Decrease of Quality and popularity in Raj comics: List of Different factors!

Posted by Ajay_D in Untagged 

Ajay_D

There are several reasons, and we must take them into consideration.

Artwork-

In a decade gone by, there was less focus on artwork. The artwork was mostly primitive and less defined. Due to this reason, Raj comics writer staff had more time to write better stories and I can safely say that their main focus were the stories. Also because the artwork was not RC' s first priority in old day, the comics were finished quickly for printing and distributing.

HardCopy Collectors are Very lucky people!

As you know, not every part of India carries Raj comics.

Fans are decreasing, As the rates go up and more readers attracted to other entertainment. (Video games, Foreign comics and Movies).

There are still those big loyal readers, even they are not able to purchase comics because their cities don't carry them.

The very few loyal readers who are able to go all out to purchase their copies are indeed very lucky guys. The Raj comics stock is printed in limited number (confirmed by sanjay ji) and the rising rates are forcing these fans to download comics. The Stock is so limited these days that even the comics printed a year ago are becoming out of stock.

My point is-
In coming years this trend of decreasing availability of Raj comics will make hard copies collector's entity.
10 years from now...the comics in this new generation are going to be very very rare..like Nagayan, Amar Prem and other series being printed now.

The Fans who are able to obtain a hard copy of new sets are indeed very lucky.
Because we are preserving and collecting those comics which are printed in limited numbers and are very much in high demand already.

I am one of lucky fans...i will cherish all my hard copies.

New Thrill Horror series is not the same!

Posted by Ajay_D in Untagged

Hello friends,

For me new Thrll horror comics are lacking in Horror, many new issues have too much to do with atma's and deep storylines but less to do with actual horror and thrills themselves.

Examples are-jail sharir, pret daulat etc etc.

I think older Thrill horror comics were more creative and unique in a sense that it had diffrent approches in storylines like peesachRaja, Hytari Gande, Adumkore Hytara, Ek Kaatora khoon, Natural horrors (Khoon ki barrish, Bhago mhoot jagi) Thief that trains rats to rob graves (12 gantay).

Today new comics focus more on Drama or movie type storyline similar to bolly wood horror films. But other things matter too-Locations.

Old Thrill horror comics took place in varied remote locations like villages, vallies, jungles, vallies, graveyards and even middle ages (Peesach Raja). Locations matter, because they help writer tease out the horror aspects and provide with more ideas. When you have a horror story written in cities, its not the same no more, you don't get the shivers.

Locations matter big time, They need to work with horror conecpts too that are more scary and unique like i said. Please bring us what we loved...horror.

Our Lost Hero:Nagraj.

Warning:The following material is from my clear mind and in all its unbiased glory. Some may find it offensive and if your the guy who loves The green, i would move on. But if your want to know my view..here it is.

Instead of telling you how i want Nagraj to be...i tell you how Raj comics screwed his character up and from there you can be the judge of how i feel.

Ok!....I miss how Nagraj wore his over coat and how he was not involved with little pathetic things like being a 'secret' T.V. reporter. Its not right when you see Nagraj in a duel identity being a home boy with some woman...you know something has gone seriously wrong!!. I miss the days when he set his sights much higher...when he trageted world dons and super villans (todhaga, BamBam binglo, Don, Miss killer.)...not just stay in a city and pretend to be a goody reporter and wait for someone to attack, older nagraj got to them first and ripped the roots of the problem.

One way Trade:Better art in sacrifice of better stories!

Posted by Ajay_D in Untagged

I have been a huge fan of Raj comics since age 9, and i bought almost all comics in my favorite series. But then i moved to canada in 1996...leaving behind khajana, the last comic i wanted to read to read before i leave for foriegn land.

Recently, i have visted india once again in 12 years. Since i have never savored Raj comics since 1996...i was shocked by the overall presentaion in artwork and colors. I was happy once again to buy and read my favorite comics of Nagraj, Dhurva and Thrill Horror once again!

I came back home after filling by bags with comics (60). Since now i am at home i begin to read the new comics. First one i read was Lava and Vinashlila. At first site i was blown away by the great artwork and colors. But i was unfilmilar with the name Jali Sinha in the writer section. Since i was not in india from 96-2005...i was not aware of the major changes that took place in RC.

Comic sharing is Bad idea (with few exception!).

Sharing old comics online...is it a bad Idea?

Well...first i would like to clear up that sharing new comics is a bad bad idea, because your downloading what you can already purchase. But there are other expections to this so called "Online comics sharing". You may think its illegal altogether. But- 

But i think its okay to share old hard to find comics online. I am in support of sharing old rare issues online. Since we can't find old issues... and Raj comics are strict against reprinting some of the series....we are being deprived of what we want to read, and i think this is the only option we have so far. I don't see whats the harm in this is since you can't purchase such issues anymore, and i think it will be a while for reprints to come out (chances are slim still).
