Welcome back to TCU. In this post, we are going to review a Tamil comics for the 1st time and hence the title is aptly named as Review N1, where N stands for New and 01 stands for the 1st book to be reviewed. Basically, the new or latest books will have these type of numbering in TCU.
ComiRades May Remember that The 1st part of this series was on sale from July 2nd Onwards. So, By Normal Standards, many comic fans (Including yours truly) expected the next part to be available somewhere close to Diwali.

Yes, that was the day i received Kaatril Karaindha Kazhugu (The Eagle that Vanished in Thin Air) காற்றில் கரைந்த கழுகு.

Compared to the 1st part, the 2nd parts cover was equally good. TCU doesn’t want to spoil many others expectation by means of giving the synopsis of this 2nd part over here. Guys, go and Read this, You will not be disappointed for reading this. By the way, Hot line by Mr Vijayan was about the forthcoming books. It was good to know that Part 3 of this series (Yemanin Yellaiyil) will be available by the 2nd week of September (At the max by September month end). There is this announcement about Agent Philip Corrigan making a Grand Return to Tamil Comics after a Very Very Long Gap. The Title of the Story is very interesting: Maandavan Meendaan (The return of the dead Man). The very next month after Phil Corrigan will be a Comedy Bonanza of Chick Bill.
Because of the Length of the story, regular features like Singathin Siru Vayadhil, Trailers of the forthcoming issues were not featured. As usual, there was this mention about Lion collectors special on Agent XIII - Irathap Padalam (Part 1-18). The latest on this is that only, ONLY 327 copies have been booked so far.The entire list will be published in the next issue of lion comics. The Back wrapper was about the Next issue - Concluding part of the Part 3 series.
