Greece Comic Series Featuring The Phantom Out Now

We cannot call this a new series seeing issue #1 first came out in December 2018 and five years later we are made aware of it.

Greece has a unique history with the Phantom. In the last 40 years there has only been two comics published but in the 1960's and 1970's there was around 130 comics published by publishers like Terzopoulos, Savvelen and Kabanas-Hellas. Interestingly Savvelen even created their own prose adventures created by Hofmey Brantler.

This series titled Μπλεκ is a bi monthly series by Mikrosiros featuring "Tarzan", "Il Grande Blek", "Judge Dreed", "Luck Star O'Hara" and many other European classic and new comic characters. The series is named after the comic series "Il Grande Blek".

For a comparison, the series is very similar as the USA Comics Revue and Hungarian Kockás series featuring several characters in a comic. You can buy these comics from the publishers website.

The latest issue at the time of this article is #28. The Phantom has not appeared in all issues - the first in Issue #1 to issue #5 and then again starting from #20 to current. Each comic has between 100 and 166 pages and is in colour.

Each issue retails for 6.50€ ($11Au, $6US, 600 INR & 75 sek/nok).
