Welcome back after a short break and this time we have a wonderful news in this particular post. Yes, This is possibly the biggest ever coverage for a Tamil comics book. Kungumam Weekly has covered the latest issue of Lion Comics Jumbo Special with a very neatly written article by Mr D. Arul Ezhilan. TCU is thankful to the management and the editorial section of Kungumam and a very, very special thanks to the author of this wonderful article.
Yes, there has been coverage in Magazines like India Today, Chutti Vikatan, etc. However, in terms of reach, this is by far the best. Kungumam happens to be India’s No.1 Tamil weekly magazine (Source: IRS). TCU is still waiting for more coverage from media on the promotion of Jumbo special and unfortunately another long official tour is already on the cards and hence for the next one week, there won’t be much of an activity, both in terms of coverage and posts. Apologies for that.
Now, Coming back to this article, the wonderful feature about it is, that it has the latest photo of our beloved Editor S. Vijayan holding the Jumbo special in his hands and for all those fans who are yet to see him in flesh and blood, this could be the possible alternative. Kindly buy the latest issue of Kungumam (Price INR 10/-, 132 Pages, 2011 Monthly calendar free with this issue) to have this piece of Comics History. Yes, there are certain collectors who do collect memorabilia like this. Do have this book in your collection.

It is wonderful to have the complete address of the publishers and usually there is a policy amongst media that they do not promote players in their own domain. For example, one particular TV Channel will not endorse another TV Channel. Same is the case with magazines, news papers, monthly issues etc. That is where the effort of Kungumam has to be appreciated. There was a leading English daily which already mentioned that they will not mention the publishers name in their forthcoming article as it will violate their editorial policy.
TCU Has mentioned that there are some media coverage waiting: Here is what left behind and they will be done only in the forthcoming weeks:
- 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.
For those who have missed the Chutti TV Interview of our beloved editor, Here is the link for the post: Akotheka
Now, the next post will include three top female leads from across the world: South India (Nayan Thara), North India (Sushmitha Sen) and Hollywood (Angelina Jolie). Kindly wait for 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) and also a comics links with the other 2 female leads.
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.
