What a story this is! Mandrake meets Narda for the first time. She does quite a lot to Mandrake which I had never known until now....well I won't give away the story.
With all the recent chaos in Egypt, it is such a coincidence that Mandrake and Lothar in the story are in Alexandria, Egypt.
Thanks to the Australian Women's weekly archives for having this story published and made available. Thanks to Venkit Subramanian for extracting the scans from the PDFs and cleaning them.
For, the first time, the story in black and white has a few colored panels. I guess, Phil Davis was experimenting how it would turn out. The black and white scans were back soon enough.
So many magic tricks in this story are very creative of Lee Falk.
Also, I had never seen Mandrake use some harsh language on Lothar before. The last panel was a little disrespectful.
The scans are barely readable, but these are the first ones I can find for this daily in English. I have the PDFs of the story if someone wants to read it that way.
