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.

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 Weeks.zip

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

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

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

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


Enjoy the stories and shower your gratitude on Emile.

Oh and one other thing. One of my friends Steve Cottle has a KickStart project to get a new high speed scanner to help with the scanning. many of us have downloaded comics from his website. Now it is our chance to open up our hearts and, more importantly, our wallets and help him hit the target by June 7, 2014.

Here is his website , where you can get more details of the project and also make your pledge - http://www.ilovecomixarchive.com/. Contact him directly for any details, if you have questions.

Emile has been sending Hi-Res versions of some of the Phantom and Mandrake strips already available in lower resolution.

I was indisposed for a while and so am a bit late in sharing these with you. Here are 5 of the strips. By mistake I had deleted the previous links for 194 & 195. So I am giving new links. 193 seems to be incomplete, missing a strip.
