DescriptionAslan Sukur Sihirbaz (Mandrake) Painted Cover Original Art (undated). Mandrake, and the Phantom Magician in Mel Graff's The Adventures of Patsy ,are regarded by comics historians as the first superheroes of comics. The late comics historian Don Markstein has noted, "Depending on how you define the term, Patsy's recurring rescuer, The Phantom Magician, may have been the first superhero in comics. Some people say Mandrake the Magician, who started in 1934, was comics' first superhero." Lee Falk's famous magician-crimefighter may have more than he can cope with as a flying saucer lays down a death-beam in this terrific cover for the Turkish edition of Mandrake. The artwork measures 7.5" x 8", and it's in Very Good condition.
