Popular Indian comics characters

in: India

Indian ComicsReading comics is one of the most popular activites amongst small children and teenegers in India. I also spent my childhood, reading comics of Chacha Chaudhary, Nagraj, Super Commando Dhurv, Biloo, Pinki etc. I liked them very much. Now a days, I am feeling that these comics are slowly disappearing from book shops and railway book stalls. Now most of the comics publishers are more interested in spreading their business on internet as the children of current generation have become addicted to computers and internet. Most of the kids spend their free time in front of the computer and video games and hence they do not get chance to read comics and other story books.  

History of Indian Comics

Aabid Surti was one of the early Indian comic authors. His 3 panel strips Dhabbuji which was based on the protagonist who is a lawyer by profession, used to publish in the magazine Dharmayug. Meanwhile, Indrajal Comics came up with characters like Phantom and Mandrake, but they were not 100 % Indian characters. Then came the goldern period of Indian comics, when Cartoonist Pran published the comic Daabu. Before this, most of the Indian magazines used to publish American comic strips on their pages.

Pran created many Indian Characters like Shrimatiji, Pinki, Billoo and the popular Chacha Chaudhary in the 1970s. These comics continued to be inspired mainly by newspaper strips and other American comic characters. Another notable Indian comic publishing house is Raj Comics, home of characters such as Nagraj, Doga, Super Commando Dhruva, Parmanu, Bankelal etc.
