Wilson McCoy (1902 - 1961, USA)

Wilson McCoy studied at the Art Institute of Chicago, The American Academy, and the St. Louis School of Fine Arts, where he later served on the faculty. Working as a commercial artist, he made paintings for Liberty Magazine covers, calendars, prints, pin-ups and advertisements for major companies. When his friend Ray Moore served in the military during WWII, McCoy took over the responsibilities of illustrating the syndicated newspaper strip, 'The Phantom'. His wife, Dorothy, did the lettering. McCoy continued drawing the strip until his death in 1961, after which it was continued by Bill Lignante for a short while, and then Sy Barry. Wilson McCoy's popular work on 'The Phantom' has been featured in comics and continues to be reprinted today.

Bill Lignante (b. 20/3/1925, USA)

Bill Lignante is a longtime artist of 'Phantom' comic books. After a three-year-stint in the US Navy, he enrolled at the Pratt Institute in New York. Upon graduation, he began his career as a cartoonist, starting with 'Ozark Ike' and later 'Let's Explore Your Mind'. Lignante's first involvement with Lee Falk's 'The Phantom' was finishing a daily strip after Wilson McCoy's death in 1961. He then did the Sunday comic for a while, before becoming the main artist of the Gold Key and King comic books featuring the character. Lignante had also worked on animated cartoons for Hanna-Barbera. In 1968, he settled in California and began a career as a courtroom artist for ABC Network News.

It's an unrecoverable loss for all Indrajal fans.

His famous works: IJC logo, several Indrajal covers (starting from #1), illustration of Bahadur.

It's opinion of major part of IJC fans that the his COVERS made IJC so popular.

Hello friends! Munna Bhai is back. :)

I was expecting to get more new scans in last 4 months as simple visitor. Seems, all are busy, only I'm free. Just kidding. :)))

Going to import here, all my IJC posts from books and comics blog (and links shall be removed) - for your convenience. Mostly IJC posted by me were cover to cover. Number of IJC is added in every post as tag, it'll be helpful in search.

Before this post, this blog had
113 -English IJC,
4 - in English & Hindi both; and
4 in Hindi only.
There are approx 300+ IJC posted at BC blog . So almost half work will be done.

For me and many my friends, only first round is over. All blogs which provided at least one new IJC are very few, who are not aware about such blogs, can check my blogroll - and download available versions.

Till today, my plan is regularly posting better & new scans only.

Wish to know your opinion:

1. Is their need to add standard resolution link in future? HQ links of future posts are 40-60 MB.

2. Have a look at colour of followings. Which type of pages you'd like to get in future?

All of us read this Indrajal, time to enjoy cover to cover absolutely new version.

003-1964-Phantom- The Challenge of Cannibals- COMPLETE-HR

003-1964-Phantom- The Challenge of Cannibals- COMPLETE-SR

Now all 803 English Indrajal Comics are online. Last 6 English Indrajal Comics - #272, #278, #V21N07, #V25N32, #V25N41,#V26N34

This party is brought to you by Ajay Misra, Venkitachalam Subramanian, Ajnaabi, Mr. Walker and Shekhar Chandra.

I’m a medium only.

Indrajal Digital posting period: 17th April 2005 to 24 july 2009, 4 years & 102 days, i.e. 1562 days. And, this post is making all 803 English Indrajal online. Hurrah!

I had a dream to collect all Indrajal Comics since childhood when I read first Indrajal (#295). I started waiting next one from the day I got current issue. At that town, there was no chance to buy old issues. The only way to read old issues was collection of elder brothers of my friends.

With time I collected almost all issues starting from #295. But major part of collection is lost now. Never thought, I could see these again. When I found these at net in Aug 2007 in digital form, couldn’t believe. Where I'm living at present, finding English or Hindi comic is almost impossible.

Although B&C blog was launched on 18 Nov 2007, I started Indrajal posting since 14 May 2008, when again deficit of scans were recreated after regular flow by several blogs. Motivating factors were contributors and thousands Indrajal fan like me, who wish to collect or read.

