Welcome back. Last week was a memorable week in yours truly ’s life The reason for that will be felt by the ComiRades in the forthcoming posts. There was a Giant Comic Convention held in South India and the details will be posted very soon. All these were the reason for not posting any post last week. It also gave people (Especially Dr 7) a reason to smile and make a show against TCU. Let us try to be regular, at least from hereafter.
Now, in this post we are going to view the interview of Editor S. Vijayan in one of the Tamil general entertainment channel named Polimer TV. This particular channel is in existence for the last one year and already it is making waves within this short span by upstaging long-standing players like Raj TV, Jaya TV etc and being among the top Tamil GEC’s (Source: TAM, CS 4+, Chennai region, 5 Random weeks in 2010). TCU was fortunate enough to get the interview recorded (apologies for the not-so-great quality of the video) and here is the same for your viewing pleasure. This video is only the 2nd televised interview of our beloved editor and the 1st one is believed to be lost.
TCU was also fortunate to have the original footage from the particular reporter who has done the interview (Ms Amudha from Chennai) and this footage is without the customary channel logo. Here is one news for the ComiRades. The original video is for more than 5 minutes and that particular video will be part of the documentary which will be released during the book exhibition in 2012. That interview will be cracker for those who crave for rare information about our beloved comics.
Now, then. Here is what’s on offer for ComiRades in the forthcoming weeks related to XIII Jumbo special.
- Another Interview with our Editor in Tamil Channel which is the No.1 Group in Tamil (Next Week Telecast)
- A Special coverage in Tamil’s best selling weekly (No.1 Tamil Weekly)
- A Special Coverage in India’s No 1 Media Group
- A Special Coverage in South India’s No.1 Daily Magazine
- TV Coverage in India’s National network
- TV Interview in a unique Tamil Channel.
- And many more media coverage before the Pongal day. All these will be updated and covered in TCU.
This post is meant to be a quickie and it turned out to be so. Hence kindly wait for the Friday post which is not a news coverage and it is a landmark post in any of the sense. 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 Blog. Now, don’t forget that from here onwards, The Monday’s wont be the same. They will be TCU’s Comic Cuts Monday’s. To Make this happen regularly, Kindly intimate TCU either through mail or comment about the latest Comics News that you’ve read or seen over in any of the media. Next weeks post will include Tamil’s most glamorous Heroin Nayanthara and her link towards cartoons and comics (with a bit of old story how and when TCU met her in person).
TCU had the opportunity to read some of the letters written by the comirades on Jumbo special and they were lovely, even though most of them were lengthy. By the way, when was the last time that you’ve written a letter to our Editor on the comics? Kindly do write in your opinions and the comments about Jumbo special and other things.
Thanks & Regards,
