This blog is all about sinhalese comics and comic fans. I have come across several blog pages, face book pages that have been trying to offer some of the information of sri lankan comics. But unfortunately any of those sites does not offer our comic fans the pleasure of re-visiting the comic stories that they enjoyed over the years spanning from 60’s-90’s. Even though it was a short period of time, some of the comics artists and comics created it is place in our hearts. Comic lovers are still willing to pay anything to get hold of these comics because of their love for comics.
Renowned artists such as Daya Rajapaksha, Bandula harishchandra, Susil Premarathne etc. immensely contributed to the success of comics from the beginning. There have been several comic books and many number of comic artist but some of those artists are completely have been disappeared today. I urge all the fans to send me any information about comic artist that you might know. The comic artists, if they happen to come across either this blog or my website, can send me a brief description about themselves which will be added with a picture.
My website about sri lankan comics with in-deapth details about the history of comus, comic artists and etc. will be uploaded soon ( the site was online a year ago but had to close down since I was too occupied). Then there is face book fan page,SLCOMICS, which will be used to make aware of this blog and the website. Apart from that I will also upload some classic comic pages from various comic papers and artists.
This blog will be dedicated primarily for ‘comic stories’. I will upload some of the comics from some of the greatest comic artists in the country. You can select an artist from the ‘Artists’ menu and then select a story from that artist. ( only if available. As for now there will be only few stories but this will keep growing.) I have kept the blog really simple to make it easy for you to navigate. The side bar ( at the right hand side)will also help you to quickly find the comics or comic artists and read a particular comic story. This is where you can read a story from the beginning and to the latest episodes I have uploaded so far. The home page will be the place where you will see the current updates. ( updated daily so keep coming..)
Hope you guys will let me know how you like the blog. do post your comments, ideas and suggestions. share your ideas and suggestions. There is a opinion poll on face book page through which you can vote for your favorite comic artist. I ll also issue notifications on fb fan page about the comics that I upload here. (if it is a new story).
I would like to add that this blog or my website or fb fan page are not used for any commercial purpose. There is no motive to make money with these comics. I also don’t have any right over these comics. The soul purpose is to let another generation to know that there was such a medium as sinhalese comics and to keep alive that wonderful era for many more years.
