- A JAMES BOND COMICS :
On 2009, Titan released some volumes of JB comic-strips where the first volume was exclusively for JM's strips!
[ Indian comic fans might remember that Diamond Comics introduced James Bond in the '90s and published several issues but, unfortunately, none of those was by J.McLusky... rather DC picked Yaroslav Horak strips who was far inferior as an artist,and hence Bond comics from his era were major let-down! ]
- Title of the Story : একান্ত গোপনীয়(For your Eyes Only ; 10th Daily strip)
- Publication period(in Bengali) : Anandamela Pujabarshiki 1989(১৩৯৬)
- A Walt Disney's COMICS :

- Publication period(in Bengali) : Anandamela Monthly issues from 1976(২য় বর্ষ ৩য় সংখ্যা - ৯ম সংখ্যা ; ১৩৮৩)
- Title of the Story : রাত গভীর

Billy's boot was once again appeared in the Anandamela Pujabarshiki 1989(১৩৯৬),after his first appearance on 1983(১৩৯০),but this time he was not Bilas Roy but Billy Dane i.e. publisher retained the original name.It's quite amusing though to see a character in two different names under same publication within few years only,indicating they didn't check the archive before posting!
But in this Anandamela, it was only a 2-pager,so not exactly a full-story but like a filler!
Only regret is that neither I have ever seen any of those issues in old-book shops nor the publisher is showing any response...might be they have moved in a different direction!
Anyway,it's amazing to see how rich Bengali comic-culture was in those days of '70s and '80s till '90s...
