The Phantom:
A Publishing History in Germany

by Hans Kiesl


Phantom Pocket Books - Series 2

Bastei Verlag (1980-1984)


Commencing in May 1980, the page count of Bastei's Phantom pocket books was reduced from 164 pages to 100 pages. The thinner books were considered to be a new series and their numbering was restarted at 1. There were 25 books in this second series, the last issue appearing in Nov 1984. An incomplete index is provided below. If you can help fill some gaps, please send your contributions to Bryan Shedden. Thanks go to Christian Moeller and John Cookson for their help with this index.
