child is drawing the characters and the depth I have enjoyed is gone. Not a fan!
~ Doug McKenzie from Dallas, TX
Sorry, I forgot to ask in previous comment: Did the current artist ever draw Wonder Woman for DC Comics? Diana reminds me of the Wonder Woman story with I Ching. Thanks again.
~ Elizabeth Stinson from Woodruff, SC
Back in the early 1960s, I had the opportunity to look through old bound newspapers in a university library, and I especially enjoyed checking the daily Phantom stories. I could almost swear I saw a chain on the skull throne such as is being described now. Diana's change in appearance goes back to those old strips. Is #21 being haunted in his dreams by an ancestor? Perhaps one whose story hasn't been told yet, since he doesn't remember reading about it? Who was chained? Thank you.
~ Elizabeth Stinson from Woodruff, SC
Not sure what's going on in "the Chain" maybe another dream story, but have never see so many teeth, in one frame Phantom looks evil
~ John Martin from Queensland
The new artist draws Diana like she is a teenager- don’t like it.
~ Bill Ridout from Waynesburg PA
illustration of "The Chain' sucks"
~ Sudipta from Kolkata
Not a fan of the new artist
~ Doug dobe from Buffalo ny
I am not pleased with the artwork, especially the faces drawn in "The Chain."
~ Jim Hoey from Florida
That was one amazing story !!!!
~ Bob
Love this site. It so easy and reliable. I discovered Phantom in the 1950's when I was a kid and have been a fan ever since. I always checked out all the comics when I got my hands on the papers; Sundays were the best! I was really annoyed when the newspapers withdrew all the beloved comics from publication and WITHOUT EXPLANATION! Such a petty thing to do!
~ Chris from Brisbane, Australia.
Phantom become my ideal!
~ Sudipta from Kolkata
There can never be any line except the Walker line, unless The Phantom dies without a son. The line follows the father name not the mother. If followed the mothers it would have had over twenty different names for the lines. That is why it it is four hundred years old Walker line. Come on writers get it right. If Diana and her kids left The Phantom then he would have to figure out how to keep the line going.
~ Walter Hutcherson from Wellford
Read Phantom. & Mandrake comics daily... they're great.

Love the Phantom comics
~ Merv Lilburne from Victoria
I've always loved reading the Phantom comics in the papers. However, so many news outlets are no longer running the comics. I'd love to see just what this web site has to offer.
~ Merv Lilburne from Victoria
When I first began reading comic strips about 'The Phantom' I was in the 6th grade. To be honest I was amazed that a man could belong to a family like this! The Phantom line started with the sole survivor of a ship that was attacked by Pirates, back in the late 1400's. He was saved by a group of Pygmies who nursed him back to health until one day, he found a dead Pirate on the beach who was wearing his fathers clothes. After he had cleaned the skull of the dead Pirate down to bone, he swore the First "Oath of the Skull" then each first born son of a 'Phantom' would return to the Skull cave to bury his father, put on the Phantom suit, swear the 'Oath of the Skull' then return to the main cave where the pygmy bandar would say in unison "The Phantom is dead, Long Live the Phantom!"

Good job I am reading regularly...the CK site has too many tech glitches and no one seems to be bothered

