February 12, 2017. The first seeds of BlackMaster Comics & Entertainment was sown with the sole purpose of entertaining you with the best comics in India, irrespective of who you are or where you’re from.
Created by Siddharth Datta - a dynamic artist, illustrator, animator, designer and writer - BlackMaster found its footing in science fiction. The first comic AURO: TIME IS NOT CONSTANT is about Auro, a fictitious Indian superhero (but the jury’s still out on him being ‘fictitious’, he surely seems very real to us), who’s valiant, helpful and wise. The comic deals about Auro’s journey through time and the adventures that become a part of his life.
But, why Auro? Or, why even a superhero comic for that matter? Well, let’s take you back in time, then!
Opportunity knocked Siddharth’s door in 2010, when he undertook a contract of creating a fictitious superhero character for a 2D animated film in Hollywood. While the experience was thrilling to say the least, it gave him the idea of creating his own best selling comics in India. A superhero character of his own… right here in India.
And BOOM! BlackMaster was born and so was Auro (although Auro’s parents may have a thing or two to say about it, but we’ll manage it. We’re friends).
Our purpose of creating BlackMaster was simple. We wanted people to be entertained and informed about science and its many, many fictitious cousins.
So, welcome to the world of BLACKMASTER. Delve into the goosebump-inducing moments of reading comics online. Get ready to travel back into an era of comics, where stories were still read, and not only watched in theatres.
