Review: The Sadhu

The Sadhu The Sadhu by Gotham Chopra
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Another day and another graphic novel down, I do love comics and really applaud Graphic India team to try to work on different story lines and ideas. But I guess it's about time that you stopped collaborating with Deepak Chopra. The Art work is wonderful but the spiritual mumbo-jumbo is here and there. Story is fragmented, with abrupt end like others said and more coming in next paragraph.

Once again it's a story with a White Hero, Another story where a White Man saves the day. The storyline could have been much better but alas! what's the point in crying over spilled milk. This looks like that it wasn't a single book but a volume of individual issues which most of comic publishers do and it suffers from the same issue where the next issue may not continue the story or the flow might be totally different. I have read the graphic novels which tell a single story even from the house of Graphic India and those efforts were better, still I am happy and only troubling fact is that this was released way back in 2014 with few sequels later which I would be reading next but what new content are they working on in 2019? I think I have bought all their work well most of it for sure but are they still releasing new stuff?

Well I for one surely wish that they are still active and that they keep on pushing themselves to work on new and innovative storylines which are just not another rehash of same storylines from our past or from outside India :) I liked and loved the work done by GI team but more needs to be done to ensure that we have more and varied stories to tell all the readers.

I have always loved comics, and I hope that I will always love them. Even though I grew up reading local Indian comics like Raj Comics or Diamond Comics or even Manoj Comics now's the time to catch up on the international and classic comics and Graphic novels. I am on my quest to read as many comics I can. So you also give a chance to comics and Graphic Novels and always remember to just Keep on Reading .
