Posting this feedback of first 48 hours download of these files. It's shows clearly there is healthy balance in standard & high resolution downloads. Two links are not only serving all friends, but will help us to avoid double labour in future rescanning, reposting. It's my opinion.

Thanks a lot for you & Ajay for scanning so many Indrajals in such a short time. Does he have a life? Where does he find the time keeping a full time job and family commitments. Amazing really

Venkitachalam Subramanian: Welcome! :)

Phantom And Mandrake Fan: Ajay’s part in sharing all IJC is amazing. Without his active support, I even don’t amazing this project was ever completed, if completed not earlier than 2020. Hope Bhabhi ji will forgive us & whenever will meet her should say thanks for her tolerance, her support to Ajay.

As well as we should be thankful to Parishi (his daughter) & Divish (his son) for actively participation in sending scans to us.
Parshi, a wonder kid, has started a blog, parishi26.blogspot.com, hope many will encourage her.

Venkit:
Any chances of the pending Bahadur's being posted anytime soon? As per Srikanth's statistics, they account for the highest number of pending IJC's :(

Venkitachalam Subramanian on 27 March 2009 at 00:14 said...

Don't worry! I am on it. The :( will soon turn into :)

Satty said...

Hurray! Three cheers for you and the rest of the team :o)

Dear Ajay and Prabhat
Thanks very much for the latest post. I am now reading Indrajal comics at an advanced age which I had missed when I was a teenager
Since the last few months Venkit, Ajay and Prabhat have certainly turned me this way :)
Thanks and Regards

I agree with you Prabhat, having two links for each comics with better versions, is good, as people with the necessary bandwidth can choose their choice. As for me, I prefer to download the higher quality one, even if it takes time, as its going to remain on my collection for a long time.

Thanks for another comics, and also thanks to Ajay.

You guys rock, keep going.

Thanks for sharing all these HQ scans.

Talking about HQ scans: yes, we need more HQ scans. Take as an example:

Indrajal Comics 068 - Terror from Outer Space
its archive weight a mere 3.7MB; so a low res.

LR is good to get an eye on a story, but to really enjoy a story, HQ scan is better.

And reduction to small res is easy to do (some already share only LowRes scans).

Also, some archive miss the front cover; I can’t even know the release date of some Indrajal because it is not printed on the front cover and the advertising page (where the date is also printed) is not present in the archive.

Did I talk about the file name ?

I spend tons of time to give some file names like “Indrajal_068-00.jpg” instead of 000.jpg.

At last, I do not understand why people use a destructive image file container (jpg) instead of the non-destructive image file container (png). To understand what I wrote, use the magnifyer tool on text (especially on LQ scans, but this occured also on HQ Scans) and watch the buzz around the text.

Keep going the good work (sharing).

Thanks a lot!

Anonymous: Good points. My 2 cents:
1. From the statistics, it seems there are a lot of people with low bandwidth connections who depend on Lo-Res. Also it is slower to load Hi-Res on older machines with slower hard disks. To convert hi-res to lo-res, they need to a. download the hi-res, b. unzip c. convert to lo-res using a utility (they need to download and install first) d. zip e. rename to cbr. Too much hassle?

2. Reg. lossy vs. lossless the simple answer is Gonvisor does not support PNGs and this is what a lot of people use to read comics.

3. Once we are done with the IJC project I intend to go through everyone and create an index of missing covers, pages etc.
4. Reg. file names of the image files, as long as I am using Gonvisor and the file names are in ascending order there is no problem. IMO the bigger problem is the name of the cbr itself. A good naming convention should:

a. let you sort in chronological order (meaning we need year and/or serial number
b. give information about the content (meaning title of comic+ hero)
c. also tell you the type of comic (IJC, ACK etc.)
d. let you search for something quickly.

My preferred convention is
IJC-nnn-Title-Hero-(year)
where nnn is the serial number issued by the publisher.

This way I can search (using Windows search) by hero, find out when a comic was published and sort in chronological order as IJC's serial numbers are indeed sequential. This will not work with ACKs because their numbering system is inconsistent. I would go with
ACK-year-nnn-Title

This way when I sort by title all the comics from a given year will be together. Yes, if the publisher's numbering system changed during that year we would still have a problem. Perhaps we can do our own numbering and have something like this:

ACK-year-sss-nnn-Title

where sss is the serial number of the comic issued in that year prefixed with leading zeros where necessary.

For what it is worth, my personal preference is not to use zips or rars at all (let alone Flash!) and rename everything to cbr or cbz. This way I believe you can go to the next comic without exiting the program using Gonvisor.

Again, once the IJC or ACK project is done I intend to burn a couple of DVDs with the right names and forward to Prabhat so he can upload if he wishes.

I know I may be taking this too seriously-can't be cured I guess :)

Oops! The newer versions of Gonvisor apparently supports png files - my bad! So the only reasons (excuse?) against using pngs are scanner capabilities, backward compatibility and the possibility that PNG MAY result in larger file sizes. See

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portable_Network_Graphics#Comparison_with_JPEG




For the record, I always download HQs.
