The "Mandrake the Magician" series was released without any pubishing date on the covers or inside. The change in the triangle logo on the covers from issue 3 to 4 (L. Miller & Son vs L. Miller & Co) indicate that the series started in 1959. Also an ad in the first issue of "Detective Comic" (Copyright 1959, L. Miller & Co) said that: there are more of these exiting 68 page Miller Comics at your bookstall or newsagents.

Although it is printed published monthly inside there must have been variations in the release rate. The last issue has a daily story from 1963 inside, and is likely published in 1964. The series spanning about 4 years, but only with 24 issues.

Many of the covers of these comics were credited to Philip Wilding and Cashier.
