King Features Syndicate often make the claim that The Phantom is syndicated in "over 500 newspapers worldwide." Even so, it never ceases to amaze me how regularly I receive emails from people who cannot find a newspaper in their region that carries The Phantom. With this in mind, I've started to compile a list of newspapers that publish The Phantom daily and Sunday strips. Click on the following links to view the lists for those regions:
- Australasia : Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Papua New Guinea
- Scandinavia : Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark
- North America : USA, Canada
- Central America : Mexico, Panama, Martinique
- Europe : France, Greece, Portugal, Spain
- Asia : Philippines
- Africa: Tunisia
The following countries do NOT publish The Phantom strips in any newspapers: Algeria, Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Benin, Burkina-Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Cambodia, Central African Republic, Chad, Estonia, French Guiana, Gabon, Germany, Guinea Republic, Ivory Coast, Lebanon, Laos, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Madagascar, Mali, Mauritania, Mauritius, Monaco, Morocco, Netherlands, New Caledonia, Niger, Rawanda, Reunion Isle, Seychelles, Samoa, Senegal, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Tahiti, Togo, Vanuatu, Vietnam.
So far these lists account for a total of 214 newspapers that publish The Phantom strips (168 dailies, 46 Sundays). I need your help to make the lists more complete. If you know of any other newspapers that carry The Phantom, please complete the form below. All contributions will be acknowledged when these lists are updated.
