ACK Comics: History, Mythology, Legend

The classic Amar Chitra Katha comics series is central in many Indian kids’ childhoods. It’s especially popular with children of immigrants, who use it as an entertaining teaching tool to convey cultural and mythological heritage.

The Trilogy as a whole, and KALKI in particular, embody an aesthetic of comic books and panelized story telling. Below, find a few examples of ACK comic pages taken from “The Tales of Vishnu” (and keep and eye out for Garuda!). Every ACK comic begins with a primer on the myth or history, and I’m including that here for reference. (Click to make ’em bigger.)
