The Ghost Who (Cat)Walks
This is obviously a riff on Sheldon Moldoff's cover for Detective Comics 241, featuring "The Rainbow Batman." It's kind of appropriate for the Phantom, since his costume is colored differently across several countries. The most famous one is the iconic purple, but in other countries it's either red or blue, mostly in Europe. I think I've read somewhere that creator Lee Falk intended it to be gray, like how it looks in the daily newspaper strips.
