Estilo Hindu - A Mexico City Comicbook
A hand-drawn non-fiction comic about Mexico City in 2015. Contains stories about street-side electric shocks, nightclubs named after forgotten globe-trotting radicals, the magical realism of the city's street names, a 25-year old dance battle, the idiosyncrasies of the city's museums, a long-running counterculture market and a spiritual experience disguised as a 'mud bath.'

I'm an Indian-Singaporean comic book bloke (previously) and I visited Mexico City in January 2015.

This is the biggest project I've ever undertaken. It's 52 pages and 6 chapters, and there are a couple of ways to read this online:

Through the Pulp Viewer, on my website
PDF online, via Issuu
PDF download, via Gumroad

Please do give me your thoughts and feedback. If you're in Seattle, I'll be releasing this in print at the Short Run festival on October 31. Come say hi!
Role: writer and illustrator

Excellent! I haven't read this yet: but 'instantly familiar' is exactly how I felt when I got to Mexico!
