Comic #40:Phantom Daily:The Prisoner of the Himalayas(D005) - A fascinating tale....

...from 1938 - published more than 70 years ago!!! :o)

Just read it couple of days back or so(on the 1st day of this new year,in fact! :-)) and WOW!!It's a completely fascinating tale of GWW ,one of those associated in INDIA,a mind-blowing thriller with fabulous scripting from great Falk!!This is that kinda strips which will tell you how great was Mr.Lee Falk !! :-)
I can't stop myself from giving some examples of conversations from this Daily,which in fact,mind blowing in my opinion!! I really missed these kinda tight/dramatic/taut dialogues from late '80s strips(except few),sadly!!

Conversation #1 :Between crook Bart and The Phantom ....









Conversation #2 :Between crook Bart and Prince Gar of Himalaya....
