Wonderful! Thanks a bunch for this HQ IJC.

Thanks to our efforts in the second round, these are the very few comics that are still in Low-Res below #300.


Hopefully we will get these in Hi-Res soon.

Here are some more IJCs below not available in Hi-Res:

066 in Venkit's list I have in c2c HR 28MB file. I'm not sure who scanned it (inside covers are in Hindi)
075 (already in venkit's list)
088 (in Venkit's list also)
091 (in Venkit's list also)
100 (available as a charlton scan only with IJC front cover)
107 (in Venkit's list also)
123 & 124 are missing altogether
156 (Charlton scan with IJC cover, also in Venkit's list)

Thanks Parishi and Ajay for a great IJC..

Would it be possible to re-post the following Frew Phantom's that were posted before but have expired?

1237 - Alliance of Golden Ox
1556 - Dangerous portrait
1555 - The Murderer (Indian story)

January 7, 2014 at 7:49 AM

Colonel Worubu - I shall contact u off the list.

January 7, 2014 at 7:53 AM

The good Colonel is right about #100. It is a Charlton/GoldKey scan with IJCcover. We need a rescan of that.

January 7, 2014 at 7:57 AM

123 & 124 were the two issues that were never published by TOI, due to a strike, as I recall.

January 7, 2014 at 8:00 AM

Thanks A Lot, Parishi

Thanks to All the wonderful Collectors/Comics lovers for amazing details.

January 7, 2014 at 11:53 AM

I nearly forgot the most important:


Greetings from Strasbourg, France

January 7, 2014 at 8:01 PM

thanks for the HR scan.........

January 7, 2014 at 11:28 PM

Thanxs Parishi bhai

January 8, 2014 at 4:26 AM

> Albert Chame
> IJC 100 was released there:

Thanks Emile. I wonder how I missed this and so many other releases. I thought I kept a close watch on the IJC blogs and never missed anything. Obviously I have been lax in my vigilance :(

The links in Prabhat's blog have expired though. So it is up to Venkit to rescue me :o)

January 8, 2014 at 4:30 AM

Colonel Worobu : Wish you a very Happy New Year

Thank you Ajay. Wish you and your family and all my friends here a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year as well.

January 8, 2014 at 2:35 PM

Colonel Worobu:
>Obviously I have been lax in my vigilance :(

No, it was a difficult task to not skip a released issue.

I developed for me a software to keep tracks of them; I expanded it a bit and now I have data for each issue I entered; I may have missed some.

It is strange to found three (or more) scans at different size (MB) for the same issue; like 8MB, 12MB, 22MB and a HiRes scan archive (of course, with different download dates).

Nota: before 2002, I scanned partially some comic books to get the front cover and only the character I liked. Starting with IJC scans and that software, I was asking myself: "It must be crazy to only scan a character" ! Mind changes after some years ;-:).

Have a wonderful year all.


January 9, 2014 at 2:53 AM

Well, the comic Emile mentioned was IJC 30 and not IJC 100.
