The stunt is an action-packed comic that revolves around a teenage boy Samir. Samir’s father was a stuntman who lost his life while performing a stunt during a film shoot. Samir was a kid then. He now works as a body double to a Bollywood actress, attending weekly therapy sessions, has a love interest Aahana in his college (who loves someone else), his mother is an aerial yoga instructor and has only one friend Bablu; which is same case for Bablu too. His life was perfectly normal until one day when he crossroads with some of the evillest people in the world. To get him out of the situation, his mother had to intervene and uncover all the secrets of his family which were kept hidden from him until now. According to me, the stunt is must read comic of 2020
My Ratings for Stunt – 10/10
Here is the breakdown of the ratings:
Stunt – Story, its Impact, Grip, and Concept – 10
The stunt is my most favourite comic out of all 3 indusverse comics.
It is undoubtedly the best comic out of all three indusverse releases so far. There are valid reasons for that. The story is fresh which is a difficult feat to achieve when the industry is filled with so many superheroes and their origin stories already. I do not know if you feel same or not but sometimes it feels like the story is being told unnecessarily to introduce a superhero to the audience. This is not same as you enjoy every piece of the story and never feel like you need to hurry to see a superhero.
There is no weakling in the story. Even the use of English and hinglish was used in good proportion this time that finally pays off. Like Hydra says, “discovery need experimentation”.
- The story is 10.
- The impact is 10
- The grip is 10
- The concept is 10
My total score for the story, its Impact, Grip, and Concept is 10
Stunt – Cover page – 10
Stunt has won silver for the best cover page in comic con India 2020 awards. By looking at cover you can see why it won. The stunt in the cover art of stunt looks awesome. The cover page is 10 out of 10 as it resembles exactly as its title. It also gives glimpse of what you can expect from the content.
- The cover art is made by Sanket
- The cover colors are done by Neel
Stunt – Dialogue and Lettering – 10
The dialogues are one of the elements that made this comic so impactful. I found most of the dialogues humorous and funny which made the comic more enjoyable. The dialogues were written so good that this time it did not bother me if they are written in English or hinglish. Though on a note, the use of whatsapp language commonly called as hinglish was comparatively less in this issue.
- The editing is done by Nupur Sharma
- The letters are done by Mandaar Gangele
Stunt – Inside Art – 10
One word for the inside art is awesome. Sometimes it isn’t just about the high contrast and colors that makes an art look good. The inside art is done by Saumin Suresh Patel. This is first time I saw his work. What I liked most about this comic is the attention given to the faces of these characters. Every character of this comic looks like they are real person. In only first few pages, I was curious about who the artist is and I searched for Saumin Suresh Patel on facebook and Instagram. He hasn’t just worked on the looks of character but gave soul to them as well. I mean I can point out Sameer by looking at his face even if he isn’t in his normal get up as well. In my point of view, it is seen very few times.
Stunt – Verdict:
Stunt is truly a masterpiece and that justifies its perfect score of 10. First, the outrage and now the stunt has summed up my hype for the next issues of the Indusverse. There is no weakness in the story. Even the experimentation of English and hinglish was used in good proportion here which finally pays off the unique idea behind it.
