#266 - S162_TheDolphins_(09-03-89_to_01-14-90)

Pop culture in America (probably the world around) has, in the name of liberalism, often been in the forefront of shining light on controversial subjects, to a great extent. One such topic is environment awareness, which started off as a movement to educate people about the effects of man's action on the environment. It has now deteriorated into eco-terrorism and a whole new false religion called "Climate Change".











We see in this story, Lee Falk having some dolphins lecture Mandrake and friends on the ill-effects of oil spillage into the oceans, just 6 months after one of the biggest environmental disasters in history - The Exxon Valdez incident of March 24, 1989.

This story has a special place in my heart. It was the sharing of the Italian language version of this story, that helped me become friends with one of the greatest (but very silent) fans of Mandrake comics - Paulo Marques - who shared a very rare Sunday strip (The Pacifica) and a whole lot of Mandrake daily strips including the two Mandrake Wedding stories, without much ado.

Not sure what dates u r talking about. I checked my stock and I don't see any missing.

Once again,do u have S156 in complete strip-format(color or b/w) i.e without any Pioneer fillers??

AJAY said...

Thanks a lot . Very nice scans .

I do have all 34 strips of S156 in color & B/W. B/W seems to be the full version. The color version seems to have one panel (deemed insignificant by the paper) missing from some if not all strips.

HojO said...

So plz post that S156 version as the one we all have(@on-line) has some Pioneer fillers,which incld. all panels no doubt,but not the strip-version exactly...