This is the first Wayne that commented. Thanks again for the timezone change. All is well and looking forward to visiting your site for a long time. Thanks
~ Wayne from Ohio
For detailed feedback, please send an email to webmaster (at) phantomtrail (dot) com and as always I will do my best to address what I can. Some visitors had helped with early access feedback for the redesign, and I appreciate the inputs received during that phase. As mentioned on Facebook, the redesign was needed to update the web technologies used (so that the website can run for more years to come) and also to address the reading experience of the growing number of visitors using mobile phones and tablets. Thanks to everyone for your continued encouragement and interest!
~ Aman King (webmaster)
Your redesign doesn’t make things easier to work with the website. What was wrong with the old design?
~ Wayne
Following for years
~ Shane from Sydney Australia
I have found a way to work with the timezones, and made a change such that even Australian visitors will now be happier than before. The new strips should start appearing based on Australian timezone. Let me know if you discover any issues.
~ Aman King (webmaster)
On the topic of Comics Kingdom, I also want to clarify that visitors should prefer going to website whenever they can. The Phantom Trail is only meant to be a complementary view for those who prefer a comic book style interface for reading adventure strips instead of a single strip at a time. Additionally, for those with a Comics Kingdom subscription, the story based navigation of The Phantom Trail is quite unique, for enjoying past stories.
~ Aman King (webmaster)
Thanks to everyone who is sharing feedback about the timezone difference. It's a very helpful signal, so am not looking at it as criticism at all. I'm glad to know that it was one of the value proposition for the website, even though an unintended feature on my part. Timezones are one of the most difficult things in software. I'll need some time to look at what options might exist. I have already put this on top of my backlog.
~ Aman King (webmaster)
This isn't criticism, and we sincerely wish you the best. Unfortunately, it is not convenient. Whether you realized it or not, seeing the Phantom comic early was probably the main reason a lot of us came to this page. If that is not going to happen anymore, I hope it doesn't diminish the traffic on your site. Again, this isn't criticism or an attack, but this is a big deal for a lot of us. I am not saying I would not visit this page anymore out of spite, I don't mean it that way, only that the reason for doing so is no longer available, so I will just read the regular comic sites instead first thing in the morning.
~ Wayne from Ohio
If you have noticed a timezone difference for a new strip to appear, that's because the Phantom Trail now displays the strips as and when they appear on Comics Kingdom at page. Hope it's not too inconvenient, but yes, will need some getting used to. Comics Kingdom website runs on Eastern Time based on their FAQ page.
~ Aman King (webmaster)
read it every day
~ shane coster from australia
Agree with Wayne’s comment. Long time supporter and I’ve have really enjoyed reading tomorrow’s Phantom at 8p the night before.
~ Mark Singleton from Atlanta
Hi, really enjoy this site. With the old format, I used to see the next days comic appear around 7-8 PM EST in the US on the day before. I really enjoyed seeing the latest comic so early. With the new format, this doesn't seem to happen anymore. Is this something that will no longer happen. The Phantom and Prince Valiant ( I know PV doesnt appear here), are the best comics out there, in a class all by themselves. Thanks again though for this site. Please bring back the feature that updated the next day early if possible.
~ Wayne from Ohio
Thanks for this... A Phan since 1965 ...

Thank you to all my visitors for the encouragement I have been receiving about this new look! That makes me feel that my labour-of-love has been worthwhile. I'm still learning about PayPal Donate option. It seems to work across many countries but not from some countries. I will look for alternatives for such cases. Some of you might remember Gumroad, where I hosted my pay-what-you-like, fan-created digital comics. Gumroad has hiked their transaction fees, so I get less of what you give. I suppose the economy is hitting everyone hard. I hope the economic situation gets back under control soon. I'm simply glad that I can keep this website running with your support!

The drawing of daily Phantom and of sunday Phantoms are different. but its fine. The only thing isssue is the diffent dress of the different phantoms, that becomes boring. It is the present type of Phantom that we are interested in.

