Well it's long since we reviewed the last batch of CineBook editions released in India this year, as back-issue sale from the UK based CineBook. Since we have a lot more issues to cover, I have gathered all the Children titles they released in this batch as a single post. They are a bunch of unknown comic characters, we have never read or heard in India before. The popularity of these titles also doesn't make them to be covered separately. All the batch of comics are created in Belgium, and many of them are still being published with new titles every year.
First-up, is Ducoboo, famously termed as the 'King of Dunces', created by Zidrou and Godi in 1992. The series follows the adventures of Ducoboo, and his mischief making acts. It typically consists of assortment of small acts, which generally spans one or two pages. The stories are hilariously portrayed, and Cinebook have come up with 2 volumes of Ducoboo. Each volume depicts a full year in School with the last gag always ending up as portrayed in Summer Holidays.
When you browse through these books, you can identify that the header of each storyline will eventually be based on the plot of that particular act, depicted in few simple pictures. That's the amount of detail Zidrou and Godi have concentrated on while making these comics.
