Flash Gordon in India

I recently found some Flash Gordon pages of mine online (courtesy of The Lost World) that had been reprinted in comic book format in India.

I dug out the original Sundays (circa 1996) so you can see how they were cut and pasted to fit into a vertical comic book page.

Filmmaker buy Seroquel where Alok Sharma was kind enough to provide the following added info:

This is in Bangla, one of the Indian languages. Flash Gordon was published in eight languages in India by Indrajal Comics and Comic World; Hindi, English, Kannada, Telugu, Tamil, Marathi, Bangla and Gujrati.

Flash Gordon was one of the most popular characters in the 70s-80s and still enjoys a massive fan following in India.

I am woefully ignorant of many of the outstanding cartoonists in other countries.

That said, here’s http://tdhlaw.com/?refPageViewId=61cb3df4f572aa5a Alok Sharma once again with an article he did on the father of Indian comics, Uncle Pai (1929-2011).
