SCCal23.png 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.

But, we don't like to just ask for your money, we would like to offer a printable custom Fantomen wall calender, with all that you would expect from an calender, including the dates your Fantomen magazine will land in your postbox or the nearest store.

Kindly download it from here, from there you can also donate to this wiki Calendar

Plot Summary

Behind the scenes

  • Lee Falk was hospitalised while writing the script for this story, and was assisted by his wife Elizabeth Falk. When he passed away, she finished the script based on his plot.
  • Almost an entire week of strips (from April 27 to May 1) consisted only of one-panel strips, to give more time to finish the script after Lee Falk passed away. This was the first time ever that the Phantom daily strip used only one panel for an entire strip.
  • The daily strip changed to computer lettering with this story.
  • The code to disarm the bomb is 1870 which is supposed to be the year the opera Aida premiered. However, it was actually first performed late in 1871.
