TCU is getting encouraging response from Comirades on these New Comics Intro series and hence the next post will also be on a Brand new comics. Yes, the next post will comprise about a Comic book series which will be in all South Indian languages very soon, Including (Possibly) Tamil. Since the Inception, TCU has always tried to bring on various news articles related to Comics as a whole & Tamil comics in particular. Here are some of the latest news articles appeared in various magazines.
Junior Vikatan – Rip Kirby Vintage Comics Reference: Old ComiRades still hold the Malaimathi AFI Comics in very good esteem and only very few die-hard present generation ComiRades even knew about the existence of such a series. Hence to remember a title that was published 35 years ago and was not in the news since then, is a hard task. Only somebody who has read this in his childhood and cherished the moments can recollect that. Hence the well known Political reporter working under the title “Kazhugar-கழுகார்” has to be a ComiRade only. TCU will confirm this from himself very soon. Watch out for this space, folks.
