NYCC 09 was … ummm… fruitful.
Things got moving. Am currently discussing two OGN’s with a reputed publisher. One of them of course is Mumbai Confidential and the other is tentatively called “A Heaven For Trishanku” about a man released from jail after 40 years and finding that the world outside has moved on.
Greatbong pointed out that the premise for AHFT was similar to Tahader Katha and with my heart in my mouth, I immediately saw Tahader Katha on Jaman. Whoa! Imagine my relief when I found that beyond the basic premise about a man being released from prison and encountering a changed world, there is not much more in common. AHFT is more about the protagonist’s search for redemption, trying to find that one thing that underlines his life as not having been wasted. BTW, Tahader Katha is a masterpiece, do check it out when you have the time.
Also made real headway in a long pending pitch called SYZYGY, a fantasy graphic novel about a world where the avatars of the twelve zodiac signs control reality. Hopefully that will see daylight this year
