Good work Anupam bhai

Hi Anupam bro, good to see that you are trying to create a listing for Prabhat comics. Well, a minor correction needs to be done in issue # 31, ie, it is of Tiger Series and 'Misc'. And to contribute, i have 2 of Prabhat comics and from that i was able to collect the following information. Some of the issue numbers were directly given while others are probable. Following is the list :

116 Lal Bhujakkar Aur Saanp Ka Nyay (Lal Bhujakkar)

313 Nanaji Aur Nakli Reech (Nanaji)
314 Tiger Aur Ankh Ka Inteqaam (Tiger)
315 Lal Bhujhakkar Aur Raj Shadyantra (Lal Bhujakkar)
316 Luv Kush
317 Rajkumari Ki Pariksha
318 Kani Kubdi Ka Koda

319 Nanaji Aur Lambi Naak (Nanaji)
320 Tiger aur Kiraye Ke Hatryare (Tiger)
321 Lal Bhujakkar Aur Choro Ka Sardar (Lal Bhujakkar)
322 Lalach Ka Phal
323 Nakli Chehra
324 Panchava Chor

Probably 406 400 Nanaji Aur Ando Ki Kheti (Nanaji)
Probably 406 401 Var Ki Khoj
Probably 406 402 Antriksh Ka Danav
Probably 406 403 Lal Bhujakkar Aur Kile Ki Rani (Lal Bhujakkar)
Confirm 404 Mahabali Bhoochal Aur Sooraj Ke Upasak (Mahabali Bhoochaal)
Probably 406 405 Shankar Aur Daulat Ki Loot (Shankar)

Probably 406 Nanaji Aur Surmedani (Nanaji)
Probably 406 407 Ajaye Rajkumar
Probably 406 408 Antriksh Ka Pishach
Probably 406 409 Lotri Ka Khooni Ticket
Probably 406 410 Mahabali Bhoochaal Aur Chandan Ke Lutere (Mahabali Bhoochaal)
Probably 406 411 Shankar Aur Akhri Vasiyat (Shankar)

Also, there is something i have noticed, dont know people know or not, 'Prabhat Chitrakatha' was later on either renamed as 'Chunnu comics' or it was started again with the name Chunnu comics after closure of Prabhat. We can see this from the fact that Prabhat's artist, story writers and editor are the same people involved in Chunnu comics. And even some characters of Prabhat like Lal Bhujhakkar and Tiger were used in Chunnu comics.

Anupam said...

Prateek - Thanks for the inspiring comment. Keep coming and if you have any Prabhat, please share.

Aby - - thanks a lot bro. This kind of work needs a lot of helping hands. I am glad that you come forward to help me. Its not possible that a single person would have all the comics, or can gather information all by himself. I really need all the comics lover and collectors to come forward to help me create this database, not only of Prabhat but of all the comics.

meanwhile, about the mistake in Issue #31. Actually issue #30 and #31 have interchanged in series. As you can see the #30 says it tiger comics. I am changing that.

About the contribution. Thanks for the share again. Have entered in my personal database. Would include in the future posts.

Hope to hear from you soon...

Anupam said...

Aby - About Chunnu Comics, you are right, it was the re-venture of Prabhat Chitrakatha.

Also I have come across with one more comic publication who did the same. It was Goyal Comics which later comeback as Roshani Comics.

Rafiq Raja said...

Amazing work Anupam, and thanks to Aby for filling in with his list. Amazed to know that this comic series ran for near 500 issues, and not much known on the online comics world.

Looking forward for the complete list.

Anupam said...

Rafiq - Thanks Brother. Its a real pity that yester years' a lot of publishers and their published comics are almost lost, forgotten and extinct to an extent.

Otherwise, a long ran publication like Prabhat would not have been that much unknown to world. Its my humble try, would post some info on the publication along with the characters and cover gallary. Please wait...

About the complete list, I really don't have that much hope, but wish atleast 75% of it would have been completed. That would still be great if not the Best.

AJAY said...

Anupam , know one person who has all Manoj Chitra Katha, Prabhat , Nutan etc , will ask him to provide required help . Normally he does not come on net , will send you his emal id too so that you can directly write to him .

Hi Anupam bro, well its new info for me that Goyal comics was also started again with the nam Roshani comics. I hav never heard of that before. On the same lines i know of one moe publication ie Radha comics, which i think was started again as Golden Comics, although it had different characters but one of the comics did mention that Superheroes like 'Shaktiputra' and 'Mahakaal' are on leave so they have another hero 'Black Death' better than those.
Regarding Prabhat comics i found that Prabhat comics issues were later also re-released under Chunnu comics. Yesterday i came across another Chunnu comics issue that has 'Bhoochaal Aur Sooraj Ke Upasak' under Chunnu Comics set info. This issue's soft copy i have under Prabhat comics label also. And since i can see Lal Bhujjakar, Tiger and Mahabal Bhoochaal in Chunnu comics so might be all or some of their issues from Prabhat comics have been re-released under Chunnu's name.

Also Thanks to Anupam bro and Rafiq bro for encouraging me but i think it was a small drop in the ocean from my side. And that too because of the people who have actually uploaded the comics. I have just downloaded the comics and tried to share the info. So real thanks goes to the original uploaders.

Anupam said...

Aby - The Goyal - Roshni transformation was unknown to me just 2 months ago, when I got the Roshni comics featuring Young Master - The famous Goyal character.

Radha to Golden is new to me. I have only 2 Golden comics and 7-8 Radha comics, so I have never noticed the similarity. but now I will check them.

About Prabhat-Chunnu, I am forced to think that chunnu Comics was only the REPRINT of Prabhat comics, as when I was creating the list I have seen abt a dozen titles from Prabhat appearing in Chunnu. So it was not using the characters to publish new comics, but was just reprinting them with the new publication title.

And brother, your help is valuable. You may have downloaded the comics and from them shared the information, but it is you who have shared it. There are thousands of people holding almost every comics ever published in India ( I believe that atleast 90% of the comic must have atleast 1 physical copy - that they are not extinct). But they are not coming to share information, even the comic sharing people (uploaders) are very few.

So every help is precious. And what they say

'Little drops of water make the mighty ocean.

So every drop is needed to fill the ocean of ICE PROJECT to its full glory.

So be with us...

usually i do remember the comics very well what i read. but sadly i cannot remember any story of Prabhat or chunnu or radha even though i am sure i have read them. it was the time when manoj was publishing in big size and same time Nutan and prabhat.. manoj glossy cover and better story line got the heart and slowly i lost interest in nutan and prabhat.. but Prabhat comics was out of interest for me since beginning.. i very well remember 'nana ji' mahabali bhuchal , and tiger' ( just this minute i can think of nanaji cover page in yellow dress, round glasses and a cane in his hand), tiger in read dress with mask like fauladi singh ) but not any story.

i admire this effort Anupam and wish that we should have some big library like USA and in london where we can see all our this comics in one place..

kash sach ho jaye..
