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.

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.
