Here are some of the world’s most dangerous bridges that are meant only for walking. These are the so-called rope hanging bridges. You can find a wide variety of these bridges in countries like India, Malaysia, Philippines, New Zealand, Pakistan, Nepal, as well as in the interiors of some other countries.
A bridge can prove to be dangerous for a variety of reasons; either because it’s very old, narrow, too high up above the land, over a quick river or if the wooden “floor” goes missing. What makes them dangerous is the fact that in spite of the condition of the bridge, they have to be used; as many a time, these pathways are the main or even the only way for the local inhabitants of a small village to reach a bigger city. Among all the bridges, the most popular among tourists are the hanging bridges. Let’s take a look at some of them.

Download the whole comic (28 Mb) in a high-quality PDF format!
Just click on the Yellow Submarine comic book cover
The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine was one of the first movies I ever saw in my life, so you can imagine how it tweaked my brain when I saw it on a 30-foot-high drive-in movie screen as a wee 3-year-ol lad in 1968. I had never seen the comic book version before until I ran across this PDF on the web. I don’t have any info on the creative team, but if any of you can shed more light on this comic, please leave a comment!PS…if you don’t want to download a 28 megabyte PDF, you can read it online at Scribd: Yellow Submarine Comic
