CW: Can you zip these images into a single file and upload to mediafire? TIA!

Colonel Worobu said...

It wouild also be a nice idea to just post the comics in numerical order.

That way, we can know what to expect next week and it would be easier to keep track of what has been posted already.

Comic Guy said...

#Col.Worobu:Zip links are very much being link for covers of 101-150 has been already provided and for this they will be coming soon.
Well,colonel personally what i feel is to expect the unexpected gives more thrill...otherwise posting/reading comics in numerical order might curb the joy of expecting the unknown which comes next.

Thanks Guys,

This is unreal ! the Indrajal Collection gave a lot of us an oppurtunity to re-live the 1970s /1980s ... this brought back memories of friends,family and ofcourse the neighbour's son who nicked few of my collection.

Does anyone have the Commando/Western Library /Top Secret - though in monochrome


Well Wisher

Some info about Sy

Seymour "Sy" Barry, born in 1928, is an American comic strip artist. In junior high school a teacher encouraged him to try out for admission to the renowned School of Industrial Art in New York City. Among thousands of candidates, Sy was one of 100 who was accepted to the school in 1943.
After he completed his studies Sy got to work as an assistant for his older brother, Dan Barry. Dan was responsible for the Flash Gordon comic strip, and Sy worked on the strip as an inker. After having this job for a while, he was even to allowed to pencil the strips from time to time, and he often did uncredited stand-in jobs for Dan.
Having worked on both Tarzan and Flash Gordon, he went on to draw the world's most successful adventure comic strip, The Phantom for 33 years from 1962 to 1994, succeeding Ray Moore and Wilson McCoy. Sy is credited for giving the Phantom his modern look, which has not changed since he took over the strip. Creator Lee Falk liked his drawing style so much that he quickly decided to modernize the entire comic strip, giving Bengalla a black President and the Jungle Patrol a black colonel.

Sy frequently used pencil artists on the strip, working primarily as an inker (although he often drew entire stories when time permitted). Pencilers included George Olesen, Joe Giella, Bob Forgione, Andre LeBlanc, and Carmine Infantino.

At the height of their popularity, Lee Falk and Sy Barry's Phantom stories were read by over a 100 million people every day, in newspapers as well as comic books. His stories are still irregularly published in countries such as Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Australia, in comic books or hardcover collections.

Personal life

Tired with the stressing deadlines he constantly had to face, Barry retired from the newspaper strip in 1994. He has also painted the Phantom several times, and some of his sketches have been used as covers for Phantom comics around the world.

R. Wilson McCoy (1902-1961) is the second artist on the (still running) The Phantom comic strip. He started out as Ray Moore's assistant, but when Moore retired from the strip after a war-injury, McCoy took over the entire strip (1949).

McCoy is well known for his unique, naive style of drawing. Unlike Ray Moore, he always drew with tremendous attention to details, and used photographic references for every drawing, having his family and friends pose for him and act out the different situations happening in the stories he worked on.

Like Phantom-creator Lee Falk, Wilson McCoy was a world traveler with an adventurous spirit. He frequently visited far off jungles, and visited several native tribes, among them the Ituri tribe, consisting of pygmies, much like the Bandar tribe in the Phantom strip.

Wilson McCoy studied at the Art Institute of Chicago, The American Academy, and Washington University's School of Fine Arts, where he later served on the faculty. Working as a commercial artist, he made paintings for Liberty Magazine covers, calendars, prints, pin-ups and advertisements for major companies. When his friend Ray Moore served in the military during WWII, McCoy took over the responsibilities of illustrating the syndicated newspaper strip, 'The Phantom'. His wife, Dorothy, did the lettering. McCoy continued drawing the strip until his death in 1961, after which it was continued by Bill Lignante for a short while, and then Sy Barry.

Robert Wilson McCoy was born in Troy, Missouri on April 6th, 1902. McCoy died on July 20th, 1961 after a heart attack, with Sy Barry succeeding him on the Phantom. After him, he left his wife Dorothy, and two children: Robert and Carol.

His Phantom stories are occasionally published in the Australian Frew Phantom comic, and the Swedish, Norwegian and Finnish Phantom comic books, and also in hardcover editions.

Raymond S. Moore, better known as Ray Moore, was the co-creator, together with Lee Falk, and first artist on what would grow to become the world's most popular adventure comic strip, The Phantom, which started in 1936. Moore had previously worked as Phil Davis' assistant on the Lee Falk-created Mandrake the Magician comic strip, which was why he was thought to be a suitable choice to draw Falk's new creation.

Life and career

Little is known about Ray's personal life, but he was born in Oklahoma, most likely in 1905, and he lived most of his life in Missouri until his death in 1984, together with his wife, Claire Moore. He was the son of a jeweler, and originally intended to become an engineer, before he realised that he could live of his job as an artist.

Moore started drawing The Phantom in 1936, after creator Falk realised he would not have the time to do the artwork in the strip himself. He had previously worked as an assistant on Falk's other strip, Mandrake the Magician.

Ray was involved in an accident during his career as a pilot in World War II, which made him unable to keep on drawing The Phantom, therefore leaving work on the strip to his assistant Wilson McCoy.

Ray Moore had a moody and mysterious drawing style, with a style of shadowing which suited the mysterious Phantom character. However, he slightly changed his style later on, focusing less on the dark atmosphere he had become known for, in advantage of a more realistic style, with more details and a less moody style of drawing.

Lee Falk always claimed that Moore was the best artist on the Phantom, because of his talent for drawing beautiful looking girls. It was this talent that led Falk to creating many crime corporations only consisting of women, like the infamous Sky Band.

Moore is known by fans to be as mysterious as the Phantom character he co-created. Only two photos of him are known to exist, and if he on a rare occasion did an interview, he seldom mentioned his private life.

Ray Moore died in 1984 of natural causes. He was survived by his wife, Claire, who passed away in 2005.

Trivia on Moore

* Moore would sometimes use his wife Claire as a model when drawing the Phantom's girlfriend, Diana Palmer.
* The idea of the Phantom's pet wolf Devil is believed to have come from Ray Moore's lifelong pleasure of drawing wolves.
* In Paramount Pictures' The Phantom movie adaptation, starring Billy Zane, the butler of the Palmer-family is called "Falkmoore", a reference to Lee Falk and Ray Moore.
(The movie was on sometime back on HBO)
