Everyone knows the fans in Australia are SUPER FANS when it comes to The Phantom. To celebrate the masked hero’s 80th Anniversary this year, King Features Australian agent, Merchantwise, staged a competition. Entrants had to purchase The Phantom 2016 Annual from Frew Publishing, and refer to the back inside cover ad to find out how to enter.
The big Prize Package, with a total retail value of $550, included:
- Three (3) x 12 “ limited-edition Phantom statues
- One (1) Funko pop vinyl Phantom
- One (1) 3D hero lamp

Entrants had to answer this question in 50 words or less: “Why do you still read the Phantom and how has the Phantom influenced your life?” They also had to send in a photo of their personal Phantom collection.
The single Major Prize winner has been chosen! Congratulations to NOAH WARNEKEN!!!
“I started liking Phantom comics when my pop gave me a copy of an old Phantom comic he had.
“Now I’m ADDICTED. I use my pocket money to buy them. They make me WANT to read (I didn’t like reading before) — I love THEM!!!!!!!!!”
Way to go, Noah!
