Hi, all! Welcome to the Editor's Dispatch.
As you all know, Fred Fredericks, the longtime artist and writer of the Mandrake the Magician comic strip, announced his retirement recently. The comic strip has since gone into reprints, serving up great Mandrake stories from the archives.
Personally, I've sort of been hoping this means there's a spot for another world-class magician out there, so I've been polishing some tricks of my own.
Okay, I guess gesturing hypnotically doesn't work over the internet. Maybe I need a top hat and a cape first.
Well, in that case, we'll just have to do a little web-trickey and gesture you over toward our new Mandrake the Magician website!
Yep, we're really pleased to to make Mandrake the newest addition to the Comics Kingdom Network. Please do go check out the site. We'll be posting Mandrake-themed blog entries occasionally. At the moment, we're talking about the unfinished "Vanguard of Shadows" storyline, and we'd love you to come over and share your ideas about how you might have ended the series.
And, as always, if you have any suggestions for things you'd like to see on the site, we'd love to hear all about them.
Have a great Christmas, to those of you who celebrate it, and we'll see you again next week!
(That's not me in the picture, sadly. I'm not that suave-looking.)
