An introduction to the Narasimha comic found in Virgin Comics

“Wherever there is a decay in morality and those that walk the straight and narrow path are tormented, I shall manifest myself as a champion of Dharma” – That is the promise of Vishnu, The Preserver of the Holy Trinity.

In an ancient age, a vicious demon overlord rises supreme in the ranks of Gods and Demons alike. Empowered by a boon of near immortality, he can be slayed by neither mortal, nor God, nor beast. As he arrogantly embarks on a bloody campaign to persecute the people of Earth, the tormented masses led by his own son, pray to the Gods for deliverance. Vishnu manifests Himself in the chimeral avatar of Narasimha, half-man, half-beast, to make good on his eternal promise.

The 32-page comic book will be on sale from October 24, 2007 and is priced at $2.99. The book is written by Saurav Mohapatra and the Cover is by Satish Tayade.
