Another article related to Tin Tin and No, this is no way related to the Gay Controversy which was the theme of almost all the articles in the news category last month. This was about the “Local Version” of the Tin Tin VCD’s and DVD’s available. Zee Cafe of late is doing a Re-Run of the Tin Tin animated tales and the same is shown on Zee TV in Hindi Language. ComiRades may recall that sometime back Lucky Luke was available in Star One Channel in Hindi Language as well. Another Birdie reminds TCU that Martin Mystery is shown in Chutti TV in Tamil Language. Happy watching ComiRades.

The Graphic Pick section in Times of India has now become the most awaited segment for TCU as it is doing a good review of some of the good collections. Here is one which, to say the truth, is not that much liked by TCU. However, this one, edited by George Low is been rated highly by some of the ComiRades and Ayyampalayam Venki Sir has this book in his home (Hey,Am not giving any unwanted info). By the way, Ayyampalayam Sir is living alone as of right now and From 8 AM till 5 PM he will not be available in his home (Again TCU is not giving any Un-Wanted Info over here).

The Indian Express regularly does cover the Comics segment. Here is one such article that is written by renowned Blogger Nithin Koshy on Conan The Barbarian. This character has always been my favourite one ever since Arnold took this Character one to Hollywood.Here is an review of one of Conan’s Stories.

Finally, here is one book that is worth the cost. Those who can buy this, go grab it.
Three reasons for the recommendation:
(1) Edited by The Great Steve Holland (No more reasons required apart from this).
(2) Has a good collection of Stories such as Kit Carson, Buck Jones, etc who are already known to Tamil Comics Ulagam by virtue of Rani Comics, Sasi Comics etc.
(3) There is one character who has appeared in one of the special issues of Rani Comics and and particular hero is featured in this book as well. Those ComiRades who can recollect that Rani Comics Hero and comment the answer correctly will stand to get a special prize from TCU.
