IJC # 16 PHANTOM: THE DIAMOND CUP

What a overwhelming response! I never had expected it!
This is purely the love for Indrajals, and the great work uptil now by ICC, MTM, CW, TPH, all comic bloggers and all the IJC lovers!
I am slowly learning this and enjoying the whole stuff!
Pl. let me know which character you would like to see next. I personally prefer Bahadur, and many comics are not posted yet for him!
( after all, Apna hero hai , bhai!)
This is one more "fill in the gaps" sent to me by Chandoba.
Actually, the whole response is surely due to the highlighting by ICC! when a king recommends, its a true recommendation!! Also not to forget, i would like to specially thank Dara, as he helped me from the name itself! CW said when he started, no one helped him, but i had all the help from so many ijc lovers, that i cant even list it out!!
Tommorrow is MAKAR SANKRANTI, so watch out for a special surprise posting!
This is one of my favorite comics, hope you all enjoy it too!!

this is not an original indrajal,, this is a GK version,, thats why i didnt post it earlier... though the story is same, original has been take from Sunday 39, so the artwork is totally different...

anyway, thanks for posting

i was aware it is not an IJC, but since the no. was missing and u had given me the file, I felt atleast ths gap will be filled! can u post the original story? it will be great!

Indrajal Comics Club said...

another thing forgot to tell u...

the same DVD was sent to me by ajay...only few are my scans.. so all the credit goes to ajay, desiguru, prashant, bhoopathy for scanning and vinneth and bhopaqthy for providing them... i'm a drop in the ocean in front of these people...

dont say me a king... i m an ordinary person like most of the people.. the king if any is there, he is TCP only.. who started it all few yrs back... we are only following his footsteps,,,,

i'm not a humble person at all.. but its a plain truth,,,, so please accept it,,,

Indrajal Comics Club said...

no i dont have an original indrajal. nor ajay/vineeth have...
but i can post an original story which is a bw sunday

Indrajal Comics Club said...

one more thing u forgot to add...

please give a link of CW's (and others like dara, GS) blog ,, if u say we are the "legends", then CW deserves the most, as he is a senior to all of us...

The Skull Cave Treasures said...

Well, king is one, who rules the present! ( No. of hits!!)
Iwanted u to post the strip.
I loved the way u said about being humble! haha!!

I always will mention the names of all those who have contributed to the scans! btw, many comics are missing from thescans, so i will now start scanning and posting them from my collection! following are the nos. i found two days back: #43, 55, 76, 102, 103, 154 & 186.not to mention others (around 22, in vol nos.) isnt that great? Now i am thinking of scanning and posting Marathi IJCs as well with an english version how will that be?
any marathi manus reading? pl. comment!

The Skull Cave Treasures said...

Grouchy's Comics said...

I cant believe my eyes. I never felt this good readin the blogs in a very long time.
You are buring the candle at both ends! Not that I complain. Its just that I am worried you might tire a little while later.
Thanks so much.
Please provide a link for the Phantoms Rings as well.
Nice Photo too!

The Skull Cave Treasures said...

Dear Grouchy, I have a real long candle, and it will never stop burning, as i am using solar power!
Thanks for your concer, but i am a never tiring person! I have spent hours from one old bookshop to a raddiwala and back for so many days without getting tired at all! You can ask ICC, he knows it! I started searching for ijcs around 3 monts back, and i am having around 600+ IJs! some are even #43, 32, 55, and a series from #101 to No. 234 continous! The happiness you had is what i have earned today! tht is what real pleasure, watching your friends getting happy! Keep coming!!

It is very nice to learn that you got all comics serialwise 101- 234. pl post of scans front covers which were missing by icc , cw & others. I have already scanned #76 , so pl before you start scanning any comic, you may ask all of us , so that your untiring enery is used for unscanned comics only. If you have # 163 - false will - Mandrake comics , pl scan & post. you can use photoshop also to bring better colors , make the scans better , defects removed, once you use, photoshop after scanning, effects are really great.

And when you scan IJC's please scan the ads as well :o)

Comic World said...

Wow...such a nice collection.Sameer you are the real "Chhupa Rustom".
Sameer at the time when CW was initiated except TCP no other Indrajal blog was there hence from whom i would have expected to get the support!!!TCP was too busy but still if i would have asked personally for help he would have surely helped but i was too shy at that time to ask help from someone in person.
I just raised a general plea of which no resounding did echoed.

Ajay said...

Actually , I request all of blogowner to give their photos on their blogs as done by the skull cave treasure so that at least we all can see them

Hey, this is so cool - a new blog! Fantastic! Thanks a lot! BTW - my favorite character is also Bahadur followed by Mandrake/Phantom.

Krishna said...

Thanks for posting this . I have read this as a child and when I saw this I was zapped. It shows that the mind has these stored somewhere inside. Once again , one of the best comics so far , and good karma to you.

Ruchi said...

I have read an Indrajal version of this story in one of the IJC blogs, also. I think the artwork and editing of Indrajal is unparalleled. The Frews, Diamonds and GKs etc don't even come close. Or it could be that it's my initial childhood impression of IJC that persists even today :-)
In any case thanks for the comic, enjoyed reading it.
