*provided by Netgalley*This was a surprisingly good and amazing intro to a series (This was just issue #1). I'm glad to see more diverse heroes.
This issue sets up the series, or seems to. If you are thinking Batman type action, this really isn't for you. It is about hero who is a hero because he is a good person.I love his cousin.
It was nice to read a book with a Sikh lead playing a James Bond-ish role. People who don't know about Sikhism would love to learn some of the concepts. To me, the cultural references seemed a tad bit forced. It felt like the purpose of the aunt's and uncle's dialogues were just to brag about the hero. Otherwise, it was a good read. Despite giving it a 3 star rating, I would highly recommend it and am looking forward to the next book in the series.Note: I received a free copy of the book from th [...]
**Received this from Netgalley, for an honest review.**3.5 / 5 starsI really loved the illustrations and I felt that the main character was really fun/engaging. I did enjoy that racial / religious profiling was an aspect that was explored, and the action was really well done, I just wish there was more to this than the brief 28 pages. Also kudos for more representation and a rather enjoyable Sikh superhero!
Free copy provided by Netgalley in return for an honest reviewRating: 5 / 5Publication Date: 26th April 2017Review Date: 28th March 2017I was browsing and getting some comics to read from Netgalley because I had some time to kill, and I came across this comic book. I just had to grab this. I have to support this comic book no matter what.Oh. My. Gosh.This was absolutely amazing. I have fallen in love with Deep Singh. His character is well put together and obviously really cares about those he lo [...]
*ARC provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.*I know this is just the introduction to this world but it was done so well, the illustrations and the use of colour were absolutely gorgeous and now I can't wait to read more from this. I started caring about the characters and about the story and there are so many important commentaries just in this one issue. I also love that is #ownvoices and it brings so many of the Sikh tradition, culture and identity to the page [...]
Not quite what I was expecting, but still intriguing enough that I'll keep reading the series.Note: I received a digital review copy of this title through NetGalley.
33/45 books read in 2017.Fun, quick & it is great to read about a hero who isn't american (or white). I have no clue whether all the cultural references are accurate. Part 2 here I come :)
Yes! This kind of thing is just what we need to add diversity to our lineup of male superheroes. I'm hopeful it'll dispel negative stereotypes about Sikhs and Sikhism, on top of giving insight into actual Sikh values and beliefs.Deep Singh is a badass who likes to do things in style. He's a modern day superspy/superhero who also happens to be a Sikh, which is an important part of his life. He's likable and cares about the people around him, and he also has a sense of humour.This first issue is v [...]
This is a story about a super spy agent, Deep Singh (pronounced dheep, not deep) who has just gone on a spy mission, returned and is on the way to a holiday when a racist officer confuses him with someone else. That’s it. Nothing else. That’s the whole story. I don’t think this counts as a spoiler because there really is nothing. While the art itself was classic and lovely, the story writing was below average. I thought it felt like something you write in school and then decide to stick to [...]
Netgalley freebie. Book Riot Read Harder Challenge 2017: Read a debut novel.Loved this comic from the start! A Sikh special agent going undercover to thwart real life bad guys while experiencing depressing realistic racism along the way. Plus he loves Elvis and his family. The artwork was colourful and well thought out. Definitely want to read the next in the series.
I am delighted to discover a badass superhero in a turban! This is a classic comic book, not a full graphic novel. It’s 24 pages of full-colour panels, and issue one, Takeoff and Landing, introduces readers to Deep Singh, our hero, who works for the United Nations Global Unified Defense Force protecting the world on secret agent missions. He has just succeded in fighting the Taliban to ensure girls have access to education. Exhausted, Deep fights to keep awake on the drive home from Pakistan t [...]
'Super Sikh #1' by Eileen Kaur Alden, Supreet Sing Manchanda, and Amit Tayal is a different kind of superhero than I'm used to reading about in Western culture, but in lots of ways, he's not that different.Deep Singh has secrets. He loves Elvis and hates the Taliban. His parents think he works for a tech company, but he is really a secret agent. He's pretty good at what he does, but he needs a vacation. His dream vacation is to go to Graceland, but traveling to America produces challenges for a [...]
