Yet another year with Covid-19 has left the Scandinavian Chapter without our usual sources of income. No meetings and no fairs equals zero income for us.

So if you are a Phan of the Phantom and like the service we provide to you and fellow Phans, through this PhantomWiki we therefore, ask you to donate to the cost of running it.
Due to the massive amount of pictures in here, the web storage costs us 5 000 SEK per year.

All contributions, big or small, would be appreciated. You can donate easily and secure with the donate button in the left menu.

Rick Leonardi is an American comic book illustrator, who has produced covers for Moonstone Books' Phantom comic series.


Leonardi was born in Philadelphia in 1957, and grew up in Haverhill, Massachusetts. He graduated from Dartmouth College in 1979. His professional career began in 1980.

His work is characterized by his use of dynamic figure work (particularly evident in his Spider-Man work), and panel composition that often involves shifting of the camera eye and perspective.

His well-known works include various sporadic fill-in issues of The Uncanny X-Men and The New Mutants, as well as runs on Cloak and Dagger, Spider-Man 2099, Nightwing, Batgirl, and Green Lantern Versus Aliens.

He is credited, along with fellow illustrator Mike Zeck, of designing the black-and-white costume to which Spider-Man switched during the 1984 Secret Wars miniseries, and later wore for a time. According to the Spider-Man 1/2 special, the costume began as a design by Zeck that Leonardi embellished. The plot that developed as a result of Spider-Man's acquisition of the costume led to the creation of the Spider-Man villain known as Venom.
