Binbir Roman (the 3rd series of "1001 Roman" but with a non-numerized spelling of the first word of the title; ie. 1001 = Binbir (Thousand and one) was published by Türkiye Yayınevi in Turkey.


Binbir Roman was a weekly comics magazine featuring romance comics, as well as classical comics like "Rip Kirby", Kızıl Maske, "Batman", etc. Binbir Roman printed three Mandrake Dailies and then Sundays from original US dates from 1948 to 1951. The Sunday chronology was broken when "The Department Store Mystery" was printed before "The Ghost Whale". It looks like the two stories after "Curse of the Kavrun Emerald", namely ("The Venus Flytrap" and "Mystery of the Vanishing Homes"), are missing in Binbir Roman.
