X-Band: Phantom Podcast #230 - September 2022 Comics & News

Dan Fraser and Jermayn Parker join together talking all the latest Phantom comics and news from around the world. It has been a BIG month in the Phantom world which has seen this podcast blowout to nearly 2.5 hours. Phan and creator Duncan Munro takes the place of Stephen who is on holidays and does a great job filling his shoes. We are also joined with Mikael Lyck and Ohm Roy who review the Fantomen comics and the amazing Jean-Yves Mitton book by Black and White Editions.

Some have asked about us being behind reviews on the Regal and Fantomen comics and we are aware and they will be uploaded soon. Thank you for your patience.
