X-Band: Phantom Podcast #203 - Lou Manna

Dan Fraser and Jermayn Parker are joined by Moonstone and Frew cover and story artist Lou Manna. It was a great phun podcast as we chatted about his 15+ year career with The Phantom which started off with stories and covers for Moonstone and then a decade later a two part story for Frew that was originally created for Moonstone.

For fans you will be greatly excited about a couple of other stories awaiting to be published including one by two phans Peter Steven and Jaime Diaz. Some of the other various topics we discussed are:

  • His career

  • How Tom Tyler and George Wilson helped made Lou as a phan

  • His love for the phans from around the world

  • We go through Lou's four stories and hear some stories about printing and colouring issues plus more musings.

  • The Tom Tyler famous pose making its way into a Phantom comic.

  • His interactions with DC and Marvel greats like Bob Kane, Rich Buckler, Dick Giordano, Jack Adler, Joel Orlando and many others.

  • His Chronicle Chamber Bushfire Phundraiser piece. (link to learn more about the phundraiser)

  • His love for Don Newton's Phantom artwork for Charlton.

We would love to hear from you on what you think of what we discussed in the podcast and we hope you have a great time listening to the podcast. If you would like to buy art from Lou Manna you can either contact him by his website, Facebook or eBay account.
