The story:
Returning home after the dramatic events in the golden village (see S012 The Golden Princess), the Phantom and Diana are surprised to see new visitors in the Deep Woods. The Marshall Sisters, with whom the Phantom recently shared a number of adventures (see S008 - S010), have introduced themselves as the wives of the jungle ruler and have been accepted as such by the Bandar.

Needless to say this creates immediate friction, and after some explosive situations it seems clear to Diana that she must leave the Deep Woods forever. However, this is just the beginning of the Phantom's problems, as Diana and the sisters soon become unwilling victims of a highland prince's 'fishing' expedition...

Watch out for:

  • The introduction of Hero in the Sunday run
  • Three female rivals' fighting in the Skull Cave
  • The fantastic fishbowl of Simitar
