Review of Fantomen 2022/12

Mikael Lyck from Chronicle Chamber reviews the latest Fantomen issue - 2022/12 which features the following stories:

  • "The Shore of Chains" by Daniel Carlsson and Anthony Spay

  • "The Connoisseurs" by Claes Reimerthi, George Olesen & Keith Williams

Cover of the year? I heard at least one from Egmont thinks so (One from Team Chronicle Chamber also agrees), it is a clean nice cover from Henrik Sahlström.

Kedjornas Kust ("The Shore of Chains") by Daniel Carlsson and Anthony Spay, this is Daniel's 3rd story! It takes place during the 13th Phantoms time and reuses Ben Oakes from earlier TF stories, he is now the colonel of the Jungle Patrol and wants to rid the country of slavery.

Interestingly the Neglami tribe has an appearance and are quite friendly but maybe some of the events in this story is the starting point of change into the blood thirsty tribe we see in "The Singh Brotherhood" story.

"The Connoisseurs" by Claes Reimerthi, George Olesen & Keith Williams is the second story.

In my opinion one of the better stories made in the aftermath of Lee Falk's death. A rich guy pays to get endangered animals to his private island where his rich friends hunt them. When the Phantom gets caught he is the new prey, but little did they know how resourceful the Phantom can be.

Upcoming in the next issue is Andreas Eriksson and Ivan Rodriguez story "Femme Fatal" that was first published in Frew, also Lee Falk's last newspaper story that was finished by his widow Elizabeth Falk.

Until then, Happy Phantoming!
