Happy Anniversary Fantomen !

You will notice that The Ghost Who Walks is attired in the dark blue color he wears in Northwestern Europe to this day. His trunks, however are a decidedly American baby blue and black stripe, unlike his current red and black ones.
Thanks to Pidde for reminding me of this important event and you should all be sure to check out the wonderful commemorative book at:
