Dan and Jermayn go back to school in Episode 83, when we talk to one of the world's foremost academic experts on The Phantom, Kevin Patrick, author of the recently released The Phantom Unmasked: America's First Superhero.
In a wide-ranging discussion, the phellas discuss the cultural phenomenon that is The Phantom, the spread of the character and comic strip around the world, and discuss reasons for his popularity (or otherwise) in Australia, India, Sweden and the USA.
Kevin also provides some fascinating insights into the history of King Features Syndicate and the business that is The Phantom.
What we talk about in the podcast barely scratches the surface of what is covered in the book, so we really encourage everyone to get to your local bookstore to pick up a copy, or order online via the link here.