Love this website
~ Damage
TheOneThatisBlazing, thanks for suggesting Replit, looks promising. I tried it out along with some other free alternatives. Turns out most don't support the old versions of the tech used in this age-old website, and also have resource limitations in their free tier. I suppose it's like trying to play VHS tapes in an era of digital video streaming; only a few places have VHS players for rent. :) That said, Heroku has launched a low-cost pricing tier, so that'll help if the usage is within limits. Cheers!
~ Aman (webmaster)
I follow the Phantom religiously thanks to this website. Please keep it going
~ Pedro from Tasmania
You could probably use replit which is free
~ TheOneThatisBlazing
How much do you need each month to keep the website alive? How much extra to give you the resources to fix the Mandrake page so that the bottom of each strip is not cut off?
~ Anonymous
Thanks, everyone, for the support that has been coming in. Heroku will bill based on actual website usage, so I will know better from Dec end onwards (similar to energy or gas bills, I suppose). Currently I anticipate it to be around USD 20 per month but it can be less or more. This will essentially be the running cost for the website infrastructure. I don't need any payment to fix issues that visitors notice on this website. I will happily make time to fix those issues when I can, especially on Comic Strips section. Feel free to email me to get my quick attention. I do check the Guestbook as well now and then. It does look like the edge issue of the Mandrake comics has gotten worse. I will try to make a fix soon. Thanks for bringing it up. Not many Mandrake fans among the "Phans" who visit, so I am glad there are folks who enjoy that strip too.
~ Aman (webmaster)
I am very pleased to see the phantomtrail site. I have been a phantom reader daily for many decades. I was very sad when the Adelaide Advertiser and Sunday Mail stopped printing the comics. I was delighted to discover your site. I have made a small donation and may add to it, even though I am retired with a limited income.

When did anyone become a match for The Phantom. I never read that comment brfore. Now I know there is something wrong with the team writing The Phantom.

I have been a reader of the phantom for about 70 years to be honest the only reason that I buy the daily newspaper is for the phantom strip I can’t understand the thoughts of the owners to remove all the comic strips from thier papers in this crazy world it was just a piece of escapism to look forward to.

Life long Phantom fan - only comic I have read since my teen years. The world needs a few more role models like GWW.
~ Mark Singleton from Atlanta GA USA
As much as I and other love the 21st Phantom, the strip must either lock itself in time and not let anyone age, or you must allow a 22nd Phantom to exist. You may allow the current to retire and keep him alive. At least ne Phantom knew his grandfather, so why not the 21st become a doting grandfather.
~ Walter Hutcherson from United States

I am tired of your continuous attempts to kill the Phantom off and insinuate that his son Kit is waiting in the wings to take over. That story line is as overdone and uninteresting as the Lone Ranger, vigilante form of justice he represents. Hire some new writers!!

never miss a day...
~ George M. Carpenter from United States
The Phantom is my favorite newspaper comic strip. I began reading the Sunday strip about year 1953, that being because the daily strip wasn't published in my newspaper. I don't know why The Phantom is so appealing to me. Maybe because of his lack of super power, the implied possibility of death in each adventure, the honor of multiple generations of men who keep the original pledge of the first Phantom (whose pledge could never be enforced by him), the ability of a legend--the man who cannot die--to sway imagination of the jungle folk, and the complicity of the Bandar who know that there is no Ghost Who Walks but maintains the legend because they perceive that good arises from it.
~ Robert L. Carroll from Vienna, Virginia USA
The Phantom is among a long list of favorite newspaper comics.I really miss having a decent comics section in the Sunday paper.
~ Bart Fong from United States
Is The 21st Phantom dead? Is it Kit or Heloise who takes over? Do they find out how he dies? Another story?

Is Moz right? Bet The Phantom has been wounded, maybe fatally.

Reading Sunday story, looking at the 3rd Phantom, makes me wish we could have stories showing the 1st thru the 20th. If for no other reason but see how they changed costumes and the way they approached problems over the centuries.
~ Walter A Hutcherson from Wellford SC
Enjoy reading the Phantom each day. A longtime favorite.
~ Casper Wepener from Gauteng South Africa
Amen to that. Part of the problem is people do not read like they use to. Also the Phantom, while a hero, is not like what the superhero movies are showing now. The last movie, while okay, did not stick to the real meaning of the Phantom. To me the real story is a family of heros who follow their ancestors for justice. Something not found a lot in our world today.
~ Walter A Hutcherson from Wellford SC
A good service for fans of the Phantom and for Mandrake. Thank you. I have always loved reading the Phantom newspaper strips since about 1950. Looking at the comments in the Guestbook, so many commenters are old (in years) like me. Where are the young readers? I hope that the 400-year saga doesn't end when the old fans die out.

