Back in the eighties, comic books were highly successful in India. Foreign comic books like the DC and Marvel ones were simply out of reach of the common man. This gave rise to several local comic book publishers, who have today become iconic. We have had our tryst with Tinkle, but we also remember ‘Diamond Comics’ fondly. Indians growing up in the eighties and nineties will definitely remember the characters like Chacha Chaudhary, Sabu, Pinky, Billoo, Raman and others. Now, Diamond has announced the launch of their app, The Diamond Comics Digital Reading App, which will allow early subscribers to read their favorite comics for free. You can sign up for this offer via the link below:
Diamond Comics has a huge fan following and its characters are well loved and well received all over the world. The flagship character, Chacha Chaudhary has had a TV series too. Raghubir Yadav played the lead in the series. It will be interesting to see whether the mobile generation would take to the characters like an entire generation did, prior to them.
