The Phantom:
A Publishing History in Sweden

by Andreas Eriksson

Team Fantomen Creators

Caricature of Team Fantomen

Below is a list of all known cover artists, story artists and story writers who have done work for Phantom publications in Sweden. In recent times, this dedicated group of people have become known as Team Fantomen. This is a truly cosmopolitan group, with representation from the following countries: Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Turkey, England, Scotland, Argentina, USA and New Zealand. Sadly no Aussies (yet)! Note that artists who have only contributed to publications in Norway and Finland are not included in this list (yet). Also, eight artists drew covers for early Fantomen editions that did not feature The Phantom, but their names are still included here.
