Muthu #309: Sithiramum Kolluthadi
Muthu #309 featuring Nick Raider, aka., Detective Robin (as he is christened in Tamil Comics), titled "Sithiram Kolluthadi" (சித்திரமும் கொல்லுதடி) has closely followed the Lion release this month, which is an encouraging sign from the Prakash Publishers.
Nick Raider Stories are known for their plot-work, coupled with eye-catching artwork. This issue doesn't disappoint us on that account. Mr. Vijayan should be credited for choosing the title for the stories, which he weaves around the main plot of the storyline.
The story revolves around the murder of a Prom-Queen, and the mysteries surrounding it. Nick and his partner gets down in finding the real killer, on the way interrogating different persons involved with the life of the deceased, and their link to the incident. With the help of the Physically challenged kid next door, and his extraordinary skill in drawing the future, Nick successfully nabs the culprit. As usual, the killer at the end turns out to be an unexpected person, as it is common on the Nick Raider / Detective Robin stories.
The exchanges of Nick and his ever-angry chief sums up the humour part to the storyline.
In Comics Time Editor acknowledges that the last edition of Muthu #308, indeed carried the Old Cover Art of Johny Nero, despite the issue featuring the John Steel exploits. Remember that you read about it first on Comicology. :)
The next Muthu Edition will see the back of Martin Mystery. I always liked the science and magic mixed story plots of his, something unique among the other stars. A Visual treat to one's imagination. That makes "Ponnil Oru Pinam", an eagerly awaited edition.
Back Cover carries the Teaser to XIII Special, which should take the accolades for the longest thought project ever made by Prakash Publishers.
Hopefully that should be out by the end of this year.
