3llers – A Trip to Sinland – Spoiler Free Review and Rating

0 0

Summary

3llers (Thrillers) – A Trip to Sinland is first English graphic novel published by Mayakanon publishers. Though this is not their first comic book. Mayakanon has published half a dozen comics before 3llers but all of those were focused on regional audience as they were in Bengali language.

3llers (Thrillers) – A Trip to Sinland is an anthology of 3 stories based on crime and thrillers genre. All three stories of this book are inspired by popular novels and are written by Indranil Kanjilal.

3llers Story – 5.5

A Place to Die for is inspired by Henry Slesar’s “The Right Kind of House”. This is not only the first but the best story out of all three. Kudos to both writer and illustrator who got successful to keep secret and suspense till the end. The artwork is black and white, but you never feel it in entire book. The noir art style did justice to the 3llers as you never feel the need of colors.

Just Like a Gentleman is inspired by Henry Slesar’s “Not the Running Type”. The story is mediocre and predictable. The good thing is it is the shortest one. The story isn’t new, and you can relate some of its ideas to the story of Badlapur. At least that is what picture it paints in our head.

The Knight Calls Murder! is inspired by Jack Ritchie’s “Remains to be Seen”. This is weakest story of all. It felt like it is more of an inspiration from all the Indian movies when you know that murder has happened, but director tries to not to confirm it till the end.

Concept

Concept of the comic book is interesting and that is what made us buy this book. However, the content could not satisfy us as much as the concept. So that means concept falls short too. We give it 6 for the concept.

Pace

The pace of first two stories is good but we barely managed to make it to the end because of the third story. We wanted to quit, but we kept going. For the pace it is 5.

Grip

A Place to Die is take away story from the book. This is a kind of story that was gripping and made enough impact on us to like Mayakanon publications. However, other two stories could not match its own standard. For grip, we give it 5.

Impact

As we said because of the first story, the impact was not bad. We give this book a 6 for impact.

3llers Dialogues – 6

We have mixed feelings here. There are a lot of dialogues in the book. In some pages, publishers forget that this is a graphic novel not a novel with illustrations. Dialogues are simple and understandable in first 2 stories but there are a lot of unnecessary dialogues in the third story which is “The Knight Calls Murder”.

3llers Inside Art – 7

The inside art compliments the stories. Even in the weakest story of the book, the artwork is what keeps you hooked till the end. Yet it is not the finest artwork in Indian comics, but it is good. The noir artwork worked positively for the Mayakanon comics.

3llers Cover – 8

Cover feeds curiosity for the book. It gives you glimpse of what you can expect from the comic book. The cover art can be rated higher than the average score. We give it 8.
