The story:
Concerned about the Phantom's long absence, Diana and the kids consult the Skull Cave chronicles for clues about his latest mission.

When the Phantom finally turns up injured and requiring surgery, the chronicles again provide a recourse for comparing the incumbent Phantom's life with a brave ancestor's dramatic near-death experience...

Watch out for:

  • The Phantom unmasked
  • Weeks of torture on a pirate ship
  • An early grave at sea
