ALL IT NEEDS IS A GIRL'S TOUCH

Lena Dunham writer of the popular HBO series Girls is set to write a 4-Part Archie comics story. The newly appointed Chief Creative Officer Roberto Agguire-Sacasa hired her after she expressed an interest in the comic at Q&A last November.

"We sent her a box of tons of Archie books," Aguirre-Sacasa says. "She devoured them all, and maybe a week or two later came back with her pitch." While the CCO is reluctant to share any plot specifics for the unnamed episode, he notes that the 2015 comic series will be "set in the Archie continuity" and is also "very contemporary."

You won't see any superheroes or villains in this comic and you won't see any "Slumdog Millionaire'' characters either. TheHindu.com reports on a comic that focuses entirely on real life situations and of staying away from drugs and alcohol.

'Reach out! With Veera and Chera' — a comic book with seven episodes in it, by Loyola College student Vijay Asokan, was released at the Outreach Day–2014 celebrations of the college's department of outreach, on Monday.'

It is a simple strip in the form of an interaction between Veera, a Loyola college student who visits the slums as part of the outreach programme, and Chera, a child from the slum who handles challenges normally faced by children in slums in the cities.'
