2024 Fantomen Hardcover Collection Announced - Kate Sommerset Series by David Bishop & Cesar Spadari

During the Uppsala Comix Convention Fantomen editor Andreas Eriksson announced the 2024 Fantomen Hardcover Collection to be released in August 2024. The book will be about Lady Kate Sommerset who featured in Phantom stories with the 16th, 17th, 18th Phantom's and Julie, the twin sister of the 17th Phantom.

At this stage there is no cover with the announcement but you can pre order the book at the Adli Biris website here. The price is 663kr ($100AU, $60US, €60 & 5,000INR).

Thanks to Jacob Habinc, who has confirmed that the cover will feature another slip case like the “Heart of Darkness” and “The Secret Chronicle” collections and will be illustrated by phan phavourite Henrik Sahlström.

If you would like to see what these hardcover collection books are like, we have reviewed the 2022 'Mörkrets hjärta' book and the 2023 'Den hemliga krönikan' book. Each book are limited to 1,000 copies only and have been 430+ pages.

They are must collectible pieces, even if you do not read Swedish.

There have been 12 completed stories featuring Lady Kate Sommerset but another 8 stories featuring her son, the half brother of the 18th Phantom. No word at this stage if this hardcover collection book will feature the stories of the son - Christopher Sommerset.

These stories have been written by the dynamic duo David Bishop and Cesar Spadari. David struck gold with his stories about the powerful, alluring anti villain Kate Sommerset, with three of the stories being voted by both Norway and Fantomen readers as their favourites in 2003, 2004 and 2014.
