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.
