X-Band: Phantom Podcast #254 - May 2023 Frew, Fantomen, Mustanaamio, Shakti & Regal Comics Review



The extended team Seuj Abir and Mikael Lyck join Jermayn Parker, Dan Fraser and Stephen East as they go through the comics from May (and June). We review 14 Phantom comics in total - 5x from Frew Australia and 3x from Fantomen Sweden, 1x from Mustanaamio and 2x each from Regal and Shatki which are published in India. It is a huge 33 Phantom stories in total.
