Can You Imagine IT ??

Hi all, this time I am back very quickly!And with a craziest thought having from last 3/4 years!!

Any guess?? No,it's NOT possible to guess,I think....
It's about a Return,a Re-live of our passion,our nostalgia.......
Indrajal Comics!!

After having some debate,and specially after read some other Phantom/Mandrake/Flash Gordon publications,I'm now sure for one thing...... Indrajal Comics was/is/will remain the BEST among all other sources of these heroes! And it's NOT about only the cover-story,but all those fun-filled cartoons,like Henry aka Gundhar,Chimpoo,Little king n many more,later Timpa introduced as a side-story and regularly featured in 1988-89.Just before the cancellation,they introduced Agent 000 - a single-page funny detective comics with Tinkle's Quiz. Beside these,IJC helped readers knowledge/interests immensely by Ripleys,Capri's strange-yet-exciting info on various creatures, History of World etc........ even solely those Poppins/Gems /Gold spot/various ads those remind you those lost era that only can be cherished!I never mind if original comics finished within 23/24 pages and rest pages filled with those time-less gems! :-))
Tell me, is/was there any OTHER comic-publication that serves in this way?? Indrajal was really unique!!
Moreover,IJC had published probably the BEST part of these 3 heroes with the series of hamara super-heroes like Bahadur and lately Dara.

Personally,I'm so crazy about this series that, I wish whenever Indrajal will be re-lived (if so...),they should start with it's latest format of 36-page,the same banner style and MORE OVER from the Vol. No. they left.....
You might know,the LAST IJC was a Dara one, published as Vol.27 No.8 on 15 April,1990. So,next should be Vol 27 No.9 and from 1st May of some of the upcoming years!! :))

I know,It's a complete crazy idea....feel free to call me mad or so.....BUT fact is, people who know me personally,will NOT be surprised by this ;-) as this is just the way I think,I dream,I talk OR in short I do everything!
So,here's the probable display of my dream n appeal to any Indian Publication house (BEST ToI itself) to re-start it...

Bring BACK Indrajal Comics !!!!

u have spoken my words.Wonder if someone takes it on.
Will be a dream come true...
I don't know,iam fascinated by these,no other comic brings so much attraction.
i even lost the taste of Tinkle thanx to them but by that time it was too late and I had to rely solely on Libraries which had quite a few.But private ones just squeeze u,have to pay on daily basis.
That's why i hold special place for(in alphabetical order)Ajay,Anupam,Balaji,Chandoba,Comic guy,Frank,Kit, Sagnik,TCP,TPH and many more...The amount of respect I have for these guys...I'll fall short of words.
These people have really given us plenty to cheer about, time and again,people without whom,IC'c could have been a very distant memory.That's why I comment whenever I get the time.A very least thing I can do.

Yeah i completely agree with you that IJC was best among other Phantom/Mandrake publications.One can easily compare them with Frew,Egmont,Gold Key,Charlton and others.
If they could be revived again by some publication house in our life time certainly it would be a 'Punarjanam'

Dear Sagnik,

Wonderful thoughts. Howvever. Why did they stop publishing in the first place ? It was the lack of subscriptions. Remember this was just before the advent of STAR TV, other cables channnels, WIn98 and the internet. This was before our economy opened up. If that was the situation then what is going to change now? Probably the people who visit this blog would buy these copies. Parents dont encourage their children to read anymore.
So I dont see it happening.

Grouchy is 100% correct. Such a sad situation.

#TPH: No dude,Pattu was only 50% correct....'cos IF 'that enconomy boom' was a reason...then how come DC published those Phantom/mandrake just after the cancellation of Indrajals n that too for ~8/9 years??

Mind it,they(DC)published only those strips mostly alredy published in IJCs ....still they made money on those for a long time(around 2000)!!....
Now,If they only published THEN CURRENT strips,thing wud b surely far better (AS I know,those having IJC version of same story,avoided to buy the DC-reprints!)

So,it's definetly the less subscription-thing was a reason, BUT obviouly not only one neither that 'economy boom' !!
