The Complete Phantom Detective last edited by cbishop on 09/02/18 06:44AM View full history

“Meet the world's greatest sleuth – THE PHANTOM DETECTIVE! Scourge of evil-doers and dreaded nemesis of crime...a man of a thousand faces! In real life he is Richard Curtis van Loan, wealthy young bachelor...to his friends a young idler – but Frank Havens, publisher of the New York Clarion, knows the real role played by the amazing master of criminology – THE PHANTOM DETECTIVE – or his substitute personality, the old chemist known as Dr. Bendix!"

THE PHANTOM DETECTIVE was an extremely popular pulp detective hero (170 issues!) who made the jump to comics. Many readers can't help but notice similarities to a later character inspired by bats – the signal which alerts him to trouble, his playboy facade, his strength and his passion with criminology. Coincidence? You decide! This book collects all his comic books stories ---- as only Gwandanaland Comics can do it!

This is a trade paperback collecting Phantom Detective stories from Thrilling Comics and America's Best Comics.
