How Would You Have Ended “Vanguard of Shadows”?

By Jeremy Meltingtallow

Hi Mandrake fans,

Welcome to the official Mandrake the Magician website! We are so glad you are here, joining the lively community of dedicated Mandrake fans. There are 10 years of Mandrake archives on this site, so have fun exploring the comics using the “Calendar” feature above.

In today’s post, we have a question for our fans.

As you know, Fred Fredericks, the longtime artist and writer of the Mandrake the Magician daily-only comic strip, announced his retirement recently. The comic strip has since gone into reprints, serving up great Mandrake stories from the archives.

The last story Fred wrote, “Vanguard of Shadows,” began on 5/27/13. The last strip from that storyline ran on 7/6/13, and the storyline did not have a clear ending.
