- Full Description
The collected daily adventure comic strips of arguably the world's FIRST comic-strip, costumed, crime-fighter: Mandrake the Magician! Join Mandrake The Magician and his ever-faithful companion and trusty side-kick, Lothar, as they set out in search of high adventure in strange lands, strange dimensions and even stranger planets with nothing more than a top hat, a wand and the immense strength of Lothar, African Prince, to save the day! And the ability to create illusions (and magic?) to confuse the enemy!
As I said when reviewing the first volume of the Mandrake Sundays, I am really impressed with this era of Mandrake. The art is first rate, the adventures are interesting, there's an abundance of foreign intrique and pretty girls who need to be rescued.. There's a giant cobra, Klage the Monster, Princess Narda who is destined to become Mandrake's girlfriend, lovely Laura Gates, a werewolf, the Sad Spectre....
Includes a complete checklist of every Mandrake story from 1934 to 1965, all written by Lee Falk. Artist Phil Davis drew both the daily and Sunday strips for an unbroken 31 years from June 11, 1934, until his death in 1964. His wife, Marth Davis, who had assisted Phil since 1942, continued the strip until June 7, 1965, when the artist Fred Fredericks took over.
Starting from the very beginning in 1934, these are the original adventures of the famed magician and amateur detective, Mandrake the Magician. Join him as he uses his incredible hypnotic abilities and mysterious magical skills to combat criminal geniuses, gangsters, mad scientists, evil despots and even men from the Moon! This collection introduces Mandrake's nemesis, The Cobra, a master of disguise and an evil genius to boot! This book marks the beginning of a criminal campaign that would last the entire life of the Mandrake saga.
