X-Band: Phantom Podcast #209 - Our Best of 2021 (& Frew Best Of Results)

In a bumper 2 hour podcast Jermayn Parker, Dan Fraser and Stephen East go over their favourites for 2021 from around the world. Mikael Lyck and Ankit Mitra also give us their favourites.

We cover every country, every publisher and every comic. 10 countries, 100+ comics and 20+ new stories is a lot and even through a pandemic, 2021 has been a good Phantom year.
