BENGALI Phantom Sunday-Strip Pages(Batch 3)

UPDATE: Friends,first check some special links from the Phantom_WIKI where we are working in the Indian_Phantom section!! Any help will be appreciated!

General Indian Section:

BENGALI Newspaper & maagzine Section:

This is the final batch of the অরণ্যদেব aka Phantom-Sundays published in the Indrajal Comics.From the next post,you will see some of the Post-Indrajal strips..
Today following Sunday pages have been attached:
Indrajal Sundays( #3):
  • S128 - Queen Amaza's Mate 
  • S129 - The Fighting Twins
  • S131 - The Bride of Xali
  • S132-  Exodus of the Little People
  • S133 - Death from the Sky
Now,before going to the actual strip pages,let's have some look at these old,vintage ads/articles used appear in the '80s Desh(the magazine where these strips were published,as I've mentioned before).Buddies,do these trigger some old nostalgic memories?? :))

Now the Sunday pages....
(Carefully look @the 2nd & 3rd panels of the following page.Indrajal skipped these(in V25 N18-19:Raiders from Amaland) where it has been mentioned Hero as well as (for the first time)Devil's origin!While Hero was introduced in a old daily strip(by Falk himself),for Devil,that concept was originally from an Egmont classic : Devil's Story aka 'Deviler Golpo' - published by Dev Sahitya Kutir in their short-yet-successful Aranyadev series on 2003!)

Thanks for sharing your creative post.
Nice to see some pages of old Desh...and those Ads...reminds me an old ad of ONIDA মনে আছে Onida-র বিজ্ঞাপনের কথা ? সেই যে "neighbor's envy owner's pride" এটা মনে পরল এই কারণে... I believe you are very knowledgeable about comics and newspaper strips of all kind like Tarzan to Phantom and Mandrake to Rip Kirby.
And that why I envy you...envy your knowledge :).

And about Devil, আমি ডেভিলকে নিয়ে দুটো Story পড়েছি। একটা হল Devil's Story of Egmont publication which you mention...and and another was The tale of Devil in 2 part Indrajal No. 327-328.
কিন্তু দুটো গল্পে অনেক তফাত।

Anyway, enjoy your comics pages. :)

@MS:Thanks for your detailed comment!Ohh yeah,I remember that ad.. :P
About Tarzan,first of all,I envy your collection as all those RM sundays you have in Bengali,those I am searching for the last couple of years!!!
Now,again,I'd asked you on Suktara-r Tarzan,ar tumi bolle je ogulo golper akare beriyechilo!!Toh,kal ami amar old Suktara gulo check korlam,and holla,I have those(puro bhule giyechilam,partly due to the textual-format)!!:))
You have triggered my nostalgia-bud ,so now I will post some interesting & old stuffs from these allmost forgotten pre-teen magazines!!:)
Now about Devil,yes ota think,duto story ache same naam-e(Bagha-r Kahini & Devil-er Golopo),but Indrajal-er ta Falk-er lekha and moreover,that was nothing to do with Devil's origin(rather how Betal saved him,as you know!)

Kono ekdin,we will discuss more Indrajal etc stories.:)
