X-Band: Phantom Podcast #204 - Crossovers


Crossovers are all the rage within the comics universe with success with movies, so why not the Phantom? Stephen East, Dan Fraser and Jermayn Parker chat about The Phantom and the crossovers he has existed in and then we discuss why they are important and what we would like to see from comic publishers but also the owners King Features Syndicate.


We also discuss if KFS have indeed put a ban on Frew crossovers and we raise why its important for the comic but also for the greater good of the Australian comic industry.
