Out now from Red 5 Comics, this is the penultimate part of Legacy Of Mandrake The Magician.
The truth about Mandy’s origin starts to unravel! Learn what links the great Mandrake the Magician with his teenage successor… Something that the new Mandrake may not be prepared for!(W) Erica Schultz (A) Diego Giribaldi, Juan Pablo Massa (CA) Amelia Vidal
The penultimate part of this legacy story works really well. There is some revisionist history going on here, with a story being told and a different one being shown. It is very well done and confirms out suspicions.
Those suspicions are well founded and by the end, Mandy realises this too. Nevertheless there is a good supporting cast here and I would like to see more of this younger generation.
Perhaps I’m just remembering the old ‘Defenders Of The Earth’ series!
The art works really well, with the magic scenes especially good. The magic changes and battles really take good advantage of the quality colouring.
This has been a week built mini-series and ends at a suitable point for the conclusion.
