#130 The Night of The Theft

Update: Many many thanks to Ciro for his wonderful artwork for ICC. It has been now added as ICC logo.

I would like to thank all my friends and viewers for supporting me in this difficult time. We are trying to come out of it but at the same time we are beginning to feel a vacuum in our life without him.


"yeh kya ke chand hi kadmon mein thak ke baith gaye
tumhe to saath hamara dur tak nibhana tha"


Here is a link of his company's website about his death.

Anyway, I would like to congratulate TPH and Cw for trying new ways of posting comics, but I'm very much satisfied with our old method which TCP started.

Also, I'm not applying any password protection / link via mails method for distributing comics, After reading all debates/discussions on both blogs, I have come to the conclusion that, there is no point in applying rules and regulations to our fabulous blogs, if you appreciate our efforts, you will express your feelings.

so, matlab ki baat kya: if you wanna comment, you are welcome, if u do not want to comment, you are also welcome. In every possible condition, you will get your comics... bina shart...

TPH,CW please do not angry with me :(-

Hi chandu! I do not think TPH or CW will be mad at you! After all, we are all friends aren't we? :o)

Dear ICC,

May I say that you have displayed extraordinary grace when life drops you at a trough. You are a strong and brave man. Many thanks for the comic. I am also glad about your sentiments about the password. However if you notice CW's new post the regulars havent asked for the link since they would be getting and there are a few new entries. So It does have some effect.

When TCP was doding this alone, I also just used to come download comics and go. Once by chance I read through a comment thread. I loved it. There were so many like minded people. Then I satarted commenting in blogs as often as possible. I am sure if the downloaders do the same they would also come to the same conclusion.

wishes
GS

my condelences..

as i said on comic world the blog owner has full rights to set the rules as per his preference and it is upto us to follow them if we want the comic..however i agree with you that passwords have no significance... that in no way diminish the effort of all of you who take the effort to actually scan and publish these comics.. in case if i have not in the past i thank you all for your wonderful effort..

Thank you so much for posting this tale. In a way, you are right - if people don't want to comment, it just shows their ungraciousness, no use in forcing them to post a comment under duress.

Comic World said...

ICC:There is no question of me being angry with your method of posting comics,its your blog and you are the ultimate boss to decide things.
The only thing is when there 'seems' to be some similar thoughts over a particular issue then the individuals carrying those thoughts unconsciously tends to carry away some expectations over that issue which results in a pseudo sentimental betrayal if others suddenly and unexpectedly deflects away from their prior state of thought.
I wish to quote your famous comment which you made over TPH:
"tph: sorry, been busy today, yet to download,,, thinking of joining u .. starting password protection,,
tell me ur ratio.. downloads vs comments
( this is only for those people who dont comment, who want everything free and at their feet..
if cw/mtm/aa join us.. inki to khol ke marenge,,,,sorry for my words.. but cant think better"


Otherwise practically no hard feelings as such.

Dara said...

Nice release :-)

P.S.- @Big Bros:Don't fight!Specially over issues originated by some insensitive idiots :-(

P.S.- Personally,I'm NOT in favor of p/w protectn,as 'those' downloaders shud understand the effort by themselves as ONE CAN'T TEACH a 20+ guy for showing thnx/greatfulness ,if he doesn't !

Indrajal Comics Club said...

cw: i still remember my words, and wud have stuck to it happily but the thing which happened last week changed me a bit.. i now really dont feel to fight over anything, i have realised that its a small life,
i have become philosophical for the time being, may be i will change my mind in few days... so i m with u only.. just wanted to avoid any fights

Indrajal Comics Club said...

cw: btw, u and tph have already started giving dl links.. u have given the link of child lifters, whats tyhe purpose of all debates then? u havent prevented unwanted downloaders,

Comic World said...

#ICC:There was not any slightest idea of any sort of debate/fight invitation behind my words.I just shared/vented my honest feelings with you,so please don't misunderstand or take anything otherwise.
The major purpose behind channelizing the d/l distribution system was only to refill/rekindle my extinguishing enthusiasm and joy of posting,in which i think i achieved the objective behind.
Requesting again to please not to take anything otherwise in these wee hours.Me along my sincere wishes is always with you in this cloudy time.

Bhairav said...

Thanks for the comic.. looks nice.. Though, I think i am going to wait for the cbr version.. Great job dude.. Keep the flame burning...

Chandan said...

I don't want the 3rd party to enjoy this...so please,in Marathi,for ICC,CW and TPH.
"DOKI CHALWA ANI SHANTATA KARAR KARA"."APPLY UR HEADS AND CALL FOR TRUCE/CEASE FIRE"in English.

