From the very beginning in 1934, these are the original adventures of the famous comic strip detective - collected in full for the very first time! Mandrake is a master of hypnosis, whose ability causes his opponents to encounter wild illusions, giving the heroes the upper hand in a fight.

A collection of (6 story arcs of) Lee Falk's Mandrake Sunday strips from the 1930s. Mandrake was my favorite comic book character when I was a kid: he was handsome and debonair, always on the side of the underdog, and used his superfast hypnotic technique to trick the baddies. In Sweden, he was published as a feature in The Phantom comic books, so I never read his stories in their published order. It is great to see them resurrected in color and I hope that Titan Comics continues this series of reproductions. Probably not to be recommended for someone who hasn't read Mandrake before (they are somewhat dated), but if you have a particular affinity for Golden Age comics, they are quite entertaining. ( )
