#292 - S179 The Invisible Person (08-08-99 to 10-10-99)

I bring you a Mandrake Sunday strip here. This was one of the 4 or 5 Daily strips which were tweaked in the 90s to come forth as Sunday strips. I have already presented some others in this very blog.

This one is S179 The Invisible Person and the first panel starts off like this:











This also came as a daily strip called D184 Little Man (11-14-83 to 03-03-84). The first panel looked like this : (Thanks to my friend Don Ladhams for this one)







For those of you who also follow the history of Mandrake comics in India, this came as Vol 22 No 29 in Indrajal Comics during the week of July 21 - 27 1985 as "The Invisible Thief". I had shared this comic in Prabhat's wonderful blog Indrajal Online. The first panel in that was almost the same as the Daily strip.




















It is just 8 more to hit 300 in this blog. I am hoping that Balaji is getting ready with some kind of bumper post for that landmark.

So please download the Sunday strip here.

Enjoy,

Venkitachalam
