Issue overview

Issues with Mandrake

Phantom Adventure Kit

After the first issue there was produced a promotional package called Phantom Adventure Kit, that included three comic books (two of which could not be bought elsewhere) and memorabilia.

Second series

In February 2003, the entire series was relaunched with at least 20 (21 ?) issues published more or less simultaneously. Most issues, but not all, featured stories that had already been published in the first series, but with new cover art and new issue numbering. None issues with Mandrake.
