Easter Eggs – Cameos

From MandrakeWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search


Several of Lee Falk's manuscripts contain elements that fall under the designations Easter Eggs or Cameos. Like names of characters whose are borrowed from people in the circle around Lee Falk, either directly or slightly rewritten. Occasionally one can find place and street names in stories that are clearly related to where Lee Falk stayed when the story was written.

Now and then also the artists have added easter eggs and cameos into some panels.

Easter Eggs in Mandrake stories

An easter egg is an in-joke that a comic book creator (typically the artist) has hidden in the pages of the comic for readers to find (just like an easter egg).

Cameos in Mandrake stories

A cameo role or cameo appearance (often shortened to just cameo) is a brief appearance of a known person, sometimes appearing as themselves.
