The Phantom Detective #30 Audiobook
The Pharaoh's Mark
by Robert Wallace
Read by Milton Bagby
Forged in war, The Phantom Detective wages a one-man battle on crime! Solving impossible mysteries and delivering his own justice, he is the underworld’s masked nightmare!
Grisly murder and baffling mystery stalk a museum! Is it the curse of ancient Egypt? Follow the Phantom on one of the most exciting cases in his career as even the world’s greatest sleuth questions whether he faces man or magic!
Although similar to other masked men featured in pulp magazines, The Phantom Detective can actually be credited with at least two influences on later characters, both those to follow in pulps and one in particular to come to life in comic books.
Because he wore a mask and was so skilled at the art of disguise, Richard Curtis Van Loan had to come up with a way to identify himself to law enforcement officials as the actual Phantom Detective. To this end, he fashioned a platinum badge in the shape of a domino mask, like the one he wore to conceal his identity. This concept of leaving a calling card would be found in innumerable heroes to follow in unique ways, including The Spider.
Another even more influential invention on the future of a certain caped crusader came in the form of a red beacon that Frank Havens, the only person to know the Phantom Detective’s true identity, had installed on the roof of his newspaper building. This was used whenever the Clarion’s owner needed to summon The Phantom from somewhere else in the city. Obviously, this is very similar to the signal used to summon Batman in comics in later years, but the connection between the two is not mere supposition. Jack Schiff and Mort Weisinger both edited The Phantom Detective under the leadership of Leo Margulies before moving on to editing in a different format and a different character, Batman in comics books.
‘The Pharaoh’s Mark’ was originally published in the August 1935 issue of The Phantom Detective Magazine and is read with pulse pounding intensity by award winning voice actor Milton Bagby.
