Comic #150: Phantom - The Singh Brotherhood

Wednesday, August 02, 2006 Share: Digg Technorati Delicious StumbleUpon Facebook

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.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

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???? :-)

Lage raho :-)

ThePhantom said...

Hey Chandoba.. Looks like I beat you to the first position just by a few seconds.... :-D

chandoba said...

we both are first at same time.. phantom.. congrats

tcp.. its a great comic.. infact I have the original strip...

congrats for posting 150th comic..
keep it up.. we want atleast 803..

chandoba said...

no phantom.. u didnt beat me...Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr... lets share the fame like harry and cedric did in the goblet of fire

ThePhantom said...

Well Well Well......even though the generous side of me wants to do as you suggested.....my other one the competetive one doesn`t seem to agree Chandoba....

:-D

The fact remains that I posted first...doesn`t it... :-)

;-)

ThePhantom said...

Also Nice work with the new blog TCP...

chandoba said...

hey tcp and all... i have just checked the download link and found that 97 phantom comics have been posted till date...

so i hope to see 100th on 15th of Aug

chandoba said...

no way phantom.. this blog system is reverse alphabetical.. so u appeared ( note well.. i used "appeared" )before me.. that doesnt mean u r the first one...

before somebody like obi comes and claims the first position, let us share this.. and lets end this matter for once and all....

done...:-))))))))))))))))

Indrajal Comic Reader said...

I am claiming second since Chandoba did not claim it.....
Thanks for the comic TCP & DesiGuru

Indianmalang said...

I cliam 3rd Position!
Nice

The Comic Project said...

Before this gets confusing and that obi comes and does his dadagiri..i will settle the fight right now!!!!!

First: thephantom urf duplikit and chandoba. Joint first!!! Note that joint first names are written in the order of appearance. No controversy. Evil Zamindar decision final.

Second: Indrajal Comic Reader

Tomorrow, Obi will wonder - what happened here. How did the Evil Zamindar win this round. How did he not understand the meaning of "150 :)"

Cloudy said...

Quick quick quick... claiming 4th! Saw 13 comments already and thought no chance of being in Top 5, but here I am :-)

chackochen said...

I am fifth. yeeeey. Singh brotherhood is a great comic. I had this scan from Ivans site. I love it. Also thanks for the Links.

DesiGuru said...

no one has claimed third position, so i m third! ha ha ha!

Thanks for changing the schedule at last min and posting this big comics as 150th issue TCP!

TCPLink is a nice idea, i m sure it will be as popular as this one!

Nikhil said...

me 6th again

Thanks for posting the new download links.

chackochen said...

@Desiguru: Indianmalang did claim 3 position. :-)

Indianmalang said...

Dear TCP, First Congratulations on # 150. We, in a hurry, to put our names down in order to claim position, often overlook comments in the same column else the spot will be taken! :-)))

This is a wonderful comic and thanks a lot for the download link site. This link is going to solve lot of problem apart from making life easier for people who wants to download. I am sure; readers will like to read Phantom comics other than Indrajaal. If readers feel otherwise then I hope they let their views known so that people like me, who happens to have some Phantom stories, other than Indrajaal, may not send it to TCP. Just my 2 cents!

Revealed said...

7th before desiguru realises:p. Well in the top 10 is a step up from last time:D. Oh and before anyone says anything I CLAIM 7th (realised that the first two sentences might have been called on ambiguity:p).
@ TCP: think its a great idea. Well done (as usual:)
@ thephantom and chandoba: its awwwwesome having our own personal version of the goblet of fire:). Hehe, congrats, you guys

Indianmalang said...

Abay Desiguru..Ankehy hay ki......! Come on man.. after such hard work I claimed 3 position and u are trying to rob me!

Thanks chackochen for saying it loud! By the way, Desiguru...in your attempt to steal...you lost the position which you might have taken Ha.ha..ha..ha

chackochen said...

@IM: My pleasure. and thats right. DG could have been 6th. funny indeed. :-)

chackochen said...

I dont know if you guys noticed it. Phantom has gloves in this comic. And it is said in the comic that phantoms costume is grey.

bigfoot said...

arre which position should i claim..should have never taken panga with the regulars .. am beaten blue and black.. pls some one tell me my position :)

Templetiger said...

I claim 8th.. tiger gets 8th.. yipee!!

ThePhantom said...

