A 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, for the first time ask you to donate to the cost of running it.
Due to the massive amount of pictures in here, the web storage costs us over 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.

Behind the scenes

  • Unlike the other Team Fantomen remakes that were produced for the newspaper around the same time (the daily stories "The Ghost Wall" and "The Halloween Kidnappers"), the original version of this story was produced many years earlier. For this reason the artwork of the Sunday version could be inspired by the comic book version and they are similar in many ways.
  • At his official website, Leppänen denounces the artwork as plagiarism. [1] [2]
