History

O Globo, founded in 1925, is the major daily newspaper in Rio de Janeiro, and is part of the Organizações Globo media conglomerate, that includes newspapers (Infoglobo), magazines (Editora Globo), tv stations (Rede Globo de Televisão), cable tv stations (Globosat), radio stations (Sistema Globo de Rádio) and a charitable foundation (Fundação Roberto Marinho). O Globo started publishing Golden Age comics with O Globo Juvenil (launched in 1937) and Gibi (1939). Two newspaper print comic book series that were published apart from the newspaper. But starting in January 22, 1940 they began publishing "The Phantom" daily strip on the newspaper in order to promote the two aforementioned comic book series. In 1952 a publishing house, named Rio Gráfica e Editora, was founded. It was the magazine arm of O Globo. A Phantom magazine, titled Fantasma Magazine was launched in 1953. With the acquisition by RGE of Editora Globo in 1986, a book publishing company originally founded in 1883 in Porto Alegre, RGE became in fact Editora Globo. The main reason of the acquisition by RGE was to get hold of the Globo name. Phantom magazines continued being published until 1992.
