Indrajal Comics was a series launched by the publisher of The Times of India, Bennet, Coleman & Co in March 1964. The first 32 issues contained Lee Falk’s The Phantom stories, but thereafter, the title alternated between various King Features characters, including Lee Falk’s Mandrake, Alex Raymond’s Flash Gordon, Rip Kirby and Phil Corrigan, Roy Crane’s Buz Sawyer, Allen Saunders’ Mike Nomad, Kerry Drake, and Steve Dowling’s Garth. Later it also published Bahadur, an Indian comic hero created by Aabid Surti.

 

 

plaatje3In March 1964, the publisher of The Times of India, Bennet, Coleman & Co., launched a new series called Indrajal Comics. The first 32 issues contained “The Phantom” stories, but thereafter, the title alternated between various King Features characters, including Mandrake, Flash Gordon, Mike Nomad and Buz Sawyer, as well as the Publishers Syndicate character Kerry Drake. In 1976, the distinctly Indian character, Bahadur, joined the rotation. Stories involving “The Phantom,” Flash Gordon and Mandrake emphasized their roles as heroes, with special powers, talents or sci-fi tools. The remaining characters in the Indrajal universe played out more conventional detective and crime stories.

    but sometimes size of panels were expanded or shorten or dropped also.
    Some of those contains 3 Indian Heroes (Bahadur, Dara and Aditya).

  2. Thank you so much for making these comics available. It brings back so many fond memories!

    In the Phantom comics collection, I noticed that part 2 of the story “Embers of Fury” is missing. If you have it available, could you please upload?

  4. I have an old Indrajal issue containing only a few pages (without the cover pages) featuring the Phantom. This talks about young “Kit and Caribo” who reached Americas before other Europeans. Kit was a cabin boy in Columbus’ ship. The following links show the artwork connected with that issue; it’s in Bengali language. Can anyone tell which is it’s English equivalent? And the link for that?


    Thanks.

  5. Hello,
    You have given me my childhood memories back. And at middle age and far away from home, this is like the lifeblood to me.
    Thank you so much for preserving this and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

      • Hi,
        Most of my favourite childhood heroes are seen resurrected through this Indrajal and British Comics platforms, like Phantom, Mandrake, Flash Gordon, Rip Kirby, X-9 (Phil Corrigan), Buz Sawyer, British heroes like Steel Claw, Barracuda, Johnny Nero, Spider, John Havoc, other heroes like Johnny Hazard, Modesty Blaise etc. I am finding a good collection of all the above except Johnny Hazard. Wondering if there are any other links connected to a good collection of Hazard.

  6. Thanks. You are right Boutje. I have seen them, but they are too few in numbers. Hoping someone adds more of this action hero, Johny Hazard in future. Similarly for British Lion hero, Sexton Blake, we find only one, that too a compilation work.

  7. Thank you so much for this. I collected all Indrajals from 1975 (when I was 5) till they stopped. Have them all with me even today. Reading them on my Tablet again took me back to the wonder years. Really appreciate the efforts.
