XIII Collector's Edition in Colombo

XIII collector’s edition has been a dream for those who live in Sri Lanka. If you call Lion comics office they’ll ask to send demand draft and if u try to get a demand draft from bank they’ll say NO as Sri Lankan government have strict rules to avoid money flowing out of the country. Yeap, true if you go with documents they’ll give you demand draft but for buying a comics book where on earth we can get documents??

I really wish Lion comics will setup an online portal with credit-card or PayPal payment method. Both sides can benefit from this method as we can avoid any dealer fee!

Recently Vimalaharan commented on one of my posts about the availability of the book in Colombo. I checked it myself and came home with jackpot :). Thanks Vimalaharan.

Those who are willing to buy the XIII book in Colombo, Sri Lanka can buy it from the fruit shop next to Kathiresan kovil, Bambalapittiya (Colombo-4). Book is priced around 700 LKR. Currently they don’t have any book with them but you can place an order via them. Also they have few collection of old Lion and Muthu comics which worth a look. Alternatively you can reach them for inquiries via phone at +94-11-2590346

Good luck comics addict. See you all soon in another post. I'm busy right now with the book lol :P
