    Vintage Mini-comics printed in India. Seeking information

    Hey all,
    I've been collecting for 15 years and never had a mini-comic that was printed in India. Any info on these? Assuming they are fairly rare. Did they come with Leo figures? The paper is more like a newspaper than the glossy printed covers.
    Tried to do some google-fu but didn't really have any luck.

    I've never seen or heard of vintage MOTU comics printed in India like these before, beastor.

    They were released with the figures back in the 80s and I believe were also sold individually at candy shops in India. I've got a small collection of the books. apparently almost everything single comic was printed in INDIA.

    Still looking for any additional info on these. Would these have been packaged with the LEO figures? I can't find a shred of information of these online.

    Yes they were packed with figures and as Buzz Saw Hordak said just above apparently also sold alone.
    You can't find a lot of informations online about Leo toys (or comics) simply because they are pretty rares and specially Moc figures with the comic inside, most of the moc figures who surfaced online since 20 years are later releases/reissues (without comics inside).

    Here is a Mer-Man with the comic inside (exactly the same comic than your):