Hmm.... well well well...........let me put it this way.........

Owing to the respect I have towards TCP and his decesions.....I accept the proposal to share the First position :-D with Chandoba.......


:-D

There seems to be a lot of confusion regarding the remaining positions though...

Tailspin Tommy said...

Congrads on #150. This is a great scan of the first Phantom daily. Thanks. Also, new download page has a nice layout. Again, thanks.

Templetiger said...

Thanks TCP.. for making memories of long gone days appear forever close.
now 150 ways to remember :)

Anonymous said...

Guys,

Your efforts are impressive. However, isn't this illegal? I am afraid you will have irate publishers of Phantom/Mandrake running behind you.

Regards,
Well-wisher

Sunshine said...

I'm 9th :) (ie, if the evil Zamindar doens't interfere ;D)

Obi Wan said...

Me 10th Me 10!!! Thank Gawd, I managed to be in the top 10 in the 150th post! And yes, tcp, I am cursing myself now that how could I not understand the 150 :-)

Heartiest congratulations! Tum aur yeh blog jiyo hazaaron saal aur saal ke din hon pachaas hazaar!(May you and this blog live for thousands of years, and may each year have 50000 days)

May the Force be with you!

gairola said...

Thank You for the download link..

For a comic fanatic like me its a dream come true,, though i use to rip the TCP using a small java program which parses your site and gets me the related pages from imageshack server.

neways not of much use now but still if any one wants to tweak and use it, it can be downloaded from here

Sherlock holmes said...

i feel that any position claimed after 10 is not good enugh . So i claim the last position ( i know there will be people after me ) . but still iam LAST . IAM last . IAM LAST .

Sketchy Self said...

CONGRATULATIONS TCP for completing 150 comics - Amazing man just amazing !!

L1CACHE said...

congrats..TCP!!!!

FI... L1cache does exist & has been xtrmly busy fighting yeh zaleem duniya of managers. I think I need the "Ghost Who Walks" for help... dugudugudugdugu...drums beating for help...

Sunshine said...

@TCP: Of course, we all noticed the Phantom cover on top.

@Lucas Veloso: Thank you for sending it.

joe said...

hello folks...whass been happenin?

Before I forget, mubarak to TCP for the 150th comic.

Take care people.

-J.

Sketchy Self said...

wah, what a comic! amazing...from the dates mentioned in it it was first published in the 1930's-40s? but still what a wonderful job on the drawings, the lettering, the quality of dialogue...fantastic! desiguru, congrats to you for scoring such a priceless treasure and sharing it with us, and to TCP for the "bang" for the 150th...i'm waiting for this one to go up on comiclinks, so i can grab it! and btw, congrats TCP on 200th post!

Revealed said...

@ TCP: course we saw the cover. I though it was beautiful
This comic is pretty awesome as well. Cannot believe someone took the trouble to draw up 152 pages. Is it hand drawn?
Also I did have serious doubts that L1 existed:). Thought (s?)he was just an imaginary friend:). @L1, best of luck with the managers n hope da drums bring help:p.

Cloudy said...

@Sunshine: See? You are the only one who thanked Lucas Veloso. So, not everyone is Sunshine :)

@Revealed: Had my doubts too, I did... about L1...

Ashwin Baliga said...

150 Comics posted. Wow! I have been a regular since a long while. Keep up the good work.

Obi Wan said...

arre tcp, of course we all noticed the cover, 'tis magnificent. Lucas Veloso bhaiyya, dhanywaad(Lucas Veloso brother, thanks)!!!

Obi Wan said...

And btw, itna sannata kyon hai bhai??? This is the 150th comic, for Phantom's sake!!!

Obi Wan said...

You guys game for 1500 comments on the 150th comic???

Obi Wan said...

Sounds a bit too ambitious na???

Obi Wan said...

Still, let us try. I start with claiming the 50th comment spot!

chackochen said...

Haha I claim 51st.

"Phantom is the lion of Bengalla"
"Ghost who walks will not rest until the justice is done."

The Comic Project said...

