Phantom Comic #6 By Shakti Comics

Phantom Comic #6 has been made available for pre-order by Indian publisher Shakti Comics.

The comic will contain the Phantom story ‘The Aeronaut‘, written by Tony DePaul and illustrated by Paul Ryan. Published in full color, the comic will contain 56 gloss pages with cover art by Avishek Biswas. Due for release on the 21st of November 2022, the comic will be sold in a variety of languages, English, Hindi and Bengali.

A variant cover edition has also be announced, illustrated by Ankit Mitra. This edition will only be released in English, containing the same Phantom comic strip as the regular edition. The front cover of this variant can be seen above.

Both the regular and variant editions will also come with a complimentary ‘Phantom Standee‘, with a different standee on offer depending on which comic is purchased. Below we see Shakti Comics advertisements featuring the regular issue (seen on the left) and the variant edition (seen on the right).

It’s evident that Shakti Comics are having a bit of fun with the standee’s, promoting them as ‘Cute Phantom Standee‘. The Phantom is seen in a ‘caricature‘ style, with a black disc base used to hold the paper Phantom figure in an upright position.

The standee’s are a creative give-away item, with Shakti Comics very much thinking outside the box to the usual stickers, cards or bookmarks given away with Phantom comics by other publishers. They’re also an easy item to place in a postage envelope accompanying the comic.
