The Phantom Detective #83 Audiobook
The Phantom Comes Through
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!
 
Blackmail is the sinister weapon of an arch-fiend who challenges the might of the Phantom Detective! Millions are at stake in a heinous game of death played with human pawns — and it’s up to Richard Curtis Van Loan to solve the grim mystery behind a grisly series of crimes!
 
Ned Pines was the man behind a publishing company that went under many names during its existence. This was due to Pines trying to maximize his market. Known at different times as Better, Standard, and Thrilling Publications, it’s the company’s tenure as Thrilling that saw the birth of one of Pulp’s greatest heroes - The Phantom Detective!
 
Taking a cue from the success of Street & Smith’s The Shadow magazine, the first such magazine to feature a hero as its title and lead feature, Pines imagined that following suit might prove lucrative for his own endeavor. Putting this intent into action, Thrilling Publications released the first issue of The Phantom Detective magazine in February 1933, just a scant thirty or so days before Street & Smith delivered another soon to be legend - Doc Savage - in his own magazine. Keeping up with both his predecessor and the hero that followed him by a month, The Phantom Detective ran in his own magazine for 170 issues, just behind the other two characters’ achievements. Pines’ masked sleuth also set a record the other two did not, his magazine being published for a total of twenty years!
 
Pines didn’t simply keep the Phantom Detective in the pulps, however. He endeavored to turn the character into a comic book hero as well, although this did not prove as successful as its original mostly prose medium.
 
The Phantom Comes Through was originally published in the January 1940 issue of The Phantom Detective Magazine and is read with pulse pounding intensity by award winning voice actor Milton Bagby.
