#268 - S156_TheKraken_(11-23-1986_to_07-12-1987)

Well this was the first episode in the Kraken series. There are many  mixed versions available  in the Net of this story, but here I am posting the complete story with all panels in Black and White. This story was reprinted in IJC as the first story in V25N14 & V25N15 in 1988 called "The Undersea Killer Monster".

Usually, I put the first panel as the tease picture, but this time I am deviating and the reason is quite obvious.











What could be more wonderful than seeing Narda reclining in all her splendor!

I also had a full color "complete" version of this. But when I compared that with the above version, I did see that the panels were not complete. I am putting out the above panel in the color version for your enjoyment. Hee, hee. Now you get to see Narda in color, in the same pose!














Of course it goes without saying that a major part of the color strips in this collection came from Magnus Magnusson.

Thanks a lot Venkit ji and Magnus Magnusson for curvaceous beauty Narda and for strip.

@Vishal: In your excitement,you wrongly credited mag & venk for Narda's delightful curves ;o) as Mr.Fredricks should be credited for that(and so many other beauties)..ok,bro??

Thanks, Venkit for the strip.

Also thanks to Magnus

Usually we don't need those 2 left panels as those are drop-panels anyway,but sometime if you don't read those,stories would seem bit jumpy...like you need to read the 1st panel of the above strip where Karma asked Narda about her view on Kraken,but you don't need to read the 2nd-left one for continuity...in Indrajal we got exactly what a reader needs i.e. those 5 panels...

Is there a MF version of the color version?

@Deathphoneix - It will be a little while, but it will be there. If I knew of a place where I could find it complete, I would not spend my time hunting for strips in libraries!!

HojO said...

I have S184 that is 2-strip short i.e has 17 sundays!Hopefully will get the missing ones someday! :)

Venkitachalam Subramanian said...

I have the 17 strips in color and the 2 missing strips in B/W. It will be posted in its time.

thank you. always enjoy downloading mandrake from you every weekend. keep the good work

Getting all strips in color is good for collection/reading purpose but for hard-copy collection B/W is the best as that way you will get strips on paper in much cheaper rate!

So will request you to post the b/w counterparts of the color strips,if you have both!
