amazing TCP..do you create these toons yourself...if yes, i must say, a wonderful effort. by the way, i got introduced to your blog long back through another blog which had listed your blog (http://aljaljira.blogspot.com/)...thanks for the many comics you have posted and starting this amazing trend of scanning old Indian comics.

Prabhat's Books and Comics said...

Amazing! That's why I say you are number #1 blogger, no matter how many one posts or number of visitors today. I'm saying from heart.

Venkitachalam Subramanian said...

Good one, TCP! Like someone mentioned, you were the one that started it all - the business of scanning and posting IJCs. I leecheda lot of comics from you and that is the reason why I sent you the first bunch, when I started scanning and sharing my collection of comics.

Your new avatar is equally entertaining and informative. Keep it up.

Rahul Viswanath said...

Good one TCP ..... Check this

The Comic Project said...

@apoorva chandar: You are the one of ACK-scan fame :-) Yes, the toons are mine - both the good ones and the bad ones. The artwork for one of them was by flyyoufools.com. Glad you like them.
@prabhat: You are too nice my friend :-) especially while running the Indrajal marathon with Usain Bolt speed, i.e. the rate at which you scan and post.
@VenKIT: Was very happy that you picked me but also that you chose to spread the comics around. It really has compensated for my lack of speed and given the other blogs a much needed new contributor. As far as the new avatar goes, the comical things happening around us deserve to be laughed at, although sometimes it is sad and pathetic. Hoping to churn out more. There are so many, just so many ideas ..so many..but time and skills slow me down
@Rahul: thanks :-) lol cheatambaram is a nice name..

Fly, You Fools Comics said...

Haha! Bound to happen.

May I invite your institute to invest in a good supply of Viva La Revolucion shoes for it's members?

To throw back at protesters?

Radz said...

awesome stuff .. love your creativity :)

Rafiq Raja said...

Lovely Shoe-Toon.... TCP.... I hope no one takes a print-out and distributes in Delhi.. otherwise, our politico-bosses would take it for real, and might be interested to know the time and venue for the seminar.... It has become an important one to learn and master you know :)

No one has claimed No.1, so far... so I will leave it to Sunshine to claim the same....
(Sunshine: see I listened to you :)


Prabhat's Books and Comics said...

TCP: Can you change wen jiobio to Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin? Message will be more clear, really lovely. :)))

Laughing since last night. :))))))

The Comic Project said...

@flyyoufools: Absolutely. and you can also supply IIP with the shoes required for shoe dodging lessons. The name is very appealing too :)
@radz: Thanks. Our pols provide the best inspiration
@comicology: No one from that area really reads this..so we are safe..phew!
@sunshine: see how gracious comicology is trying to be
@prabhat: did Putin also get a shoe thrown at him? If not, I must say that the IIP does not hire people who fake their CVs. :p

Sorry I didn’t explain.

You are true. No, Putin didn’t receive. He is cool person, avoided as much violence he can. However, some tried to organized ……., now they are jail & receiving per day…… If others can teach how to receive, he can teach how to return.

I read this massage as:
Makes Promises – G.W. Bush ( SOME PROMISE TO CLOSE ALL BLOG)
Inciting Violence- W. Jiabao
Giving Hate Speeches – P.Chidambaram (SOME SAY WILL START HATING)

If you take V.V. Putin or start another institute, it’d be more contemporary not only for Indian Politics, but Indian blogging too. :)))

By the way IIP is my desk top picture now. Can’t stop laughing. You changed all mood. Thank you very much. :)))

The Comic Project said...

@prabhat: the making promises, inciting violence, giving hate speeches was a comment on what is happening right now. This is what many politicians do and get away with easily by giving the most stupid excuses and knowing fully well that the law and order machinery won't touch them.

The instructors were selected purely on merit - for their shoe dodging experience :-)

Putin, now what to say about him - KGB, martial arts, politics all rolled into one :-) But I heard there were also a "putin" condoms available in Russia..any idea about that? A photo would be awesome!

Prabhat's Books and Comics said...

Rechecked all sources, one of my working field is Pharmaceuticals. There is Brand “Rasputin” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grigori_Rasputin) who was in period of Nikolai Alexandrovich Romanov the last Tsar of Russia .

But have vodka PUTINKA ( in Russian- Путинка ), oficially company didn’t announced about motivation source V.V. Putin. All understand without it, however there is no photo of Putin. I can send photo of it bottle; some more interesting photo & cartoons of Putin.

Hello TCP
This is a really good one.
The posted design and lettering are simply superb.
Here is bit of news which everyone seems to have missed:
On 5th Feb., 2009, in Stockholm, The Israeli ambassador to Sweeden, Mr. Benny Dagan was hit by a shoe, 2 books and a note pad!!
And guess what, the shoe actually hit the ambassador on his stomach!
No misses this time.
You know, with all this incidents, a new security rule may come up, at any political meetings, Journalists will have to remove their footware before entering the hall/room.

The Comic Project said...

@Prabhat: send some through. will be interesting to look at them
@jai: Thanks :) I wasn't aware of that..a shoe, 2 books and a note pad..almost sounds like pati, patniyaan aur woh :p
Yeah. press conferences will become temples now. And people will wait outside to steal shoes too.
thanks for visiting

Jai said...

Temple..wow yes temple.
The speaker/neta will be the diety,
The journelist the devoties.
What about we the people outside?
I guess we will be fingering our noses as usual. Yuck!!

The Comic Project said...

@jai: ouch! :-)

Prabhat's Books and Comics said...

OK. Already collected some, searching more. Wait my reply mail.
These will be divided in three categories:
1. Original photo + photo of bottle
2. Photoshop versions
3. Russian cartoons with English translation



The Comic Project said...

@prabhat: Thanks..let's see how to post this on the blog :)
