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.
The first installment of the Mumbai Confidential series is a one-shot OGN titled GOOD COP, BAD COP and is about the Encounter Specialist cops of Mumbai Police, who were given the nod by the establishment to carry out extra-judicial killings of gangsters.
MC is an attempt by the creators to capture some of their fondest memories of gritty crime / pulp novels and movies that are a staple of bollywood as evidenced by the works of Ram Gopal Verma and Anurag Kashyap
It is inspired by the Hong Kong crime flicks of John Woo and Johnnie To as well as seminal crime-noir comics like Frank Miller’s Sin City, Ed Brubaker’s Criminal, Brian Azarello’s 100 BULLETS and Greg Rucka’s Gotham Central.
MC is intended for a mature audience due to strong language and violence.
