Overview

The continuing adventures of the world's first costumed crime fighter. This is the first collection of the Fred Fredericks' Mandrake The Magician Sunday comic strips. Offering a heady mix of action, adventure, high jinx and drama!

Following Frederick's updating of Mandrake Welcome to Mandrake the Magician of the 1960s, hipper and cooler than his 1930s incarnation thanks to the art stylings of Fred Fredricks. And yet, both Fredericks and Mandrake's creator Lee Falk managed to land our top-hatted hero into some pretty outlandish and action packed adventures on this Earth and beyond! This volume includes the unwelcome return of Mandrake's arch enemy, The Cobra, the introduction of a sinister new crime syndicate called The Underworld and the creation of counter crime organization called Inter-Intel, headed up by Mandrake.
