Behind the scenes

  • Julie makes her first appearance in the Gold Key/King/Charlton series of Phantom comics. In The Phantom #20, responding to a letter from a reader, the editor claims that a new series of Phantom comics magazines, focusing on Julie, was planned for a 1967 premiere. These plans were obviously dumped, since no such series was released. Julie did however appear in more King produced comics, together with her pet leopard Fury and horse Flash, making them the first recurring characters created for the US Phantom magazine. Flash isn't mentioned by name until "The Riddle of the Witch" though.
  • This story, and all following King stories featuring Julie, omits to specify which Phantom is Julie's brother, referred to as Kit.
  • No writer is credited for this story. Dick Wood has been identified as the writer, in part because of the use of the phrase "Great Ghosts!" which he coined. [1]
  • Pat Fortunato is sometimes credited as the writer, but she has gone on record here saying that "The Riddle of the Witch" was her first Phantom story.
