The Phantom Shows Support for Worthy Cause

Cartoon characters recognized around the world, including The Phantom, have joined forces to empower children with cancer and show them and others that bald is beautiful.

Bald Cartoons is a global awareness project that aims to spread the message that a child with cancer deserves to be seen just like any other child.

The twins are growing up!

IT’S BEEN EIGHT YEARS since the daily pages took note of how fast the twins are growing up. Time flies faster for us than it does in the Phantom universe. Even so, Kit and Heloise are overdue for a starring role in the dailies.

We’ve talked it over here at Phantom Central—editor Brendan Burford and I—and we think it’s time for the Walker family to start thinking seriously about launching the twins into young adulthood. Look for stories on the big decisions they face by the summer of next year.

Lara Bell’s grand tour

It’s not often that outsiders get to see the treasures of antiquity guarded by the Ghost Who Walks. In 1941, with Ray Moore at the drawing board, a gang of thugs and layabouts took advantage of the Phantom’s absence, did battle with the Bandar and looted Skull Cave. The Phantom knew he was on the right trail when he saw a Chinese emperor’s 2,000-year-old necklace hanging around the pretty neck of Rita, known in those days as a swell dame, a real doll. It all ended badly for the gang, as you may imagine.
