It is really a thrill when you hit upon the very first strip of any classic comic strip. I have had the good fortune of having the digital version of strips like Mandrake, Phantom, Rip Kirby and many others.

I am presenting here the full run of the first ever Garth story. I am sure Dr. Ramesh Bagwani will also be very happy. Like Ajay is synonymous with Frew Comics on the Net, Dr.Bagwani is the name that comes foremost with the sharing of Garth comics.

These were taken from PDF versions of the old pages of the original newspaper in which they appear. Don Freeman, Steve Dowling and John Allard collaborated in this story.

Here is the first strip in the story:








This is quite a big story containing 197 strips. You can download the story here and probably reduce the size if you wish.

Enjoy,

For those among us who know only Dhoni and gang and probably heard of Tendulkar (god of cricket), there was a cricketer, who reigned the World of Test Cricket from the early seventies to the early eighties. He came to the cricket scene with a bang in 1971, scoring 774 runs in 5 Tests (didn't bat in one innings to add to the greatness) against the mighty West Indies, which included 2 double centuries against the likes of Wesley Hall, Charles Griffith, Gary Sobers et al.

That year was a change in Indian cricket, when India moved from an also-ran to become a leading nation, when in 1971, they followed up a marvelous victory in the Windies, with a win over England in the same year.

This cricketer, soon became a superstar. What announces the arrival of a superstar better than a comic book series depicting him as the hero. Remember the Supremo series based on Amitabh. Well this cricketer had a comic book series named after him - SUNNY - and I have great pleasure to present here the first issue. Unfortunately I am missing the cover and so I do not know the name of the story.

Download the comic here.

If someone among you knows more about the series, please do let us all know more by commenting.

Though there is mention of the next one in the series, If I had been the cricketer, I would have stopped any further stories in the series.

But it is fun to identify some of the Indian cricketers of those times who also are depicted in the story. As also Raj.

Enjoy,

Here is yet another colorful creation by the same Phan whose colorful creation was shared by me in my last post. Only this time he is using a new nick name - PERTH.

The story is D195 - Terror At The Opera. Many of us may be having the Black and white version, but not everyone has the colored version. He has even put forth a kind of a colorful cover for the book-style presentation of the story.






















So download the comic from his original link here, and shower your thanks to PERTH.

This might be my last post in a while, as I start my journey this Thursday.

Emile just sent me the latest Phantom Sunday story that ran for 25 weeks from June 01, 2014 through November 23, 2014. Here is the first panel :















Download the story from Emile's original link and shower your thanks on Emile.



While on the subject of the Phantom, I bring to you a colored Frew comic by one of our regular Phans who goes by the nickname KALL. When I first posted that in this blog, quite a few blogs including this one were hit by an expired widget, which would prevent others from viewing the blog unless they had a very secure version of the browsers they were using. Since this was something that requires a lot of hard work and patience (ask TPH), I thought it was worth a repost.





















So download from Kall's original link and offer your thanks to Kall.

Before I take leave of you all, here is a post about the new Mandrake comic soon to be brought out by Dynamite Comics. Take a look at the following:

This might be my last post for a while, as I will be away for a month. I will be back during the end of January.
