Marz, who has teamed up with Indian comic writers for a new series 'Aveon 9' published by Rovolt, said that a good story always clicks no matter what its influences are.
"The talent in India is vast, and there's no reason Indian comics can't stand shoulder to shoulder with comics from the US or Europe or Japan. Indian comics should embrace that epic heritage and culture, just as they should engage in the fantastic creations of science fiction and fantasy. A good story is a good story, no matter where it comes from," said Marz.
'Aveon 9', set in a mystical planet thousands of years in the future, is the story of a pair of star-crossed lovers and a native as they fight against evil forces.
The series, inspired from Indian classics and western sci-fi, has a team of Indians and Americans working on it.
"Working on literally opposite sides of the world, the team has put together what I think is a seamless creation," said Marz, who brought back popularity to 'Green Lantern' and has written for the 'Star Wars' series. Being an editor on 'Aveon 9', Marz said it was a different experience exploring new grounds, than working on superheroes like Green Lantern or Batman, who came with a history.
