Behind the scenes

  • Diana's mother is called Evie by her brother Dave.
  • The story shows Prince Karna of the Ismani tribe having come to USA to perform the annual pledge of their loyalty to the Phantom, to obey the Phantom law and Phantom peace. The ceremony is said to be centuries old. However, in the Sunday story The Ismani Cannibals (running at the same time in 1943) there is no mention of this pledge and the Ismanis are still cannibals , totally unaware of any such loyalty or pledge when they kidnap the Marshall sisters.
