Many a Thanks for all of those who called/SMS' ed/Commented/Mailed me on my last News with Chennai Book Fair and the availability of Tamil Comics Books, Especially Lion Comics and Muthu Comics. It gives us great strength to know that many of you follow TCU when it comes to anything related to Comics. Thanks a Ton.
When TinTin celebrated his 80th Birthday, a New controversy broke out when a British Senator questioned the Character of TinTin while proposing that he is a Gay. Here are two articles related to that. By the way, TCU Has a complete story on TinTin & considering the number of Scans in this post, that part was relegated to future post. When we read the Deccan Chronicle article, TCU couldn't Miss the point when they got the comment from Mr Gaman (Remember Cheziyan's Comment in the previous post).

As Usual, Americans tried to catch with up with the Obama Factor and the fact that he is going to be crowned as the president of U.S of A Soon. Hence, they tried another marketing strategy by combining Spiderman (Imaginary Saviour) with Obama (The Supposedly Real Life Saviour). This was carried as a News in Kalaignar TV (A Tamil Channel from India) on 9th Jan in their evening News. TCU Will try to get that news as well.

The remaining scans are the usual weekly reviews from Indian Express where M/s Sneha Nagesh is doing a commendable job by writing regularly on Comics. However, have a closer look at the first scan from Deccan Chronicle for it gives another significant moment for the graphic novel segment in India. Mr Amit DasGupta has tried his new story in the graphic Novel style and that fact itself needs to be appreciated.
