Starting with The Cobra Returns,quite a few modifications/introductions were made in the Mandrake's universe!!
This classic itself has some major highlights as follows:
1.This was the first complete illustration done by Fred Fredrick's,after he finished Davis' incomplete work in The Traveller's Tale(S096) and what a story to start-off! Needless to mention, he was just brilliant from his very first (complete) assignment! :-)
2.Intro of Xanadu - the fabulous mountain-top mansion of Mandrake - and it's crazy drive-way!!
3.Intro of Inter-Intel as well as Jed.
4.Return of the oldest,and supposed to be dead,enemy of Mandrake & co. - The Cobra!!
Some special moments....
First time we heard about Inter-Intel and so the unique entrance of Xanadu...
[Note: This is a long strip and some pages are in Swedish as we yet to locate their original colored English counter-parts. But hopefully,that won't hamper your understanding of the plot as major part of the story is in English!Cheers!!]
