Apologies at first for not able to post the “Promised” posts for the last two weeks. Internet Failure, System Crash and hectic travelling are the reasons for the Non-Posting of the Planned posts such as March 8th (International Woman’s Day), March 13th (Friday – the Thirteen), March 16 (Prakash Publisher’s Special Publication) etc. Of late, TCU is also becoming more or less like our own Tamil comics Publication – Postponement and reasoning for the delay. However, let’s get rid of this Bug and From Now onwards, ComiRades can Expect at least one post per week from TCU.
Meanwhile, there have been many comics related news in the magazines and let’s finish with them first and then we may move on to the Interesting News on the Comics from our own Publication – Lion comics (See Below). Of late, these comics news postings have become a ‘Passé’ and hence there will be no commentary over with these news items. Some News are interesting like getting your own Comics based on yourself, or for that matter the concept of Our comic heroes chasing the 26/11 Culprits. Some of them are downright boring like Priyanka chopra being the theme for a comic series (This has been posted only for Dr 7 & Viagra Thaaththa), Mobile Comics called as Momics.
TCU Special Update: Here is something that will bring cheers to those who live in and around Coimbatore.
