Hungama-Vol.1 No.10-March,1998

    Presenting another rarely know publication.This time its Hungama,which was published from Kodambakkam in Chennai.A monthly children s magazine,It seems to have tried to emulate the Tinkle model.It has its own versions of 'Tinkle Tricks and Treats','Tinkle tells you why' and 'Tinkle Super quiz'.There is also an uncle Hari just like uncle Pai,to whom readers write their views and opinions every month,which in turn were published under a section called 'Readers opinion' just like the 'Readers write' section in Tinkle.
    Another Unique feature about this magazine was that both its front and back covers had the same artwork,i.e.mirror images of each other.

Dolton Comics-Superman & Batman Vol.2 No.17

Presenting another Dolton cover.This issue was published on January 1st 1984.
These issues were published once every fortnight by Dolton.The earliest issue that I have is Vol.1.No.8 which was published on August 16,1982 and the most recent one I have is Vol.3 No.15 which was published on December 1st 1984.Considering that two issues were published every month between these two issues and taking into account the first seven issues(which I dont have),guess it would be safe to assume that atleast 63 comics were published by Dolton.If anyone has anymore information about the run of these comics,Please feel free to share.
