Comic #78: Phantom - The Masked Marvel

Saturday, December 31, 2005 21 comments Share: Digg Technorati Delicious StumbleUpon Facebook

The cover of this one reminds me vaguely of the scene in Don where Pran escapes with the 2 kids. I would very much love to sum up 2005 but I am leaving for Bombay in about 12 hours - for a week. So I guess I will do that some other time. So this is the last comic of 2005 and 2006 will bring many more comics...scanned by Misraji, Johnny Hotwire, Desiguru (Hindi comics mostly?), maybe Anthony and of course TCP because he will get a scanner soon.

Interesting observation made by karthik in the previous comic: Check Page 9 :-)

Comic #77: Phantom - The Blue Gang

Thanks for the birthday wishes, I am sure L1 got 'em. Ditto for comic lover and SALMAN KHAN :-) And thanks to Praveen G Kamath (See cover of this comic) and Misraji as always. Wow...3 days to go before this year is out.

Hey rs.....you in India?? grreat. The move from home-cooked food to mom-cooked food should feel great na? Ah sibling!! You appear just like you disappeared.

After a reminder from bachelor yesterday, I am "proud" to present 8 facts about myself. The tagging shall come later coz I really don't know anyone that I could tag..I mean..how would they take it ...etc etc.


8 Facts
Fact #1: I scratched the centre of my head so much in the last 15 years that the spot has now gone bald. Now at 32, I look much older :-( especially when someone looks at the back of my head.
Fact #2: Conceited (right kiddo?), Obnoxious, Big mouth, Lack of volume control. Have an opinion on almost everything. Insensitive, likely to say the worst thing at the worst time with little regard for etiquette or occasion. Blessed with a sharp tongue which I try to keep sheathed - not always successfully.
Fact #3: Love Monica Bellucci (Malena) and Ingrid Bergman (Casablanca) - Sizzling hot italian to the ice cool swede :-)
Fact #4: "Genetic Typist" I call myself. Because parents were typists/stenos, my grandfather was a steno, my father's younger brother started as a steno. And because I type quite fast.
Fact #5: Can cook quite well. Not a big menu but way beyond maggi and poha. And can safely say that anything Indian and Vegetarian that I cook for the second time, will be very tasty. The first time, will be between ok and edible. By the third time, I stop tasting what I cook as I am certain about its quality :-) Told you I'm conceited na? But avial is an exception as I have never tried cooking it.
Fact #6: Can cook up a story about anything. So much that even when I speak the truth, people find it hard to believe.
Fact #7: Am a spendthrift and careless about money. Money doesn't turn me on except when it comes to spending. Gadget crazy. But fortunately some gadgets are too expensive. Love computers. Spend most of the day in front of one, even at home.
When I say real estate, it is more likely to mean Hard disk space rather than a flat in a Bombay suburb.
Fact #8: Becoming decent at coining one-liners, mostly horrible...but some good. In a meeting today, I said "We don't get any communication regarding the status of DB Migration. We keep waiting for an update like ...pause...(flash of lightning...clap of thunder and EUREKA!!!) waiting for rain in a desert". If you like this one, I can present a few more ;-)

Now to the comic called the Blue Gang.
