Indexer Notes

Character is called Fantom of the Fair on the cover but is renamed Fantoman in the interior story.

In 1940, the Fantom strip was written by George Kapitan as well as Paul Gustavson and Frank Thomas. No extant evidence exists that is known as to who wrote this particular story.

Same applies to the artist of the story. Besides Gustavson, other known artists include Will Roland.
