We manage to get the podcast under two hours as we review 6 weeks of comics from Frew Publications and Fantomen by regulars Jermayn Parker, Dan Fraser and Stephen East with input by Mikael Lyck and Ankit Mitra.

plus all the latest Phantom news from around the world across five continents with new comics from around the world, items to buy for Christmas, a new kickstarter campaign to follow plus much more.

Stephen East goes on a long run up to digest the three part saga of the "The Secret Theatre" saga. Did you enjoy the saga?
