Was an absolute delight to read and it keeps one enthralled. Comic writing specially on religious stories is challenging and difficult as one has to think visually. The intermediary used is excellent and is easily interpreted by the reader.
Great job done by the script writer and illustrator as words and pictures used go excellently well together.
It is a great medium, to capture imagination and teach today's generation about their guru and his teachings.
