Lots Of Things (Almost all of them Are Personal) Like Yours Truly Meeting with an Accident, Car Damages, Official Work, Traveling, Blogger Being Banned in Office, BSNL - Broadband - Blogger - Problem, My Own Net Connect Card's Connectivity Problem etc forced Me to Post yet another News post (Even This is delayed by 2 days). Anyway, Of late, TCU is giving more Reasons than Results. Let us hope that The new Year brings much more Joy than the past one, Which in many Ways was one of the Worst, if not the Worst, years in Yours Truly's very, very short life time.
The New Year Has been very good to Tamil Comics Bloggers, Especially to the 2 Senior most Bloggers. In the last posting, We have covered How The Chennai News Paper Deccan Chronicle carried an article about our own Beloved Muthu Fan (Who, i must say, is still Cannot Be Reached through Phone).In this week, we are Looking at The second most Senior Blogger, Our Comicology Rafiq, being covered in Anandha Vikatan (ஆனந்த விகடன் - Chennai Based Tamil Weekly Magazine) in their Welcome Page (வரவேற்பறை - A Section where they introduce Blogs, Books, Music, Movies to the Readers). Die-Hard ComiRades May recollect that in the same page in 2006, The Comic Blog which is pending for up-dation and one more Comics site were covered.
Hats Off to Rafiq. This is the Second accolade that he is winning in the Last 2 weeks. Earlier, he won the Prestigious TCU's Inaugural Award for the Best Looking Blog and Now this token of appreciation from the well known and widely respected Magazine from Chennai. Way to go Rafiq. The way he is improving his Site is tremendous.
Now, the second part of the Comics news. This is about the Graphic pick section from the Times Of India's Chennai Times Segment on page No 10 of Today's Edition. ComiRades Who visit Landmark Bookshop in Chennai must be knowing about these books for the last 9 Months. The Big Volume Books on War, Wild West etc from the Golden Oldies of Fleetway's Best of the Best collections. This is one among them. It features 12 stories and about 6 of them are Good and hence it becomes an object to buy.However, what prevents from doing so, is the way the book is packaged: Hard to read and preserve. Have a Try.
Now Comes the Most Interesting part of the Post. The 32nd Chennai Book Fair which got started yesterday is a place to visit for the comics fans as there is a Stall for All those ComiRades who often ask where to buy the previous issues of Lion and Muthu Comics. Here in stall 35 (Info Books) you can get all those books which got published from post 2000. Go Grab it, Chennaities. This is your chance for buying in Chennai instead of Sivakasi. The Man behind this wonderful initiative is One Mr Arun from Saidapet, Chennai. Hats off to Him. The News is that the Lion Comics Special (Jolly Special) is sold out in the stall. Hurry.
Well, that's all for the time being. As usual, post your comments in the comments section. For those who want to Pen their thoughts in Tamil, Kindly Use the Option Provided in the Widget in the sidebar.
