Mandrake Albüm

Unsold issues were collected in a series named Mandrake Albüm later with 3 issues included in each album. After the weekly run of the magazine ceased, the albums continued (#82 to #231) their run with reprints and occasional brand new adventures of Fred Fredericks, Phil Davis and a few stories from Fratelli Spada artists for several additional years.

Second series

This weekly series did not have any printed publishing dates. On the covers one find the text KDV Dahil. Turkey introduced value-added tax (VAT) from the 1st of January 1985, so the second Mandrake series was published after this date.

Issues in this series had 52 pages with newspaper stories by Lee Falk and Fred Fredericks.
