Welcome Back. Long time readers will have fond memories of the older days when TCU used to post many-a-posts within a week. Gone are those days and amidst all the hectic schedule, TCU is posting another News post related to Lion Comics Jumbo Special. Hopefully the trend will continue for the next month as well.
Now, this post is something of a new trend in TCU because this news post is not from any of the achieves of the media. Instead it is from the personal video of TCU. This is merely a glimpse of the total interview that TCU is planning with S.Ra. The original video is for more than 15 minutes in Hi-Definition and that particular video will be part of the documentary which will be released during the book exhibition in 2012. Kindly wait till that time.
Now, S.Rama Krishnan alias S.Ra is a well known comic fan, especially that of Muthu Comics & Lion Comics. He has a keen interest towards the way in which the expressions are made out in comics. His favourite character during the childhood days was The Steel Claw aka இரும்புக் கை மாயாவி.
Three years ago when TCU was involved with the launch of another Tamil Comics, S.Ra was invited as a Chief Guest. At that time itself, he was keen on certain comics books. He had fond memories of Malaimathi AFI Comics தோற்பதர்க்காகவே சூதாடிய மோசக்காரி (The Card Sharper Who Dealt To Lose, Rip Kirby Daily Strip No 71, Hi Seas – Hi Jinx, Starting from 01-08-1966 to 22-10-1966, Story & Art by John Prentice) and TCU was fortunate enough to have that particular book amongst the doubles collection and on the day of the function, he received the book and his delight was there for everyone to see. Kindly click on the picture for an enlarged version of the same.
Today, TCU had the opportunity to meet him again and he was so happy that he guaranteed that he will complete the book by tonight itself and he will write his review of the same very soon. Here is the picture of him with the Jumbo Special: One of TCU’s regular readers is Saravana Kumar from Tirunelveli. About a month ago, he wished that he wanted to see his favourite author S.Ra holding the jumbo special in his hands and talking about it, a bit. Well, his wish got confirmed today and this video is dedicated to him for being a long time fan of both Lion/Muthu comics and S.Ra
ComiRades can read S.Ra’s review of the Jumbo special very soon in a leading publication. Hopefully, he will write about the book in His own website http://www.sramakrishnan.com/ and that itself is commendable. Thank you very much, S.Ra. TCU Will be there with you in all your future endeavours.
