P.S. I guess, Mandrake story was partially taken from D 156-157 or S 123-124. Can anybody identify it?

I knew that #237 having a MTM story,as mentioned in that old MTM-Ijc Index,but had no idea which strip! Now after seeing the scans,I can confirm it's "partially" from a 21-week-long sunday:S123(The Bank Robbery) and the most weird treatment from ToI!!
They had published both S122 & S123 in the previous issue(#236:The Towering Colossus),so there was no need to publish a "little piece" from same sunday,well this part was omitted in #@236!!
Anybody can understand how poorly the panels were edited!! :(

As a funny trivia,due to this smallest & incomplete 3-page story,now #237 also incld. in the list of Indrajal-Mandrake!! ;o)

@ Hozo: Thanks! I never had this physical copy. So, I was thrilled read C2C scans.

Due to such editing, we are fans of strips. :)
Hoping soon all Mandrake strips we can collect & enjoy.

When I noted that the real issue was not available, shared first. Soon #236 will be posted also.
