#102: D042 The Brass Monkey Dec 16th, 1946 to March 22, 1947

UPDATE: Comicrazee has provided me a new cover page for this story.
Thanks a lot and appreciate the quick turn around. Amazing work indeed....


Here is a very good daily, thanks to Tom Williams and Myron for providing me the scans.
Apparently no one got all the answers to the puzzle. Am posting the answers provided by Comic crazy. Got an opportunity to talk to him. Had a great time.
Mandrake and the Chief are baffled...interesting story enjoy

Thanks MTM, I was waiting for the completed crossword to be posted by you. I haven't come across Narda's father and Mandrake's nephew in any of the comics that I read. If you have some of those, please do post.

It had been quiet lately with IJC blogs, so good of you to break the monotony.


- Ruchi.

Thanks !! A Great story, its similar to clay camel series in quite a few aspects.

Sagnik, as an expert researcher, may like to throw some more light on the subject

Thanks CC & Thnx to MTM for posting it!:-)
I've read this classic in the last year & was completely thrilled...by 'charming-yet-nasty' Brass Money - 'daughter' of the Master of disguise:Clay camel!!!

TRIVIA: In this old tale of 1947,it has been shown that CLAY was dead in Jail n thus his daughter wanna take a revenge on Mandrake...but later in 1970 ,C.Camel made a return(D145:Ijc #153) i.e. he was pretty alive in those years!!!!

Anyway,this is a must read for ALL Man-Fans! :-)

Oh wow!!! Thanks a lot, Bala. This sounds very interesting! Karma's dad was the one that stumped me in that crossword - which comic did he feature in?

Prabhat said...

Pls post in near future comics or strip where the father of Karma was introduced. Thanks to Comic crazy for interesting puzzle. Hope it’s a new beginning not the end, I will like to take a chance again.
