    The Phantom comics are fantastic and very nostalgic for me. My father used to get me a lot of Phantom comics when I was a child. I remember that time, I insisted that my father tell me the stories in each comic in detail. He always obliged me and went out walking often with my father(with my little hand in his) just to hear those stories again and again.
    Thanks, boutje 777!
