Indeed a very nice strip,also was very soothing to see Lothar's native background.I don't remember before this in which strip Lothar's background was mentioned.
Quite pretty inking and coloring too,neither too hard and nor too soft.
It quite relieving to see that Fredrick quite successfully carrying out the Falk's legacy,which is not in the case of Phantom.
Waiting for more such strips from your side.Try to provide d/l of the complete strip.

@CW:Thanks.Yes,those strips from '90s I got having very decent inking and the fact that these were scanned from "original" paper-cut make thinbgs more vintage! :)

MaNdrAke dudE said...

@PBC:Problem has been fixed...enjoy! And about "discussion" I didn't said it seriously as I don't expect any fan to discuss any of thier fav. heroes stories....I guess most are just love to read the stories in order to revive their lost childhood and nothing more...AND which's quite ok with me now...allthough personally I'm a GREAT LOVER of detalied discussions of favorite stories etc..beingold timer,I guess!!:P
Keep coming....:-)

Another Lothar in oldie style. Will read through and come back to comment.

Thanks for sharing, Mandrake Dude :)

PBC said...

My view matches with CW. But I'm not going Africa....he he he.

Oh, I can go India only. No risk. ;)

Liked comic, although it could be better, as all 4 - Mandrake, Lothar, Narda and Karma were in active role, generally 2-3 had a passive role in the mostly story.

Honestly, I just attracting attention about one point which I didn't like - the way how African tradition was presented. In this way outsiders generally had wrong impact. It's very tough question to answer which traditions are good or bad.

e.g. Can we wear like Eskimo? Or can we don't bath for months? But if they follow our way, same day they will leave this world.

or

How can anyone say his way of praying is good? Does anyone see the God?

People generally project other details from their local point of view. Such short stories - such marriage tradition presentation generally gives wrong idea about the dark Continent.

Dear, I was serious, when said wait for sometimes about discussion. :))

Where are rest flagship holders of the discussion? :)

Earlier read many times, we wish this and that. :))

MaNdrAke dudE said...

@RR:Thanks...and yes,do come back wid ur feed-back on this strip!:)

MaNdrAke dudE said...

@PBC:Ye,da story cud be better and more thrilling,specially at the point where those men kidnapped Narda & Karma,but alas,they ended up showing as from Lothar's own tribe i.e. Wamabasi!!! CAN U IMAGINE,Lothar's own tribe-men were women hunter??I think 'this concept' was bit disrespectful towards Lothar as he was one of the oldest character in MTM strip and he always shown as Price of 12 nation and still modest(not mention,da strongest too!),but might be Falk had no better idea left...:(

Anyway a nice tale imho!!Specially I loved da fact that this voyage was originally for search-of-KRAKEN and then ended up meeting several weird and thrilling adventures!!:)

PS - Yes,I knew u were serious and I'd told u then too,that I MEANT those downladers and visitors,who,if a true comic-lover,why not join in discussion as that's quite a fun and stress-buster....belive me!! :))

So hopefully they will join wid us,,,untill then let's keep these kinda discussions coming!:)

Phantom And Mandrake Fan said...

Nice Story, liked the way Lothar refused to become the King, especially the part when Karma warns others that she is engaged to Lothar. Goes to show the humor part in the adventure. Keep more coming even if there are panels missing. The goal is to read them all as much as possible that is available.

MaNdrAke dudE said...

@PMF:U r welcome! yes,that humor part was very much needed,allthough I'd expected bit more thrill and excitement,with some more intense danger...as they were in AFRICA!! But anyway,a decent story and the Final adventure of their mamoth "Krarken voyage"!!:))

And hey,I got loads of '90s SUNDAYS in da original Strip format and will post those soon....so keep checking! :)
