Review of Zauberstern Phantom #12

Christian Moller reviews the latest issue from Zauberstern #12 which features the following stories which was first published by DC comics back in 1988 plus a Daily newspaper story:

  • "Piraten" ("Pirates") by Mark Verheiden and Luke McDonnell

  • "Hass, Teil 1" ("Hate, Part 1") by Mark Verheiden and Luke McDonnell

  • "Eine Löwin für das Phantom" ("The Phantom Lion") by Tony DePaul and Paul Ryan

This comic is of great value with 100 page of comics in full colour on great quality paper for 10€. This magazine also see's Zauberstern go back to creating their own new covers. Do you prefer them creating their own unique covers?

This cover was created by Stefan Sombetzki who is a German cover artist and this is his very first Phantom cover. It is great to see local talent showcasing their skills with the Phantom and Zaubertserni supporting them.

The magazine is glued and not stapled which is the first time it has happened in their series - everything else is the same high quality. It also features a nice pin-up in the back inside cover.

Zauberstern continue to publish the DC stories from the late 1980's and early 1990's after publishing them from issue 10.

Issue #13 will be out in June 2024.

All Zauberstern and other German comic reviews will be included in our monthly X-Band: The Phantom Podcasts. You can find out more at our website and or subscribe to our YouTube channel for more videos.
