I remember reading a comic in which Dhruva was called to the future because only his intelligence could defeat a villain capable of creating Vacuum Bubbles. Police were mostly ineffective against him because once trapped inside vacuum bubble, no one could survive and the bubble couldn't be penetrated (probably because of a force field surrounding it).

Dhruva also got trapped inside the vacuum bubble upon his first encounter with the villain, but he successfully saved himself by jumping inside water of a roadside water fountain before vacuum was fully achieved.

Can you please identify this comic?

  • The vacuum bubbles remind me of the bobbles in Vernor Vinge's The Peace War, without the time-stopping effect.

  • @Joe Bubbles of this question also don't have time-stopping effects.

Yes I remember the name of the comic, it is "SPCL #485 Super Commando Dhruva". Second and the final part of "SPCL #470 Robot". Both comics were excellent.


Super Commando Dhruva (SPCL #485-H)

Here’s the villain & vacuum bomb:

Here’s how Dhruva got trapped in a vacuum bubble:

Here’s how Dhruva survived by going under water (page 15):

P.S. Actual credit for story identification goes to user Raj Comics Info. I just verified it & snapped pages from the comics (Raj Comics’ app doesn’t allow taking screenshots).

    I don’t think I need to translate what’s written in the comic strips as images are self explanatory for the context of the question. If anyone is curious & AI assisted translation isn’t working on image, I can translate.

  • Translating would make this answer more likely to be found by future querents.
