X-Band: The Phantom Podcast #189 - Matt Kyme, Shane Foley, Diana & Heartbreak

If you love classic Lee Falk, Wilson McCoy and Ray Moore, this is a must listen (or watch) Podcast as we chat with two Australian creators whose work is heavily influenced by their legendary work.

Frew #1892 was released May 6 2021 and features the second Phantom story by Matt Kyme. His first Phantom story was solely created by him. For this second story Shane Foley was brought in by Frew Publications to ink and enhance the original art.

If you are wondering why Shane was brought on to this story you simply have to listen and or watch to this podcast. We chat to both creators and listen to the story on how this story was originally rejected by King Features. We then learn of the lengths Frew, Matt and Shane went through to ensure the story was published and enjoyed by us phans.

The podcast is close to two hours long and you may be wondering what we discussed for two hours? Along with the dissection of the "Diana and the Heartbreakers Gang" story in great detail we chat about Wilson McCoy and Ray Moore classic stories. Again if you love those stories, you need to listen to this podcast.

If your watching, Shane shows his original artwork and we compare many panels that are influenced directly by McCoy and Moore.

As always the video will show slides, art examples and props as we discuss the Phantom. The audio only version is attached if you prefer that method. Make sure you subscribe and leave a review on our podcast and or our YouTube Channel.

We would love to hear from you on what you think of this podcast episode. You can email us at or chat with us via our social media profiles: Facebook, Twitter and or Instagram.
