1979 issue of Phantom Indrajal Comics, The Swamp Dragon is already available on net. (It was originally posted by TCP). The same story was later republished in indrajal in 1989 with hindi title "Ateet Ka Karishma". This is my today's post.
This is the story where Phantom first found Stegy, the stegosaurus. I remember reading the original 1979 publication with lot of enthusiasm and joy. Some of the panels where phantom is involved in training of the animal are still afresh in my memory. So, a bit of nostalgia associated with this story.
The later version of 89 is more or less similar with no noticeable changes in story and editing etc but there is certainly one thing which appears instantly. The colouring of Stegy is quite different in the two publications. The later one showing it in Dark Brown while the original scheme was to show it in Green, the colour we have become accustomed to, all along the indrajal journey, for this magnificent creature.
Adventures associated with "Eden" are always very exciting to read. Each of those animal was transported there under some unique circumstances and all of them have a different story to tell about their journey to this enchanting island.
Enjoy this one.
