Rohit set to launch new cricket comic series
Indian cricketer Rohit Sharma is set to launch a new environmental superhero team called, ‘HYPER TYGERS’ in collaboration with Graphic India, UK based ISM Komix and Cornerstone Sport.
The digital comic will be free to read on all devices from February 1 next year through Rohit’s Facebook page and the Graphic POP! Mobile app.
“I’ve been a big fan of the work Graphic India has been doing in the country to create new Indian superheroes. The idea to collaborate with them to launch India’s first cricket based superhero comic made perfect sense,” said Rohit.
“Hyper Tygers is an action-packed adventure around a futuristic game of cricket unlike anything we have on Thursday. The story also serves as a larger allegory to protect our planet and its endangered wildlife, which is one of the great global challenges of our time,” he added.
Hyper Tygers and the Green Tyger are looking for corporate (including CSR), commercial, digital and marketing sponsors who share their ambition of promoting environmental awareness and positive social change. Hyper Tygers is set in a futuristic India in the year 2077, charting the meteoric rise of a small Indian rural community and their cricket team, including their mysterious hero the Green Tyger.
