CHENNAI: Graphic India, ISM Komix and Cornerstone Sport, announced today that Rohit Sharma will be launching a new environmental superhero team called Hyper Tygers. The digital comic will be free to read on all devices from February 1 through Sharma’s Facebook page and the Graphic POP! Mobile applocation. “I’ve been a big fan of the work Graphic India has been doing in the country. The idea to collaborate with them to launch India’s first cricket-based superhero comic made sense,” said Rohit Sharma. “Hyper Tygers is an action-packed adventure around a futuristic game of cricket. The story also serves as a larger allegory to protect our planet and its endangered wildlife.” 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. We follow the Hyper Tygers journey to become the best Hyper Cricket team. It’s a rags to riches story, addressing many environmental and social pains that India and the world are undergoing as rural meets mega city, tradition clashes with future technology, class lines blur and corporations put profit over people.