This Lucha Libre series has been one of the best story lines ever. Well Done! Very well done!
Lee Falk and Wilson McCoy must be turning in their graves. Am 76 years of age, and "The Phantom" has been my favorite all of these years. Was actually read to me before I could read. Story lines seem to be suffering.

I have been a fan of the Phantom since I was a kid in the early 60s. It is great to be reading them still
~ Lee Thomas from Seattle, WA
Excellent!!! Been following the Phantom for 0ver 60 years!!!
~ Danny Clark from Paris, TN, USA
I have been reading some Indrajal from the early 1960's.They are great,not only good stories of The Phantom, but other stories are not only good but very educational. I just want to keep on reading all of them. Hope I can find some more of them.
~ Walter A Hutcherson from United States
Growing up in the 50s and 60s I never knew there was a daily Phantom strip. None of the news outlets carried the daily; however, I was fortunate to find a few that did so on Sunday's and followed the Sunday strips for over two decades. It was only in the 90s that I discovered the daily strips on line, but finding a source [my regular is the Seattle PI now] was catch as catch can. I now walk the Phantom Trail as it has not failed me in the continuity of storyline for the months I have been tracking on it.
~ Roger R Bedford from Manchester, NJ, USA
I, so much, enjoy the stories of The Phantom. He has been my favorite "Super Hero" character since early childhood. I appreciate your efforts to keep the character alive. I read them every day
~ Michael Bard from Michigan
My father was a fan of The Phantom comic strip since he was a child and so I also became a fan. Sadly, when I moved from my home town the newspaper in my new hometown didn't carry the strip, so I went almost 15 years without The Phantom Comic strip in my life. When I discovered your website I was happy to see that there was a fan of The Phantom and that his website was devoted to the daily as well as Sunday versions. I will be an ardent fan of this site as long as it is available. Thanks again!

I have tried to read all the comic books in the US about The Phantom. Most are pretty good, others are great, and a few take a direction which I wish they did not. I love the 21st Phantom but it is time his son took his place. For a hero who is really mortal, with no restart of the time line, it is time for the legend to move on to the next step. Another thing, too many people in the outer world knows the truth about him. This should not be, only his family and the Bandar should know the truth. No others! We need the legend. Sure people are not stupid, they know in their mind that no one lives 400 hundred years, but we still believe in things we know cannot be true. But if over the centuries hundred if not thousands of people have seen The Phantom and passed these sightings down to their friends and relatives and he is seen looking the same 50 or 80 years later then they and others begin to believe.
~ Walter A Hutcherson from United States
Mr. King, I wont say that I enjoy the phontom for the past 60 some odd years. But I see that people Haven't notice that He's at least 101yrs old. I wonder where did he find the Fountain of Youth? The Kit in the Hemalaia should bve around 45 and there should be another Kit sent off to where he is. The Phantom now is the 21th and Kit is the 22 and there should be another to be the 23rd. So why have there been an Genaration miss. I wish I couls look that good even at my age. (73) Why did Lee before he died not have Kit be the 21 byfore now? Kit and his sister should be in there's 40's and not in there 20's. I hope you can shead a little light on the story. Plees do drop me a E-Mail and tell me what is going on. Bruce Brock in Gardendale,AL USA.

