Reactions and Reviews

Review: Phantom Notes, one of the earliest 'zines on the POTO theme, is a 12-issue newsletter. The layout here is not as sharp as later publications, like Beneath the Mask, would have, and the spirit of the newsletter, like a gathering of fans, is more open to personal reporting of Phantom experiences and what the show means to its followers, than printing hard news coverage. The graphics content of Notes is quite high, and includes noteworthy cartoons by Thomas Bevel, who draws a great (and funny) Erik. Notes may not surprise you with much new information, but it will remind you of everything you enjoy about chatting with fellow fans. [1]
