#Comic No.67:MadhuMuskan No.212

Update:The new header is a gift to CW from a friend Comic.Crazy he is such a expert in his work.After a lot of brain storming sessions he finally succeeded in forming the desired format.Many many thanks to him for his superb effort
This time 2 comic features from a Madhumuskan are presented.Madhumuskan was the first super successful comedy series comic of India which tasted a huge success.It was started in 1972 and is still in publication though its charm and attraction are all lost and the old popular features are being republished in a pathetic inferior format and page quality.

Madhumuskan was initially a fortnightly but soon became weekly, its popular features were Popat-Chaupat,Susutram-Chustram,Daddy Ji,Jasoos Bablu,Bhootnath aur Jadui Tulika,Jasoos Chakram aur Chirkut,Kalamdas,Bharat Kumar etc.
Jagdish and Harish M.Sudan were the chief illustrator along with Hussain Zamin who use to draw Jasoos Bablu and Kalamdas.Though all characters enjoyed a great popularity but almost all characters of Jagdish and Daddy Ji by Harish Sudan were the most popular ones.
Jagdish's cartooning ability was simply superb,his cartoons were most simple in appearance capturing maximum of expressions with minimum usage of line strokes.
Later when Madhumuskan was on its decline he joined Manoj Chitra katha and drew for them for quite a some time but his characters there could not match the success with those which he created for Madhumuskan.Nothing has been heard about him from quite a long time,if anybody is having any sort of information about his present projects/status please do share with us as i am eager to know about his current status.
This is a early issue of Madhumuskan when it was not colored.Madhumuskan is also among one of those comics which you can read and enjoy at any stage of time and age.

I had a chance to take a sneak peak at your logo. Its terrific. Comic crazee is also responsible for the logo in my blog.
Yes CC has quite a talent.

Havent read Madhumuskan before. Will try and do so now.

The Phantom Head said...

I have no doubt CC is a professional. It is very difficult for any amateur to produce this quality. Congratulations.

Madhumuskan is one of the favourite childhood comic. My elder brother used to bring both Indrajal and MM together and I always got to read the MM first as the fight for indrajal reading first was always settled in his favour. I even remember the first time I read this funny comic. I think it was 78 or 80. It was 2 or 3 day before the deewali festival and just when I decided to help (read disturb) others in preparations, I was given a copy of this fabulous magazine with instructions not to come back for at least 2 hours. So, nice nostalgia with this comic as well.

The quality of humour in MM was good. jagdish was the best and original. I feel harish m sudan was inspired by some foreign characters in drawing daddy ji. Hussain Jamin's drawings were excellent. He drew filmy characters with sharpness.

Thanks CW for this one.

Comic World said...

ICC: If you read MM before then you will certainly like them.Yeah,many thanks and hats off to CC for this fabulous work.
Vitesh: You are most welcome with best wishes for a very happy new year.
Bahadur: Rightly appreciated.All credit goes to CC.
GC: Try it and i am quite sure you will certainly like them.
TPH Yeah,rightly pointed out the qualities of these illustrators.
Your memory is sharp as at least you remember which comic when you read for the 1st time,not alike me who can't recall when he really came across with these milestones of reading culture.

Frank said...

thanks for the comic. but this is not the full comic! can u plz. post the full comic?

Comic World said...

Frank: Full comic was not posted as i am not sure whether it will be of readers interest or not as the other portion consists of textual stories,news column plus few other comic features but in parts.

Frank said...

@comic world: u can mail me the full copy if u have scanned it all. ( that is if u dont want to post it here)

Comic World said...

You can enquire about its status from the following address:
Gulab House,A-143,Mayapuri,

Abdul S said...
