The Skull Cave Treasures said...

You had amazed me personally, when u mentioned that 5500 mega haul! U see, that is why i called u a king... sorry, i was mistaken! YOU ARE a EMPEROR like MAGNON, king of several worlds!! Are you sending me the DVD for this as u mentioned when we met in pune?

Indrajal Comics Club said...

gs:

i collected them from net, dc++ hubs, ivan pederson. 15 days ago, my wife gave her PhD thesis for binding near IIT mumbai, there, i asked that person, and he converted all jpgs to pdf, strip by strip, and printed them back to back on a good quality paper, and bound them ,,, total 18 volumes.. 10-10 strips each.. i didnt consider strips after 1994.. though i have them all till date.. those r wothless according to me...
also planning to print all sundays.. when time permits and money too

Indrajal Comics Club said...

sameer,

sure, i will send u a dvd.. or i;m planning to come there on 24th to attend a marriage( unofficially, i will search those places again for indrajals ;-), if i visit, i will give u dvd there only..

Grouchy's Comics said...

Terrific effort. Must have cost a packet. Its worth it though.

Indrajal Comics Club said...

yes, i paid @ 10000 odd bucks for these 180 strips, with everything ofcourse

DARA said...

Those R looking gr8!!:-))

I think, D181 was Barry's LAST strip,you may have missed that!yes,post-Barry dailies r WORTHLESS,though Sunday r still considerable as those were majorly illustrated by Fredricks!

Btwn,b4 print-out those sundays,plz let me know. ;-

Indrajal Comics Club said...

dara

yes i missed that one.. nevermind, i may print that one along with some falk;s last strips..

sure i will let u know '-

DARA said...

sushant said...

Hey ICC, now you are inspiring me!! Well, when I go home this vacation will try to chck out my lost treasure!! Hav some 80-90 hardcopies of IJC n lot others like Supremo-Amitabh/ Hindi n English Superman/ n yeah offcourse Manoj/ Diamonds!..lets c if those r still intact n not eaten by moth! If ok, I will pukka scan n send to you fr your blogs! My one request: One phantom IJC where 3 thieves comes to jungle on pretext of looting skull cave treasure..they bring 2 copters also kept hidden in a dead volcanotop..can u get me 2nd part of this?

Colonel Worobu said...

Nice effort. Rs 10000 is a bit steep but worth it if you can afford it. It used to be my dream as a little kid to have all phantom stories bound in one volume :o)
