Behind the scenes


"Terror from Outer Space" is a cut and past story. Mandrake, Narda and Magnon are lifted from Phil Davis art from late 50s and early 60s. While others figures and panels are taken from other various sources, a few look like drawn by Mirabella. This collage story was added extra ink and became a new Mandrake story.