I am looking for a particular Sunday panel from the early 1990s, in which the Phantom is an arena and forced to fight man-eating lions or tigers. I was hoping to find it in the archive.
~ Scott from Los Angeles
I still love this story. I have been a fan for about 60yrs and wish I had a lot of the comic book from your coutry. I do't know if Lee Falk every notice but,when Stan Lee started the Silver Suffer he used the same body and fram as the Phamton. If you can get Disney then look and you'll find the Silver Suffer. It's a cartoon but just notice that the Body stail id that of the Phantom,Other then his body beening white it's look like the Phantom and his eyes also. The only thing diffrent is the color of the close. I know it will be a long time befour I hear from you. But please let me know what you thank.
~ Bruce Brock from United States
I have been reading the Phantom since I was about 8 and I credit it in teaching me how to read. 65 years later I am still a Phantom devotee

hi, Thanks for doing this. how do I become a member? ie aceess the comic strips?
~ S.Sardus from usa
I have ben a Fan for over the past 60yrs and still do. I notice that you made a big boo boo. ot the 15th you show the guy getting arrows in the arm and through his shart and on the 17th you show that the arrows are just going through his arms and not his shart. How did that Happen? But it's still a good story. Keep it comming. Also why is it that we can't get the Comic Book over in the USA. The only way is through the Daley and Sunday Paper? When are you going to do Davil's story? Now Davil has to be atleast 100 now and also Hero? I've seen where Davil is pick up in the snow. But I haven't seen the rest of it. I wish we could get the comic books here. Thank you .

For my money, the Phantom is the best daily comic around. Best written, best drawn--very cinematic and nicely composed panels--and it's even socially meaningful.

Comics Kingdom have fixed the issues, including full Phantom archives access for Comics Kingdom subscribers.
~ Aman King
Phantom Trail webmaster here. There seems to be an issue with Comics Kingdom for Phantom comic strips. They are looking into it.

i like the site but at the moment the strips are not appearing just blank screens
~ peter from melbourne
Phantom Trail webmaster here. I was able to fix the technical issue: the comic strips should be available again. Enjoy! Thanks to those who informed me about the issue and also left kind encouraging words on the Guestbook - my vacation is going well (I appreciate my family allowing me a quick break from my vacation break, to fix the website!).
~ Aman King
For those with active Comics Kingdom subscriptions, it appears that full archives have been affected by the recent changes. I will take a look at this issue later (which affects only Comics Kingdom archives, not the recent comics).

Aman King - such a pleasant surprise to see the comics back. Thank you. Enjoy the rest of your holiday.

I enjoy both the Phantom and Mandrake on CK. But I must say the "Prince Valiant" is my all time favorite for over 60 years. My Mother read PV to me every Sunday from the late lamented Philadelphia Bulletin.

When are you people going to get back to the actual story? Or are you on holiday or gone bezerk?
~ Julie from Kingston Jamaica
I've been using this site to view my favorite comic book hero for over 10 years, but recently you've changed it so you can only view one week at a time. I've signed up but again I can only view one week, none of the archived comics. And the graphics changed too...if you compare "Gravelines Prison storyline with Diana Palmer being imprisoned with todays' storyline you can tell how different the graphics are. But I will still keep coming to get my fix! Love the Phantom!
~ Teriann Petti from Massachesetts
I like phantom but it is hard to follow on Comics kingdom since I only get to a computer once in a while. Now I cannot log on here because I cannot see any comments at comics kingdom where I have a paid subscription so I guess I cannot look at comics here anymore. No comments are shown at comicskingdom so you might consider changing your criteria for entry. Goodbye

I love coming here Nd reading the daily's. The Phantom has been one my favorite comic characters since I started reading him over 50 years ago.

When is the phantom going to start wearing a uniform of state of art woven ballistic fabric like the suits the president wears instead of the current one which lets knives and bullets through. Pretty stupid to wear cotton or wool blend to a knife fight.

I have been reading dailies and Sunday strips but now the site opens. Why ?
~ Krishna Manandhar from Kathmandu, Nepal
Thanks. I was introduced to Phantom in a very funny way, in 1961,may be it was in Class 1 or 2. But seriously in 1966 or 1967 when in class 5, to ward off loneliness of bedrest, Hooked since then.

