Writer Lee Falk had a hand in two of the most influential adventure strips of all time. Both The Phantom and Mandrake the Magician had a powerful effect on the early American comic books. The Phantom was one of
the first masked comic heroes, establishing the pattern for "long underwear"
characters to this very day.
Mandrake, though not as famous today, was equally popular. Early comic books
swarmed with top-hatted magicians trying to follow Mandrake's mighty footsteps.

of the magic master's greatest adventures. Inventive stories and the
atmospheric artwork of unjustly-forgotten Phil Davis make these books a treat
