The first 7 issues of this colour series were published biannually by RGE until the end of 1986. The parent company, Editora Globo, then decided to cancel the practice of publishing comics under their RGE tradename, and continued to produce Fantasma comics for several years under the name Editora Globo. It was still essentially the same company but with a different name. The Fantasma Especial series re-started at #8 in February 1987, and changed to a monthly schedule that lasted until August 1989.

Globo started this series in February 1987 with the name Extra on the cover, but from #29 (May 1991) this name was dropped from the cover and replaced by a very small title Gibi Apresenta. In both cases, the title Fantasma was the dominant feature. The series mainly reprinted newspaper strip stories, but some issues contained original stories from Semic in Scandinavia. They were published bimonthly until #22 (Oct 1990), before switching to a monthly schedule. A total of 48 full colour issues were published before the series was cancelled in December 1992.
