The Phantom in Australia

Posted: October 16, 2018 in Comics, Cool stuff, General

Looks like The Phantom is still going strong in Australia. Here is a book that celebrates 70 years from Frew Publications, featuring stuff from 1941 and onwards. Six adventures in all.



Seven decades of Donald Duck

Posted: October 12, 2018 in Comics, General

Donald Duck has now been published in his very own comic book (Kalle Anka & Co) in Sweden for 70 years, and you can see them highlighting this fact on this cover (issue 38 2018). This title has always been a good seller over here. Probably still is.

Classic Tex Willer, out today in good old Norway. Maxi Tex (issue) 61 sports 276 pages. Excellent cover art by Aurelio Galleppini.

Davy Og Miki 17

Posted: October 6, 2018 in Comics

More great nostalgia from Norway. Davy Og Miki (issue) 17 goes out on Monday over there. 218 pages.

To celebrate the 70th Anniversary of Tex Willer, Swedish publisher Ades Media is set to release an album called “Hämnaren” (“The Avenger”) any day now. This is pretty big news since we have not had Tex Willer in this country since 1982 (often bemoaned on this blog). I guess they may be testing the waters with this one, we will have to wait and see.

Good news though.

Z2 Comics has just added an exclusive trailer for the upcoming Babymetal comic book “Apocrypha – The Legend of Babymetal” on their YouTube page. And on top of this, it features a first glimpse of a brand new track (you can just tell that a brutal riff is going to crash in after this little snippet, fans are going wild as we speak). This is pretty awesome.

Watch the trailer here.