I can understand the feelings of CW,particularly because of some anonymous comments which were really hard to digest,specially so because they were baseless.Now when someone provides/doesn't provide links,he eventually becomes a hero/villain in others' mind.A small promise made by ICC might be the cause here since it affects the others,specially considering links to be a serious issue.
Arrey,ICC provides and the others don't...well it is difficult.Iam sure ICC had that idea,initially,i could sniff it.But the past few days were something very difficult for him and must have concluded that this is a issue not worth to be discussed.And for whom?
For people who don't have a simple mind to put in a comment.Those who are ready to pounce upon, when hurt,not realising,the people they have hurt in turn.
I don't have any right to fall bet'n friends and words but please,I love all of u and can't bear to see any misunderstanding.

I still will stand by CW for his stand and with ICC for his attitude.Both are right in their places.And not to forget,TPH also.

Iam sure,in days to come,both TPH and CW would have returned to their normal self and this was just to bring notice to common man the grave injustice that was metted out to all blogs.
And in fact,ICC was also at forefront fighting fire with fire for CW and TPH.So all in all,I believe and admire a sense of togetherness amongst these great people.
Normally i do write a long one for comics or related to the subject,but this one is exclusively written,from the bottom of my heart,for my friends...CW,ICC and TPH.
Come on all,cheer up and also hope India wins the series 3-1 against Pakistan tomorrow.

chandan & sagnik: thanks for ur support to icc, cw and tph .. people like u will help us to run these blogs till the end

Chandan said...

I fail to understand one thing.A renowned publ’n like IC’s also made some serious blunders.Was it lack of expertise that was missed?
Most of the Phantom and Mandrake stories were republished.Fine.For eg.
LATER ISSUE-----PREVIOUS ISSUE

1. DODGING VILLAIN----PHANTOM,THE PROTECTOR
2. LEGEND OF MASSAU DEITY---THE MAN EATING PLANT
3. CURSE OF THE SACRED IMAGE---THE 2 HEADED BULL
4. CONSPIRING OUTLAW---THE MOUSE TRAP(MANDRAKE)

And all of these titles bore on the cover page something like:This is a repeated version of a story titled………published on ……
Absolutely fine,no issues.
But do u all know that some comics were republished without any literature anywhere?No information whatsoever.
Once again the same format ,this time without any info:
1. the mysterious foe----prince orq
2. 5 MILLION JEWEL ROBBERY-----SKY HIGH PIRACY
3. HOUSE OF HORRORS---THE EVIL ONES(MANDRAKE)
4. TRAIL OF GOLDEN FLOWER---THE GOLDEN PEOPLE
5. MISSING TROPHY----THE NIGHT OF THE THEFT/THE FABULOUS TROPHY
6. THE PHANTOM’S WRATH---THE RIVER PIRATES
7. WITCH QUEEN’S PROPHECY-----SAMARIS

And there are many more.Why and how was this?Isn’t it a costly slip?
They even went to the extent of repeating a daily(D100) ie Night of the Theft with that of THE FABULOUS TROPHY AND THE MISSING TROPHY which were Sunday S083 strips.
I don’t forget what I read once.IAm disappointed because although we say more than 500 were published as Phantom,most of them were repeated with or without any info….
Kindly throw some light on this anyone….

Dear Chandan,

Good post. I have long waited for someone to provide a list of original and republished stories of Pantom and Mandrake. If we did this we will narrow down the list of yet to be posted online comics even more. You have given many entries. Maybe Dr. Sagnik, ICC and CW could add to them.

√úbermann said...

Hey friend... Hope everything else goes well with you in this difficult time...

Great comics... can't wait to read it...

Dara said...

@Dadu/Old man Chandan :
Hi ,(It's me,SG ---BACK 2 original account! :-))
I'd made a COMPLETE LIST of R.V. of IJC long ago...there r ~90 R.V. n 70/20 is the P/M ratio...NO OTHER characters were repeated.

Now,abt mentioning,IJC did published some R.V. in No.321/323 frm No.40/50 etc
Then,in Vol.20,they took it as a regular-show-case of old-comics,ALSO that was one way to avoid Buz/Nomad etc......

E.g. Vol.20 No.36 --- No.39 (1967)
20-37 ---No.41 etc

BUT,They stated mentioning frm ONLY Vol.24 No.1 (may b due 2 KFS objectn??) n lasted upto Vol.26 No.20 ....Then 26-39 was missed.....

P.S.- I like some pple show interests,as MOST r busy in scan-collectn n nothing else. :-/

Chandan said...

Ciro said...

Hi,i am near to you in your difficult time.
I understand this moment.
This is the life.
Good comic!

The Phantom Head said...

Nice comics. Thanks.

I request you to add an image to your profile. Will make it easy to locate your comments. Will also avoid confusion with similar names like indrajal fanclub. The picture you recently removed from main page, to make way for ciro's nice work, can well serve the purpose.
