The Phantom has been featured in several publications in Sweden.


The Phantom ("Fantomen" in Swedish) was introduced in Sweden in 1940, when the weekly magazine Vecko-Revyn started to include dailies and Sunday stories. Beginning in 1944, material from Vecko-Revyn was collected in annual "Christmas Albums", the first Swedish publications to focus on The Phantom. The Christmas Albums continues to be published, with its 72nd issue released for Christmas 2015, but the connection to Vecko-Revyn is long gone.

In 1950, the first issue of the fortnightly comic book Fantomen was published, and by the end of 2015, the 1583th issue was released. Since 1963 Phantom stories have been produced directly for Fantomen, and, as of 2015, over 900 stories have been created by the so-called "Team Fantomen".

Being one of Sweden's most profilic comic books, "Fantomen" has spawned several one-shots and periodicals (Fantomen Krönika enjoying the longest run, 1993-2010) and Phantom comics have also appeared in other comic books and in anthologies. Since 2002, the earliest Fantomen issues are reprinted in chronological hard cover volumes, Fantomen - Den inbundna årgången, which, as of 2015, has reached the year of 1965.

Comics syndicate Bulls Press is the longtime rightsholder of The Phantom in Sweden, while the main publisher of the comic books has been Semic Press until 1997, and Egmont Publishing thereafter.
