Minnal Mayaavi

One day in 1976, June Month
 Editor Mullai Thangarasan introduced a new comics in the name of “Mayaavi Comics” through “Mathi Nilayam”. In that he introduced his new character “Minnal Mayaavi” and it is the name of the comics.

As per the story “Mark bureau” a private detective company working with the help of Government and the detective officer “Prabu” his number “Mark 8” is meeting his head on his urgent invitation.

The detective head briefed to him that the “Sarvathesa Mosadi Kumbal” have produced currency notes of small countries in bulk and trying to create inflation and financial crisis in those countries and their Gang leader hiding in “Elakkadavu” located “Anaimalai” in Tamizhagam. The detective head has given the responsibility to catch those into Prabu.

When Prabu came out after taking over this charge, a mysterious gang came in car tried to shoot at him and a bike was trying his dash him and a lorry came to over run Prabu missed the target and dashed with a tree.

Is Mark Bureau losing is its strong hold, how the opposite party got the news. Thinking this in mind, Prabu was running towards to escape and finally he caught a train but he was captured by “Mosadi Gumbal” and brought in front of the leader “Digambaran”. After exchange hot arguments, Digambaran said he will cut Prabu into pieces and send to his head. At first he ordered to cut Prabu’s finger. But Prabu jumped into the forest river and escaped. After hearing this Digambaran throwing his assistants who are responsible into the same river. Prabu rescued them and joined hands with them and advancing towards that mysterious

Suddenly a sound raised have shacked the forest. A mysterious shuttle has landed from the sky near Digambaran’s Bangalow. A man came out from the shuttle called himself “Samrang” a planet living and his space shuttle “Se Dang” had a trouble while flying that is why he has landed here and he will fly again after repairing his shuttle.

In this situation, Digambaran, the leader of “Sarvadesa Sadigara Gumbal” (International Looters Gang) talking with nice words and taken him to his secret Bangalow and torturing him to tell the secret of “Minsara Kathir Marmam” (Mysterious Electric Wave).

Here, Prabu taking the responsibility of rescuing the plant-man, appeared in Digambaran’s bungalow. The gangsters got collapsed when Prabu & Co stuck them suddently but Prabu was caught under the gun-tip and tied-up with tree got his finger’s cut. Even the gangsters can’t see and closed their eyes, as per Editor Mullai Thangarasan.

In this situation, Minnal Kiraha Manithan (Space man), Samrang brings down the Machine shaped Iron and attacked Digambaran and his gang and destroyed them.

After this Samrang took Prabu into his shuttle and made him unconscious and fixed steel fingers instead of the wounded fingers when Prabu tried to rescue him. Moreover, he fixed different weapon in every fingers the they will disappear when there is lightning wave and also he named Prabu as Minnal Mayaavi.

Whenever there is Lightning wave in the sky, the hand shape will disappear and if required it can be demanded from the Space shuttle "Sedang" by signaling to it and Samrang asked Prabu to bring all the perpetrators to the justice by using this power.

Editor Editor Mullai Thangarasan had made a feeling page by page through out the comics by imprinting a marvelous story. It is very unfortunate that cine field did not utilize the very intelligent Editor Mullai Thangarasan.

Artist Chellam alias Chellappan, drawn the cartoon comedy for JAM JIM JACK characters. He had drawn a very serious action pictures which are straight opposite to Minnal Mayaavi characters. He had not drawn the pictures just casually but using all his talents with great involvement he drawn the pictures with powerful imagination. He gave the real feelings like angry, carelessness, happiness and sadness on the faces of all the characters genuinely. Not only this, sky, cloud, office, table and flower pack on that, he left nothing without art.

See you in the next post.

Best Regards,

  1. Captain Hechai,

    Me The First. Very Good Post.

    Here are some more updates on this wonderful Story.

    As mentioned By Captain, This story was published in 1976 and Am being the Very lucky few who have this multi colour book. Still captain beats me in the context that i do not have the front cover of this book.

    However, There is one more thing that needs to be added on this post: The reprint of the story. Yes sir, the same story was reprinted in the Mid 80's in Black and White and Yes, I Also have this copy with me (Lucky me).

    Dr 7 Has already mentioned about that B & W Story in one of the MuthuFan's Postings: Here is the link =

  2. Captain Hechai,

    Here are some more interesting information about the Book:

    1.very recently i got to know that in most of the mullai thangarasan's stories, He tries to make a character which resembles him the most (Just like some directors who always make a guest apperance in all their films).

    Even in this story, In the initial pages, there will be a Inspector who comes to help The hero and Look very close & you will get the Manly Figure of Mr Mullai Thangarasan.

    Not only in this story, but in most of the stories as well.

    2. The hero has a striking similarity towards The Then King of Silver Screen M.G Ramachandran. Yes, most of the mannerisms and looks of the hero character is straight from MGR. Look close again and you will find that. Even Dr 7 Has mentioned about this.

  3. அருமையான பதிவு. தயவு செய்து தொடர்ந்து இதே போல் ஆங்கிலத்தில் பதிவுகள் போடவும்....
    அட்டைபடம் யார் வரைந்தது. செல்லம் மாதிரி தெரியவில்லையே??

  4. நண்பரே,
    இந்த கதைகளை எல்லாம் நான் படித்தது இல்லை. படங்களை போட்டு அசத்தி விட்டீர்கள்.விரல் மனிதர்களை ஆவலுடன் எதிர்பார்க்கிறேன்.

  5. Dear Friends,

    I thank you for your valuable comments.

    As King Viswa said, I am aware that the black & white was published in 1979 as Mathi Comics, edited by Subramaniam (Valar Mathi). There will be a posting regarding this soon.

    According to Artist Chellam, he did not copy the image of MGR in his arts even though it looks like MGR. But one thing I heared that Mullai Thangarasan published comics with MGR's image before he joined Muthu Comics.

    Mr.SIV, I wish to continue writing in English but it is not very much famous among tamil viewers and they don't visit. I may start writing in Tamil in order to support and encourage the tamil viewers.

    Mr. Lucky Limat, thanks for your comments, Viral Manithargal Posting to be launched soon...Expect it...

    Captain Hechai

  6. காமிக்ஸ் நண்பர்களே,

    வேறு ஊரை சேர்ந்த யாரோ ஒருவர் ஒவ்வொரு மாதமும் சென்னைக்கு வந்து சென்னையில் கிடைக்கும் பல நூறு அரிய காமிக்ஸ் புத்தகங்களை கொள்ளையடித்து, அதனை பதுக்கி செல்கின்றனர். ஆனால் சென்னையில் இருக்கும் பல காமிக்ஸ் ரசிகர்கள் தமிழ் காமிக்ஸ் கிடைக்கவில்லை, தமிழ் காமிக்ஸ் கிடைக்கவில்லை என்று அவதிப்படுகிறார்கள். இந்த கொடுமைகளுக்கு வழியே இல்லையா?
