Mandrake stories


  • "About: Mandrake" by Lee Falk.


  • This special issue, released in 1965 by CELEG ("Centre d'Étude des Littératures d'Expression Graphique") (="Studies Center of Graphic Expression",a nostalgia comics club), was not intended for public distribution but reserved to CELEG's club members. Few copies were printed as 250 were numbered from #1 to #250 for subscribers and 26 were numbered from A to Z for founder members.
  • Even if it was relased for the French collectors market, the strips were in Italian language (Italian story titles : "L'uomo del mistero" & "Il mistero della casa da giuoco"), as none previous versions of these daily strips had been published in France before.
  • Inside, the book is sub-titled "Les débuts d'un détective privé" ("The beginnings of a private detective").
  • Strips are printed only on the right side pages of the book, the left pages being blank
  • Strangely enough, this volume 1 was printed after the preceding volume which was presented as volume 2.
