This is the cover of the Phantom comic released in Brazil for the 70th Anniversary and was sent in by our friend Lucas Veloso. This book is called "The Phantom - Always on Sundays", for it contains the sunday strips created by Lee Falk and Ray Moore. It has 96 pages and it´s about 27X36 centimeters.
Number 150. I was planning to post a comic by a new contributor, but Desiguru sent in this comic - which is the first Phantom strip to appear in the 30s. He had wanted this to appear during the 1 year celebrations but I missed that message. Difficult choice but I decided to go for desiguru's contribution - with a promise that the new contributor will see his comic posted soon - on an important day coming soon :-) My apologies to the new contributor - whoever that person is.
So here it is: Comic #150.
Three things to note:
1. It is in black and white
2. This is not an Indrajal and was downloaded by Desiguru from somewhere - so all credit to those guys and of course, to DG for getting this to us
3. This comic is 152 pages
And I know that this one will be a bandwidth hogger - so I wanted to do this in 4 parts but then thought that #150 deserved to arrive with a bang.
Btw..this is also post #200. And hidden away here at the bottom of the comic which I hope no one will notice is another small announcement. The disappearance of the download links has been frustrating, but not anymore.
Announcing thecomiclinks.blogspot.com. For now, only the comic download links have been put up but very soon, I hope I can turn it into a comprehensive index: of all comics posted at TCP and also links to what I think are among the better posts at this blog - comic and non-comic related. Might be playing around with the structure a bit until I settle onto something solid. The right-hand side link idea was getting too difficult to handle and was making the blog look really ugly (uglier actually). But TCLink is also a site that will help people get their hands on the comics directly especially if they want to avoid going through the blog. The only catch is that there will be a delay between posting a comic on TCP and seeing the download link on TCLink.
Download comics here and enjoy #150.
P.S: I know I know you are all excited about your rankings, but did you even notice the Phantom comic cover that is posted at THE TOP of this post???? :-)
