Swipe File : The Indian edition

24 Dec

In the tradition of bleeding cool please welcome our new semi-regular feature – SWIPE FILE.

From Bleedingcool :
In Swipe File we present two or more images that resemble each other to some degree. They may be homages, parodies, ironic appropriations, coincidences or works of the lightbox. We trust you, the reader, to make that judgment yourself.  If you are unable to do so, please return your eyes to their maker before any further damage is done. The Swipe File doesn’t judge, it’s interested more in the process of creation, how work influences other work, how new work comes from old, and sometimes how the same ideas emerge simultaneously, as if their time has just come. The Swipe File was named after the advertising industry habit where writers and artist collect images and lines they admire to inspire them in their work. It was swiped from the Comic Journal who originally ran this column, as well as the now defunct Swipe Of The Week website.

We start off with the Character – Indra of erstwhile Manoj comics.

Now please have a look below. Do they feel familiar?

Robotman (DC Comics)
Mekanek (He-Man and Masters of Universe)

Rhino (Marvel comics)

Klingon Race (Star Trek)

    i agree…except for the star trek character…the dude on the cover looks more like the late Amrish Puri pulling off brad pitt's look in troy!!! Maybe the custom designers for troy read Manoj Comics!
