Precinct1313’s all time favourite comic-book characters..daily countdown.
We will be counting down our fifteen favourite comic-book characters of all time, why fifteen you ask? because there are too damn many we love to only have a top ten! Remember these are ‘our’ favourite characters, I am sure you will have others you feel should have been included, so please feel free to tell us who you would prefer to have in the list and why. So let us begin with….
NUMBER 15 is: The Phantom.
The phantom- the ghost who walks, we wrote a character origin on this very site recently of the Phantom, so we will keep this brief. The Phantom was created in 1936 by Lee Falk for King Syndicates, initially as a newspaper strip. A mythical, believed to be immortal character who has protected the jungles of Bengalla for over four centuries from greed and piracy. Riding into battle on his white steed called Hero and accompanied by his faithful wolf Devil, the Phantom’s adventures are still being published (by Dynamite comics) seventy eight years after his initial appearance!
