Sunday is Onam and so Happy Onam to everyone. To the uninitiated, a little background on the festival - thanks to Wikipedia and other sources.

Onam (Malayalamഓണം) is a festival celebrated by the people of the state of Kerala (where I hail from) in India.  It is also the State Festival of Kerala.
The festival falls during the Malayalam month of Chingam (Aug - Sep) and marks the commemoration of the 17th incarnation of Lord MahaVishnu namely Vamana (dwarf) and the subsequent homecoming of the mythical King Mahabali (lovingly called Maveli by Malayalees), who Malayalees consider as the ideal King. In Kerala, it is the festival celebrated with a variety of cultural elements such as Vallam Kali (boat race), Pulikkali (tiger dance), Pookkalam (decoration with flowers), Onathappan, Kazhchakkula,
Atthachamayam etc. Onam is reminiscent of Kerala's agrarian past, as it is considered to be a harvest festival.
While on the subject of agrarian past and harvest festivals, one cannot but think or talk about conservation and how it affects the indigenous peoples, when conservation is taken to the extreme levels, without a due thought process.
Tarzan, in this daily strip provided by Emile, gives us all a beautiful lesson on conservation, while not putting the life of the tribals in danger.

Courtesy, Emile, we have some Flash Gordon Sunday strips. S176 was the last Sunday strip drawn by Dan Barry (the brother of Sy Barry, who drew the Phantom). S177 was a reprint of an earlier Dan Barry comic strip. S178 thru S188 was drawn by a group of Latin American artists.

Starting with S189, King Features got a new artist Jim Keefe to do the artwork for the Flash Gordon Sunday strips. While remaining faithful to the creation of Alex Raymond, Jim did bring his own touch to the strips.

Here are the original links from Emile:

S189 - Demon From the Dark Dimension - 1996-01-21 to 1996-04-21 - 16

S190 - Nightfall on Mongo - 1996-04-28 to 1996-08-25 - 18

S191 - The Way it Began - 1996-09-01 to 1996-09-29 - 5

S192 - The Return of Ming - 1996-10-06 to 1996-12-22 - 12

S193 - Duroks Revenge - 1996-12-29 to 1997-05-11 - 20

Enjoy the stories and shower your gratitude on Emile.

Courtesy Emile, we have the color reprint of D270, a story called Alibi Algie.

This idea of an identical twin being in a different place at the same time as the perpetrator of a crime was a favorite theme in a few very successful Telugu and Tamil movies. Added to that we also have a Scotland Yard inspector who looks like who else but ...
