'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 man in a turban and beard.
It starts out like a James Bond film, then feels like a satire towards the end of the issue. I wanted it to be one or the other, but that might be my cultural expectations playing a part. There isn't a whole lot about the character at this point, but I'd be interested in reading more issues.
I received a review copy of this issue from Rosarium Publishing and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this issue.
