Strolling across the fag end of West Mumbai’s Yari Road, an upscale vicinity of Versova, my gaze fell on a smattering of comic-book characters sprayed on the bordering wall of what looked like a pretty decent cafe to hang out for a soirée. Leaping Windows, an interesting place I cajoled my friend into accompanying me to, for a cup of coffee, looked apropos on some fronts. It was a sunny afternoon.

7:00 pm PDT 13/02/2019 By Parth Kaushik

We often fawn over the stories from the mainstream wellsprings of the international platforms. The stories that have captured imaginations across the world on account of their scale and grandeur. The preoccupation with the mainstream stories that inundate the repository makes the content reposed in the niches escape our attention. Nevertheless, those stories represent the true spirit and essence of the geography they emerged from, being just as worthy of a wider platform. It is commendable that publications and institutions take … Read More

6:00 pm PDT 04/02/2019 By Parth Kaushik

Many profound works of animation have managed to puncture a hole in the long-held yet ignorant perception that animated cartoons only appeal to kids. Yet there is some ground to cover when it comes to giving the same credence to comic books and graphic novels.  Last year when political commentator and comedian Bill Mahr publically lampooned and undermined the fandom around Stan Lee and comic books, the debate of whether comic books and graphic novels are sources of depth and substance or … Read More

A Song of Heroes opens with servile overtures as the winged minions that serve the Red Wizard buzz about in his service. Here we witness how Red Wizard’s oppressive emerald eyes have an evil glint as he looms over his fiefdom, setting the tone for what he is up to. As we go along learning about the motives of characters, we are made aware of the object they are all in search of; the proto-skull. The multiracial microcosmic universe in … Read More
