Episode #126: Interview with Alex Saviuk
In this episode we are excited to be joined by the one and only Alex Saviuk.Alex is an accomplished and experienced Phantom artist, and in fact boasts the extraordinary achievement of having worked for the greatest variety of The Phantom publishers of any artist in history! His Phantom credits (both covers and stories) include: Marvel, Egmont, Moonstone, Lightning Strike Comics, Frew, Hermes Press, and even the King Features' syndicated Sunday strip!Over the course of this extensive and expansive conversation, we talk about all of those publishers and more!As luck would have it, this chat was recorded immediately after the announcement of the end of the Spider-Man strip (both Dailys and Sundays will finish with the conclusion of the current stories, mid-March 2019), and it fascinating to hear directly from a key creator of that strip at this sad time. We also talked about the Rainbow flag story The Golden Eagleand other topics like working with Stan Lee for over 20 years and much more. As you would expect with a Phantom career 30+ years, this is a mammoth podcast to listen too. Get that cuppa and get ready for one of the best podcast interviews with a Phantom creator you will likely ever hear.As always - Happy Phantoming!Support the show
Episode #125 - Interview with Sal Velluto
The team of Chronicle Chamber chat with Sal Velluto, an American Italian artist who we have admired ever since his work first graced a Fantomen / Frew comic. One thing we where surprised at was he has only been doing Phantom comics, covers and images for 12 years, yet he feels like an elder statesmen who has been at it for years.We learn all about Sal, from growing up in Italy and reading Spada Fratteli comics to working on comics around the world from Egmont, Frew and Hermes Press. Three continents and two hemispheres. We ask questions about the fateful Hermes Press comic book series and gain an amazing insight into those delays plus learn so much more including how Massimo Gamberi and Angelo Todaro drew comics and covers for Frew.It may be a three hour listen but you will be glued to your earphones eagerly listening even if one of the team falls asleep half way through.Enjoy and as always, Happy Phantoming!Support the show
Episode #124 - July 2019 Comics & News
Our determination to keep the conversation under two hours this month was thwarted by a few huge recent announcements in the world of the Phantom!With Billy Zane hitting Australian shores in a few short months, two new exciting collections of Phantom merch, and a raft of reading to get through there's a lot to discuss in the world of the Phantom at the moment!Of course, our ever-reliable Scandinavian correspondent Mikael Lyck also gives us his detailed insight into the latest Fantomen issues.Enjoy and as always, Happy Phantoming!Support the show
