Review of Fantomen 2020 Christmas & Softcover Album

Every year since 1944 in Sweden there has been a Fantomen Christmas album which makes it the longest ongoing publication of the Phantom throughout the whole world.


Today I review the 2020 Fantomen Christmas album and the latest Softcover Album which is the sixth in the series. The concept originally came from Norway in 2014. Each year there is a theme - past themes have been The Wedding Anniversary, Pirates and Noir. In the past the Softcover Album was released at the Gootenburg Fair.
