Walker's Table

Walker's Table, A mountain with flat top like a table also called "Mesa" which is Spanish and Portuguese for "table”.
                                    Devil's Tower                                                         Walker's Table

In Steven Spielberg’s science fiction film “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”, I saw mountain like Walker’s table.Originally the mountain called "Devil's Tower" and it was the first declared United States National Monument.
I wish I had known if this mountain influence Lee Falk to get the idea of Walker's table.

Father of 1st Phantom who was the cabin boy of Christopher Columbus founded this mountain with his friend Caribo and they climbed it.
Caribo said, “we’ll name it for you, Kit--Walker's Table."

Kit told his son(1st phantom) about this mountain but 1st Phantom never found it.
His son 2nd Phantom somehow manage to found it.

This is not that story of how they found Walker's Table. 
It is about our 21st Phantom.
Diana and phantom came to walker's table and surprisingly they found the rope and basket which used as elevator, was broken. Diana asked is it broken by storm but phantom replied the basket was not broken it is chopped. He also adds, "Somebody was up there. Or is!"


Walker’s Table was shown first time in this Issue of Indrajal Comics "100 Walkerer Table"(Eng.122Walker’s Table).
I don’t recollect any stories of Indrajal Comics about Walker's Table other than Seymour Barry’s drawing. Are there any?  I am not sure!!
I will be glad to know.

Why I read Indrajal Comics?

Why I read Indrajal Comics? Is it just for fun or get something more out of it?
