Description

    Yalcin Dagli 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 crimefighting magician meets a black-clad "bad girl" in this colorful cover for the Turkish edition of Mandrake. Gouache on Bristol board, the image area measures 8" x 8.5" and the art is in Excellent condition.
