The crime thriller set in Kolkata is a part of a series of crime novels
involving Indrajit Ray,our protagonist and his recurring villain Black
Diamond who keeps coming back at each volume to provide sleepless nights,
An escape of inmates from the prison prompts a series of bank heists
around the city which results in the return of Indrajit Ray from his
hiatus and eventually capture the goons through his innovative technique.
This pulp fiction comic book would remind the readers about a "Dick
Tracy"ish style comics. Narayan Debnath's illustration and compositions
give the comic book an almost black and white film like feel to it,and
thus transcends the readers to believing they were watching a crime
thriller. The storyline it self is extremely pulpish although slightly
abrupt at some moments but alltogether it is an original sounding classic
comic literature which seems to be fading away in Bengal.
I'm posting a few images from the book, do enjoy!!
