#090 The Mouse Trap

UPDATE: All links in the "published comics" section have been updated and a new Sunday Strip has been posted at our Phantom blog.

First, two good news

1 Bala's blog has been restored.

2 CW is back.

Wanted to post the Flash strip I mentioned earlier, but the resolution of all strips is very high, so, working on it at the moment. Watch out my next post.
Anyone interested in Rip Kirby's daily strips? these strips have been downloaded from Daily Ink, as I'm a member of it.

ICC's 50th comic is coming up in few days !!! any suggestion for that occasion? should it be 50th comic posted or 50th post on the blog?

Meanwhile, enjoy this rare Mandrake Indrajal, scanned by Ajay.

#Chandu:
Will u post a couple of Flash B/W strips in one post??

And I personally think,u needn't to display all B/W pages here ...can leave it with 1st page with d/l links only..

P.S.- Thnx for this Mandrake scan...Love to read original ones,though have it's repeat version (Vol.24 No.39). :-/

sAg_NiK said...

Yes,for more fun,u can celebrate in BOTH occasions, (50th post n 50th comic)

It's NOT a big deal at all!!If Mandrake-Narda can have TRIPLE wedding (that's too in diff. parts of World !:-o))) ,u can celebrate Double Golden Jubilee of ICC easily!! ;-)

Chandan said...

Wanted to be ist..sigh... had some wretched problem with internet.
Great effort,Icc.2 in 2 nothing more to ask..
Dear Icc,i request u to post a big post on u (as 50th),ur life and other things.Will know u better.
And the next post pls post either bahadur--Gang of imposters or PHANTOM--river of fire.
But sagnik's choices also on sarankhon par...I don't mind being last also.
Thanks for everything----Iam also v.v.v glad that my dear friend is back,yes---CW.Iam very happy today.

Grouchy Smurf said...

Nice Comic. Many thanks. The early Mandrake strips of Falk have a very 'american' feel to them. Somehow I never got that feeling about the Phantom.

Rip Kirby strips would be nice. Please do post them if possible.

50th is a special occasion. I cant think of anything special.
Sagnik bhai are there any really special Indrajals left?

Thanks again

Indrajal Comics Club said...

bala: welocme dear, i am so happy that ur blog has been recovered

Indrajal Comics Club said...

sagnik: yes i will post flash strip,, i have reduced size .. so will post in regular format...

Indrajal Comics Club said...

Indrajal Comics Club said...

Indrajal Comics Club said...

pattu: rightly said, i like falk stories,, but like barry's artwork more,, bary's diana is a babe,,, while moore and mccoys is typical firang

sAg_NiK said...

#ICC:Giving a chance,I'll go for BOTH....but,as I want the BEST (Also,I'm afraid to see less Flash ,as visitors get impatient if ther's no P/M/B in a 3/4 day-gap :-/) and thus reqst u to post INITIAL few strips of ALL Dan Barry n then with some Colored one from early ones!
What do ya think??

sAg_NiK said...

"like barry's artwork more,, bary's diana is a babe,,, while moore and mccoys is typical firang!"

hahaha .... But yup,Sy Barry's Diana is a hottie,a REAL brunet babe but then there's more in this list. ;-))
As Fredricks Narda ,Dan Barry's Del and hamara Bahadur's Bela!!!!

ALL r real babe...I missed them very much and their omph-Quotient is the ONE reason I became a IJC-hunter in last few years! ;-))

Comic Guy said...

ICC your 50th comic post is awaited eagerly...i hope that it will suitable enough to quench the big thirst of the big occasion.
Chandan you are the youngest and most adorable kid of our Indrajal family.

The Phantom Head said...

#ICC: Any IJC under #100 seems to coming from phantom's major treasure. Same with this one. heartfelt gratitude to you and mr mishra.

Rip Kirby daily is a great idea. Most welcome.

We'll celebrate both 50s. Just let them come.

Chandan said...

Beware....CW.Youngest?Well Iam a little naughty,very demandy,a little troublesome but a straightforward guy.I luv u all.And iam 32,married and a proud daddy.

Guys,can't give u much,just thought to offer a couple of smiles.So even if u didn't understand,please smile/laugh.

Aditya Simha said...

Thanks again for the excellent comic! For the next post - 50th comic and 50th post please! They will both be excellent!

Do any of you know about the issue where Mandrake's final confrontation with Cobra occurs? Is there an issue like that at all?