And terror of PBC, later Munna Bhai started. Several times, I received letters from hardcore fans that they could not able to read due to floods of IJC, however always requested to continue.

Believe, time and tide never wait for anyone. There are many friendly persons who have nice collections, but can’t scan and share due to lack of time or any other reason. When friends are in mood to scan and share, why not try to achieve the target. When I started posting IJC, couldn’t guess in next 14-15 months we’d have all missing Indrajal. Ajnaabi, Ajay, Anurag, Anon (Indrajal), Raj, Venkit, Shekhar’s father and Shekhar are those friends who made it possible. KK & Mr. Walker (a new blogger) had supported with missing cover pages. Prashant Gupta & Vikram Singh are two contributors which scans I received through Ajay.

Two words about my Indrajal contributors:

• Ajnaabi: Amazing man who concentrates at missing and neglected, but good comics. Whenever he finds there is need to help always comes forward. I had started posting Indrajal with his 22 scans as the first post. Major parts of less popular heroes of Indrajal Comics are digitalized by him.

• Ajay Misra: His contribution to digital Indrajal is unmatchable. The major part of Indrajal at net are his contributions. Unmatchable speed of scanning. Helped with other scans – Deshi Guru, Shekhar’s father, Shekhar, Prashant Gupta & Vikram. Venkit says him, 'Vishm Pitamah'.

• Anurag: Most probably he has the biggest collection of Hindi Indrajal - 770 and many more English Indrajal and other Hindi comics. Whenever I request, he always finds time to scan in his busy schedule. His son is one of the top rank junior tennis players of India, he regularly travels with him.

• Anon (Indrajal): Wonderful person, even doesn’t tell me real identity. Contacted and in very short period flooded Indrajal. Encouraged me to start using Photoshop and guided in early stage.

• Raj: Nice cool person, started scanning & posting silently. First I found his scans at esnips, later found his blog. Whenever he has time scans and quickly posts. Always ready to help.

• Venkit: A new star who came in the light few months ago. Thanks to him, the major part of Bahadur comics is available as e-comics. Last Indrajal #V27N08 was scanned by him.

• Shekhar’s father: He is 80+, earlier helped with #16 Indrajal Comics, #58 cover page using a digital camera and this time, the cover of Mahabharata part 1.

• Shekhar: Last 2 scans we were expecting from another person, but due to unexpected reasons, didn't get on time. Shekhar ji (who has all Indrajal) had visited from USA 2 days ago. Ajay explained the situation, without a second thought he agreed to help. Yesterday, as he visited home, took photos and sent. Words are not enough to thank him. Ajnaabi finished editing these 2 Indrajal, 4.30 A.M. morning today.

• Mr. Walker: Came to know about missing covers of Mahabharata part1, quickly contributed.

• KK: Provided missing English cover pages of #V24N38, we were searching since a long time.

This blog exists since last 69 days. Contains 117 English and 6 Hindi. It’s important to note that 32 out of 117 were posted at Grouchy’s Comics blog. For new visitors, I put here with his permission when he removed from his blog.

I afraid to count how many Indrajal posted at B&C blog. Started posting Indrajal 1 year, 2 month and 10 days ago, i.e. 484 days only.

Till today I hasn't scanned any comics. Neither all Indrajal are not posted by me nor had I started posting. I’m a late comer, what I observed or got information from others, feel need to mention some important names:

• TCP: The pioneer IJC blogger, amazing combination of quality & frequency.

• Vineeth Abraham, who just gave early edition of 100+ Indrajal Comics physical copies to Ajay in the very first meeting, which later we read as Ajay’s scan.

• Deshi Guru, contributor of Indrajal Comics and #1 to #5 Hindi Indrajal covers.

• ER Bhoopthy: person who has scanned #1 Indrajal Comics.

If I had missed any name, let me know, I’ll add. Very thankful to all known and unknown persons who scanned or posted even single new Indrajal.

