"Ticket to Freedom" - story by Claes Reimerthi and art by Henrik Jonsson.
"Heart of Darkness" (Part 3) Nightmares story by Claes Reimerthi and art by Joan Boix.
Story :Ticket to Freedom written by Claes Reimerthi with art by a relatively new Phantom illustrator Henrik Jonsson. He was previously the artist and creator of The Norsemen for Fantomen and Fantomet but since 2014 has been producing Phantom art. 

My first response and impression when this story arrived was one of awe, largely due to the strength and darkness of his artistic interpretation.

See what you think, but I really like it’s brooding, edgy modernity and I believe Henrik Jonsson brings something new and exciting to his depiction of The Phantom and I look forward to seeing more of his work in the future! Claes Reimerthi’s story is up to his usual standard and there is a clever linkage between past, present and possible future events which might lead to a return of the villain at some stage but that is mere conjecture on my part!

The Heart of Darkness Part 3 - Nightmares completes this edition in magnificent style. Cue the scary music as Diana deals with murder and mayhem in what should have been just a routine sleepover at a girlfriends mansion. I’m not going  into specifics or be a plot spoiler by saying Reimerthi seems to have refined the art of packing a lot into a short episode and Diana really shouldn’t leave home without her man!
