    Mafia: Definitive Edition Gangster Monthly Comic Locations

    4 of these comics can be found throughout the story, the rest can be found in the Free Ride section from the main menu.

    If you prefer a map, check out the map created by PowerPyx here.

    Chapter 8: The Saint and the Sinner
    00:10 – Sarah Moll on a Mission – This is found on the second floor of the Hotel you go to. Once up here a guy will kick down a door on the left side of the stairs. Turn left and go into the room on the right side of the corridor, the comic is in the bathroom.

    Chapter 10: Omerta
    00:37 – A Trip to the Country – This will be in the downstairs are of the bank. Go down the stairs and the comic will be behind the desk on your right.

    Chapter 15: You Lucky *******
    01:04 – Steam Boys – Whilst your chasing Sergio you will encounter a red crane with lots of wooden planks all around the place. Just past the crane go inside the train cart to find the comic.

    Chapter 20 – The Death of Art
    01:21 – Moonlighting – When you get to Paulies apartment follow the stairs all the way to the top to find the comic on the table.

    The next set of comics are found in the Free Ride section

    01:46 – The Mafia Three – Go to the North Park area of the map, it’s just north of the words “North” on the map. Here you will find a ramp that you need to drive a car over to land onto the roof of the building to get the magazine.

    02:42 – Jimmy’s Vendetta – Go to the State Prison on the Central Island, on the right side of the prison you will see a red fence that’s got barbed wire on the top. Jump over the gate, the comic will be on the left side of the grass area by the prison wall.

    03:15 – All Saint’s Day Massacre – Go to the Works Quarters area of the map. Look for the small grass section that’s north of the letter “K” in Works. Go in the carpark, jump over the wall to get the comic.

    03:47 – The Racing Raketeer – Head to the Chinatown area of the map. The comic is in between the letter “H” in the alleyway.

    04:06 – Beware Hanoi Hangman – The comic can be found a little south west of the Terranova Bridge. Look for the small wooden structure by the fishing area.

    04:33 – An Offer You Can’t Refuse – The last comic is found in Clark’s Motel on the east side of the countryside. Climb up the wooden log on the right side of the place to get the comic.

    BabyishDuckCheers for the insight, I just found it easier to focus on one set of collectibles at a time. Easier to keep track for me.

    BabyishDuckGive it a few days it may be delayed unlocking. Happens a lot with different games. Failing that, you might need to delete your save from everywhere in the manage games and apps. Will need to collect again if still no luck.
