Kiwi Covers

“When looking at the figures for the Frew Phantom comic, we noticed a gradual drop in New Zealand sales over the past few years. We couldn’t account for this – there seemed to be no logical explanation. The Phantom has always been hugely popular there. Obviously, something needed to be done! We spoke to our printer about a plate change that could be performed during the end of the print run of the cover. They were, as usual, most accommodating and, as a result, we can now introduce the ‘Kiwi Cover’ – an acknowledgement to our cousins across the Tasman - that will depict the Phantom in his brown New Zealand costume. These will be distributed throughout NZ in a 50:50 ratio and some will also be made available here, in Australia, both online and to subscribers. It’s an experiment that we hope will work.”
