Sufi Comics at Comic-Con Express Mumbai: Photos & Press

by | Nov 30, 2011 | Events, In the Media | 2 comments

Since the time I’ve been working on Sufi Comics, I’ve been reading about Comic-Con conventions that take place in the US and Europe.  I used think how great it would be to have a Comic-Con in India, to showcase Indian comics that are unique in their own right.

Then earlier this year to my surprise I read in the papers that India organized their first Comic-Con in Delhi, and the next one was coming up in Mumbai.  In a way the timing was perfect ’cause “40 Sufi Comics” had just gotten released.  Arif didn’t waste any time in booking a stall and in Oct of 2011 we found ourselves behind a stall in Comic-Con Mumbai promoting “40 Sufi Comics”. It was a wonderful opportunity to meet Comic Artists & enthusiasts around the world.

Just by the sheer number of footfalls at the convention, one could see the rise in demand for Comics and Graphic Novels.  Comics are a very powerful medium and instead of just mere entertainment, I hope they are used for spreading positive messages to tackle the social issues our World faces.

“40 Sufi Comics” received a very warm welcome from visitors and the media. Our books got sold out, and many expressed their interest in future volumes.  We’re looking forward to participate in Comic-Con 2012!  Press clippings & Photographs below:
