Amar Chitra Katha-Oz Naatu Mayavi

Presenting a rare gem of a Tamil cover today. This can be described as one of the ten 'mythical' forefathers of Amar Chitra Katha (ACK) as we know it today.I call them as mythical, because everyone knows that the first ten issues exist, but it is extremely hard to find one.

 As history goes, the first ten issues of ACK were reprints of popular western folktales and it was not until issue No.11 that indigenous stories began appearing, starting with 'Krishna'.Another interesting fact is that these ten issues were published only in regional languages and not in English.

This is issue No.8 and titled in Tamil as 'Oz Naatu Mayavi' which as you would have guessed from the cover stands for 'Wizard of Oz'. This comic was published sometime in 1967
