The Phantom Strikes


Eoin McCauley is organising another charity comic for Dublin Comic Con. Here’s the details from the man himself.

Hi Everyone,

I’m coordinating the official comic for Dublin Comic Con this year featuring the Phantom.

Under special license from King Features Syndicate, Lightning Strike Comics will publish a special anniversary comic celebrating 80 years of ‘The Ghost Who Walks’ available exclusively at this year’s Dublin Comic Con.

The comic will feature biographical material on both the Phantom and his creator Lee Falk as well as brand new original strip content.

Submissions are now open for local artists to submit material for consideration for the comic. There are also a limited number of writer positions available but these are few and will be very competitive. We hope to fill the roles with creators who have never been published before or whose self-published work has not exceeded 500 units. Successful applicants will have their work published in the comic and will be provided entry to the show. To enquire further on submitting material and to receive full T&Cs please e-mail:

Like last year’s Sherlock Holmes comic, all profits from sales of this year’s project will go to Crumlin Hospital, Temple Street Hospital and Tallaght Hospital’s Children’s Ward.

Thank you and all the best,
