Mikael Lyck from Chronicle Chamber reviews the latest Fantomen issue - 2022/24 which features the following stories:
"Legenden om Vråkarna, kapitel 3: Den ondskefulle baronen" ("Saga of the Vultures Chapter Three: The Sinister Baron") by Pidde Andersson and Anthony Spay
"Det försvunna planet" ("Jungle Mystery") by Tony DePaul, George Olesen, and Keith Williams
Quite a striking cover by Luca Erbetta.
The editorial page writes about the Swedish and Norwegian Christmas albums and then about the Boss Fight Studio action figures. Our reviews are on our website and YouTube channel (Norwegian Christmas Review, Boss Fight Studio Figurines wave 1.0, wave 1.5 and with Hero).
The main story is the concluding part of Pidde Andersson and Anthony Spay's Vulture's Origin trilogy, first published in Frew #1888. Another great chapter that looks awesome in color.
This part has less backstory and is more of a classic Phantom story, and ties up the bag on this great ark.
The second Phantom story in this comic is the Daily story Jungle Mystery by Tony DePaul, George Olesen and Keith Williams. A story about two pilots having to do an emergency landing in the jungle close to the border to Rhodia. Multiple parties try to get hold of them first with different agendas.
Previews for the last issue of the year which will be a 100 page issue with a new Team Fantomen story The Ghost Canoe, by David Bishop and Kari Leppänen (can learn more about this story here), Two Team Fantomen reprints The Lord of the Jungle by Kjell T. Johnsen, Claes Reimerthi and Heiner Bade plus Diana Married by Janne Lundström and Özcan Eralp. Rounding this issue is a new Karl Kämpe story!
This comic comes out 1st of December
Until next time, Happy Phantoming!
