India Authentic #11 – Hanuman has gone to press and I’m mighty pleased with the visuals. The cover is by Dean R Hyrapiet (Voodoo Child, Virulents) and the art is by Swapnil. Here is a preview from the comic which hits the stands on 26th March 2008 as per solicits. These are three splashes from the beginning, middle and end of the book.

Here is the solicit text for the book

Created by: Deepak Chopra,
Written by: Saurav Mohapatra,
Art and Cover by: Virgin Studios

A mere mention of his name is said to put fear in the hearts of the mightiest demons. It is said that the chant of his name protects one from the vilest of evil spirits. He is a god unlike any other. Born with the body of an ape, but a heart as large as a hundred suns, blessed with the strength to move mountains, leap across oceans and fly faster than the swiftest of birds. From the pages of the great Indian epic, Ramayana, Virgin Comics and Deepak Chopra as part of the path-breaking India Authentic series, bring to you the tale of a god who is both scholar and warrior; one whose name is synonymous with devotion and humility.

This is the legend of mighty Hanuman, son of the wind, slayer of demons and devoted ally of Rama, the warrior prince!

India Authentic vol II TPB collecting issues 6-10 has also gone to print and i think it is either already available or will be soon available for purchase at your neighbourhood comic book store.
