Future issues planned as of 13 February 2001 (subject to change without notice):

New names here are Per Erik Hedman (Donald Duck writer) and artist Paul Ryan (American). Another new item to hopefully appear in Fa 14/2001 will be a 10-page Phantom story in cartoon style (something like Batman), by Ben Raab and Dan Davis. Two new non-Phantom contributions will be The Child Crusade by Rolf Gohs, and Merlin by Claes Reimerthi and Ola Skogäng.

My thanks to Kjell Steen for providing this information.
