Description

Krishna: Defender of Dharma, published by Campfire, is an enchanting graphic novel. Krishna, the eighth avatar of Lord Vishnu, fights Kansa, the tyrant emperor of Mathura.

Summary of the Book

Krishna had to fight evil from the time of his birth. All his life, he not only had to fight demons, ogres, and monsters, but also kings, princes and soldiers. This time, Krishna has to fight evil which has disguised itself as Kansa. This tale of valour, and the victory of the good over the evil, is brilliantly captured in the graphic novel, Krishna: Defender of Dharma.

Brilliant

I just don't have enough words to praise the shape this book has taken. Knowing Shweta is a honor! :-). She has just virtually produced the actions in a simple, short and crisp manner. Penning down different episodes of the life of Krishna is no easy task. It needs immense work, research and the knowledge to portray the actual meaning of what the character conveys. I've always admired Krishna and his romance with Radha. I only wish there were more episode of Radha in the book! :-)
I must also...

Brilliant Art Work...

Its also written, from the Perspective of Sri Krishna, which makes it even more better to read, just as with the comic: Ravana - Roar of the Demon King...

And the colours are so bright and the art work is so captivating, its simply a wonder to behold...

Also, during Jarasandha's episode, there's a Map of India during the Dwaparayuga displayed!! :D That was another wonder to watch :) :) :)

All in all, a real treat for any age group, A Real piece of work, all right!!

The best graphic novel of Lord Krishna ever!

Mesmerizing arts with unique beauty, this novel gives classic style of composed narration of the stories of Lord himself.From mischievous days of gokul to romantic pastimes in Vrindavan, you will feel their vividness right before your eyes. Kamsa's defeat in Mathura followed by the battlefield of Kurukshetra when the Gita-" the Song Celestial " was woven and last days in Dwarka, everything seems to have harmonious blend of colors and joy of wonderful writing.

Wish Campfire the best, and hope they release a lot more novels based on Indian characters. If anything, I just had a minor complaint. i had ordered 1 graphic novel earlier for my nephew. But I liked it so much, I went ahead and ordered a...

The illustrations are excellent. The artist has given a fresh touch to the depictions of a lot of characters. It's a very good job considering that the whole of the Mahabharatha dealing with Krishna has been so concisely reproduced in such refreshing style.
