I’ve spoken a few times in the past about Aatmaja Pandya’s excellent comic Phantom, a 2016 comic originally published by Shortbox and re-released via One Percent Press in 2018. Phantom is a tale of belonging, how memories affect our understanding of self and space, and how modern free movement and gentrification changes neighbourhoods. It is as powerful now as it was back in 2016.
