Kim's Review : Way of the Warrior - The Legend of Abhimanyu
I've been enjoying Saurav Mohapatra's work from Devi to Moon Mountain and Mumbai Confidential. This time he has teamed up with Vinay Brahmania for his art work for a Graphic Novel for children on the story of Abhimanyu from the Mahabharat.
The story of Abhimanyu is one of Saurav's favourite Mythological stories and he was waiting for a chance to turn it into a Graphic novel.
While this story does play up Abhimanyu's courageous side, it also draws attention to his lack of patience and there are a few lessons that children can learn from this story.
The art work is very detailed when it comes to the characters and their expressions and loses detail when it comes to the larger picture of buildings and backgrounds (unlike Devi or snake woman)
This would make a lovely bed time read for kids.
