Behind the scenes

  • In the Swedish reprint in Fantomen 5/2021, editor Mikael Sol made changes to Farfar's appearance in the artwork, and changed two background characters to look like himself and future Fantomen editor Andreas Eriksson. Sol added an eye patch to the drawings of Farfar, which matches many other drawings of Granberg in the Fantomen magazine and other comics.
