#296 - A classic Mandrake daily strip

It is yet another Vishu, the new year day for the people of my erstwhile state in India, called Kerala (also called God's own Country by visitors). It is also 3 years since I started handling this blog on behalf of Bala. One thing that has given me immense satisfaction is that I have been able to unearth quite a few Mandrake Sunday strips that were hitherto unavailable. Of course I have to thank Magnus Magnusson for all the color Sunday strips he has shared so selflessly over all these years.

This week I am presenting a daily strip - D058 - The Mystery of Uncle Ed  - sent to me by a Spanish friend who likes to be known as Mapanare. He even has a cover page devised for the comic, which you can see below.

On this Vishu day, which is also celebrated as Puthandu in Tamil Nadu, Baisakhi in Punjab, Ronagali Bihu in Assam and Naba Barsha in Bengal, I use this opportunity to wish all the best to all of my friends and non-friends who visit this blog.

Shower your thanks on Mapanare.



PS. Here are a few pictures of what put up for VishuKani earlier this morning
