Collection à 8 Francs
Nb: The "Franc" was the French currency before the changeover to the Euro currency, but here it represented what it was usually called "old Francs" because of a radical change decided in 1960 when 100 old Francs were being transformed into 1 new Franc; so 8 Francs in the forties were just 0,08 new Franc (or yet 8 cents) in the sixties.
If the series took place between the two "Aventures et Mystère" series released, by the same publisher, before and after the World War II, its quality was not however as good as them. The covers did not have drawings specifically illustrating scenes from the episodes, the size of oblong format was smaller and each issue had fewer pages as the paper was rarer in the two years following the end of the war. The price was also less expensive due to the economic restrictions of this time. It's also worth noticing that, as new Phantom adventures were not yet available, only pre-war already published material was released, something being then a way to save printing costs too.
