The current comicscape does not offer any Indian superheroes and I am not talking about Krissh or Hanuman who seem to me to come second hand from the West. And now comes the news that Shekhar Kapur and has created new superheroes for today’s generation: Devi and Sadhu. Gautam Chopra (THE Deepak Chopra’s son) has penned another comic called Snake Woman. Samit Basu – author of the The Simoqin Prophecies and its sequels – is writing one (or more?) of the episodes of Devi. It seems like everyone wants to exploit India’s mythology for the commercial market. On the other hand, we might get our own superhero. I don’t want to be the skeptic. Let’s wait and watch.
