A preview of the Comic from Virgin Comics

I was born with a fiery halo that threatened to undo the universe. Thus, Ganga the mighty mother-river bore me away far from the earth deep into the uncharted heavens. I grew to manhood in the care of the six maidens of the stars, the Kritika (Pleidas) of the night sky. Then, I returned to claim my rightful place in Svarga as heralded by an ancient prophecy. I am the slayer of demons and commander-in-chief of Heaven’s army, I am Kartikkeya, the son of Shiva.

The highlight of the India Authentic Series is its wonderful illustrations.

Interestingly, the releasing date of the comic is January 23, 2008, which is the Thai Pusam day – one of the most important festivals dedicated to Lord Muruga.
