The Swedish Phantom comic Fantomen have hosted votes about the best story for over 30 years, and now in their 70th year there is no exception. 

Like all elections it is important to vote! 

Even to non-Swedes this vote is important since it gives Team Fantomen and Egmont's editorial staff information about what type of stories you want to read in future issues. These days most Team Fantomen stories show up in Frew in Australia, t...

Comics Kingdom has had products for sale for a while but with their recent change of free shipping it has prompted several Australian and other international phans to buy products from their catalogue to make the most of the free shipping.

Today included in the review are three mugs, the SDCC Pin and the SDCC Shirt. The SDCC Pin is currently not available online at the Comics Kingdom shop (URL) but the rest plus more are all av...

Glenn Ford broke the news of this new series on his recent visit on the podcast in episode #121 (from 2hr48m05) and plenty of phans were excited. What makes the Legacy Series so appealable to phans and collectors is the fact the 1950's Phantom Adventure books are so hard to add to your collection in today's market. At a guess 90% of all Phantom phans will never add one of the three prose comics to their collection - let alone...

In this story, the 21st Phantom visits modern day Stockholm. Throughout the story he visits real life buildings and places. In the attached video Mikael Lyck visits these locations and matches them up with the sce...

There's no doubt that one of the most enjoyable purchases that a phan could make at the Supanova comic convention in Sydney last month was the long-awaited The Phantom Gallery Series 2 trading cards.

Make sure you also check out our video review at the bottom of the page!

It really was a delight for phans from around Australia to come together, open packets of the shiny new cards and share what they'd found. Many...

Frew's first ever Graphic Novel Sword of the Caliph was released at Frew's booth at Sydney Supanova 2019 and discussed on our X-Band: The Phantom Podcast #121 with a chat with Glenn Ford. 

Illustrated by Italy’s Giancarlo Caracuzzo and written by Gabriel Henriquez (also wrote Kid Phantom #1), it introduces us to a new villain, who acts as a major adversary for our hero. The volume is 90 pages long, full colour and slightly over...

There might only be three Frew and two Egmont comic books for us to review since our last Comics and News podcast, but it does not mean it will be a short podcast :)

We received a phone call during the podcast by none other than Shane Foley the creator behind the Frew's version of the team up between their characters in The Phantom, Sir Falcon, Catman and The Shadow. Shane gives us a great in depth look at the series and what w...
