I read a lot of comic books. When I was a kid my shelf was filled with comic books like ‘Chacha Chaudhary’ , ‘Pinki’ and others. Chacha Chaudhary (CC) was my favourite. I used to have a biggg collection of CC comics. I have read them like 100 times.We were in kolkata till I was 7 years old. Everytime Kolkata to chennai was a long journey, CC was my companion in that 2 days train journey. When we shifted I lost the entire collection 😦 😦 Even today if I have to travel a long distance, I prefer buying tinkle to other books 😉
Till I was 15, we used to live as a joint family.Myself and my cousin brothers S and B – we used to fight a lot. We fight for everything everytime except morning 7-8. It is the time when we all assemble in front of the TV and watch ‘Popeye Show’ and ‘Tom and Jerry’ together ( I watch these cartoons even today ) . Popeye show was our all time favourite. We watched even the repeats without any noise. You can say ‘Popeye’ was responsible for maintaining peace in the house 😀 Even during exam times we plan the breakfast/dinner timings to coincide with the Popeye Show. Later programmes changed , popeye became a modern guy and we stopped watching that show (I have the old ones in my laptop and watch it ).
In college, I got introduced to ‘Calvin and Hobbes’ . After joining work , I got introduced to reading comics online.Everyday after logging in the first thing I do is read the daily comic strips and some of my fav blogs.
This site gocomics.com is one of the best sites to read comics online . I start with ‘Calvin and Hobbes’. You can read it like 1000 times. You will never ever get bored.I love ‘Cul de Sac’ and ‘Lio’ too. Cul de sac talks about the adventures of a 4 year old girl Alice and her pre-school friends – Dill, Beny , Kevin and others. This one will definitely bring a smile on your face.My personal fav character is ‘Dill’ 🙂 And ‘Lio’ – it describes the adventures of a small kid Lio who is friends with monsters, aliens etc. His pets are a cobra (!), a spider, a cat and a giant squid. Best part is there is no dialogue in this comic strip. The author Mark tatulli is simpley a genius.
Here I am attaching few of my fav strips. Do read and enjoy !!!
P.S:- Sorry I could not directly embed the image here. I could only attach them as links. Read them when you are relaxed a bit or when you want to relax 🙂
Have a super duper week ! 🙂 🙂 🙂
