Another Bumper Contribution by AJAY MISRA.

Ajay's dedication to share IJC scans with all doesn't need to be explained in words.

I would like to point out that while Ajays and Venkits work is extraordinary, it was Prabhat who broke the IJC bloggers tradition of posting 1 ijc every few days (except on special occasions) to almost several everyday.
I would like to think this is because Prabhat doest care if the IJCs get exhausted. If they do he will simply move to other books and comics true to the name of his blog.

Thanks to Ajay and Prabhat and also to Venkit who have been real busy. Scanning is a very tough task. I guess one should simply love scanning as much as comics to emulate these guys! Many thanks.

Grouchy's Comics on 8 March 2009 at 14:43 said...

Without wishing to offend anyone, I would like to highlight that Prabhat has to my knowledge never written about lack of comments or comments to downlaods ratio. I would like to guess it is one the main qualiies which has forged his great relationship with Ajay and now Venkit and Ajnabi and others.
Hope this continues forever.

Thank you Ajay & Prabhat! Continue the good work!

Anurag: Welcome! All contributor friends are doing wonderful job as much they can. I'm trying to share with all as soon as possible only.

The Skull Cave Treasures: Welcome buddy!:)

AJAY on 8 March 2009 at 20:20 said...

Dear Friends ,
I have still lot of stuff which all will be willing to read so waiing for all IJs to finish so that other Project can be taken . All my future scans will be timely posted .Scans which had scanned in 2003 were posted till date, despite most of them were all time with so many persons . Earlier I used to send all my scans to a group of around 50 persons , now restricted to mostly bloggers only .
Hope to happy ending of ijs with the help of Anurag, Ajnabi, Sameer,Venkit Zaheer , ICC , TPH & so many others , all are contributing in their style.


PBC on 8 March 2009 at 20:35 said...

Grouchy's Comics: Welcome! I already said about Venkit role in earler posts. :)

All friends are doing wonderful job in IJC project. About bloggers we all know. But in contribution main credits goes to Anon, Ajay (as regular contributors from since a long time), Ajnaabi (unique person always starts something new, but as see other interested take a new project, not to quite but give opportunities to others & up another projects), Anurag (new wave of Hindi IJC & other comics scan), Raj ( a wonderful combination of speed scanning & quick posting) & Venkit ( a new name but in short time filled many gaps of IJC) for these flood.

I don't care tomorrow, I'll post comics/books or not. Just enjoying the process, glad to see without scanning any comics I was able to be a factor in acceleration of IJC scanning process. This virtual popularity is not going to benefit me, but glad to find out majority is happy.

You noted me from start. It was ACK project which forced to start posting IJC too. I told about it earlier. But I’m not going to stop. I don’t drop projects which I took responsibility to complete. I wish to post & enjoy the process. The contributors & visitors are more important for me as I my blogs are public not for limited friends. This process has forced to rearrange myself. I’m traditional person, but ready to reform myself to match with healthy demands. I’m not against any discussion or posting fast or slow attitude, but feel crime to keep others scans for personal use only as these were send to me for posting. Due to not posting others start scanning & the first one’s hard work faces set back.

Who are interested to work as team, I always ready & generally take initiatives. For team work as others I also give up my earlier point of view, if majority is interested in another way. I know my friends have healthy point of view about sharing. So I’m with team. If anyone would not inform me or neglect majority or violate agreements, I’m not responsible or bound to continue on old one. There is always solution need to discuss time to time. Otherwise like dinosaurs we’ll disappeared although once earth was ruled by them, there were no match in strength & size with them. (It’s my father’s words, once he told me in childhood).

It doesn’t mean, I say to change direction in one day, but slowly and gradually we can change without any pain. :)

PBC on 8 March 2009 at 20:46 said...

AJAY: Welcome! I told only about contributors. Thank you for adding some more names (bloggers).

I'm interested in friendly ending this series first round. I say first round, because Hindi etc will follow. Some could not read Hindi & some English. As English version project is near to be completed. Later discussion (as once Sagnik offered & confusion created, discussion turned into another way) & others things could follow, but as contributors are interested & came find some time. Let finish first round friendly & continue other IJC or other projects friendly.

jyothiprakash on 8 March 2009 at 21:34 said...

Wow another phantom "Pheast"! I cant help but get misty eyed, reading all comments, which shot me back in time, to that fateful day in 2005, when, for the umpteenth time, without any hopes I opened google and typed in Phantom indrajal....Back to same old wiki page...but wait, what was that at the end...Among the links there was something called "TCP". I rejoiced for two days straight, downloading everything from the TCP blog. There was a deja vu of sorts, when I discovered the ACK blog (one of its kind), since I had stopped blog hopping owing to bandwidth restrictions.
Those were just the beginnings of an amazing journey. I was happy with my weekly dose of IJC's but never expected that the collection would one day be complete (And was not prepared for life after IJC :-))....But thanks to the single minded devotion of contributors like Ajay, Venkit, Anon, Ajnaabi and Blogger-cum-contributors such as Prabhat, Sameer, TCP, Anupam, Grouchy...we seem to be getting there. What is also amazing about the whole process is, the fact that none of the contributors or bloggers craves for credit or attention (And you all treat the project as something to work together on)! Hats off to you guys! I remember my travails as a kid, when friends would show off their collections (And how I would shamelessly try to butter them up in an attempt to coax them into lending their comix, and I cannot believe how mean some of them were....They wouldn't let me read, even in their houses - With some ridiculous excuse like, "could you please put the books back in the shelf, I intend to preserve my collection, too much handling might spoil them"... My parents were dead against comics and considered them a waste of time!). Those memories are almost completely erased thanks to this amazing soft collection of comics. You guys are unforgettable!

