Thanks Buddy...

Thanks Buddy for posting these gems. I remember Bal Bharti. It used to publich this one comic called Kapish at the end of the magazine. Though Bal Bharti is still in publication but its contents are not as attractive as they used to be. Kapish also appeared in Tinkle Digest though for certain strange reasons it was never published in mainstream magazine. Some other magazines which are mainly of text matters also carried such features notably Nanhe Samrat which along with JJB of Sukhwant also carried his Murkhistan which is also very hillarous somewhat on the line of features of Diwana. It is still in publication and reminds me of old golden days. Its contents nowadays are 70% similar to its old contents. Nowadays it is also publishing a feature called Darubaz which is illustrated by Native ( of Mundu Khayali Ram of MM, Paropkariji of Diwana fame). It was a very pleasant surprise for me when I came across feastures of these vintage illustrators in the most recent issue of Nanhe Samrat.(September 2008). If you can please see them.

While giving introduction of Native I forgot the mention the name if its most popular character i.e. hold your breath Daku Paan Singh of MM. (Though sometimes one Murli also illustrated it. I do not know whether Murli and Native are one or two different persons.

Ashish: Since i m forced bachelor now days hence finding more time to devote in posting,thats why the posting frequency has increased.:o)

Comic World said...

Deb: Welcome Deb.

Comic World said...

Wise Boy: Thanks for nice informative comments.Though Bal Bharti was never among the main stream popular children magazines.i.e.Nandan,Parag,
Chandamama
etc,but still it holds a place of its own in comic history.
The only comics article published in Bal Bharti wiz:Kapish was similar to the Kaliya Kaowa of Tinkle,hence it was not encouraged to publish two similar them article in same magazine.
Yeah,Nanhe Samrat also used to fascinate me since its inception because of Murkhistan,JJB and other comic articles.
Murli was the illustrator of Daku Paan Singh and other small comic features,i.e.Mundu Khyaliraam and Paropkari Ji.Previously in these articles the name 'Murli' was credited for illustrations and if now 'Native' is being credited then i m sure both are the same person.

Abdul: Welcome pal.

WOW!!Kapish!!This sweet-monkey used to appear in our Bengali Puji Specials,in '90s! Nice 2 see another story of this...:)
And that Phantom is awesome allthough I always thot the ending cud be MORE dramatic/complex rather than d simple way it was shown!

Dara: If this story is compared to other Falk stories then it seems to be somewhat lesser,it support some kind of superstition too,and overall Phantom doesn't have the main protagonist 'role' in the story.
But overall it is worth to read as it was generated from Falk's pen.
Can you name/discuss on those such stories from Falk's pen which you didn't liked much.!!!

Comic World said...

Col.Worobu: Welcome Col.Yeah,i need a bit of inspiration/free time to carry on with regular posting and now i am getting that as i am a forced bachelor nowdays ;o)

Comic World said...

Ravi Gokhle Thanks and Welcome Dr.Sahib.Rightly said those early strips primarily from Moore's brush are real classics.
By the way looking for more nostalgic inputs from you.:o)

The best way to enjoy forced bachelorhood is to commit some unforced errors. ;-)

Searching for the old CW with lots of great IJC scans. What's is cooking for the 100th?

Comic World said...

TPH: Yeah,i am rightly reviving my 'lost' bachelorhood also along with the lost childhood...;o)
Shaping up the ideas for the 100th comic.....

Colonel Worobu said...

I also want to thank Ajay for these scans.

CW: Breathe the free air & enjoy your bachelorhood my friend :o)

Diwant Vaidya said...

Yea Kapish! I have a few of the Raj Comics comics also, and while in Hyderabad I had a roommate who was a veritable encyclopedia on Nagaraj, Super Commando Dhruva, etc.

Comic World said...

Diwant Vaidya: Welcome Diwant.
