History of Tulsi Comics
Tulsi Comics published series of various regular characters like Tausi, Jamboo, Angara, Yosho, Yoga, Baaz and Mr. India. Other than these they also published illustrated stories of fairytales related to kings and queens, prince and princess, demons, dragons and ghosts and moral values. Moreover, the stories that were featured in Tulsi Comics were produced in arcs that continued for 2 to 3 issues at least and it never featured a complete short story in a single stand alone issue. This fact also added to the early demise of the comics magazine. As most of comics readers in the country are children with limited finances, the multiple issue story arc model ultimately backfired and Tulsi Comics lost its reader base and its popularity.
The most prominent story arc amongst these was the vast story of the character Jamboo which continued for numerous issues that lasted for over a year. Jamboo was amongst the best series released by the comics magazine in terms of innovativeness and concept. It was created by Ved Prakash Sharma and was the most successful character of Tulsi Comics. Further more several other characters such as Yoga, Tausi, Yosho, Angara, Mr. India and Baaz were also introduced by Tulsi Comics. But the new characters failed to capture the attention of the readers and the earlier characters continued to be multi-issue stories, which finally led to the death of the comics.
Tulsi Comics was published on a monthly basis and the frequency of comics published by Tulsi every month varied from 6 to 10 issues. The publishing house also released digests as special issues which were bigger that the usual comics and consisted of a collection of stories and comics.
