Yes. English comics. I cannot read Hindi - (extremely basic reading level).
 
Basically if I know at the back of my head that I can get back a good chunk of my investment in the expensive versions of the books, it will be easier to pony up money for them. Second, I also find that hardcover editions of books go out of print much faster and sometimes it is harder to find them. The only reason for me to get rid of the books is because I want to downsize the collection.

Hey. Any comics or artworks you guys are aware of that show vehicles: bikes, cars, bicycles, etc in a new light? It can be anything like futuristic, punk, dystopian, funky etc. 
Looking for a project so any pointers will be helpful. Thanks!

You probably already know this but you can check out Kaneda's bike from the Akira manga/anime.

Also, the Batman comics/fanart should have plenty of interesting vehicle designs. 

Here's a piece of concept art for the Batpod that recently popped up in my feed:

And done with it. A couple of the panels in there were pretty heart-wrenching. Good issue overall with some awesome artwork.

Not really a fan of waiting 30 f**king days for each issue though :rant:

Akira is probably the most famous comic book bike there is. Any search online about this mentions it :lol:

 

Where can I find more of these concepts/fanarts?

You can check Shaolin Cowboy, East Of West , Black Science though not all would have vehicles only but would give you a overview of different designs

Yeah, it's pretty iconic. Just look at the number of times the bike-slide shot from the movie was recreated.

Quote

A golf course in LA, in the early hours of the morning. Two TV celebrities, the American Chuck Atkins and the British Simon Kennedy, meet up for a “friendly” round on the links. But as they make their way through 18 holes, things quickly unravel, leaving chaos in their wake… Because those overgroomed, perfect exteriors hide a lot of blemishes. This boisterous graphic novel written by American author Micah Stahl and illustrated by Belgian artist Bram Algoed takes up many central issues in today’s culture, from fame and narcissism to loneliness and accountability. At times tragic, often rowdy, and always funny, this is the perfect book for readers who love a wayward story drawn in an original style.


Funny as f**k.
