The Plot:

The journey of a wrist watch, through time. From being assembled, to  changing multiple hands, and owners, to a whole new twist in the end. This wordless journey is depicted through illustrations / images.

My Thoughts:

When I was asked if I would review a Comic Book, I was a bit taken back. I tried to think back to the last time I had read one, and only Archie’s comics came to mind.

My curiosity about the comic book led me to accepting the review offer. As soon as the slim, black and white illustrated copy of Tick Tock by Rahul P Bhandare was in my hands, I read it in one go.

I must confess I have read it many times over ever since, and each time I read it, I interpret it differently. With no words being used to tell the story, your imagination is free to take flight, as it follows the simple illustrations.


I found the idea of a wordless story very intriguing, and each time I read it, I interpreted it according to the mood I was in. If I was low, I found a philosophical story. A happy mood brought about a cheerful outcome.

A refreshing concept and a simple story make Tick Tock by Rahul P Bhandare a must read.
