Happen to find some of my old sketching recently. I dotingly remember making these sketches sitting at the back row of the class during my engineering days. What fun Sugu, Cithapu, Magee & myself used to have [2004].
“The Game” character is a retired ex-operative of the Indian intelligence faction [IIF]. A Government sector so secretive and small, whose sole purpose of existence was to exterminate all anti-national ideologies or elements. The operations of this department effectively dealt with terrorism during the 80’s & 90’s. Well, when IIF started operations on corruption within India; some serious shit started happening. Orders were given left and right for mass extermination of faulty candidates. Alarm raisers within/outside the organization were silenced [Ragiv Gandhi – at one point]. Top officials within IIF were corrupt. Disassembly of IIF is what happened next and all operations of IIF was closed [i.e. means covert operative members –terminated]. Some of them escaped and live among us now with false identities.
One such escapee is” the Game” [real name unknown]. IIF’s “shadow” program artificially enhanced the brain n body of the soldiers for effective use in covert missions. Game was one of the first voluntary test participants of Shadow. Now an aging survivor of the program, he lives a nomadic life.
This small comic strip of 7 pages explores the mystery life of Game and his primary source of income, underground gangland fighting competitions. Huge bucks are on bet every other weekend on such fight to death mêlée, which perfectly suits Games secretive past. The strips are all “no dialogue” boxes and produced here as raw scans, but still I try to convey a story. A story called The Game – Gangland wars