I give this book 3/5 stars.When I saw the cover and the title of this comic, I knew I had to read it. It was not something I had seen before.It was a really interesting comic. It is about Deep Singh, he is a secret agent and apparently, all Sikhs has superpowers. It is definitely something you haven't seen before. I really liked that idea. I also liked how they talked about and showed how other people treat Sikhs when they see them. The artwork in this comic is so beautiful and well made. I love [...]
Requested this soon as I saw it on NetGalley, stoked about the idea - especially in the climate of intolerance festering in the U.S. today - of a Sikh secret agent. Upon starting the short (26 pages) first issue of the very well-made comic (Amit Tayal's artwork is crisp and sleek; it's a beautiful book), it was easy to immediately like Deep Singh; he busts his butt fighting for the little guy, is obsessed with Elvis, has made enemies in the Taliban, and still has a mom and dad who take care of/d [...]
This almost feels like satire it's so goofy. I have a feeling something might have been lost in translation. A little hard to take seriously with today's modern comics. The dialogue was so stilted. The art and coloring was quite good though.Received an advance copy from Rosarium and NetGalley in exhange for an honest review.
The hero America would be lucky enough to have if we weren't so awful to people who wear turbans. A pure hearted agent with an obsession for Elvis goes to America and is treated, well, not great. Can't wait to read more.
This is wonderful.
Fun to have a superhero from a different tradition than Euro-Christian, nice way of introducing some Sikh religious concepts, and the last page is great satire of the current US situation
Only downside is that it's over too soon. Fun, great nerd references, references to current events/racism.Gotta read the next one.
Not my typical read but I could not resist the title or cover! And glad I delved into this interesting superhero! Hopefully Issue 2 grows in its consciousness of decolonization.
I got a copy from NetGalley in return for this review!Dash of Multiculturalism in Crazy Times!Super Sikh #1 is a about Agent Deep Singh who loves Elvis, hates the Taliban, and is trying to make the world a better place. Until things go down for him!Super Sikh #1 is a powerful graphic novel primarily for the reason that the protagonist is a Sikh man, who is fighting evil, but ends up being defined by what people expect him to be. It is nice to see an Indian ‘lead’ in a graphic novel/comic, ho [...]
I received a copy of this title from the publisher via Netgalley.**Review of Volume #1 sample only**Ten Second Synopsis:Deep Singh is the James Bond of the Punjab, and finding it hard to juggle being a legend with finding time to relax. On taking a holiday to Graceland, his plane is unexpectedly hijacked by Mexican terrorists and Deep becomes sucked in to the nightmare of US customs and immigration control.It took me a page or two to figure out what the go was with this story, but I'm happy to r [...]
I received a free ARC copy of this issue from NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewThis was really great, I'm not sure I've ever seen a Sikh superhero before [outside of cosplay]. Although this issue was mostly just introduction and setting the scene it was still very enjoyable. It managed to keep a fun mood throughout the issue while also beginning to delve into issues of racism in America. This is definitely a series to keep an eye on and something we really need right now. [Also the art [...]
Deep Singh is a U.N. Special Agent, but all the work is tiring him out, so he tries to take a holiday.The first issue is an introduction to the character and central plot, where Deep goes on holiday to the USA and it doesn't entirely work out. I saw this discussed as a superhero title, but it has more of an action spy vibe. Deep doesn't have superhuman abilities and I didn't get a feel that anyone else did either. He does have exceptional combat skills and some of the gadgets are more speculativ [...]
Super Sikh #1 by Alden/Manchanda/Tayal, et. al. is a free NetGalley e-comicbook that I read in early April.Looooove him - not just his appearance, motivations, and Elvis-loving personality, but his lore, his IIIT building hideout, and Q-like cousin that create defense and Sikh devotion-enhancing technology. I only wish that the comicbook issue was longer (must be getting used to those volume compilations), that there's an action figure in the works, and for me to be able to find future paper com [...]
