Included as a newspaper lift-out in the Jornal Jovem newspaper, Suplemento em Quadrinhos contain 16 full color pages measuring 27.5cm x 41.5cm. Only 3 editions were published.
Besides the Phantom, each Suplemento em Quadrinhos contains a mix of comic book characters, including Mandrake the Magician, Zorro, Flash Gordon, Brick Bradford, Batman, X-Men, Donald Duck and Steve Canyon to name a few. A full page was dedicated to one comic book character.
The first Suplemento em Quadrinhos was found in Jornal Jovem newspaper published on the 31st of December, 1967. The front page of Jornal Jovem advertised the lift-out on it’s front page.

The 3 versions of Suplemento em Quadrinhos were again republished in 1968 with some minor differences. Number one contains the same comic strips and resembles the version seen in the first publication above, however the edition number printed on the front cover has been altered. Instead of number 1 appearing within the ‘O’, we now see the number 0.

These editions are numbered 2 and 3 respectively, with number 2 now containing an illustration of Mandrake the Magician and number 3 now containing an illustration of Batman.
