Fantomas

Notes from Friends of Fantômas

Johannes Dalmasy writes: For the readers of those Editorial Novaro Fantomas comic books of our youth, another piece of trivia: the name of Fantomas' scientific advisor or academician-in-residence at his secret hideout covered by a constant mist of clouds: Professor Johannes Semo (or was it Nemo?). If I recall correctly the old professor had a robot for his assistant and the only glitch in his cybernetic brain was that he could never spell the professor's surname correctly. I remember the first name rather well because it is also my name and there are not many people—fictional or real—named Johannes in our Latin American context.

Many thanks for your contribution! And I think I remember from the one comic I've seen that the professor's name was indeed Semo.
