Synopsis

Generations of Phantoms have been bewildered by rattles that mysteriously appear on the Skull Throne once a year. Investigating the theft of the Llongo crown, the Phantom encounters tiny people who long ago made a treaty with his distant ancestor -- they will stop stealing in exchange for his protection, so long as their existence is concealed. The rattles are tokens of the treaty. Phantom kills a menacing crocodile, which convinces even the malcontent to continue abiding by the treaty.
