Fantom was the title of the Hungarian Phantom comic book that was published by Semic Interprint from 1988 to 1992.

The Swedish publisher Semic established several new publishing companies in various European countries in the late 1980s and early 1990s, in cooperation with local publishers. "The Phantom" was one of the comics that Semic introduced to new markets. Fantom was the first, and by far most succesful, of these Phantom comics. A total of 24 issues and one album were published.

The Fantom series was published bimonthly, and the first 13 issues had sequential numbering (#1–13). In 1991, the numbering changed and restarted every year. In 1992, the book changed from black/white to color. Covers were taken from the Swedish Fantomen comic book, and the contents were a mix of Team Fantomen stories and daily/Sunday stories by Lee Falk (in edited versions, as they had previously appeard in Fantomen). The first 13 issues also included "The Phantom Legends", a series of one-page retellings of important parts of the Phantom legend. This had also appeared in Fantomen previously.
