Number 1301: In India-Africa with the Phantom
Okay, sounds good enough for me, and the only reason I point it out is in this story the Phantom’s girlfriend Diana is arrested for stealing a necklace from a maharajah, who is strictly Indian. The story itself...well, it’s fairly typical Phantom business, i.e., getting Diana out of trouble. What would that woman, born of privilege,* do without the Phantom? She'd probably be home in America married to a banker, spending afternoons having cocktails with her friends at the country club, that's what. Which would mean the Phantom wouldn't have much to do except hang around the Skull Cave, sitting on his stone throne.
