Super Sikh Comics Need A Little Less Conversation, A Little More Action

BLEEDING COOL
By Rich Johnston
Created by Eileen Alden and Supreet Singh Manchanda & Illustrated by Amit Tayal. Kickstarter through Feb. 4th, Publishing March 2015. Super Sikh: loves Elvis, hates bad guys!
Come meet our new superhero – Secret Agent Deep Singh, aka “Super Sikh”, in his first comic book series. At night, he’s on undercover missions destroying the plans of evil villains. By day, he’s working a technology job as a cover. What’s a Sikh? Well, badassoftheweek.com describes Sikhism as “one of the most badass religions this side of Valhalla.” It’s the 5th largest religion with 20+ million followers not just in India but all over the world. Its values are equality and justice for all people, regardless of gender, race, caste, or creed. So it sounds like a perfect setting for a superhero backstory, right? We think so! [link]
