147 (1971) The Secret Of Misty Mountains

It's S077 - The Missing Link (10 Aug 1969 - 7 Dec 1969)
Script: Lee Falk
Art: Sy Barry

The story: Colonel Worobu of the Jungle Patrol requests advice from his unknown Commander when the famous anthropologist Dr. Weeber and his daughter go missing in the Misty Mountains whilst on the verge of a "fantastic discovery".

Taking over the case, the Phantom catches up with the lost pair, completely unaware that he soon will be standing face to face with a phenomenon an injured Dr. Weeber calls "a link between ape and man"...

Note: It's first Sunday Strips in which Col Worobu appeared, however very firt time we meet with him in D106 - Rex, The Missing Heir (23 Jun 1969 -   4 Oct 1969).

 It's a cover to cover, but a fixed version. Scanned by Venkitachalam Subramanian.

Fixing panels and recovering first line of texts (almost every page, which were cut while binding) took some days. Hoping you'll enjoy as usual scan. :)

Thank you Prabhat & Venkit!

In your prior post "The Gladiator", page 12 is missing. The page 12 that you have there is really page 13. SO part of the fight between the phantom and the gladiator is missing.

Col Worubu,
I checked my physical comic with the cbr file page by page and did not see any page missing. All 30 pages are there. The panels do seem a little out of order.

Hi Venkit,

Probably a page is missing in the physical comic (not sure how only one page could be missing and not two). I compared against the old scans that I already have and one page is definitely missing. Could be a printing error in the physical copy? Let me do a comparison again and let you know.

@Colonel Worobu Pls check and let us know. Due to data lost I can't check older version.

By the way, #147 is historic issue for you. :)

Colonel Worobu on 10 September 2010 at 23:58 said...

Prabhat


I just realized that two pages are missing in this latest scan.
I will try to email the older version to you so you and Venkit can compare.

@Colonel WorobuThanks! :)

Colonel Worobu on 11 September 2010 at 02:47 said...

I sent the email. hope gmail will not crash due to the large file size. now you can play the interesting game of spotting the missing pages :o)


#147 is historical issue for me in another way. This was the very first IJC issue my parents bought for me. I started collecting IJC from this issue onwards.

Sorry about that Col & PBC. My bad. I shall fix the scans and send the corrected version ASAP.

Venkitachalam Subramanian on 11 September 2010 at 08:09 said...

PBC, check ur e-mail

Colonel Worobu on 11 September 2010 at 17:32 said...

Thank you Venkit! no need to apologize. It is I who should apologize for giving you the trouble.

PBC on 12 September 2010 at 04:26 said...

@@Venkitachalam Subramanian: & Colonel Worobu Thanks! You both are very sincere. We should be thankful to you both for C2C version of #151.

PBC on 12 September 2010 at 04:29 said...

@Colonel Worobu Wow! But, you pick nick accidental, I think.
