Oxford Bookstore Connaught Place hosted an evening with a very talented group of illustrators, animation film-makers and comic book artists. The evening curated by Yodakin began with Graphic Readings by Prayas Abhinav, Priya Kuriyan, Dyuti Mittal and Shohei Emura from their comics, followed by an interesting conversation between DOGS! co-editor, Vidyun Sabhaney and Manjula Narayan on compiling this comics anthology.

DOGS! an anthology of comics dedicated to life’s canine companions, is a self published project via authorsupfront.com. It features artists and writers from both India and the U.S. DOGS! is the second endeavour of Captain Bijli Comics, a comics publishing project based in New Delhi which
aims to promote collaboration amongst comics creators and develop new content and dialogue in comics.

Experience the life of dogs through a series of comics by some of the popular artists and writers from India and abroad. DOGS aims to highlight the life of the canine companions by the comics’ creator’s vision. Some of the contributors of this series are Aditya Dipankar, Aniruddha Sen Gupta, Cristina Mezuk, Dyuti Mittal, Jack Zaloga, Jeremy Stoll, Mindy Indy, Orijit Sen, Patrick Goussy, Prayas Abhinav, Priya Kuriyan, Pia Hazarika, Shohei Emura, Vidyun Sabhaney.

In this collection you will encounter dogs that are post-apocalyptic, self-reflective, murderous, environmentally-conscious-and much more! The collection of comics was conceived after a series of meandering conversations with artists revealed a shared admiration for dogs amongst comics-wallahs, as well as a collective desire to explore what the world would look like from the other end of a snout.  Proceeds from the sales of this comic go to Sai Ashram Animal Shelter and Red Paws Rescue based in New Delhi.
