X-Band: Phantom Podcast #244A - January & February 2023 Frew Comics

The team Dan Fraser, Jermayn Parker and Stephen East are all together as they attempt to go through almost two and a half months of comic reviews and news. As you can all probably assume, they failed so much, this podcast has been split into two.

The first podcast will be the Frew comics which consist of four comics and 14 stories. The second part of the podcast will be out soon. The second part of the podcast will consist all the news, ongoing discussions on the Daily and Sunday stories as well as reviews from Fantomen, Regal, Shatki and Lion-Muthu by Mikael Lyck, Ankit Mitra and Seuj Abir.

Until then, here are our reviews of the Frew comics so far for 2023.

If your one of the phans who can only listen to some parts of the podcast, below is a timeline of what we discussed.