Thanks to my timely intervention, a major ranking catastrophe was avoided!!! :-)


@cloudy: this is one of those weird places where 13 can be 4th :-s
@chackochen: ok so this is from ipcomics
@desiguru: whats wrong with your numberinggggggggg
@nikhil: you are welcome. it was overdue
@indianmalang: once in a while, we can make an exception but the idea is to stick to indrajals as much as possible
@revealed: thanks
@bigfoot: you just have to ccount according to rules :-)
@templetiger: congrats
@thephantom: thanks. you know what i would have done if you had fought for some more time.grrrrrrrrrrr
@tailspin: what a name!!!!!!! :-) love it
@anonymous: thanks for pointing out. but thats what the signature of the blog says too. The idea is not to pirate.
@sunshine: why would i ever interfere with you dear sunshine :-)
@obi wan: you have to be able to decode things my friend
@gairola: that is very enterprising of you..a java program to parse and download ;-)
@sherlock: nice try
@sketchy: thanks....
@dwaipayan: i think we did fittoos!!!
@omm: haha chyawanprash!!!!!! not the sona chandi type I hope. Those who use it .. get kicked out hehe
@L1Cache: there you are...dugudugudugu
@joe: splash and dash huh?
@revealed: #150 is an awesome comic
@ashwinbaliga: welcome back mate :-)
@obi: tooooooooooo ambitious
@chackochen: you turned out to be last!!!!!!!!!! amazing

Sunshine said...

@TCP: No, I turned out to be the last ;D (I was abt help Obi with his ambitious, what you call 'a ranking catastrophe'.. but I think you made sure that won't happen :-(

Anonymous said...

Congrtulations on the 150! This was a great comic with all thrills of an action movie-- even better.. wow! Good show!

Obi Wan said...

An anonymous comment cannot possibly be last on the 150th comic :-)

Sunshine said...

You are right, Obi. :D

@Cloudy: Hmm.. :-) Let me wait for my chance to get even with you :D

chackochen said...

@sunshine: Now think again :-)

Obi Wan said...

And so should you chackochen!!!

DesiGuru said...

well, looks like i missed on 3rd or maybe 4th spot, but the race is still on for the last spot, and i will try my best to do so...

Sunshine said...

@Chakochen: And think again?! ;D

Sunshine said...

@Obi/Desi: The race is still on?! :-) Wait till the evil Zam notices this!!

Obi Wan said...

Yes, let us keep this going till HIS evil eye falls on us :-)

chackochen said...

Me last for one more time.

Sunshine said...

@Obi: This is fun :D Hee..hee..

Sunshine said...

@Chok: :D Not yet!! (I took the liberty to cut short your name. Hope you wdn't mind)

Sunshine said...

@Chack: Sorry abt the smelling pistake on my last comment :-)

Obi Wan said...

sunshine: If you continue with mishtakes like this(mis-spelling chackochen's name), you will soon awaken the sleeping 'p' in me :-)

Sunshine said...

@Obi: Whoa! Gulp! I wdn't dare.. ;D

Sketchy Self said...

What's up with this?! I thought rule no. 57(a) sub-clause MCCLIII stated clearly that once a new comic is published no races can be held on the older one! Well, since I'm here, i'm claiming last!

Revealed said...

How sneaky! A secret race in a previous post!!!! But i think i can safely claim last on this one (hehe:). He who laughs last laughs the longest;).
@sunshine: like the nickname:)

Sunshine said...

Hmm.. the race is getting more and more interesting!! More competition :D

Obi Wan said...

Let us make hay while the sun shines :-) The race continues!!!

Sunshine said...

Welcome to the secret race Sketchy and Revealed :-)

Sunshine said...

@Sketchy: There must be another sub-sub-clause. :D I'd better wait for Obi for clarifying that.

Sunshine said...

This must be the 75th comment!! :D (Provided Obi is not sending another comment before this one)

Sunshine said...

I was 75th, Yeeeehh.. !! :D

Revealed said...

@Sunshine: Congrats on the 75th:)
@Obi: Clarifications on the ruling, please.
I'm waiting for the 100th spot. Its gonna be MINE (evil gleam in eye and manic laugh). He he.

DesiGuru said...

well, the race continues... looks like 150th one is going to stay for some more time... the race to be the last one on this post!

Sunshine said...

Bah.. so much of competition for the last comment.

Sunshine said...

Thank you, Revealed. And I like that 'evil gleam' and the 'manic laugh' :D

Cloudy said...

So are we stopping at 80?

Sunshine said...

