Covers

Whoaa... hold it! I appreciate the work but the cover list should only include each cover illustration once (like the Paul Ryan article), and link to the article for that cover to show all subsequent reprints. See Fantomen 8/1986 cover to see what I mean - otherwise the list will be super long because of all reprints of every Gohs cover. A good start to make a list of Gohs' covers can be found here.

120% agreeing! This is kinda the reason for creating cover articles... Pjär 16:33, 27 March 2008 (CET)
I agree with you. I only hope that every cover that he ever did was printed in Swedish, otherwise it would become a little bit hard to find everything. Karl MAN 2 16:50, 27 March 2008 (CET)
That would be safe to assume. At least every Gohs cover that is referred to in the PhWiki is of Swedish origin, and I've never come across a Gohs cover not made for original Swedish publication. Pjär 19:48, 27 March 2008 (CET)

I've added every Phantom cover made by Gohs for Christmas albums and one-shots. Now are there only about 800 Fantomen covers missing... *phew* Pjär 02:16, 1 April 2008 (CEST)

I discovered that these issues have covers made by Rolf Gohs:

Should these be included? I do not know the motive, but it might be that none of them are Phantom related. (quite likely) Karl MAN 2 05:21, 2 April 2008 (CEST)

No, the Phantom is not on any of these covers. Despite his massive production of Phantom covers, Gohs has found the time to produce hundreds of non-Phantom covers aswell. Member 7 07:43, 2 April 2008 (CEST)

1950's covers

Nice to see the cover index expanding :)

About the earlies Gohs covers... Acording to my list (which I unfortunately don't remember from where I got...) the covers of Fantomen 18/1957, 18/1958, 34/1958, 36/1958, 4/1959, 14/1959, and 17-12/1959 also had Gohs as an artist. In addition the cover of #29/1958 isn't created by Gohs, according to the list I got. Otherwise it matches with the list in the article.

With that said, I'm not a 100% certain that my list is correct, but I might as well ask :) Pjär 18:52, 2 April 2008 (CEST)

Your list appears to be correct, and on second thought: Aren't many of these early cover non-Phantom covers? I.e. the cover motif is some sport star or a back-up strip? Should these covers be listed at all, or only listed but not given a separate article? Member 7 21:47, 2 April 2008 (CEST)
Good question... As a matter of fact, I can't find any collection of the early Fantomen covers, so I can't check. However - since the majority of the 1950's covers didn't feature The Phantom, it seems likely. The practice to only have The Phantom of the cover began with #21/1959, right?
I'd vote for including the possible non-Phantom Fantomen covers in the list, but not to link them to any article.
Like:
Fantomen XX/1958 cover (non-Phantom)
Sounds good. Since we cannot be sure at the moment which covers that features the Phantom (or possibly Phantom-related stuff), it could be good to have a complete list so when someone actually check, a link could be created if it turns out that the cover actually featured the Phantom (or Phantom-related stuff).

Back when I did the Swedish index on Deepwoods[1] I made notes on which covers where "non-Phantom". I don't have access to the cover images right now but assuming I did my work properly the first time, I have edited the list now and removed links to covers that do not feature the Phantom. I didn't add any text behind like in the example above since I didn't think about it, but it should be easy enough to do now :) Andreas 09:57, 4 April 2008 (CEST)

Covers with no given artist

I have encountered the problem with covers of whom no artist is given. Currently I do not know the artist, but I suspect by the style who it is, of the covers of Fantomen 13/1989, Fantomen 22/1981, Fantomen 21/1981 (where I suspect that Rolf Gohs is the cover artist), Fantomen 16/1981, and Fantomen 7/1981 (where I suspect that Knut Westad is the cover artist). I suspect that the cover artist of Fantomen 13/1989 was uncredited by mistake, but the others are all the issues that I have from 1981 and I therefore suspect that it was custom in those days not to credit the cover artist. Do anyone know such things? Karl MAN 2 00:02, 4 April 2008 (CEST)

I don't know exactly when the cover credits were added, but you are probably right that it was after 1981. Most "unknown" artists have been listed afterwards in Fantomen Talar, Splasch Magazine etc. And as you say, in most cases it is quite easy to just look on the style of the art. For the 1980s covers, you can find the correct (hopefully) cover artists here [2] Andreas 10:02, 4 April 2008 (CEST)

Separate cover gallery articles

How we should deal with cover artist's covers in their articles have been dealed with before in Talk:Paul Ryan, however, Rolf Gohs is a special case. I therefore suggest that the list that is in this article may be kept and that we then add gallery articles of 200 Phantom covers per article. I think the list is neccesary to keep because it gives a somewhat perspective to the total production. The gallery articles could then be of the type of Hans Lindahl Fantomen covers with 200 Phantom motif covers at each, being named something like Rolf Gohs Fantomen covers 1-200, Rolf Gohs Fantomen covers 201-400, and so on, the last one, Rolf Gohs Fantomen covers 801-1000 being incomlpete or having a slightly different name. (it will take a while until Rolf Gohs has drawn 1000 covers with Phantom motif) Karl MAN--130.236.60.33 16:22, 16 October 2008 (CEST)

Sounds good to me. Andreas 19:49, 16 October 2008 (CEST)

I will then begin with making the articles. Karl MAN--130.236.60.37 22:03, 18 October 2008 (CEST)
