Mandrake stories


  • "Du temps que Mandrake n'avait pas peur de la magie", by Francis Lacassin.


  • This special issue, released in 1964 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 426 were numbered from #1 to #426 for subscribers and 26 were numbered from A to Z for founder members.
  • Strips appear only on the right side pages of the book, the left pages being blank.
  • Inside, the book is sub-titled "4 voyages vers l'ailleurs" ("4 Trips to somewhere else").
  • Strangely enough, this volume 2 was printed before the following volume which was presented as volume 1.
  • As the February 21, 1937 Sunday page remained unpublished in France, it was replaced by a separate Polish reprint page firstly issued in Świat Przygód (a flying inserted page with translated text was added) / see below. (in the 1967 reprint Mandrake roi de la magie (CELEG / Giff Wiff 23 bis) the same inserted page has a French version).
  • The book was re-released in 1967 - with a cover colored in orange - by the comics review "Giff-Wiff" as issue 23 bis of their collectors series printed for a more large public.
