Turning 80 is a big deal, but it’s an even bigger deal if you’re a fictional character.
Not many franchises last ten or twenty years let alone 80 and many media outlets are celebrating our purple-clad hero doing just that!
King Features Syndicate, the owners of The Phantom, have released their own press release celebrating the hero’s 80th. The article goes over the hero’s history, his creation and his enduring appeal the world over.
Secondly, we have an article from Australian paper The Advertiser, which you can read below.
We’ll keep you updated with any future articles while the world continues to celebrate.
