Kick-ass Bongs Nos. 1 and 2

Koushik, supersleuth

Bantul the Great

The funny thing in Bangla comics and also in many other articles/stories that are published serially (or,dharabahik bhabe)is the footnote "cholbe", obviously indicating that the stuff is being produced serially and will continue in the next edition.
But, every time I see this, I can't help thinking of it to be a somewhat unflattering commentary on the content-almost as if 'cholbe' means 'hmm,will do,somehow'.

Kicks ass. Brings back memories of self as a grimy seven-year old, reading the comics in dark corners of the house. Funy thing is, at the time I really couldn't differentiate between the quality of these and the much jazzier amar chitra kathas.

Hey, have you heard of a Bengali comic character called Timpa? I don't understand Bengali but the series was also translated into English. It was a take-off on Tintin.

your post somehow makes me remember the phrase that often surfaced in the footnotes of 'chacha choudhury's' comics:
"chacha choudhurir buddhi computer er cheyeo prokhor".

that signature itself i guess made it the 'kick-assest' strip of the country:D.

Oh, Bantul is so cool! I remember going through my cousin's stash of Bantul and Nonte-Phonte on summer vacations. And of course Betaal and Mandrake, and later, the Bangla editions of Tintin. I think every home I've ever been to in Bengal has some hand-me down Bantul comics tucked away between couch cushions. The memories!
