People familiar with the largest epic poem in the world - The Mahabharatha - will surely recall the great warrior Karna who was born with the Kavacha (armor) and Kundala (ear ring). Shehabji's 22nd Phantom seems to have been born with the purple costume, mask, boots and the striped underwear and gunbelts.

You are right!

I never (formally) noticed the baby's "costume"!!!

Good catch.

Venkit: As know Mahabharta's Karna story since childhood, always accepted baby phantom costume as normal phenomenon. :)

Late Shehab ji had given the Indian colours to the cover.

Really very interesting.

It is such a sweet cover. It is sure to bring a smile on the face of anyone who looks give it a glance. I rete Shehab ji as one of the great cover artists. (not undermining his other work of course).

Thanks Venkit for this fabulous tale of 22nd phantom. Great scans. A pleasure to look at. I have bought a new 22 inch monitor for my PC and your new scans (together with Ajay's) just look fantastic on it. Thanks to you guys.

Another masterful job from Prabhat.
