Great Show, this is a first. I was not aware that Frew published Mandrake Comics along with Phantom.

Nice post...keep it up,Balaji! :-)

I was not aware that Frew published Mandrake Comics along with Phantom

Chaturji,FREW majorly published Phantom noly,,,then in 1990-91 they publsihed 12 Mandrake Books containing some 8-9 daly strips of 1936-1945 period!!

But ,that's it...later Frew never pblished any Mandrake....donno why!! :(

Colin said...

Mandrake was published in Australia by two companies....Young's Publishing Company (Sydney, NSW) during 1960-1961 (a total of 24 issues, and hard to get too!) and, of course, Frew Publications. Jim Shepherd of Frew said that they discontinued after about 12 issues due to sales not being enough to continue the series, much to their shock and disappointment (same goes for the fans!).

Now thanx for the intro of where the "Dr Congo" scans came from, Balaji. Much appreciated!

Dear Bala ji!
It's not fair, at least there should be one more prize - runner up.

@Aditya:That's ok.
@Chatur Cheeta: You are welcome
@Dara:You are welcome
@Collin: Thank you for a brief write up. I have a comic of Goliath (physical copy) I bought on ebay from a seller in Australia from Young's Publishing. Appreciate your contributions.
@Prabhat: You are right, since you emailed me almost all answers already, will count you as a runner up...will send you some stories....
