One of the most admirable & love able artist of Indian Comic Book Industry ever, Comics Byte wishing a very happy birthday to Chandu Artist on 6th November (This post supposed to be published on 6th, alas, we couldn’t deliver it on time).

It was incredible to see the green snake man hanging on the ropes of roadside vendors while driving to school.

We love you, sir, and wishing you all the love and blessing from our small comic book community. Once again many many Returns of the day.
