DEVI #11 and INDIA AUTHENTIC #1 Previews are out (My First Solicits)

Finally they are here :)

I am writing three titles for Virgin Comics and they hit the stands in May 2007.

First one is of course Virgin’s flagship character DEVI #11 onwards which shall be hitting the stands 23rd may 07.

The second one is called Deepak Chopra’s INDIA AUTHENTIC which is a reimagining / retelling of iconic Indian myths. Issue #1 is on GANESHA, perhaps the most recognizable of the Indian Pantheon.

I was so excited about finding my name in the Diamond Comics preview catalog and immediately bought a copy :)

The third series i am writing for Virgin is their other popular character SADHU which I shall be writing from Issue #9 onwards.

Here is wishing the market likes my work on these, ’cause I have put in a lot of sweat and blood on these :D

Indian Superman

This Version – From South india- Is VERY hard to find. Superman Looks Like ELVIS in this one! Classic NTR… check out the … err.. very very BUXOM “Lois Lane” and the “cutting edge” special effects. And catchy song too…
