Your favorite comics

Post  Guest on Tue Oct 09, 2012 7:36 pm

Growing up in India i read many comics as a child. The usual fare--Tintin and Asterix, Archie comics, Amar Chitra Katha, Tinkle (Shikari Shambhu, Supandi, etc), Diamond comics (Chacha Chaudhary and Sabu, Fauladi Singh, etc.) but my favourites were the Mandrake and Phantom comics which were originally written by the American Lee Falk and reprinted by Indrajal Comics. It was a sad day for me when Indrajal Comics shut down. Fortunately, Hermes Press has started re-printing all the original Phantom comics and they are available from amazon.com at a reasonable rate. Hope they do the same for Mandrake.

So, as a child, what were your favorite comics ?

i used to typically get the tintin and asterix comics from the local lending libraries/book clubs or else would purchase them second hand.
