Hi, I am a big fan of these 3 comic character.    DO we have any comics like this on this site.

Also I saw a note under Harvey here on this site to not to upload Phantom the ghost who walks and Mandrake the Magician . I was wondering why?

thanks

Simply put, the characters are not in the public domain

The companies have been fairly meticulous in their copyrights and the trademarks are too high-profile if anybody finds something that falls through the cracks.  Sorry...

That said, there are plenty of Mandrake and Buck Rogers knock-offs here. I'm having a harder time thinking of many blatant Phantom knock-offs though, but there are plenty of jungle books.

I seem to remember a red suited Jungle man that may be the closest to a Phantom rip off.

That red-suited guy may actually have been the real Phantom. He's colored red in many European countries. In fact, if you're looking for Phantom rip-offs, Europe is the place to go. Especially Italy. It's amazing how popular the character was over there. During the 50s there were tons of costumed characters, in and out of the jungle, who resembled the Phantom.

I have seen the Red Phantom but there is another in the back of my mind. I looked up Red Panther thinking that was it. May have been what I was thinking of but not really Phantom like.
