Airtel has an old partnership with the ROK Entertainment Group, of which ROK Comics is a part. You can also read the same comics online at Wap.rokcomics.com for free, though GPRS charges will apply in case of ROK Comics.

Content Content available at Airtel/ROK Comics includes Alpha gods, Animal crackers, Crazy Mary, Crumb, El Profe, Ex Astris, Hanuman, Krishan Aur Jarashand, Love Is, Madd Science, Mandy, Mangal Pande, Millenium Bug, Nagraj: Teen Sikke, The Family Stone, The Perishers, Vasudev Krishna by Raj Comics, Popeye, Dick Tracey, Wacky World of Animals, Wet Paint, Doga, Akbar, Birbal, Tenaliraman, Jataka tales and comics by publisher Amar Chitra Katha (ACK Media).