I have been reading The Phantom since my childhood. It was fascinating and still i feel the same.
~ Dr K K Sarma from India
Been reading The Phantom since it was introduced in my local paper about 65 years ago. It started with birth of the 21st Phantom. As sad as it would make me I believe it is time for the legacy to continue. It is time to start getting ready for the 22nd Phantom. It is his history and I do not want the reboots all others are doing with their characters. You have been allowing Kit and Heloise to age so you must allow The Phantom also.
~ Walter Hutcherson
Love it

I read Phantom in the Miami News as a child. I discovered the strip on-line as an adult a picked up where I left off. Until yesterday, April 13, 2019, I enjoyed the daily respite from political commentary The Phantom provided.

I have read this comic for 50 years, now you bring Donald Trump into it . up your ass, I'M done. he is the best president we ever had .

One of the first comic strips I viewed, even before I could read.. and that is over 60 years ago, and today I may have read my last. Comics are for dreams... Politics is the real life we escape from .. even if it's just a few moments! Shame on YOU!

Love the Phantom been reading the comics since I was very young I also read the strips in the newspapers like the current daily strips
~ Edward Pickering from Sydney Australia
For the past two years I have been reading the Phantom dailies and Sundays. I first discovered it around 1970, when I was a 6 year old kid learning to read. My sister urged me to read comics, they're easy reading and the pictures help to understand the story. I loved the Phantom immediately, especially the occasional re-telling "For those who came in late." So glad to see him still going strong. And I love how Heloise has stepped into her legacy!

Wish there was Phantom in Canada but thats what the internet is for I guess.

I've been enjoying Phanthom for more years than I want to admit. It never gets old..thank you
~ Violet from Boston, Massachusetts
As one of those that have come in late. I just noticed something that peeved me for years about reading the last 7 strips on KFS in that. Here, you can read down without having to scroll down then up to read them in order there. It is so much more enjoyable not to have to do that. Thanks to whoever did that, My hat is off to them.

Good seeing the Phantom's daughter "KICK THE ASS OF THE EVIL"

What gives with all of the negative comments? I think the Phantom strip is great. Let's not forget that it is a comic strip. I have fond memories of my childhood reading Phantom, Mandrake, Prince Valiant, Dick Tracy, Blonde, etc. In any event, keep up the good work. I really appreciate your efforts. Happy holidays and God bless.

Awesome work buddy... I had grown up with the Phantom, in the Bengali newspaper, Anandabazaar Patrika, since I when I cant remember! I seemed to have always known him. Even before I knew how to read and write, I saw Phantom on the newspaper strips, and when I started reading the Indrajal Comics in colour, I thought, Hey, I know Phantom for ever!U brought back Phantom to be after all these yrs. Its just like visiting an old friend, my hero. Its just like flippin thru the pages of the Indrajal comics.Keep up the gr8 work man.

Lovely site.. lots of stuff... Simply Great.. Now for my query... My dad subscribed to and collected Indrajal Comics from day 1. I first lay my hands on the huge stack when i was bout 6. sadly, he sold out the entire pile after i had been thru it once or so. Ever since, i have been tryin to collect the Indrajals, mainly Phantoms n Mandrakes, from wherever I can.. I NEED HELP AND ADVICE.. PLEASE..

You have created a very beautiful home page...a delight for the ears as well as the eyes. Your poetry, that I have read to date, is most interesting and clever. Good luck. (Do you remember Rejoys from WTB?R?...she gave me your link.

Great Job!! Can you post scanned comic books on your website? Can we talk to publishers for copyrights etc.?
~ Pranay from Logan, US
Aman , I have plugged your site , at the Yahoo! group , No Superheroes Allowed , which I co-host , when I wrote about Mandrake !
~ Walter L. from SF , CA , USA
I was/am an earnest fan of this Super Hero. No other Comic Hero can replace this character of Lee Falk. I would like to contact all the persons (fans/admirers) having the Old Numbers of Phantom Comics.

