As mentioned in the previous post, the best part of any comics book is the advertisements it carries about the forthcoming issues. here are they. By the way, TCU is little bit angry with Kanavugalin kadhalan on the part that he did not give us the information (When he is giving info about a lot of French comics) that TCU’s all time favourite Artist Hermann is back with new sets of Bernard Prince stories. Only very recently our Editor has informed about this. Another impressive fact is that Hermann's son is also combining with his father to produce the latest Bernard Prince stories which are painted, rather than drawn.
