10 Comic Cuts 34-News 34: M.S.Subbu Lakshmi’s Graphic Novel (Kungumam), Spider Man’s Death (Kumudham) & A New Steel Claw?

Dear ComiRades,

Welcome back to TCU with another dose of Comics & related news features. As TCU is nearing 100 posts, the number of news posts (Comic Cuts) keep on increasing and this trend is rather healthy. Healthy in the sense that at least we have some news and related articles when we don’t have enough comics in Tamil. Hopefully this shortage of Comics will be overcome very shortly and we will be having our monthly new comics review very, very soon. Enough of the future and let’s get on with the current news.

01 Kungumam – Lakshmi Devnath’ s Graphic Novel: Since the launch, this particular book is getting more and more positive reviews in the media space and this holds good for the other entrants in the graphic novel domain. The message is loud and clear: If the content is good and provided the presentation is world class, we will welcome with both arms. Now, it is the turn of Kungumam Weekly and the review is wonderful, to say the least.

02 Kumudham – Spider man’s Death: TCU has already covered this particular news in the regular Comic Cuts section in THIS post. On the heels of those news articles in English news papers comes this article in Kumudham weekly. Sadly none of the other frontline media cared to give coverage to this news. Anyway, here is what Kumudham got to say on this topic.

03 Dina Malar Siruvar Malar – Another Steel Claw?: We all loved THE Steel Claw aka Irumbuk kai Maayavi (இரும்புக்கை மாயாவி) as he is known in South India since the last 41 years. There have been more than a dozen copy-cat Steel claws from the local comics stories and most of them were failures and the few ones which got some sort of success was from Mullai Thangarasan himself. Some years ago, there was a TV Serial in Jaya TV which was in 3-D format where the hero had similar traits to that of Louis Crandell.  Now, here comes another one. Some time back TCU has done a post about the resurrection of Siruvar Malar. Sadly, they have reverted to the old style with very little space for comics, that too translated from Hindhi market. On the wake of that thought, here is Lee Rock.

Remember, you can read Siruvar Malar free of cost in their home page. Here is the link for that: Siruvar Malar

Well, that's all for the time being & TCU will be back with the next issue of Mekala Comics in the next post-which happens to be one of the very few Special issues in Tamil comics history where Editor S.Vijayan was not involved. 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.

Thanks & Regards,

King Viswa.

  3. I have been buying the dinamalar siruvar malar since your post in feb.

    naturally, i was disappointed when they stopped the new series. Later on, when they started certain syndicated stories, i noticed lee rock and his iron hand. at that time itself i thought about the similarity between steel claw and minnal mayavi etc.

    the colouring (i believe, done in by the dinamalar people) is also very nice and fits in the bill.

  4. this particular feature from kumudam states that spider-man is going to be killed in the film and not in the story book.

    weird???????

  5. Got my copy of the M.S.Subbulakshmi story book in comics form yesterday and was very much happy to see her signed photograph.

    the book is packaged very nicely and the format (also does justice) is new for such biographies.

    i wouldn't have read this book, if it isn't in comics form. Thanks for Lakshmi Devnath for the innovative idea.

    People like her should be encouraged to write more and more. Planning buy her other books.

  6. வந்துட்டாருயா , இன்னுமொரு மாயாவி க்ளோன்.

    ஒரு விஷயம்: இந்த கதை வட இந்தியாவில் நன்றாகவே வரவேற்ப்பு பெரும். ஏனென்றால் அங்குதான் மாயாவி பற்றி தெரியாதவர்கள் இருக்கிறார்கள். இரும்புக்கை மாயாவி என்று ஒருவர் இருப்பதே அவர்களில் பெரும்பான்மையானவர்களுக்கு தெரியாது.
