MANDRAKE VOL 1

New release: Mandrake the Magician comics from the 1960s return in a deluxe edition by Hermes Press! Slated for a November release, Mandrake the Magician: the Complete King Years Volume One collects the early Silver Age classics from King Comics featuring the famous crime-busting magician. Hermes always does a great job including fun extras, like vintage artifacts and original art. Spy Vibers with an interest in eccentric vigilantes, detectives, and the occult should not miss this edition. Mandrake was created by Lee Falk in 1934, two years before he launched The Phantom, and the character went on to defend the world against arch-villains and mystic baddies through a long series of comic strips, comic books, radio shows, and a cliffhanger serial. From the Hermes Press blog: "This first volume of the complete comic book run of Mandrake the Magician presents the first five comics in the series together with all of the back-up stories printed in King Features’ Flash Gordon title. These stories feature artwork by such Silver Age luminaries as Don Heck, Werner Roth, and Andre LeBlanc, with scripts by Dick Wood. Volume One also contains tons of extras including extensive essays on Lee Falk’s Mandrake the Magician and the artists who created the comic book series. Also included is the complete original art to one of the back-up stories." Enjoy!
