Mandrake the Magician by Lee Falk, Phil Davis (0880-) 1st Appearance June 11 1934, 1st Sunday Feb 3, 1935 - Mandrake the Magician is the other great comic-strip of master cartoonist Lee Falk, creator of the Phantom.    The Magic began in 1934 with the introduction of Mandrake and Lothar, his Royal African companion.  The strip was always an adventure strip with storylines lasting a few months at a time.   Mandrake and Lothar would battle the strange forces of evil.   In the early days, the evil was usually mystical and bizarre in nature, later it would be more common evil like crooks and smugglers.   The action of Mandrake was always fast and tight.   That artwork by Phil Davis, who drew the strip into the 1960s was superb.  The market for mandrake is very good.  Sundays were usually offered as Tabs or Halfs of smaller,  Rare fulls exist but are sold at a high premium.   Most Sundays move fairly quickly, especially first-year 1935 pages which sell at a premium.   Dailies are somewhat uncommon and sell quickly at premium as well.
