#Comic No.50:Sunday Strip and Egmont Phantom

My fellow comic lovers the most awaited 'Golden Jubilee' 50th post is presented hereby consisting of a Sunday Strip (Sunday 11) and a Egmont Phantom which includes a Mandrake story too.
The reasons behind selecting these comics for 50th post are quite obvious as the Sunday strip is a Falk/Moore/MCcoy masterpiece which deals with our Phantom story revealing his childhood,schooling and then transformation to the next Phantom in the family line.The story is a classic one in all aspects as Falk later rewrote the same story again illustrated by MCcoy solely which was also published by Indrajal Comics (Vol.24.No.14).There are minute differences in both stories which can be easily pointed by our 'those' few visitors cum 'Phantom Research Scholars':-o)
The Egmont Phantom,which is technically bright but weak other wise as compared to Falkian era, is just posted to give the taste of Non-Falk phantom stories to our comparatively new visitors but the highlight of it is the initial Mandrake story illustrated by Phil Davis,which the Mandrake fans will surely enjoy.
Although there are yet quite a many Phantom/Mandrake Indrajals still remaining to be posted but personally i would like to see more and more visitors opting for non-Phantom/Mandrake stories so that a 'balanced' taste could be maintained in the blog.

Hi CW,

Congratulations on your 50th Post. This is really a bumber issue.

As you know I am always around but just do not post comments because of ...... ( I am sometimes surprised how you keep him undercontrol) Anyways do not want to spoil the mood here.

With TCP retired and ICC not here for a long time now You keep the Phantom and Indrajal spirit rolling.

It was again great to see ICC here but his blog says he is here for a small time. Come on ICC we want you back.

Congrates again.

Comic Guy said...

#ICC:Thanks!!Welcome back pal,we missed you a lot.Yeah,it will be nice to post colored one too.I will soon be asking them from you.

Nice post. Quite suitable to the occasion. Moore's illustrations are fantastic. I always felt he had an edge over McCoy, specially when it comes to draw landscapes. Other stories are also good.

Congratulations for achieving this landmark. Many more to come.

panda said...

wonderful... tussi great ho ji. please if you can post frews in colour. thanks much more than a tonne .

Ciro said...

Congratulations! comic World is at high level!

Colonel Worobu said...

Hi Chandoba! Welcome back :o)

We all missed you dearly.

Patrolman CW gets a medal of honour from the unknown commander for such a nice double issue!

Colonel Worobu said...

CW: Egmont was a very nice change from the routine Indrajal posts.

Let's also have some non-phantom/mandrake/bahadur stuff like Flash Gordon please? If no one else here minds, of course :o)

SATISH said...

CONGRATS--CW FOR A FANTASTIC UNBEATEN 50 IN QUICK TIME.HOPE YOU CONTINUE TO ENTERTAIN US LIKE THIS.
I WAS A BIT DISAPPOINTED NOT TO SEE ATLEAST ONE OF INDRAJALS IN
50 TH POST.
HOPE YOU HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN MY CHOICES,ITS QUITE SOMETIME SINCE I SAW THEM.PHANTOMS PLEASE.
THEN YOU CAN POST FLASH.ANYWAY,ITS YOUR CHOICE,YOU ARE THE BOSS.

Comic Guy said...

#Chandan:Bahut Shukriya,Badi Meharbaani.....
#TPH:Thanks!!!Moore possessed a mysterious style of illustration which suited typically to the character of Phantom.
MCcoy was Moore's assistant who later took the job after his death,MCcoy initially followed Moore's steps but later developed his own different style.
I might be rendering a article on these legendary Phantom artists along with some of the rare photographs of Ray Moore which are difficult to find otherwise.
#Panda:Welcome to CW..panda ji Frew never published a color comic till date...hope Sagnik can color and ink them for you.
#Ciro:Many thanks pal,where is your new drawing!!!
#Col.:Thanks col.,yeah me too planning to post a few non-PM issues.
#Satish:Thanks Satish.Indrajal is a regular feature of this blog but sometime a change is necessary to maintain the taste balanced.Don't worry your choices are very much in pipeline.

Ritesh said...

Congratulations on 50th posting. Very well done job mate. Keep it up !!

SATISH said...

DEAR CW,AGAIN I READ YOUR COMMENT OF GETTING RELAXED.
ITS A WONDERFUL THING THAT ICC HAS SURFACED,MANY BLOGS ARE COMING UP.
BUT CREDIT TO YOU FOR CONTINUOSLY AND CONSISTENTLY SHOWING UP FOR US.
JUST BECAUSE ROBIN/ROHIT/YUVRAJ PLAY FANTASTIC,SHOULD SACHIN BE RESTING?
THEN....
COME ON,I WANT YOU TO STAND UP AND DELIVER AND IMPROVE YOUR FREQUENCY EVEN FURTHER.THESE DAYS EVEN YOUR COMMENTS HAVE NOT BEEN SURFACING REGULARLY.
IAM A TOUCH HARSH BUT FRANK.COME ON,HIT IT FOR A SIX.

