Updates, Reviews, and Previews

At long last, it’s finally happening. Just finalized the page lineup for the print hardcover version of Mumbai Confidential vol 1 “Good Cop, Bad Cop”, 144 pages chock-a-full of hardboiled goodness 🙂 We’ll be doing a final round of edits and sending that over to the printers in a week or so. Remember, the print version from Archaia hits the stands in Feb/March 2013. Meanwhile you can buy the “Digital First” editions at ComiXology store for iOS, Android and Web.

Fanboy Confidential posted a review of MC issues #1 and #2. They had good things to say about the book, and particularly for Vivek’s spectacular art. You can read the reviews here:

We had an awesome session at Mumbai Comic-con and many thanks to all those who attended. The photos of the session can be viewed on our facebook page. While you’re there, we’d love to get a “facebook like” from you. 🙂

And, last but not the least, just for kicks we created some posters for some fake “in-universe” movies featured in the book. I can’t give away the details (you’ll have to buy and read the book for that), but part of the story deals with an over-the-hill Bollywood actor who stars in movies with titles like “Gunda Coolie”,”Looteron ki Raftar”, “Inspector Hathoda”, “Bhaktiman”, “Bhaktiman Returns” and of course, the one you see below, “GUNDA DAROGA”. 🙂 So I took some of Vivek’s interior art and tried to come up with a poster for it. Hope you like it. Writing these scenes was kind of a nice change of pace from the hardboiled gritty/grim main story of the book.

Till next time…


Mumbai Confidential is a crime-noir comic book created by Saurav Mohapatra and Vivek Shinde. It’s now available digitally at ComiXology and the print hardcover edition from Archaia will be available in March 2013.
