Manoj Chitra Katha Covers

Manoj Chitra Katha were also my childhood favorite apart from Indrajal Comics,i remember very well how i wait for the new set of MCK's to arrive and use to hire the entire set,which comprises of initially 4 then 6 and ultimately 8 comics.
Popular character of MCK were Ram-Rahim,Mahabali Shera,Kala Pret ,historical and King/Queens stories,its popular artists were Pratap Mulick,Dilip Kadam,Bedi,Harvindra Mankad,P.Bandodkar etc.
Later with the arrival of Raj Comics they faced a tough competition and ultimately were left behind due to superior printing/page technology and better pool of writers of Raj Comics.
Manoj Chitra Katha still form a major portion of comic nostalgia and will remain etched in memory forever...!

Prabhat's Books&Comics said...

It's nice to see you in action. I also liked to read these.

chandan said...

these are mouthwatering comics,CW...in fact after indrajals...,ACK'S,MSK'S and TINKLE form my interest of the books.Pretty childish,ain't I?Sometimes all day i think of only books.

Comic World said...

Prabhat: You are welcome Prabhat.

Comic World said...

Chandan: Same here...thinking about books is not childish rather its passionate.

chandan said...

iam telling you,there were days when 100's of MCK'S were lying sprawled in the shop but unfortunately i used to get a chance of picking just one/two since that time i remember even 4rs(way back in 1990...when i was in my teens and in 10th std)was a lot of money.I always thought someday when i grew old,i wud get a chance to visit and buy all the books i wanted but unfortunately before i realised it ,MCK had stopped publication.Although iam a poor reader of Hindi,i still used to love these,stories were exquisite and pictures fantastic.
In fact Indrajals and MCK's i feel were comics,reading which u cud literally feel as if the action was happening around you.

Bhai, you are forcing me to go into my childhood.....

i just loved these comics... do you have any of these comics. if yes, they please put them yaar....

i know this forum is for Indrajal comics only though we have diverted from this and got some other famous indrajal comics character comics too.

may be you can put them on some other blog and give us the link....

Ram-Rahim and Kala Pret were my favourites...i used to read Lotpot, Madhumuskan, Fauladi Singh, Taauji, chacha chaudhri, billo, pinki, raman as well...

i have just one request with all of you....

does any one have that series of Fauladi Singh comics where one by one Fauladi Singh, Lumboo, Bharat, and antarikshak revolt and rest used to fight him and bring him back in normal condition by brainwashing them, i think one of them was with the title "Antariksh mein Mahasangram"....

i also have some fascination now, for one strip which i did not like when i was kid. i think all of you remember a comic strip in Madhumuskan where some people have lost the way and got astray and then they get separated as well. then at one incidence they one of the guy reaches a very shallow sea, almost 2 feet deep but still a sea because there is no end to it....the memory of that scene itself pulls me and i just want to go such place. i am an aeronautical engineer and now sky, planets, stars, galaxy, attracts me but at the same time, sea and its mysteries too attract me..
i think you people remember one Rip Kirbi comics when he gets trapped in one of the sea region where there are very thick sea grass spread in miles and you can even walk on them without sinking though you can feel the waves beneath.
then rip kirbi reaches one abandoned ship and there were some actions.
i just dont know why sea fascinates me now though i being an aeronautical engineer i should be interested in space and galaxies...
any body, having these comics please mail me the links...at

Comic World said...

Md.: Its good to see that there are MCK lovers too...yeah,indeed these were also very popular at a time with the characters liking of Ram-Rahim and Kala Pret(Inspired by our Phantom and Batman.
I very well remeber that comic of Fauladi Singh which you mentioned here..i will try to find that particular comic and will subsequently post it.
Lotpot,Madhumuskan,Chacha Chaudhry,Tauji,Lambu-Motu,Billoo,
Pinki were also my favorites.

Comic World said...

Varun: I do have a considerable amount of MCKs,hope i could post them subsequently.

I had nearly 2000 comics among which there were nearly 150 comics of both Ram-Rahim and Crookbond all in brand new condition. I had every single issue out. All were damn classics with superb storyline. Lots of efforts were put in in these comics as compared to stupid stories in today's comics.

Anonymous said...

Ram-Rahim's Dracula series creates the nostalgia in my mind. Does anybody remember the mega comix by MCK - Khooni Danav & Lal Ghaati ka Rahasya. Thanks a lot in advance for the people who can post these comics so that we can relive our past in todays cut throat life.

Fauladi Singh's - Bharat waali series was excellent. Would luv to read them again

Comic World said...

Anon: Your collection is really amazing...if you could contribute scans of the comics of your collection then it could really be a boon for MCK lovers.

Comic World said...

Anon: I remember very well those giant size comics,especially their covers and coloring.I hope any body could provide the scans or i may be able to find them someday at old book shops.
Also,if you could pls leave a name then it would be better.
Anon: I think i have some of Fauladi Singh comics at home,will have to search them.

hariom said...

How to download these comics ???
these r only the

Comic World said...

Kuldeep: Dear Kuldeep you are most welcome here,its nice to meet a fellow comic fan especially of Hindi comics.
It seems you have deep interest in comic and its background too.
Yeah,Vimal Chatterji,who was popular for his thriller novels that time was invited by Manoj Chitra Katha to write for them and soon his stories were instant hit,his characters Ram-Rahim were the favorites among kids,along with other characters too.
Fauladi Singh stories were also too good along with its illustrations.Later on it suffered a setback due to lack of novel ideas.
It would be great if you could contribute scans of your collection here for all comic lovers.
For more details and further discussions over comics pls mail me at comik.world@gmail.com

Krish said...

Thanks to google and internet in a nutshell....I just felt like finding out about manoj chitra katha which still sometimes knock on my mind from my acquaintance in it through easy time pass during summer holidays in mid 80's era (my secondary school days)....amongst others are Indrajal comics - phantom, mandrake, bahadur, rip kirby ; Tintin, asterix, amar chitra katha, raj comics, lotpot, champak, chandamama, tinkle...I dont know if they even exist today as I dont see interest in them in our present generation school going kids .Truely times have changed with internet , mobile and telecom world.

Comic World said...

Krish: Out of your mentioned comics only Amar Chitra Katha,Champak,Tintin,Raj comics and Tinkles still do exist today.