Satish said...

Hey everyone,where are your comments?
And CW,almost 3 days without any comment.
Where are you, yaar?
Been missing you.Come on,wake up.

SATISH said...

I GUESS IAM THE ONLY ONE LEFT TO COMMENT.NEVER MIND,I WILL,EVERYDAY.
I WAS HOPING FOR A HAPPY SUNDAY ON THIS BLOG ALL DAY LONG,IN FACT,FOR THE LAST 6 DAYS.
BUT WAS DISAPPOINTED ON ALL COUNTS--NO COMMENTS AND NO COMICS.
ANYWAY,I LOVE CW, SIMPLY FOR WHAT IT IS.BYE.

Chandan said...

Admire you love for CW,Satish.
Actually I also share similar feelings as you.But I guess CW is just busy.
You can call on me at chanreach@yahoo.co.in.

The Phantom Head said...

I might be rendering a article on these legendary Phantom artists along with some of the rare photographs of Ray Moore which are difficult to find otherwise.

CG: anything coming from you is a pure gem and always eagerly awaited. Keep it up and yes, I am in wait for my prize post. :-)

Indrajal Comics Club said...

SATISH said...

Dear CW,where are you?Please come back fast.This is my earnest request.
The very comment of ICC sends shivers through my spine.Hope you understand.

Satish said...

Hey,What's up?
Where are you?

Anyway,just called on to say a Hi.

Grouchy Smurf said...

Thanks

Comic Guy said...

#Ritesh:Thanks buddy.
#Satish:Thanks pal but don't compare me with Sacin as Sachin is now having counted days left in Indian Squad.
Compare me with some other long lasting player;o)
#TPH:Your prize post will be coming very soon.
#ICC:Not planning to disappear but rather to concentrate on my other love but lets see if i can realy switch over.
#Satish:Thanks for your concern but you need not to worry as presently there are lots of blog delivering Indrajals/Strips fast and thick.
#GS:Will be going through your blog too soon.

Satish said...

I didn't mention other blogs,dear CW.If you want to switch over,fine but no excuses.
And if its comics,don't worry I won't beg of you anymore.iam sorry I gave you enough trouble.
But as some respect for me as a viewer,since I really felt for you,I would love my choice of the following on your blog ie if you can,no pressure from me:
1--GANG OF IMPOSTERS---BAHADUR
2--THE RIVER OF FIRE--PHANTOM
3--THE SCORPIA GANG--PHANTOM

But think twice before your switch.
After all,all marriages are not love marriages.And you are a person whom everyone will miss.So.......I hope you understand.I was expecting something good,in turn I get this news of 'change of events'from you.
Can,t digest it,Sorry.

frank said...

Indrajal Comics Club said...

Comic Guy said...

#Satish:Thanks for your kind word but don't use any word of sort "begging".Its my pleasure that i was able to spread some joy to all of you.
Your support is over whelming and it prevents me from being far away.I hope to come back on same track once i returns from my home.
Many thanks for your showers of love.
#Frank:Thanks buddy,returning favour is not at all important.

SATISH said...

I didn't understand'return from home'.Where were you?
Iam glad I could put some sense into you.You deserved it.
Now just tell me one thing,which favour are you going to do first and when?Iam really very serious because you kept us waiting for 10 long days.
1/FREWS--PANDA
2/MISSING PRINCE---CHANDAN
3/NOT SPECIFIED---TPH
4/SATISH'S(MINE) REQUEST(YOU KNOW WHICH)
PLEASE REPLY,DEAR CW.IAM WAITING.
THANKS AND SORRY FOR BEING A LITTLE HARSH.I PROMISE NOT TO USE THE WORD'BEG' ANYMORE.

The Phantom Head said...

CG: Please come back soon. Something seems to be missing in your absence.

Desh said...

Great Job,
I feel the same happiness here as I had thiry years ago reading fresh indrajal comics.
You bring sunshine to the life.

By the way i read a Deewana strip on your blog ( in feb. blog ).
Motu patlu and ghaseeta ram were the funniest charecters. I wonder who created them. Can you give a lot of MOtu patlu comics and also information on their creator.

thanks again

deshdeepak

Comic Guy said...

#Satish:Let me come back from my home town trip.
#TPH:Thanks for you concern,will be soon coming back.
#Desh:Thanks,welcome to the blog.Deewna was published by Tej Weekly and was a very good humourous magazine.The character motu-patlu was created by Kripa Shankar Bhrdwaj and they were a regular feature of the magazine Lotpot and Deewana.

The Phantom Head said...

Satish said...

kahan hei raunak-e-mehfil sab dhoodhte hein..... (Heena RK song)

The Phantom Head said...

Hi CW, are you in/ from Lucknow? read in ICC blog about you buying comics there. I used to purchase a lot of comics from Hobby Corner in Janpath, Hazratganj there over 15 years back there, when I used to live in Lko.

Will be grateful if you could post Scorpia Gang 1 & 2 or/and River of Fire 1 & 2. Also requested by your reader Satish. Kind regards, Raman
