Regarding Indian Comics (Open Letter 2.0)

First of all, I want to give a HUGE thanks to everyone out there.

All around him, his battallion of crack troops ran riot through the humble mountain village.

A few villagers tried to run but realising only too late that the Sultans men had doused the villages perimited fencing with oils that were now ablaze – the wooden fencing built to keep wild animals out of the village was now in a twisted turn, penning in the very people who had built it for their safety.
