Here is the latest Sunday strip called The Iceman, that just concluded this Sunday. Emile, put together this one quite quickly, but I was a bit busy and was not able to post this one immediately.

Diana is missing from this story which is of a father spending quality time with his kids while solving a robbery that happened during the time of the 14th Phantom. The last panel in this story is also a commentary on this generation with older parents.

Download the story here and shower your thanks on Emile.

A couple of posts ago, I had mentioned how my friend Ajnaabi is synonymous with sharing of Tarzan comic books on the Net.

I am presenting here two Tarzan comic books from Kiran Publications (India). The first one is No 46. See cover below:


This contains the story "King Al Famin" followed by "Tarzan And The Magic Palace"

The second comic book is No 49. See cover below:


This contains the story "Tarzan And The Valley Of Death"

Though both comic books are complete, both suffer from "Binder's Surgery". You will know what I mean when you read the books.

BTW, Ajnaabi, if you are visiting this blog, please do come back to scanning and posting

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.

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.

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.
