In the year 2010, a total of 21 issues of Swedish comic book Fantomen were published.


Fantomen 60th anniversary symbol.

2010 was the year of Fantomen's 60th anniversary. To celebrate the occasion, a 60th anniversary symbol was placed on each cover.

In total, 21 issues were published of which 15 were regular issues of 68 pages, one was an expanded issue of 100 pages and 5 were "double issues" of 132 pages. The double issues were on sale for four weeks, while the other issues were on sale for two weeks.

The first issue of 2010 was released on December 22, 2009. The corresponding issue of Fantomet was released on December 17, 2009, and was numbered as the last issue of 2009 instead. The corresponding Finnish issue was released, on December 23, 2009, and numbered as the first issue of 2010.

For the second time since the co-producing of Fantomen and Fantomet started, the issues somewhat deviated since Fantomet had an extra double issue. Fantomet 14-15 is represented by the Fantomen issues 15 and 16.


Several in-house ads were published in various comic magazines published by Egmont Kärnan.

An ad showing Fantomen as medicine "against tiredness and depression" was published in March, possibly inspired by a commercial where the painkiller Ipren was likened to the Phantom.

An in-house ad from 2009 was published several times in the magazine Agent X9, but this time in black and white,.

A third ad premiered at the end of the year, and referenced the 60th anniversary of Fantomen with a very favourable subscription offer.


The main cover artists was the team Sal Velluto & Eugenio Mattozzi (5 covers). Other contributors were Rolf Gohs (4 covers), Hans Lindahl (3 covers), Paul Ryan & Tom Smith (2 covers), Germano Ferri (2 covers), César Spadari (1 cover), Heiner Bade (1 cover), Joan Boix (1 cover), Alex Biffignandi (1 cover), and Biffignandi & Ferri (1 cover).
