Phantom, The  by Lee Falk and Ray Moore (1130-) 1st appearance February 17, 1936, 1st Sunday May 28, 1939 - The Phantom was the story of the latest in a geneological line of sons who donned the purple costume and black mask of the protector of the Indian jungles.  Spurred by an act of Piracy some 400 years ago by the Singh Pirates, the line of the Phantoms was born.   The classic storyline created by Lee Falk set the standard for international adventure and crime fighting.  Accompanied by his faithful companion 'Devil', a pet wolf, the "Ghost who walks" was Kit Walker (previously 'Kip', previously Christopher Standish).  The love of the Phantom's life is Diana Palmer, a blonde socialite adventurer who captured Kit's heart before he inherited his Phantom mantle.   Together they shared a good portion of The Phantom's adventures which usually meant 3-4 month-long continuity stories.   The artwork for the Phantom was certainly classic golden age style.    Ray Moore contributed the best stretch of the strip until World War II intervened, afterward the strip would change hands to many different artists.    The constant on the strip was the creator and writer Lee Falk.    Falk would continue to contribute on the storylines into the current decade - close to 70 years on the strip, nothing less than remarkable.   The market for The Phantom is very hot.   Daillies are very hard to keep in stock and sell at a reasonably high premium - early strips are very difficult to get and command a very high premium.  Sundays also sell at a premium very well.  Offered as Tabs, Halves or smaller, High Premium sundays include the 1939, first-year pages and any page where the classic origin (with the orginal Phantom swearing his oath on the skull of his father's murderer) is reproduced.
