Comic #103 : A Betal Indrajal : Bhoyankar Parjatak/ভয়ংকর পর্যটক(No.148)

 I hope you are visiting our new blog Bengali Treasure-Trove(BTT). Today morning,a new posting has been done..

  Meanwhile enjoy ভয়ংকর পর্যটক - a fascinating Betal abhijan! Well,Falk was a master story-teller specially in the back-drop of well-planned & dreaded crimes and this one,Bhoyankar Parjatak, is no exception.Another thing Falk maintained throughout his tenure that,however crooked the female characters can be,they are morally at higher position and has been shown in the far better light than their male counterparts!In this adventure you will find one of those looters,Bela, has been shown in much soft-natured than you might have expected!
  In his earliest phase,specifically in the '30s & '40s,Falk was responsible for several (in)famous & dreaded all-female pirate-gangs' origins with whom our Betal met for several time.Those gangs were never returned in the later-phase but still their encounters with the Phantom are considered among the best Falk-classics solely because how the characters have been shown!
They were as follows:
  • The Sky Band (1936-42)
  • The Golden Circle (1939-40)
  • The Mermaids of Melo Straits (1945-46)
  • The Lady Luck Pirates (1948)
 But later,due to some unknown reason,Falk moved-on from this concept and hence later we find female crooks only teamed-up with other male partners!
 Among those female-only gangs and other female pirates,Suzie - member of that ruthless and high-profile pirate-gang - holds a special place as she was one who betrayed her gang solely because she fell in love with the Phantom and finally died,but not before seeing His face - something that's pretty rare in the Ghost Who Walks' universe!

 Between, Bhoyankar Parjatak was originally published as the 113th Daily strip, titled The Mysterious Passenger, and ran from May-July 1971.

@ArkaS: I don't understand,what you meant by 'bigger sizes'???I have posted in 35 MB size for a 32-pager i.e. 1 MB/Page..
But if all visitors want higher sizes I can scan in that,so asking all friends,are ok with current file-size or want bigger ones??

You scanned same size with 200 resolutions. "Mama always said, 300 is better for digital printing"...but 200 is not bad. Which matters most is Jpeg format. Jpeg compression lost lots of detail of the scanned image.
If anyone wants to make a zero compression file with .tiff or other raw format, file size will be 15+ MB per page. So you can guess the full file size of the book. What anyone do with that...?

I think your scan is perfect for me.

Off-topic ;p, story line is very strong and wonderful...cover art is just awesome.

@Ujjal : Thanks for your input.:)yes I do believe size is ok and bigger size doesn't help the reading much if the clarity is maintained perfectly!

And yes,any cover-art by Govid B are superbeven today's high-tech standard!:)