There are several bloggers who played important role in English Indrajal posting, some had posted in other languages, and it has encouraged English bloggers, at least me certainly.

*** Actually Groughy Comics was 11th blogger which provided 35-40 English Indrajal at this platform. 32 out of 117 posted here, were available at Grouchy’s Comics blog.

And finally, the visitors, Janta Janardan. It’s such a barometer which not only gave information about interest, but always tell us, we were not only few persons who were interested.

Thanks friends! It was a collective project, all participated, visitors, bloggers & contributors.

There is Russian proverb:

• Не име́й сто рубле́й, а име́й сто друзе́й.
• Transliteration: Ne imey sto rubley, a imey sto druzey.
• Translation: Don't have a hundred rubles, but have a hundred friends.

I'm such a lucky person, have many friends. Whenever I need, God sends one more.

272- Cover by Shekhar’s father, 4 cover pages by Mr. Walker, all the rest pages by Ajnaabi.
278- All work by Ajnaabi
V21N07- Scanned by Ajay
V25N32 – Photos by Shekhar Chandra, edited by Ajnaabi
V25N41- All work by Venkitachalam Subramanian
V26N34 -Photos by Shekhar Chandra, edited by Ajnaabi

Which comic is 800th and which is 803th, how one oould be chosen. Without 799th - 800th could not be reached. It’s a collective effort and all deserve these landmark places.

Proudly announcing first round of digital Indrajal posting has been closed.

First round? Many which are available in low resolution, will be rescanned. That's why.

Next post: English Indrajal covers. I was going to post in this post, however many covers need repairing, working in this direction.

After an end, a new life begins. So, keep visiting. Not saying Good bye, до свидания (do svidánija) - See you soon!

V22N46 - The Ghost's Fury (Post 2)

It's my 1st post at THE RETURN OF INDRAJAL COMICS!!!

Few weeks ago, when I was searching this Indrajal in English Mr. Walker had promised to send me instead of posting at his own blog which he was planning to launch, this one, and sent me this Indrajal Comics. Thanks, buddy!

As he is busy with his exams, I decided to post this one at his blog, not mine, to encourage this selfless Youngman. Our goal was to collect all Indrajal, not posting all in own blog. There are limited blogs, visitors can take a look. Isn’t it?

I’m hoping, he’ll play very important role in 2nd round posting Indrajal Comics – for me, it’s not reposting old scans, but new, better and complete version. Most of us know that there are several Indrajal which need rescanning.

It's first Indrajal Comics scanned by 'Mr. Walker'. I'm glad to find out, the show is going on. We are near to complete collection and second round of Indrajal Posting already started, better versions are coming online.

At present in the collection of this fan, there are approx 640 Indrajal Comics. Hoping someday he’ll have all 803 Indrajal Comics.

Let friendship, harmony, selflessness, love and honour for each other - win.

P.S. (April 2010):  Although we proposed a joint blog & decided to lay foundation of this unique blog  (Indrajal Online) later . May be this post was a turning point. Even today I can't believe, there are so many IJC bloggers together here. Thanks Mr. Walker, thanks friends!

V22N46 - The Ghost's Fury (Post 1)

It is originally posted at Indrajal Comics - Countdown Continues
It's first Indrajal Comics scanned by 'Mr. Walker'. I'm glad to find out, the show is going on. We are near to complete collection and second round of Indrajal Posting already started, better versions are coming online.

Mr.Walker was planning to launch a blog for Bengali, English and Hindi Indrajal, however he decided to contribute his first scans me. Thanks!

It was such a pleasant surprise for me, I waited some days to post him first. As I come to know now he is busy with his exams and posted first Bengali Indrajal- posting link not here, but at his blog: walkerindrajal.blogspot.com

This version contains all pages.

It was another pleasant surprise for me that this fan has started reading Indrajal when it was out of print and able to collect a lot. Now you can guess how young he's. Really, there are Indrajal fans of all age group.

At present in his collection, there are approx 640+ Indrajal Comics. Hoping someday he'll have all 803 Indrajal Comics and all will support & help him.
