More Covers

Friends just returned from my hometown visit,really enjoyed the vacations a lot...got many comics in my comic hunt in interim which consists of not many Indrajal but other comics such as Madhumuskans,Manoj comics etc.
This time came across with many of lesser known comics, which initially i thought to leave but purchased them finally for the sake of information of those comics for Anupam's site (Anupam pls contact for the information). The cover scans of few of them am putting here for visitors,later will also be putting full comics.

Dear Comic World.
I am regular visitor of your blog. You are doing a fantastic job. Keep it up. I have also a great collection of old comics but they are nothing in comparison to your collection.
What would be cost of old Diwana editions as I have come a collection of 100 old Diwana and he is asked Rs. 8/- per piece. Is it o.k. or expensive. Issues are from 70s.

Comic World said...

Abdul: A very happy Diwali to you also friend.Yeah,surely i am looking to post more Madhumuskans.Pls keep coming.

Comic World said...

Silly(wise) Boy: Dear buddy,thanks for such nice comments.I would love to hear more about your collection and comic love,pls feel free to share about it.
Well,it depends upon your choice and liking of Deewana to decide its cost,if you are a hardcore Deewana lover than you will find Rs.8/- per copy a pretty decent price.
As far as my personal opinion is concerned Rs.5/- per copy would be a quite reasonable price.

Dear Comic World
Thanks for replying my comment. I highly appreciate your effort for running this blog. It is your blog which re-kindles my love for comics. I used to read a lot a comics in my childhood and teen-age. Almost all of them were borrowed by me on rent (due to lack of pocket money) and so I did not able to have a collection of the same. When I was in my 9th standard ( in 1991) due to my family circumstances I had to leave my passion of comic reading as I did not have enough money for taking the comics even on rent. Then when I got job and was able to buy them the comic industry was dying and I could find only sub-standard comics. For many years in deep of mind I was dying to read these gems and re-live my past but somehow it was not happening. I am not well-conversent with net and it was only last year that I used net for the first time. The first thing I searched in the net was Indrajal Comics and in the process I visited your blog which as I said re-kindles my love or in fact passion for comics. I read your blog. But that was not enough what I wanted I wanted to read them in physical form. I tried to search but so far with little success. I have got about 100 Indrajal Comics( most of them you have posted on your blog) 4 diwanas, around 100 acks, some Lotpots of 70s, some old tinkes( not the new lifeless ones), some sun comics, Madhu Muskan comics, kiran comics and star comics. Some Madhu Muskan I have also got around 100 diamons comics ( most of them newer ones not the great old ones), 50 raj comics, 40 odd Manoj comics ( again the lifeless new ones) and 30 odd other substandard Comics (Tulsi, Parampara etc.)
I am still searching for those old big size Manoj Comics, old Diamond Comics, IJCs, ACKs, Diwana, Chitra Bharti,Madhu Muskan, Lot Pot, old Nutan Comics and Prabhat Comics and Parag along-wtih Illustrated Weekly of India,Dharamyug and Saptahik Hindustan.
Do you live in Delhi. Can you tell the places where I can hunt for these old gems. Do you some spare issues which you can give to me.
Thanks for reading such a long comment. I always gives me happiness to connect to like-minded people.

Wise Boy: Thanks for sharing up your comic reading history with us.
Its always a joy to read fellow comic lovers comical 'debut'.Mine history is very much similar to you as initially i also use to rent these comics due to inability of buying them 'coz of stiff financial conditions,though occasionally i was able to buy the old issues at half the cover price rate,but that also after toiling too hard to save the required amount of money(go through this link to read my story).
I was lucky enough to at least enjoy some of the golden period of Indian comic industry(from early '80s to 90),those were the days when TV was just introduced but was not so popular because of poor reception and lack of other technical infrastructure.
I can still recall the joy which i use to feel while holding a Indrajal,ACK,Madhumuskan,Parag,
Diamond or any other comics for the very first time.I use to hold the comic like a new born baby..holding it without folding it into two and turning each page with delicacy and fragility.A crease in the cover page and any wear use to worry me much and over this issue many a times i had a fight with my not so sophisticated siblings who use to handle comics roughly.
The smell emanating from pages of old comics still produces a toxic effect on my mind.One of my favorite pastime is to sort and rearrange my comics at regular intervals,i just love to view the covers of old Indrajals,ACKs,Madhumuskans..
You have got a nice collection which will increase with due course of time if you are passionate with comic collection.
Before i started collecting comics seriously i was having only around 70+ Indrajal comics but at present my collection comprises of 700+ Indrajals,around 300 ACK,200+ Manoj Chitra Kathas(old ones),around 100+ tinkles(old),200+ Tulsi,Chitra Bharti,Madhumuskans combined and many other uncounted comics along with considerable amount of spares too.
A year back i was focused only on Indrajal comics and normally use to leave behind any other comics which i use to came across but from 3,4 month,now i use to pick whatever old comic i came across.
I would be pleased to help you in building up your collection,for more details of it pls mail me at comik.world@gmail.com

Hi CW,

Once again a great pleasure to visit the site. As always I was away from blogs and only today I sit on the PC to explore the works I have missed in the last weeks.

Great treasure you have collected Buddy. Due to some tech reason I was not able to complete the site, though it has been in a good shape to upload for the starter, though I would add more and then would like to upload.

About the covers, Adarsh Chitra katha and Atul Comics are new to me, as a favour can you upload that Atul Chitrakatha as it looks kind of interesting.

Bye Buddy.

HAPPY DIWALI, I know I am late as always...

Anupam said...

...इस बार जो शुरू में मैं छोड़ने के लिए सोचा था, लेकिन अंत में अनुपम है साइट के लिए उन कॉमिक्स की जानकारी के लिये इस जानकारी के लिए (अनुपम pls से संपर्क करें) उन्हें खरीदा कम ज्ञात कॉमिक्स, के कई के साथ भर में आया है...

Ha ha ha, Nice Translation...

Comic World said...

Anupam: Thanks for the Diwali wishes,hope the same for you too.
The posted cover scan of Atul comics is the very first issue of the series,the story line is similar to Tantri-Mantri of Tinkle where the courtier was always busy in hatching plan to overthrow the king and occupy his place,but due to funny circumstances never did succeeded.
Sure,will be scanning and uploading the comic soon.

Comic World said...

Anupam: Google translation is really funny.I wonder what purpose it is fulfilling.

Anupam said...

Dear Pal,
Waiting eagerly to read the comics, and if possible I would post comics very soon...

Have a nice time...

I wonder what purpose it is fulfilling.
It is providing us the great comic fun, which is missing from the Tube, with all the showering eyes...

Comic World said...

Anupam: Yeah,me too waiting eagerly to see a comic post at your blog.You are the only blogger who thinks to post the lesser known comics also apart from our favorite Indrajals.
Previously i also use to take only Indrajal whenever i could come across,but from recent past, inspired by you now i use to pick up any old,rare comic which i can get as its very clear that with due course of time the chances of seeing these old,rare comics are getting diminished only,hence its better to preserve them digitally whenever we can.
