#140: Mandrake & L'uomo Mascherato Italian Scans

Presenting Italian scans I came across looking for Mandrake. Thanks to Unknown scanners.
The book has 2 Phantom stories and 1 Mandrake Daily. Nice coloring...

Since, I have the Mandrake Daily D010 in English , I am going to post it here as many people may not know Italian.

D010 - Mandrake in America 09-13-1937 to 01-29-1938

Hi Balaji, everyone.

Can an Italian reader confirm what I saw in the back cover:

“Sold only with Repubblica” and the following line ?

I do not really read Italian, but it seems obvious to me that this is a coupling offer: buy the newspaper (La Repubblica) and get the Comic Book for 4.90€ (so €5.80 every days excepted Friday: €6.10 - probably coupled with a TV program) ?

Is this correct ?

BTW: Panini Comics prints Marvels in France (in the whole Europe ?) since the mid 1990s (1995 I think).

Volume 15 seems to come from the year 2003.

Of course, a complete translation of the text comments (pages 7 thru 12) would be … fantastic!

Page 12: Topolino is the Italian name for Mickey ?


PS: of course, one can make the translation using Systran,® (free with MacOS X), but this would tage weeks to make it (a word-by-word translation, then a global re-write to get something really readable).

Good exercise for children who learn english (or italian), but not really for an oldster like me (55 yo).

2003 ?

I was living at Cannes (70Km from the Italian border) at that time!

Unfortunately, I was not aware of that!

Back to serious matters…

The Mandrake story (Mandraka va in America - Mandrake in America -) and The Phantom (L’Uomo Mascerato) Il prigioniero del’Himalaya (The prisoneer of the Himalaya) were released in 1970 by Nostalgia Press (hard cover) — if my memory is correct.

To know what Mandrake stories have been published in France, go to:

Thanks so much for the observation and the comments, I am glad to see them. I do hope somebody who knows Italian can do the translation of pages 7-12.Maybe Ciro Balzano could if he visits this blog, I know he does sometimes. I will email him, let's see.
Thanks for the bd link.
