Comic #22:Phantom Daily:The CaveLands - STORY of Hzzz!!(D126 ;1975)

UPDATE: D/L link of this strip(D126) has been provided...enjoy this tale & let me know if this one is exciting enough,,,,and if yes,then I may publish it's Part-II(D128:Hzzz) in due time!!
-------------------------------------------------------------

After seeing visitors enthusiasm for the Blackie story(already 71 downloads),I thought why NOT publish the most thrilling adventures associated wid Eden's members!!

Yes! I'm talking about the Phantom's one-of-the-most-thrilling adventures(wid his then fiancee Diana, in 1975) ......to solve the mystery of dreaded cavelands of Denkali(or Bangala!) .....which was eventually the motherland of our Hzz....... it's a 1975-daily:D126:The Cavelands!!
I can say with some certainty,if you've 'liked' that Blackie strip,will be thrilled with this adventure,for sure!! ....now,for beginning,have some special glimpses ...later I'll provide the d/l link! ;-))
P.S.- This tale I first read(n was instantly thrilled) way back in 1991,when some friend of mine had gifted me this strip's Indrajal Comics 'version'(The Cave of Evil ;Vol.25 No.24) which was earlier published in Ijc as The Cave Monster(#252).....
Since then around 17 years have been passed,still it's my one of the closest Indrajals ever!!!! :-))

#Doctor saab:
I totally agree wid you,,,,when it's B/W it reqr HIGHER quality of scan than it's colored counter part...otherwise it's bit difficult to enjoy the comics thoroughly!!
And personally,I've rated 'Blackie' as 7/10 & 9/10 for this 'Cavelands'......still I'd published the former one only due to it's appeal!!

P.S.- I've some 'Phantom S/D scans' which r bit low(not much)in quality n thus I've decided to not publish thoz...as I myself didn't enjoy them!

Keep coming wid your inputs...:-)

Cheers!!

I agree with majoriry. Both of these are superb strips. Indrajal has its own value but these high quality strips are no less in any way. Probably even better because they are without edit.

#Adi:
Yeah,this one is a real Phantom Thriller!!!

How did Hzz die in this? I thought he would be alive

Arre,didn't you see Hzz very much kickin' n alive in Blackie strip which's a 1992 daily,n it's a 1974 one!!
NO!!! Hzz didn't die n that's the USP of it's continution part,D128,which also had published in Ijc #271!!

I'll publish that soon,just wait n watch... ;o)