@Cloudy: I hope not! :-)

Obi Wan said...

sketchyself: You are right, Clause 57(a) sub-clause MCCLIII does clearly say that once a new comic is published no races can be held on the older one; but you neglect the fact that Clause 57(a) sub-clause MCCLIV clearly states that this rule does not apply to comics whose numbers are multiples of 50.

So unless and until the Evil Zamindar chooses to brazenly bypass and contravene the existing, well-documented laws, like General Tarakimo, we are on safe ground! So keep the race going... BINDAAS!

Cloudy said...

@Obi: Hahahahahaha!!! Well said! Keep going :)

chackochen said...

The chok is the last.

Revealed said...

@ Chok: Not yet
@Obi: Well clarified:)

chackochen said...

Well Apparantly chok is the last.

Revealed said...

@chok: AGAIN, not yet:p. You're jumping the gun here:D

Sunshine said...

I'm having the same evil grin that adorned Revealed's face sometime back!! It's really fun doing something like this right under TCP's nose ;D

Sunshine said...

@Chack: You are Chok now? ;D

Sunshine said...

Obi: I knew I could count on you for inventing..er.. clarifying the sub clauses :D

Sunshine said...

The 100th comment is just 8 comments away... I'm so tempted.. ;-) but let me try to be fair.... Aarrgh.. To be (fair) or not to be, that is the question ;D

Cloudy said...

Gotta reach 100 quickly my pals, because when the next comic is posted, this will be out of the page!!!!!

Cloudy said...

Yes Sunshine, it's very hard to be fair.... so close.. so close!

Cloudy said...

OK, important question:
Who should have the pleasure of telling the Evil Zamindar that we touched a 100?

Cloudy said...

Sorry, silly question.

Answer: The one who touches 100, of course :)

Sunshine said...

@Cloudy: That's a vaild point.. that this comic will go out of the page when the next comic is posted.. hmm.. all the more reason to be unfair, eh? ;D

Sunshine said...

I'm checking after two hours and no other comments yet.. hmm.. :-)

Revealed said...

Gosh, Cloudy, you're right. We gotta be on our toes

Revealed said...

@Sunshine: This is not the time to ponder about fair and unfair!!
N does that make..Could it make me the 100th comment????? OMGGGGG. Yippeeee

Revealed said...

I am just soo excited!!!! Does this mean I can break the news to the Evil Zam??? Woww!! Super cool. Though actually, to be fair (as Sunshine would say) I think one of you guys should do it. I can't take all the credit ;)

Obi Wan said...

Me 102nd!!! Let us complete at least 150 before informing EZ(abbr. for Evil Zamindar)!

Cloudy said...

@Revealed: Congratulations! :)

Obi, you are too ambitious.... I vote for Revealed to break it to the EZ now!!!! What say, people?

Revealed said...

I think we should try for 150. This is our chance people! Let's make a brave charge:p. I think with Sunshine around we have a really good shot at it:p

Sunshine said...

@Revealed: Congrats!! :D

(Hmm...I just stop for a moment to wonder if I shd be fair and there goes the 100th spot..!)

Sunshine said...

Try for 150 comments? ;D Well, why not?

Sunshine said...

But I share Cloudy's concern - if the EZ decided to post the next comic, this page will be gone..

Sunshine said...

And Sunshine's going to be very busy from tomorrow.. ;-( Meetings, meetings, meetings.

Sunshine said...

@Obi: How come you don't visit your blog that often, these days?

Sunshine said...

Well, with this, it'll become 110 comments :-) 40 more to go.

The Comic Project said...

YOU NUTS...SNEAKING UP on eZam!!!!!!!! grrrrrrrrrrrrr grrrrrrrrrr groooooooooooooomm

Sunshine said...

@TCP: (With a sheepish grin and an attempted innocent look) We were going to tell you, eventually..he he..

Ajay said...

Phantom - The Singh Brotherhood

Dude. Thanks a lot for this excellent classic. I just love these classics. And a superb reprint, I must say.

Please please please find the sky band and post it. This is an all time fab classic.

Note the moonstone rip off of the sky band concept in Nos. 7 & 8 and .

DesiGuru said...

Ajay, Sky Band was really good one. I think I have it, but its also in Black & White as it was in daily strips i guess.

Moonstone rip was not good, its was a bad try by them to create another story around the new generation of Sky Band.

(and i think i got the cookies?)

Cloudy said...

A bit stale, but I got 'em :)
