HAPPY DEEPAVALI TO ALL READERS!!! (FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS FOR NON INDIANS)
Been Extremely busy at work and at home lately... No time to post any comics. I was also reading some stuff at CW and this whole issue of commenting has taken over the fun in reading Indrajals. I hope and expect many of you to at least say Thank You for being able to acknowledge the efforts that goes into posting a comic. I know a few who do not like to comment publicly but an email can suffice.
Regaring the download process, I do not think a password protected file will ensure comments from readers for long. People can always get it from others. Take for example, the Mandrake torrents, I would not have read these classic strips but for the comic torrents people around the world provided me access to. Since, I got these scans from a free torrent, I will make them available for folks who are currently reading and for those coming in the future... That was the intent for my blog.
The very day the comic blogs were created the comic scans were meant to be shared for having fun. If not, we should all become a dedicated private group and distribute scans to only a few privileged ones. That would mean new folks would not know existence of these scans.
I acknowledge the hardwork of scanning each and every page of a comic with no moral gain for doing that other than to preserve it being available for future generations and for any newcomers (or for oldtimers) to savor these timeless classics when time permits. I have scanned a few myself such as Pioneer Mandrake Sundays volume 3 which I got from an interlibrary loan with much difficulty. I am always in the lookout for other Mandrake comic publications. I do not know how Ajay Mishra was able to deicate so many hours for Indrajals. Hats off to him for scanning and Vineeth Abraham for providing the comics.
What I suggest is readers those who can spare time for downloading & reading, should try to contribute in some fashion or form for producing more scans of these stories. I mean, if you have access to a scanner or know someone who has and can manage to get some comics, go ahead and scan them in high quality. Does not have to be Indrajals. Any thing that interests you and think that others might enjoy reading such as news paper Mandrake Strips from collectors, comics like Amar Chitra Katha and so on....
Too much talking from me for now....Let's enjoy a King Comic
