Nature Wrecked Havoc in the form Unprecedented Rains in Chennai City Where Yours Truly Lives - Chennai City In Tamil Nadu - India. The Worst affected was The People Who Travel a Little Bit Longer to their Respective Offices. The Traffic was Affected so much that it Took More than 6 Hours for Yours Truly to reach Home on Thursday Night, which in Normal Heavy-Duty Traffic will be covered in 45-60 Minutes. As Our Organisation is all set to Expand, Yours Truly was Busy to an level whereby I Couldn't even Update the News Content which was ready by 26th Morning in My Blog-Draft. Apologies for the Late-Posting, Which has become a Habit of Sorts with Yours Truly - just Like Lion Comics and Muthu Comics.
Lets Get into the News Coverage of Comic-Related News of this week. First it was on Deccan Chronicle whereby, Quoting www.contactmusic.com, they have informed that the Iconic Character of Batman / Bruce Wayne is all set to die in the November 27th issue of Batman R.I.P Magazine. Thanks to My Brother who SMS' ed me the Same on the morning itself & couple of other overseas ComiRades who tipped me the Same. Here is the Scan of the News Paper Article (By the Way, Kindly note that Yours Truly's Brand New Scanner was Repaired and these Scans were the First one to be churned out of it. A Big Big Thanks to Fellow ComiRade Ayyampalayam Lakshmanan Venkateshwaran Sir who Helped Yours Truly on Colour Correction and other Gimmicks in Photo Shop Works).
Couple of Days Later (29th November 2008 - Saturday), after the Official Book got released, Time Of India Carried out an Article on the Reaction of ComiRades about the Death of Batman. The Correspondent Ms Lakshmi Venkateshwaran has covered this topic in a manner which will make many a Die-Hard ComiRade Proud. Normally what happens in such situations is that the author may not have adequate knowledge on the topic (When it comes to a Matter of Skewed Interest) and hence as a result, the Article suffers. However, contrary to the opinion, Ms Lakshmi Venkateshwaran covered the topic in such a Coherent way that implies that there could be a ComiRade Hiding inside (Need to Verify the same).
ComiRades May Recall that This is not the first time that a Comic Character is Killed (Invariably to increase Sales of the Magazine). There was this peculiar Case where the Author (Sir Arthur Conan Doyle) was fuming on the prospect of His Character (Sherlock Holmes) getting more Fame than the author himself. The End of this situation was on the expected Lines leading to the death of the Character itself. In the Batman series itself, Bruce Wayne's BackBone was Injured and a Temporary Batman Replaced him for certain perod. However, there was a case when mortal loss was happened in the Batman series and that leads to Robin. Here are the cover scans and the Page where Batman carrying the Wonderboy's Body.
On a Fine Sunday when Yours Truly was answering calls pertaining to Office, A SMS of Interesting Matter reached His Personal Mobile. That was from Fellow ComiRade Mr Pathy who informed about the News Paper Article on The Comics Reading Habit. Many a Thanks to Him. Later on When Another ComiRade (Ayyampalayam Venkateshwaran Sir) Visited Yours Truly after a week of outstation visit, He came with the Same News Paper,Coincidence To say the least.
This particular Article was such a Joy to read as it hit the Bulls Eye with the concept of "You Can Always Make a Man Out of a Boy; However, You Can Never take the Boy Out of a Man" advocating the basic nostalgia factor which is driven by the fountain of Youthfulness-Comics Reading. This Particular Author, Anuradha Varma, has gone to the mature Graphic Level after touching the Happy-Go-Lucky kind of comics. Way to go with so many articles pertaining comics as a hobby.
