Welcome back to TCU. Belated Republic Day wishes to one and all. Couple of assignments prevented Yours truly from posting a special post yesterday. Apologies for that and let us make that out by the much expected post of the “Year End Review 2010” within this week, probably by Saturday itself. This particular Year end post will be much bigger and yes, we will discuss about all the 33 Tamil comics titles which were published in the last calendar year. Yes, there were 33 different Comics titles that got published last year and for a comprehensive view on them, keep waiting for another 2 days.
Meanwhile, this post is done on the simple reason that the much loved Tamil weekly magazine Kumudam (Official website: http://www.kumudam.com/) has honoured the latest issue of the Lion Comics Jumbo Special XIII இரத்தப் படலம் in their latest issue dated 02-02-2011, On stands from today onwards (Thursday 27th Jan 2011). Now, Those who know Tamil Language do not require an introduction about Kumudam Magazine. For those who came in late, Kumudam is one of the leading Tamil magazines, if not THE Leading Tamil weekly magazine for over 63 Years and will also continue to do so. And the most popular segment in the book happens to be the section where readers questions on various types are answered. Yes, அரசு பதில்கள் Arasu Padhilgal is the page to which most of the readers turn into and read, including yours truly. This is similar to our ComiRades reading Editor S.Vijayan’s Hotline in Lion Comics. And this Arasu Padhilgal reaches out instantaneously to the far corners of the world. To feature in that section, is really a honour indeed for our beloved Lion Comics. Here is the scan of the same:
|Kumudam Tamil Weekly Magazine–Issue Dated 02-02-2011–On Stands Thursday 27th Jan 11–Page No 132–Arasu Padhilgal-அரசு பதில்கள் On Lion Comics|
Kumudam Arasu Padhilgal has honoured Lion Comics and a Very Big thanks for that. TCU Thanks the Management, Publisher & Editor of Kumudam. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. It’s a huge boost to the confidence of the flagging Tamil comics Ulagam, as such. Now that we know that there is actually support to Tamil comics in all fronts.
To emphasize the historical importance of அரசு பதில்கள் Arasu Padhilgal, TCU can say only one thing: That it is THE longest running Question and answer section in Tamil weeklies. Yes, for more than 60 years, அரசு பதில்கள் Arasu Padhilgal is being published and it is the only section which is not changed over all these years (With “Find the 6 differences” No longer a regular & Lights on being started later than Arasu Padhilgal). This is what ரா.கி.ரங்கராஜன் has to say about the section:
Now,then; The next post will on the year end review post for the year ended 2010. Most probably that will be done by this week end itself and from Feb 2011 onwards, ComiRades will see a radical change in the number of posts in TCU.
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.
