X-Band: The Phantom Podcast #195 - July 2021 Comics & News

Jermayn Parker and Dan Fraser with input by regulars Mikael Lyck, Stephen East and Ankit Mitra review all the latest Phantom news and comics from around the world across five continents.

We review comics from Frew Publications, Regal Publications and Fantomen plus spend time discussing a big month of Phantom news of new publishers and comics to come in the near future, new items to buy plus some new dates for Supanova events in Australia for the back end of 2021. Frew also drop a huge hint for a potential Christmas present.

We also touch upon the sad passing of Claes Reimerthi which we go into more detail and reflection in our X-Band: The Phantom Podcast Episode #194.
