After almost 9 years, I am saddened to announce that we are shutting this site down. It has outlived it's purpose. It seems that few days back our accounts were suspended and all links were purged. As we are not actively uploading stuff on the site daily, we realized this a bit late. For the uninitiated comics are actually scheduled for upload upto 6 months in advance. Now we had already deleted all RC links from this site on Manish sir's request back in 2010-11. So this site was not in favor of piracy ever. RC is taking some strong moves to revive the industry & reprint old gems. We don't want to hamper this either. Also the fact that our MF account (which did not have any Raj Comics links) was shot down meant that someone felt it was promoting piracy & that kind of belittles the effort we have put in all these years.
To give you guys some background, this site was created back in the days of Orkut (in the days of community wars) so that rare comic books could be preserved in decent quality. We skimmed the second hand markets, collaborated with comic book lovers & purchased comics at abusrd rates from dealers just so that we could scan & preserve them. That was the single motivation. Back in RFN days, we reached out to Sanjay Sir several times to kick start reprints of old comics. We were ready to provide hardcopies too. But RC was slow in responding. During this journey we met several fans who just like us missed thier childhood collections of hardcopies. So we wnated them to get a chance to relive those memories. That's how we evolved. We started focusing on extinct publications, Tulsi, Radha etc. Some of us even met Ved Prakash ji (in meerut) to see if Tulsi could be reprinted. But it did not happen. On this journey we made some great friends who helped us get the collection. Most of us were RC fans but we started to collect other titles too just so that we could share with their fans. And that's why we are still 100% Ad free. Not even a penny has been made by this site so far (not even Ad words).
We have all our scans preserved so if we wanted to we could re upload them again today. But we won't after almost a decade RC has started collaborating with other brands. We wish them the best & lend our support to revive this industry again. It's a little disheartening to see people brand us as comic pirates because the effort was always to support the passion for this fading industry.
Thanks for supporting us for all these years. Now let's support Raj Comics & buy all of the old gems they put up so that someday we can have hardcopies of them again. We will putting up some of the hardcopies for sale (already do that on some of the sister sites) here. These would be sold at a discount at reasonable rates so that it helps you guys in preserving your collections. We had only purchased these at absurd rates (upto 500 bucks for 1 issue) for preservation. We will be sharing anything RC is missing too so that they can bring them out in the App.
