Using this translation turn the pages a bit odd - sorry

Mystery's of Mandrake the Magician

Censorship in Cover art



I was reading the the Mandrake adventure Il Satalico Retaggio made by Carlo Cedroni, printed in the Italian issue 111 from the Albi il Vascello nouva serie. After reading the adventure I had a look at the cover, it was not signed, but I guess it was made by C. Cedroni.

Something was strange …………. I once more had a look at the cover and then.... at the similar cover for the french editione, Mandrake issue 236.


The Golem figure was not there ! To scary for the french children ?
