#Comic No.98:The Phantom's Wrath

Last couple of weeks were too disturbing and agonizing for every Indian,there is a lot to say,there is a lot to ask and there is a lot to do also.Since its a comic blog hence won't feel appropriate to discuss over these issues here.
Anyway enjoy this Phantom comic which is Indrajal version of Sunday No.54,The River Gang spanning from 10-1-60 to 22-05-60.Scans are from Ajay,hence all thanks goes to him.I haven't checked about the status of this comic on net,if it happen to be posted already then it can be considered as a mirror post.

Download comic

Friends from the below posted covers of Phantom Indrajal,which one you think is the most appealing,attractive and dynamic.Please choose the best cover of your choice among these covers in the poll provided at the left side of the blog page.


Few days back while rearranging and sorting out Indrajal comics of my collection,clicked these snaps.Hope they are worth watching......

After English Indrajals enjoy Hindi Indrajals also.................

Great collection,congrets

adibud34 said...

Great Collection CW! Also the Jade Palace is the best looking cover for sure!!!

Colonel Worobu said...

Breathtaking collection!

I like the shining city cover best followed by jade palace :o)

Deb said...

Thanks for the post, CW & Ajay.

An armed raid at your place is in order. Great collection, friend. Congratulations! Hope to see them posted soon.

I think the best cover is the Vacul Castle followed by the Slave Traders. A larger than life Phantom lends it a unique aura.

a trasure for which i am ready to commit crime of theft..

am i allowed...

The Phantom Head said...

My vote goes to Shining City among these. Protector is also very colourful and attractive and I would have certainly gone that way if I were 10 year old today. But I always liked Shehab's IJC covers better, 'cause those are related to my earlier memories. The way he sketched various indrajal characters (including some less popular one) was very good and covers were always related to the story line in such a way to portray the correct idea of the events.

[b]OUCH!![/b] It hurts, I really miss them. :)

Our Envy your pride.

Prabhat's Books and Comics said...

Hello CW!
Pls eliminate following two also:

400 1982 Phantom Abode of the Ghosts Part I
401 1982 Phantom Abode of the Ghosts Part II

These are under scanning too.

Rafiq Raja said...

Dear CG, Been visiting your site after a long time, and your collection is incredible, to say least. Should definitely plan to visit you sometime, for atleast taking the pleasure of having looked at your collection.

By the way, my vote is undoubtedly for the Jade Palace. The macho Phantom look, with the girl on shoulders, could you ask for anything more.

Pity though, that I only hold the Phantom Protector issue with my collection :(

Carry on with your Great Work. I will be visiting often hereafter. :)

Toonfactory said...

Hey CW/Gomics-Guy, I have been a regular visitor to your blog...Its really great to see your Indrajaal Collection..Well I used to have a massive collection myself but lost most of my comics while shifting to a new cities every 2 or 3 years as and when Dad got transferred..
Though I am yet to download comics and adapt myself to read them on CBR (I am an old school-er who still loves to turn pages rather hitting page up/down while reading)...
I remember you commented on one of my posts on Relatively Unknown Comic Books Heroes...I need your help on Aditya's Indrajal Comics, can you please help me out?
BTW have started a new blog on Indian are most welcome to visit and comment :)

Comic World said...

Anon.,Anurag: Welcome

Comic World said...

Toonfactory: Thanks for praiseworthy words.Its unfortunate to know about your collection,but its a common story as when we were child,we were not able to understand the importance of these comics and didn't bothered to preserve them and now we miss them.
Me too doesn't like to read comics on monitor,thats why i started to collect them in hard copies.
I would love to render any help which i can provide for your blog in any way.Pls let me know how can i help in any way.

Toonfactory said...

Hi CW, thanks. I am working on a segment on lesser known Comic Book Heroes in Indian Comics and I will need comics (I know I can get them in Digital Format only) of Dara & Aditya. Have U posted them on ur blog? or d'u have scanned images of these comics??? Do let me know.
You can mail me on -

PS. Chitrakathaa is a blog which is actually a journal to record the making of Chitrakathaa- The Documentary Film. Do visit :)

Comic World said...

Toonfactory: I am having all published Indrajal comics above issue # 300,few Dara/Aditya comics were posted at other blogs.Let me know which Dara/Aditya comics you need in soft copy,so that i can scan them.

Silly Boy. said...

Could not browse inter-net for a long time and so saw your Inderjal collection just now. Fantastic. Busy with life in the meantime though got some 20 old comics. In one of your comments to Toonfactory you mentioned about Bhardawaji's ventures with Manoj Comics & Raj Comics. Please tell the names of characters which he created for those comics. Please also share with me some information about Yahoo magazine. If you have one please post the cover of at least one becuase I never come across anyone. I am desparate to see one. I have come across a collection of old Tarzon novels. Though they are novels but their cover is very attractive. Should I buy them. I want your opinion. Do you remember Target? Do you have some old Target comics. If you have please post that "musical donkey."

Comic World said...

Silly Boy: Thanks.Congrats on getting some old stuff.Well,i don't remember exactly the name of characters drawn by KSB for Manoj and Raj comics but i remember reading few of those comics drawn by KSB at MCK and RCK.
Yahoo magazine was a sequel of Deewana type comics but they also didn't sustained for a long.I do have a copy of Yahoo which i purchased recently,will be searching it in my heap of comics and will be posting subsequently.
Tarzan novels do have a attractive paint like cover design,you can take them if you have some interest in good covers too irrespective of book format.Though nowdays finding time and patience to complete a novel is getting extinct but there was a time also when i use to finish at least 3 novels of more than 200 pages in a day.
I can recall a faint memory of Target comics though have never read any.If you have any hard copy of Target then can scan and share it.

you rock man !! its like a lost treasure which i was missing !

Dr. Gaurav Arya said...

Dr.Gaurav Arya: Thanks and welcome Dr.Sb.I will try to post Hindi IJC as well.
