Crossover of the Week

Spring 1942
            The Phantom Detetive attempts to end a gang war in New York. The Phantom’s ally, Inspector Thomas Gregg, is doing his own part to end the conflict, aided by, among others, Timothy Scallot, Cardona, and Captain McGrath. The instigator of the war tells a group of fellow gangsters that they should worry more about the Black Bat or the Masked Avenger than the Phantom.