This is a good site , and I've visited here before , but , I will admit that I am just wondering if something has happened to Guran ( Bryan Shedden )'s Deep Woods site ! I haven't been able to get to it for the last 3 or so days , now , today , connects me to some , completely non-Phantom-related , commercial site ! I'm just trying to find out , and , since I'm relativel not all that connected to Pahntom fandom - really , Bryan's site has been my main link - I'm trying any place that seems likely ! To repeat myself , don't take this as a put-down of your , fine , site , which I'll visit agin , and find interesting . Hey , are you nable to get the Spider-man daily now ? I myself have a Yahoo! group ( Not an independent site , do I have to apologize for that ? ) for the Spider-Man daily strip , " The Spider Syndicates " , . Thank you !
~ Walter Loyd Lilly from San Francisco , U. S. A.
I should add that I've been able to re-establish contact with Guran's site , at this point . Thank you !!!!!!!
~ W. L. Lilly from SF , US
Very interesting site - meticulously done.

~ Anshuman Jakhmola from India
HiCool website! I love Fantomen (The Phantom). Bye Erik
~ Erik Engberg from Skelleftea Sweden
Great site! I searched for some weeks to find online strips from Phantom and Mandrake (and Flash Gordon up to the 90s) and finally found your site which has at least a few years of Phantom and some Mandrake. Thanks for that! I've been a fan of the three mentioned strips since they ran in our local newspaper, when I was a child. Alas they dropped them in 1972, so I had a long hard time searching for new (and old adventures). I'm still looking for most of the old dailies (especially the 60s and 70s), but I'm more confident than ever, that I will eventually get to know all stories. Keep on the good work with your site, I will drop in at least 2 or 3 times a weeks.Cheers,Bernd
~ Bernd Timmermann from Oldenburg, Germany

Thanks for all your hard work for putting up this wonderful sight.this takes me back to my childhood. Please don't let me grow up.I LOVE/WORSHIP THE PHANTOM (VAITAAL in Hindi). Well that's what Inderjal comics used to call Him, and I only know him by Vaitaal.Why don't you use the name vaitaal as well.Devil was called SHERA, Hero was called TOOFAAN and so on.Give it some thoght.ThankyouRana

~ Neil from india
cool, i am a big fan of all three comics
~ Thomas Thalakottur from United States of America
Great site about Phantom. Keep it up! Loads of info. I added it in my Favs. Yes, I was sorry not to see any references to Indrajaal Comics, the actual publisher and in my opinion the organisation behind this success of Phantom (Vetal...Chalta Phirta Pret) in India. Just for the information, Indrajaal Comics was part of Times of India or Indian Express (I am not too sure which one) publication.
~ Binay Kumar Pandey from Delhi - India
great site, enjoyed reading the "chronicles" phantom head peak was carved by michealangelo as suggested by previous guest. although mention is only made of this in a very few storiesand many more do state that it was a work of nature. I disagree with Vir's comment - the Phantom has not walked his last mile!best wishesDave
~ Dave from Perth Australia
Excellent collection. reminds me of the good ol times with Indrajal Comics. UR comic strip collection is great but I want to start from the begining and dont know what date to use. Tried a few and got Javascript errors. can U let me know the start and end date of UR collection?thanks and keep up the great work.rams
~ RAMS from USA
G'day Aman,Just dropped in for a look. Enjoyed your site and will visit often. Regards Jon
~ Jon Cookson from Rockhampton, Australia
Only one problem with the site, Aman, the information in "The Phantom's Country" about "Phantom Head Peak". It is not a work of nature but a gift from Emperor Joonakar I believe, designed by Michalangelo. Correct me if I'm wrong with any of those names but from memory, that is what is it. Great site otherwise!
~ miss tagama from Syd, Australia
