Comics may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it sure can be taught over a cup of coffee. At least that is what Comic-Con which organised a workshop on comic book writing at Heart Cup Coffee in Hyderabad this Sunday believes.
Comic-Con India was started four years ago by a group of young folks in Delhi who wanted to visit a Comic-Con but despaired of the expenses involved. Since its inception, Comic-Con has been conducting conventions in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Hyderbad.
Jai Undurti, who has been associated with Comic-Con since a couple of years, conducted the workshop organised by Comic-Con, he touched upon several aspects of comic writing ranging from basic story writing to picture work. He also elaborated upon the process of creation of superheroes in comics. After his session, every regular comic book enthusiast in attendance had acquired a blueprint for the creation of a comic book superhero-complete with costume, cover identity, sinister nemesis, love life, and of course, a superpower. Students who attended the workshop went home infused with a desire to create their own comics.
The audience also saw ‘Necropolitans’, Undurti’s occult-themed superhero series which comprises of art by the renowned artist Harsho Mohan Chattoraj. The workshop was part of a series of similar events organized in the run up to the upcoming Hyderabad Comic-Con.
