The "Almanaque do Mandrake" was released in November-December to coincide with summer school vacations in Brazil.
Almanaque de Férias do Mandrake
A few years a similar album, "Almanaque de Férias do Mandrake", was released in July to coincide with winter school vacations. There were no holyday albums in the years 1966 and 1967, but both years an issue from the ordinary "Mandrake" series (issues 115 and 128) had the sub title Edição Super Epecial de Férias printed on the cover. In addition issue 154 of the Mandrake series released in the holyday season 1969 has the subtitle Super Especial Colorida. In 1970 there were released two issues of "Almanaque do Mandrake", the one without a printed calendar inside is likely released for the holyday season.
Interesting the similar Brazilian "The Phantom" series; "Fantasma" and "Almanaque do Fantasma" missing the holyday albums in the years 1966 and 1967, and with the sub title Edição Super Epecial de Férias on the covers of the "Fantasma magazine" issues 116 and 129.
In 1979 a second "Almanaque do Mandrake" series was launched.
