Wanted to check on readers if they have scans of these Pioneers....

Have been on a buying binge for comics lately as everyone maybe.

I have already scanned Vol 1 which I plan to post for the real big one #100 if I get there...
(Top Row second one on the right).

Does anyone have the physical book or scans of The Official Mandrake Sundays by Lee Falk and Phil Davis Volumes 2 and 3 The Singing Devils and the City of Marvels?


I was bidding on this set last night and had the winning bid for $25 when someone outbid me for $25.50 when it was 20 seconds away for the auction to end. Was really annoyed.....(Grrrrr!!!)









There was another set. I won that bid and got these.
Wanted to know if anybody among readers had scans of these already. Also in this series (The Official Mandrake Sundays by Lee Falk and Phil Davis)

Four books are in this lot:
1) Mandrake the Ultimate by Lee Falk and Phil Davis
January 30th, 1955 through November 25th, 1956
Volume One

2) The Official Mandrake Sundays by Lee Falk and Phil Davis
July 17, 1949 through May 13, 1951
Volume Four: The Evil Wizard

3) Mandrake Sundays by Lee Falk and Phil Davis
May 20, 1951 through March 22, 1953
Volume Five: Strike of the Evil Magician

4) Mandrake Sundays by Lee Falk and Phil Davis
March 29th, 1953 through January 23rd, 1955
Volume Six

Here are the pictures:

"BTW Am I crazy buying these books?"

I went thru this phase of buying comics at exorbitant prices on ebay & abebooks.com a few years ago...luckily for my wallet I have stopped nowadays.

But I guess you can always sell them back on ebay for probably at a higher price than you bought it for.

@Col.W: Am I glad to hear that. I am not alone then. Great Minds think alike. True, so let me ask what books you currently have that have not been scanned. Thanks
@Krishna: I am glad to hear that. I am not alone then. Great Minds think alike. I will try and send me an email, can communicate offline. Thanks.

None of the comics that I bought were Mandrake/Phantoms. I got the old Titan Books series of James Bond & Modesty Blaise. Other purchases included old Gold Key Tarzan's by Russ Manning, XIII, Blueberry etc. If you want Modesty or James Bond let me know and I will send some scans.

Other than that I have a huge scan collection of comics downloaded from usenet.

I have the pioneer series some 10 or 12 comics. I downloaded them last week from a torrent site. Let me know if you need it... They are mostly hi quality prints of the early strips