Indrajal Comics Club said...

sagnik: will post barry/flash first, then briggs/flash dailies and then colour...
narda is a bikini babe... but diana or bela? what will u prefer? i will kidnap bela any day,, but will write a letter to bahadur that sagnik has kidnapped her ;-

Indrajal Comics Club said...

cw:thanks dear, i promise you that it will be a biggie..

Indrajal Comics Club said...

tph: thanks dear..

Indrajal Comics Club said...

chandan: hahahah that was funny...

Indrajal Comics Club said...

aditya: thanks for the compliments, no i dont think so, 1990-91 cobra's identity had been revealed, but that was long after indrajal stopped publishing

Indrajal Fanclub said...

Dear Chandoba, I have emailed u some time ago... pl. answer the email... have not been in contact for some time now...

sAg_NiK said...

narda is a bikini babe... but diana or bela? what will u prefer?

Narda n Diana BOTH r look hotttt in bikinies!! But yes,Narda is more prone wear a bikini-n-have a sun-bath (typical princes style!)

Do ya know ALL those swiming costume she (Narda)wear in IJC were an addition of ToI??
May b considering India's mind-set in '70s,they re-draw ALL bikini-clad Narda to swimming costume :((

What a 'shame'of consevative-ness ;-) ,,,,,though later from late 70s to the end,they retain ORIGINAL bikinies ...:-)))

P.S.- If ya read the original strip,where 22nd Kit found the Little pple (IJC Vol.20 No.19/20),Diana had a bath in skull-cave in which she was shown undressed from back! ;-))
But,'stupid/wise' ToI fellas edited this part! ;-/

sAg_NiK said...

i will kidnap bela any day,, but will write a letter to bahadur that sagnik has kidnapped her ;-

B careful,Bela is Judo/Karate champ.....do ya remember how she threw Bahadur,in their very 1st meeting?? Then she threw lottsa crooks....

So forget abt it,IF u wanna see ur 206 bones in places! ;-))

Indrajal Comics Club said...

if: saw ur mail, just replying it

Indrajal Comics Club said...

a fight will not occur..i will win her by love. ;-

The Phantom Head said...

Talking of Bikinies, When IJC published Garth stories, they made Astra wearing them but Hindustan Times Strips made no such attempts in cladding her. That was very brave and I was sometimes amazed and sometimes embarassed. (Remember Astras is a godess and doesn't wear anything at all).

The Phantom Head said...

Chandu, do you think she will dump Bahadur for you?

sAg_NiK said...

#TPH:Bela will dump Bahadur for Chandu ONLY WHEN Bahdur dump her at 1st place! ;-)) ....may b by then, she'll b a 60-yr lady!....then chandu will win her easily!!

haahahahahahahha

Anil said...

Indrajal Comics Club said...

tph: i'm 100% sure of it... sabr ka phal meetha hota hai..

sagnik: woh phal 60 saal ka hoga to bhi chalega,, daru aur aurat jitni purani utni zyada nasha deti hai ;-

Indrajal Comics Club said...

Anonymous said...

Rip Kirby strip? Great. There's a fellow who used brain power instead of super power. (In mouse trap, Mandrake had to use it)

Indrajal Comics Club said...

anon: welcome. if u leave ur name, that will be better to interact

sAg_NiK said...

daru aur aurat jitni purani utni zyada nasha deti hai ;-

Really?? I don know abt daru,BUT i realised in my life,how many times we celebrate the old-things ,it's the NEW/FREH look,that bring the joy!!
Yes,agar naya kuch nahi mile toh,purani-hi sahi :-)

Abt gale/women,what I felt in my life,while 20+ r charming/fresh/bit in experienced.... those 30+ to early 40s r bomb! Bu they r NOT choclate-bomb that anybody can explode with fire.....they r time-bomb which otherwise lay cool OR put right wire/connectn...it'll xplode!!!

Obviously,to some xtent,that xplotion is quite xciting!!....beyond some pt,it brings trouble ;-)

Anil said...

Sorry,ICC.i DID NOT MEEN TO OFFEND YOU.I like all your comics.Forgive me.

The Phantom Head said...

#Chandu/Sagnik: ....and I thought this is a comic blog.

sAg_NiK said...

#TPH:It's obviously a comic-blog...but shudn't restricted within it!! ;-))

After all,how much we r behave like a kid,we r NOT n xcept some,all r even very much married like u,so take it easy... :-))

IJC/other comics r gr8,it help me specially,when I streesed out in my personal level,b it a Lecturer or b in frndship level or more complex thing.....IT'S NOT A GOOD IDEA always been away from reality...once a while,it's ok!

But,yup..... for now,it's over! :-)

Indrajal Comics Club said...

The Phantom Head said...
