Once upon a time, Sid Kotian and I decided to create a pitch for a mix of mythology, post-apocalyptic dystopian fantasy and a healthy dose of kick-ass action. The result was something we called HELHAMMER. We shopped it around (and trust me it garnered interest at some fancy places), but due to various reasons it didn’t make it through to the finish line. Sid and I moved on to other stuff, but this was always the one that got away 😀
Lately I’ve started working again on the script for this, because I’m absolutely in love with this world and its characters. For that reason, I won’t give away much of the plot (but I’m sure the astute reader will make the connection after one read) 😀 Just let me wrap up with this: The story has feuding gods, a wasteland wandering loner with a mysterious past, a severed head that talks and (my personal favorite) mutant hill-billy goat people with shotguns. 😉
So here’s the five page pitch that we prepared for shopping around. Do leave us some comments/crits
The comic is hosted on issuu.com and needs Flash to view. For mobile devices, you can install the ISSUU app from Android Market. As for Apple/iOS devices, hard luck 😀
As has been mentioned before
, there’s a series of digital short comics set in the Mumbai Confidential
universe. So the first of these shorts
called “REMASTER” (art by Siddharth Kotian) is now online
MUMBAI CONFIDENTIAL Digital Shorts are a series of companion comics to the first book “GOOD COP, BAD COP” by various artists using the characters created by Saurav Mohapatra and Vivek Shinde. These shorts are set in the same “universe” as the main story. Though these are not required to follow the main book, they do enhance the backstory of GOOD COP, BAD COP.
About Mumbai Confidential
Mumbai Confidential is a crime noir comic book series created by writer Saurav Mohapatra (DEVI, SADHU, MUMBAI MACGUFFIN, INDIA AUTHENTIC, JIMMY ZHINGCHAK) and artist Vivek Shinde (PROJECT: KALKI, SNAKEWOMAN) set in (of course!) the Indian city of Mumbai.
I’ve started collaborating with Sid Kotian (EAT THE DEAD, THE STRANDED) on a crime noir comic book set in Mumbai called MUMBAI CONFIDENTIAL. We just got the blog/site online at www.mumbaiconfidential.com. Site is still under construction, will update it with some fantastic pencils/inks Sid has sent in, soon-ish.
