Comics are the Those thin books like Phantom, Archie or Spider-Man or Amar Chitra Katha volumes that one would read tucked inside textbooks in the back benches in class during some boring period. But the time has changed, now the is not for the entertainment only it also stablishes himself as Art-form and displayed in gallery. The recent development in comics is in grass wood level in social community/ non-fiction, guidebooks, journalistic work, academic research, poetry, and drama comics are doing them all, and inventing some new, undefined genres along the way too. The present study is to examine transformation and changing trends of comics which is relevant to the contemporary society, this study will also explore the potential of the medium, as an alternative medium in education and awareness of the common people who are marginalized by the mainstream media.

This study was designed to understand and evaluate the choice between friction and frictionless mechanics in extraction space closure. The orthodontics case sheets were evaluated to identify extraction cases. After examining 428 case sample tabulation of choice between friction and frictionless mechanics were examined. More female patients underwent orthodontic treatment. More cases were treated by friction mechanics rather than by frictionless mechanics. Only 55 cases of the whole were treated by loops for retraction and space closure. More orthodontists preferred retraction using friction mechanics which can be attributed to factors like being treated by faster mechanics, less cost and lesser demanding skill of clinician. The chair side time required is reduced
