Voice of America has an article up on the Indian invasion:
British-based company Virgin wants to introduce comic readers to Snake Woman, the heroine of one of its new comic books, inspired by Indian mythology. The books went on sale a few weeks ago in the United States, and have made a big impression already.
Reader Geremy Hartwik says the comics combine good writing and fresh ideas. “I can see the Indian elements especially in the character names and everything,” he says. “But I didn’t think they seemed only accessible, if you know anything about Indian culture. I think they seemed very accessible because the story is very well written.”
The article quotes sales figures, saying, “Virgin has sold 20,000 copies of its new comics in the first edition alone.” For more detailed, title-by-title sales numbers, check out Marc-Oliver Frisch’s sales analysis over at The Beat.
