Mikael Lyck from Chronicle Chamber reviews Fantomen 20/2023 featuring the following stories:
"Monstret i Montargis" ("The Wolfman of Montargis") by Norman Worker and Hans Lindahl
The cover features a reused image made by Mikael Gustavsson, this was first used as the publishing schedule poster from 1991. The reason for the reused cover and reprint story is that the planned story is delayed and the cover matches it, it is however over one year since Fantomen had no new Phantom content and this was not by choice, well done by Andreas Eriksson and Jacob Habinc in my opinion.
The Phantom story is a reprint of the first Hans Lindahl story made to be colored, with a script by Norman Worker. The story can be read in Frew #1613.
The side comic of the issue is the conclusion of the Thorgal story started in the last issue.
Preview of next issue shows us that we will read two Phantom stories including a new newspaper and a Team Fantomen reprint:
"Döden i Himalaya" ("Death in the Himalayas") by Tony DePaul and Mike Manley
"Tirangis gravplats" ("Tirangi's Burial Ground") by Johan L. Borgnes and Kari Leppänen
Until next time, Happy Phantoming!
