There is a new Superhero on the block. He is strong, he is muscular, he fights the baddies, he leads a double life, and he is a Sikh. Meet Deep Singh, who is breaking all the cliches and fighting the bad guys in his turban.
The Sikh superhero has been conceptualised by Oakland based writer Eileen Alden and Supreet Singh Manchanda, an executive from the Silicon Valley. The two set themselves a target of USD 5000 that would be required to publish the first three issues. They put up the project on Kickstarter to build up the investment. They collected their target amount within a day and very soon they exceeded their target hugely and accumulated over USD 22000. Now it remains to be seen whether the turban-clad superhero will catch the fancy of comic crazies.
