It was about a month ago we reported that Australian company Mallon Publishing was seeking interest in a 2019 Phantom wall calendar.
We are happy to announce that Phantom phans have come through, the interest is there, and Mallon WILL be producing a calendar for 2019! Indeed they have started sending out order forms to registered fans and have even released the beautiful cover image seen on this page.
The Rolf Gohs cover image was first published in 1965 by Fantomen in Sweden, and last seen way back in May 1969, as the cover for the German language publication Phantom 26, with both issues produced by Semic.
All details regarding the calendar are on the order form, but a quick summary is as follows:
standard size 300mm square
24 full colour pages
Phantom art and international covers
Direct orders will receive a bonus complimentary gift (collectible Phantom cover print)
Direct orders to be delivered in October 2018
Direct orders will incur a postage cost, but this may be considered a small sacrifice to receive the bonus gift, as well as being guaranteed a copy.
With a limited print run this year, it seems almost certain that not every newsagent will receive in-store copies. The only way to be sure that you are able to proudly display a copy in your home, office or Skull Cave next year is to order direct.
Trade orders are welcome. Retailers or local comic stores can inquire about trade quantities and prices by emailing here.
