Tatty Mane – King of the Jungle

Hi folks,

its been almost a month since the last post and am still getting accustomed to the new lifestyle of mine. difficult, but not impossible. lets hope that iam alive to make some comics posts here and there.

This time am going to talk about one of my favourite comics characters and unfortunately i have read that in my mother tongue only (Tamil). Here is the only one available version of that character in English in India, so far.

This character is called “Tatty mane – king of the jungle” and he was named aptly in Tamil as “Parattai thalai raja” which was more or less very much similar to the name in English. this character was used to appear in Tamil in Prakash publisher’s Lion comics, mini lion and this issue which were published in the English in the early 90’s.

Now, we have already discussed about this series in our blog here. so, here is the 4th book in the series and in that, we had a collection of many short stories. here are the cover scans.

This series had almost all of my fav comics characters such as X ray specs, steel claw etc in one book. here is one of the Tatty mane story in multi colour. I think that this story has appeared in mini lion in neelap pei marmam.

the scans are differentiated to make the readers understand the role of the photoshop in scanning. this story appeared in puratchi thee of mini lion.
