Prophet Muhammad Illustrated - Home Amar Chitra Katha: India’s Immortal Comics « books NOT borders July 24, 2009 by aedwright In North America, there is Marvel and DC Comics, but in India there is Amar Chitra Katha (ACK). These comics, dating back to the late 1960s, have over 400 volumes with stories ranging from the traditional, like Ramayana, to the biographical, with stories about Shah Jahan (builder of the Taj Mahal and one of the great Muslim kings of India) and Gandhi – and sell over 1.5 million copies yearly, making it one of (if not the) most popular children’s series in India (ACK Media, 2009). A North American religious studies professor, Karline McLain, has recently released a book all about these comics called, India’s Immortal Comic Books — a title that was just profiled in an article, ‘The Legacy of Amar Chitra Katha‘, from Business World (one of India’s most popular business magazines). As a source of international YA, ACK is excellent for its popular format (comics), its enduring history and appeal – and its accessibility. References: ACK Media. (2009). Like this:
