Virgin Comics / INDIA AUTHENTIC

I signed up with Virgin Comics to write a 5 issue series called “INDIA AUTHENTIC” which retells/reimagines the iconic myths and legends of India for an international audience.

The series shall hit the stands sometime in June / July 2007.

I am pretty pumped up about this and have started work on the first few books in the series. Watch this space for more details. 🙂

Vault of Terror hits the stands

My piece “Dragonslayer” for “Vault of Terror” by SMASH! Comics/Open Book Press got a good review at “ComicReaders.com”. The reviewer calls it one of the “successes” of the anthology.

I did the story / letters while Kaushik Pal did the art. We had experimented with a CGI based art style which I must say added a lot to the mood / ambience of the story.

A quote from the review is given below ( You can read the full review here. )

Dragonslayer” by Saurav Mohapatra and Kaushik Pal provides a look into another damaged mind; the story of a young girl who has created in her mind a mythological villain to slay in order to escape the horrors of her own reality.

The book can be purchased via Amazon.com
