BREAKING: Muthu / Lion Books are Available in Colombo

I always whine about the availability of the comics books in Colombo. Now in shops like Cargills and Vijitha Yapa you can find good number of comics. But for a long time we didn’t get Lion, Muthu comics to Sri Lankan market.

I used to call book shops in Colombo and continuously asked about the availability of the Comics books, but always bad luck followed me.

If you are someone from Colombo or any part of Sri Lanka, complaining about the availability of Tamil comics books (mostly Muthu/Lion) then I gotta happy news for you.

See the images below.
The Books Available @ shop

The Books I Bought. 

Poobalasingam book depot imported good number of books. See the pics. I read about it in Lion/Muthu Comics FB group. Went there and got the lottery. Each book costs 75 LKR (around 0.75 USD), but it is a good deal.

The shop manager told me that they’ll get the “இரத்தப்படலம் Collectors' Edition” too. What happy news for Sri Lankan Tamil Comics fan.

Don’t wait just hurry because I saw people are buying books like nothing. You don’t want to be disappointed.

Gays and Comics

I happened to watch a Tamil movie “GOA” recently. I really liked the movie but most of my friends end up blaming the movie for bringing up the GAY concept into the movie. Probably our society and people are not ready to see through such issues. Personally I can’t stand to see couple of guys romancing but I won’t bother to disturb them too. As I remember even Indian High Court ruled few months back favor to Gay marriages.

Why am I talking too much about Gays now?? Well, the answer is, the popular comics Archie has introduced a gay character into their comics. I’m not a great fan of these comics but happened to read few comics some years back.

The character, a blond newbie named Kevin Keller, will debut in No. 202 of Veronica Comics. In the initial story line, titled "Isn't It Bromantic?," Veronica is stymied when her womanly wiles hold no sway with Kevin, who has more in common with fellow foodie Jughead.

Let’s just wait and see the reception for these comics. I hope there won’t be any local politician jumping in and making big fuzz about these comics. After all, anything can happen in country where I live. “Sri Lanka”
