Thanks very much, advnarayan. I hope it reads as well as it smells! :-)

Regarding The Phoenix - they do take PayPal as an option, if that helps?

I finished reading the book yesterday night, and I blame you for me losing sleep!
Let me say that the work combines the best of the spirit of Tintin adventures with that of the Blake & Mortimer works. To say that this was a fantastic read would be incorrect - it was fantabulous!

I recently reviewed Daisy and The Goldbug Variation for the Rebeccasreads e-zine. Don't know whether I can review another graphic novel so close on the heels of that one. Let me see.

Regarding the Phoenix comics - I am being frank - the UK Pound/ $ - viz- a viz the Indian Rupee currency rate difference stops me from buying this 4 volume comic set.
The Complete Rainbow Orchid (at 117-plus pages) cost me approx 11.5 UK Pounds (Indian Rs. 1041) including shipping rates - while it would cost around 11.75 UK Pounds to get this 4 issue special; so it's with a heavy heart and a light purse that I did not go for it.
Hope you understand.

Very pleased you liked The Rainbow Orchid - thank you :-)

Totally understand about The Phoenix issues - these things can cost a lot overseas. Fingers crossed for a collection one day, then!

i wrote a review of COMPLETE RAINBOW ORCHID in infibeam dot com- an online site which is India-centric. After writing the review I found that there was a 2000 character word limit- and hence had to go for drastic editing.
hope you could read the same
