When talking to Grange in X-Band: The Phantom Podcast Ep #168 we talked about villains and his rogues gallery. Ironically back in 2007 Paul Jonassen a Norwegian phan wrote for Chronicle Chamber and gave his top 10 villains. Now 13 years later we are going to relook at this list and the rest of the CC crew will add theirs. It is only fair to be joined by Paul and give him a chance to revisit his list.It is a great two hour chat and we not only discuss our top 10 villains but discuss who should return, what makes a great villain and do villains have a shelf life? We discuss many other important points including our own selection criteria's. You will enjoy this chat.Between Jermayn's, Stephens, Dan's and Paul's top 10 lists, there are 25 different villains and or organisations.  Below are the top 10 lists and then our combined top 10 list.

Creator Grange Wallis is the artist behind the Frew Publications covers of the current "Ibis Mystery" saga (issues #1873 to #1876). In typical fashion, what started out as a recording for the next X-Band: The Phantom Podcast comics and news episode quickly became a detailed chat with Grange as he talked about his latest four covers. We have decided to release our chat with Grange as a stand alone podcast and our next, will be the latest comics and news in the Phantom world.This podcast is a brilliant insight into how Grange works and thinks as a phan but also a creator. Grange showed us the initial sketches of the four covers including what the covers almost looked like. He gave us a tiny sneak into the missing part five, we really did try and get more out of him, but he would not tell. He also talked about how cover #1873 and #1874 was based on a nod to the original covers by phan phavourite Antonio Lemos. You can follow Grange Wallis at either:His websiteHis Facebook pageHis Instagram pageSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/chroniclechamber)

When www.Deepwoods.org stopped being updated and as technology has improved the Phantom Wiki is now the best Phantom resource out there. What makes the website stand out against all other past and current resources is the accuracy of the vast information stored plus the dedication of the people involved. We at Chronicle Chamber countless times hear of creators, editors, companies and publishers all using the website for research, ideas and much more. One of the main contributors of the website is Marko Davidavic and we spend an hour chatting with him about his jounary as a Phantom phan, some great discovers of his research like the comic from Iran, his Sweden LFMBEC visit plus more. Please note, due to where Marko lived the Internet connection was not the best, we apologise ahead of time for that, however press on as you will enjoy listening to Marko's story as a Phantom phan and Phantom wiki researcher. Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/chroniclechamber)
On August 25 2016 a new concept was released by Frew called "Phantom's World" which consisted of stories from around the world never previously published by Frew (and in many cases English). Four years later the series has stopped and we look at the series in retrospect.Frew #1761 was the first Phantom's World issue and along with issues #1770 and #1771 it was part of the regular Frew series. Middle of 2017 with an influx of Frew's own created stories it made sense for the Phantom's World concept to be ran as a separate series. That separate series stopped in 2020 with Phantom's World #12. In total 15 Phantom's World issues were released we saw in total 43 stories majority of the readers had never seen before. This includes counting multi part stories like "The Queen of Saba" which had three parts. A further breakdown of these stories are:31 stories in total were previously published stories29 are Fratelli Spada stories2 other stories published by RGE (Brazil) and Charlton (USA)12 stories are new never previously published storiesThis includes four stories that were previously created for other companies but where not printed. These are "Expedition in the Jungle Pt1 & Pt2" and "The Honglong Kidnapping Pt1 & Pt2"."Expedition in the Jungle Pt1" was completed and planned as a sequel in 1973-74 but Ferri stopped working on the Phantom. Around 2000, Ferri and Felmang completed the story and the second part.One of things that many loved about the series was the range of writers and artists many Frew readers have never seen before. Unfortunately many of the creators are unnamed but some of the creators Frew readers had never seen prior included:Angelo TodaraoOsvaldo GrassettiGiovanni FiorentiniSenio PratesiAntonio SciottiRaul BuzzelliMario PedrazziRaul BuzzelliSanto D'AmicoDino LeonettiFrank VerolaGiorgio CambiottiAnnibale CasabiancaJosé MenezesWalmir AmaralWanderley MayhéJoe GillPat BoyetteThis list does not include Felmang, Germano Ferri and Pidde Andersson who had previously published Phantom stories.We go over the stories, the issues, our positives and negatives with the series.

After our popular X-Band: The Phantom Podcast episode #155 with DC Phantom writer Mark Verheiden, we had to talk to to the other half of the ever popular DC Phantom series, Luke McDonnell.What follows is a packed 50 minutes of chatting with Luke as he talks all about the series plus much more including his favourite moments of the series, his time when he got to meet Lee Falk in person and how a certain cover was inspired by a Joe Kupert Tarzan cover. We also touch upon what he is doing now for Mr Comics and Art.It may be short compared to other podcasts, but this 50 minutes is a must listen to any Phantom phan who has enjoyed the 1989-90 DC Phantom series.You can follow Luke McDonnell at either:Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lfmcdonnell/MR Comics and Art: http://mrcomicsandart.com/Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/chroniclechamber)
Matt Kyme takes over the reigns of the X-Band: The Phantom Podcast and goes deep on the first Phantom story "The Singh Brotherhood" with a review that will sure cause a stir among some phans and die hard Falkists.

We review the latest installment of the 22nd Phantom saga which see's Kit and Heloise the children of our Phantom the 21st and Diana take over the role of the Phantom. For those who have come in late, read on below as we do a tale of the tape outlining the whole situation. In our review of the four stories as a whole, we get reviews by Gus Fraser and several phans who left their feedback on our social media platforms. It is then left to the three of us as we discuss everything from what we love and hate about the series. Not surprisingly the elephant in the room of the introduction of Nadir in the story, the proposed illegitimate son of Sandal Singh and the Phantom takes center stage. We discuss that in full. We then "play-nostradamus" as we predict what we would like to see with this 22nd Phantom saga.We would love to hear your views and opinions on Nadir and the ongoing saga but also our review on the podcast. You can leave your comments on our various social media platforms.It is important to take note of the following "Tale of the Tape"The story is set a "few years" into the future, imagines a dismal and dystopian future for the Phantom universe. An earthquake and tsunami has devastated Bangalla, wiped out Morristown, General Bababu is in tenuous charge of Bengalla, threatened by growing gang power and under pressure from international arms dealers. Sandal Singh is under threat as leader of the Singh pirates, with a coup planned by her cousin Rulah Singh. Bengalla in chaos...Meanwhile... The 21st Phantom has been missing for over a year. Hero was found in the first part of the story arc but Devil is still missing. Diana and the Phantom have split up over the possibility that The Phantom fathered Sandal Singh’s son (first appeared in 2015 Rodiagate [part 2 of Singh War - link to Phantomwiki] after apparently being conceived in 2011 Fateful Meeting - link to Phantomwiki). Has been named in pt 1 of this 4 part series - Nadir.Kit and Heloise initially struggled to work together but coming together now. During the Fight Against Singh story they split up, Kit to rescue father, Heloise to protect motherIf you want to read the stories, you need to read the following stories Fantomen:5/20196-7/201917/201922-23/2019Frew: 1864186618671868Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/chroniclechamber)
