(top) First day page from phantom daily strip #074 "The Swamp Rats". Indrajal version of this story is being presented in this post.
But I am sad. Since a very few downloaders actually pay the courtesy to acknowledge the download through comment, now I am left with no option to judge the success of a particular post (or comic). It used to be a nice way to assess the popularity of a comic post by noting the number of downloads, and to take inspiration from that. That also suggests the trends in the readers taste, which eventually directs the blogger in the right direction. Sadly, it had to go.
I did something different on personal front this time. (obviously I am still talking about the comics, in case you want to start the guesswork) I took some printouts of the Phantom Sunday #136 (which I am coloring now a days). Normal Inkjet printer was used and, to my pleasant surprise, the results were outstanding. Take a look at the pics. Is it too costly? Nah, the refill job will make it highly cost-effective. I am ready with my color bottles. If you are suspicious about the quality of the refilled ink, let me say I have taken these using refilled only. Much satisfactory.
Finally, a comic post. A classic phantom story from 15 August, 1976 issue of Indrajal Comics and Originally a daily strip from 1959. English version was posted by TCP long ago. I am presenting the Hindi version. Had already posted it yesterday on My Hindi Indrajal Blog too.
