In these two years much has been changed,with the advent of numerous contributors the quota of 803 Indrajal comics is going to be depleted soon and all Indrajal comics will be available online,which is satisfying and encouraging as after that the platform for discussion on comics will be more solid and wide.Mere comic posting was not my only preference,rather healthy,worthy and thick comic discussions do attract me more,thats why my posting frequency was not very quick as i use to post only when i do have something to tell/discuss over that particular comic/post.
When this blog was started i was having only odd 75+ Indrajal comics along with few other old comic such as Manoj Chitra Katha,Superman etc,but within these 2 years i was able to build up a sizeable collection which currently comprises of Indrajals,Amar Chitra Katha,Tinkles,Manoj Chitra Katha,Madhumuskans,Deewanas,Tulsi Comics,Star comics,Frews,Gold keys and many other comics.In my house comics are lying everywere...in the book shelf purchased specially for comics,over the book shelf,stuffed in couple of bags as well as on my computer table also.
For me the beginning of 2009 has been proved quite productive regarding comics,as within January itself i got lots of comics consisting of many of my missing Indrajals as well as other comics such as Amar Chitra Kathas and other lesser known comics,which i took intentionally for the purpose of gathering information for Anupam's comic encyclopedia project.
Well,for this special anniversary post its kept in mind to satisfy the likes of the majority of comic lovers,and for that a variety of comics are being presented.
Starting with our favorite Indrajal comics,this particular issue "The Valley Of Living Dead" (Vol.20.No.49) is actually the reprint version of Indrajal No.19,"Moogoo's Dolls",which itself is the comic version of Sunday strip No.21 "The Haunted Castle" (12-09-1948 to 13-02-1949). Ardent Phantom enthusiast can easily find out that this strip actually is the combined work of two illustrator,namely Moore and MCcoy.The first two pages were illustrated by Moore whereas rest strip was taken up by MCcoy.
