When was The Phantom published in Australia?
The first Australian appearance of The Ghost Who Walks was not in a comic book, but a women’s magazine! Published by The Woman’s Mirror as ‘an exciting picture serial’ in September 1936, it definitely lived up to the hype. Storylines were sometimes changed for better local appeal, such as the editing of Diana Palmer’s location to Sydney Harbour in the first instalment. Comic strips were a must-have for women’s magazine at the time, to ensure the whole family was reading along.
