  • Message from the Publisher:
    The Phantom and Phoenix continue their frightening duel in The Middle of the Earth!
    Only time will tell whether the climax of this story signals the end of Phoenix, because according to Greek mythology, the Phoenix was a fabulous sacred bird of Egypt which could recreate itself in an all-consuming fire! We have a fire which engulfs our Phoenix at the end of The Middle of the Earth!
    In our next edition (Frew #1460, on sale 27 October) we return to our cyberspace adventure in a new episode, Lost in Cyberspace. If you are into high-tech video games, you will love this one! The Phantom is asked to return to cyberspace to help scientists unlock the mystery - and finds himself pursued by a gun-wielding game player who has accidentally pressed a few too many buttons and finds himself also transported into another world. The game player doesn't fully realise his predicament and continues to pursue his screen quarry - which just happens to be The Phantom. The adventure has been written and illustrated by the brilliant Hans Lindahl, who must surely be a video game buff. Sheer brilliance! Remember - back to cyberspace in Frew #1460!
