Behind the scenes

  • This is the first full-length US Phantom story neither credited to Lee Falk nor using a rewritten version of a Falk script. It is also the first full-length Phantom story to be written directly for the Gold Key Phantom magazine. Bill Lignante is sometimes credited as writer, however a note on discusses the possible writers: "According to a letter from Bill Harris in Robin Snyder's The Comics Vol 23, No 8, August 2012, he wrote all the Phantom stories, although The Comic Reader #40 notes that Dick Wood wrote this story, which was not an adaptation (Harris is credited as the author of all the Phantom adaptations)."
