Comic #27:Phantom Sundays:Captain Amazon -the Pirate Queen(S134;1989)

Hello friends! Here's a superb classic from Phantom Sunday strips(S134) where it has been shown how a gentle,beautiful lady can become a most dreaded pirate queen - Captain Amazon ! This is one of the BEST Phantom adventures from Phantom-chronicles & eventually she later became the wife of 5th Phantom!
A mind-blowing thriller which I've re-read sometimes .Also,I've it's colored version(incomplete) from our magazine and in color copy Juliet,the pirate queen,was looking stunning!:D

The most famous quote(of her) was "Call us pirates!then we'll be Pirates"!!
Trivia:It's the first Phantom Sunday strip from the Post-Indrajal era(S133 ,which was last Phantom-Sunday in Ijcs,published as Deadly Formula;Vol.26 No.41;Dec,1989).

Have some special glimpses before I providing the d/l link! :-)

Hey Sagnik, this was really a good adventure to read. Do you by any chance have other such Phantom-bride stories? I would really love to read the one featuring the Indian princess!!!

@ADI:
Yep,this one is 'special' and according to me BEST of chronicle stories!~ :D

I would really love to read the one featuring the Indian princess!!!

Tht's another classic of 1986, S122:Alexander's diamond cup where beautiful Indian princess 'Pura' later became the bride of 3rd Phantom,,,i.e. 4th Phantom was half-Indiannnn ,,yeahh. ;)

Now,for comics,this one published in BOTH Ijc (V23 N17/18)& DC(#30)and TPH had alredy published the DC version I guess... :)

@ALL:
The Poll becomes interesting by now and I'm specially amazed to see as many as 4 fans cast their vote for 1964 -1969 period i.e. the earliest ones!!!
Honestly I though that '1st option' will be going to vacant,,,so am pretty curious about their still-alive love for these long lost gems!!
So, I humbly request 2 all of these earliest Indrajal-Fans,plse come forward and share your thought through comments!!! :D

Cheers!
