Indian epic Ramayana as comic

Avi Solomon says, "Ramayana, the classic indian epic is online in 'graphic novel' form! (Link). This is part of the 'Amar Chitra Katha' series concieved by Anant Pai who was the pioneer in using comics to reintroduce India's mythological and historical treasures to it's alienated youth. More on Anant Pai (Link), and 'Amar Chitra Katha' website (Link)

BoingBoing reader Suresh Venkat says, "Many Indians of a certain age (myself included) grew up devouring Amar Chitra Katha (I had huge piles of them in my house, and in all probability still do at my parent's place in India). I didn't realize that they count as "graphic novels." I guess I was on the cutting edge even then. :) "
