Review of Greek 'Blek' Magazines (Μπλεκ) by Mikros Iros

The Greek publisher Mikros Iros has been publishing their 'Blek' Magazines (Μπλεκ) since December 2018. 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.

We have purchased a couple of comics and reviewed them in the following video.

The Phantom has not appeared in all issues - he has appeared 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).

At the time of this recording the following Phantom stories have been printed in this Greek comic magazine.
