(this edition is the 1308th actually printed)
Release Date: 5 January 2001
Comment from Guran
Jim seems to have forgotten about the reprint of Oogooru and the Witchmen in #1216, only two years ago. You can add this to the publishing details shown on pages 4 and 108.
There's also several small mistakes in the 2000 Frew Phantom Publishing Chronology (pages 264 and 265):
A more accurate publishing chronology for 2000 is available here, in addition to Frew in 2000: The Year in Review.
- #1250 contained The Magic Ivory Cage by Bill Lignante, but this has not been included in any of the lists.
- #1252 Tiger Girl and #1264 Queen Pera the Perfect were Lee Falk stories adapted by Ulf Granberg.
- #1262 Viva Las Vegas was written by Tony De Paul, not César Spadari.
- #1264 The Treasure Hunters was written by Tony De Paul, not Lee Falk.
- #1270 The Strange Bank Robber was written by Claes Reimerthi, not Lee Falk.
- #1279 The Secret City was written by Tony De Paul, but is not credited in the lists.
- #1279 is shown twice in the Best Selling Frew Issues list.
