It is the IJC version of Sunday strip S154 The Central Galaxy which ran from 09-30-1984 to 06-08-1986. Script: Lee Falk Artist: Fred Fredericks. Unfortunately it was heavily edited to fit in the IJC comic book format.

IJC V21N33-1984 ThePhantom Tryst With Destiny

This year is the 50th anniversary of the spacewalk. Commander Alexey Leonov spent 12 minutes and 9 seconds outside his space vehicle Voskhod 2 on March 18, 1965, connected by a 3.5 meter tether. This was soon followed on June 3, 1965 by the first American to do the spacewalk, when Ed White spent more than 23 minutes outside his vehicle the Gemini 4, connected by a 8 meter tether.

So what better story to present, than a Phantom comic, in which an astronaut circles around the moon  and returns only to be kidnapped by pirates in the middle of Africa. How the Phantom rescues the astronaut is a story told in inimitable Lee Falk style.

Unfortunately, this story came out in Indrajal Comics during a period when they had some of the worst cover pictures in their history. The story was also heavily edited.





















This is an adaptation of S061 (The Astronaut and the Pirates) which ran for 28 Sundays between 11-04-1962 and 05-12-1963. The first panel looked like this:

On a side-note, this was first printed as IJC 025 in 1966 and it seemed to have followed the original strip better.

V23N46 - The Strange Banquet

It's IJC version of D146 Narda And The Cats (03-08-71 to 05-29-71) : Script: Lee Falk Artist: Fred Fredericks. There is a very small version (7MB) doing the rounds.

I am sure that anyone that is a parent of a cat, will relate to this story  about the mysterious ways of cats.





















The first panel in the Daily Strip looks like this.

Well, here is IJC Vol 23 No 29 called "The Killer Breed". This contains the first part of a Mandrake story by that name, that was seemingly an adaptation of Daily strip no 188, as per Xanadu.