Venkitachalam Subramanian on 8 March 2009 at 21:49 said...

Wow! Ajay, man u r the best. It has been nice co-ordinating scanning of comics with you, in our progress towards the magical figure of 803 (805 less the two comics which were not published).

Keep up the good work. I have a couple of corrections to point out

V24N20 was reprint of 233
V24N23 was reprint of 211

Not that it matters greatly to many, but then I maintain a spreadsheet, where I put in all these sort of details, as a database. So when I put in the correct numbers, I thought I would just shre the same.

Good job, Prabhat.

PBC on 8 March 2009 at 21:50 said...

JP: Welcome! A little correction, I’m only a blogger. Once wished to scan some, but due to continues flow of new comics & increasing number of contributors, I dropped idea to scan. After all these are for friends, together we are more productive than individuals.

I agree with you opinion, this team effort had made all this possible. Someone had started scanning, TCP started posting and all started. I find these only in August 2007 while searching Asterix & Tintin physical comics. Some of Tintin were not published in India, I was searching a site where I could bought all ( from one place & lowest price. Till that day, I lost hope to see all IJC at least in electronic form.

In this journey all helped, but two name are important- first among equals - Ajay as regular contributor & TCP as first IJC blog posting regularly for two years. I understand what problem he was facing in posting when he was alone. I such bulk posting, I hardly find time to make posts in holidays only. And these are flowing & flowing……

PBC on 8 March 2009 at 21:56 said...

Venkit: Thanks for information, I'm going to correct. I mentioned these from my list. Or just a printing mistake at the time of renaming. As you are genuine source, just going to correct without checking.

It should always be like Reagan said - Trust but verify:-))

TheBlabberingBard on 8 March 2009 at 22:21 said...

I see that a lot of other people have already said what I wanted to say..Prabhat you work with the principle of abundance...the more you post the more is still out there to be posted!!! Thanks for making the paradigm shift in posting of IJC's

TheBlabberingBard on 8 March 2009 at 22:22 said...

..and yes when I say thanks to Prabhat i also mean to say thanks to Ajay Mishra and all other contributors to this blog

PBC on 8 March 2009 at 22:46 said...

venkitachalam: PM Putin (foromer president of Russia) says the same in only in other words a old Russian Proverb.
Doberiyai, nu proveriai.
"Trust but verify"


Here is link pls check:

"Russian proverbs gained popularity in the West thanks to Ronald Reagan, who supposedly was a fan of Russian folklore. Russians have possibly thousands of proverbs. Below is a very short list of Russian proverbs with translation."

Ajnaabi said...

Great Superb Bumper Post Prabhat. 11 IJC @ 1 go.......
WOW. Thanks Ajay.
Hope mediafire doesn't say "U have reached ur download limit DUDE" tonight (In my case that's possible too... ha ha)

PBC on 9 March 2009 at 02:07 said...

Ajnaabi: ALso hope. :)))

Srikanth said...

Ajay, thanks a lot! Only a few months ago we had over 400 to go! Today that figure is down to 141 (excluding repeats). This is a unique effort - people living in several time zones, countries etc. all coming together to get this done - with nothing to gain monetarily!

Thanks to Prabhat for his boundless enthusiasm and energy. I cannot believe that we are this close to completion of the English IJC collection!!

Yes, we will have other projects after this (I own the Zorro project, since that is the smallest - only 25 comics or so!) There are many rare, out-of-print ACKs. Another suggestion is Folktales of India (from Sterling Publishers I believe, but it is out of print). We will always have something to do if Prabhat is around to inspire us!

PBC on 9 March 2009 at 05:07 said...

Srikanth: Welcome! I think, all people who inspired me will happiness like to see these. We can continue Zorro here & Folktales of India (from Sterling Publishers) at history & mythology blog. I never read before Folktales of India (from Sterling Publishers). I only today come to know about existence of this series.

great work especially talking about HQ scans.

is it possible to get scans in HQ (those that are not yet) ?

As an example:

Indrajal v24-23
The Phantom
The Mystery of the Haunted Castle
(Reprinted version of 211)

But there are many, many others not in HQ.


PBC on 9 March 2009 at 14:26 said...

Anonymous: Welcome! Due to internet speed problem by contributor, many scans came in this form. We discussed about with Ajay. In my India visit I will collect all on DVD & later post. There are real chances to get HQ SCANS.
