Fantom was the title of the Czech Phantom comic book that was published by Semic-Slovart from 1992 to 1993. Technically, the first six issues were published in Czechoslovakia and the last two issues in the Czech Republic.

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.

The Fantom series was published bimonthly in full 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). Starting in the third issue was "The Phantom Legends", a series of one-page retellings of important parts of the Phantom legend. This had also appeared in Fantomen previously. A total of eight issues were published.

The Czech Fantom had the exact same covers and contents as corresponding issues of the Polish Fantom and the Slovak Fantóm.
