9 Classic Indian Comic Books That Made Our Childhood Awesome

9 Classic Indian Comic Books That Made Our Childhood Awesome

Looking for some good bedtime reading? Go find that dusty old box of childhood comics that we know you have in some corner of your house. The 90s comics we all read in our childhoods were amazing. We went on adventures with Supandi, fought crime with the likes of Nagraj and Super Commando Dhruva, and even learned about mythology in the pages of Amar Chitra Katha. We loved to secretly hide them behind our textbooks and pretend to study!

Remember some of these favourite childhood comics?

1. Tinkle

When the postman brought letters for mom and dad, we excitedly awaited our delivery of Tinkle. This childhood comic was a treasure of friends and fun for us 90s kids. They were full of clever stories with characters like Shikari Shambu, Pyarelal, and of course, our favourite Supandi. Plus, they had quizzes and puzzles that kept us entertained!

2. Champak

If we weren’t waiting for Tinkle in the mail, we were definitely waiting for Champak. We loved the amazing stories, jokes, and brain teasers in this childhood comic. Plus, it taught us not to believe in superstitions.

3. Amar Chitra Katha

Amar Chitra Katha comics brought us stories of important people, mythology, and our culture through beautiful illustrations. Stories of Ram, Krishna, and Jesus became relatable to us. This childhood comic even taught us about important historical Indian figures like Babasaheb Ambedkar, Shastri, and Tilak better than any textbook ever did.

4. Chacha Chaudhary

This famous 90s comic was so well-loved by children that it actually became a popular TV show. Even the theme song rings in our ears. Chacha Chaudhary was the wise old uncle we all wanted to hang out with. It was so much fun to see how his wit and intelligence always saved the day.

5. Akbar and Birbal

Speaking of wise people, let’s talk about Akbar and Birbal. Birbal was a witty and wise courtier in Emperor Akbar’s court and this 90s comic series is based on their friendship. Birbal advises Akbar on matters of his Court and his intelligence definitely upped our IQ. Iconic stories like Birbal’s khichdi will always be a part of our lives!

6. Panchtantra

Monkeys and elephants, lions and jackals - the entire animal kingdom was our friend with Panchtantra comics! Panchtantra took an ancient Sanskrit collection of animal fables and made them super relatable for us 90s kids. Even today, we remember the story of the monkey and the crocodile, the foolish lion and the clever jackal, and so many others. With these 90s comics, we had fun while learning moral lessons.

7. Nagraj

Today we watch superheroes from Marvel and DC, but back in the day, we loved our DESi superheroes just as much! Remember Nagraj? He was born to be a venomous villain but became a superhero, saving the day with his awesome snake-control powers. He can totally give any superhero a run for his money.

8. Shakti 

In a superhero universe that didn’t have too many women, Shakti was a badass inspiration for boys and girls alike. She could sense the pain and anger of women in the world and travel as light at the speed of light. She didn’t tolerate injustice and released her rage through her third eye on her foes.

9. Super Commando Dhruva

Super Commando Dhruva was an ordinary teenager who became an extraordinary superhero! He didn’t have special powers or hide behind a mask, but he lived in a Circus and knew martial arts. When he lost his parents, he dedicated his life to fighting crime! (Batman, watch out). Growing up on these childhood comics made us all want to be him.
