Lord Shiva is the third deity in the Hindu trinity. He is often regarded as the most fearful since he presides over destruction! Even though the remainder of the trinity, Brahma and Vishnu, are associated with creation and preservation respectively, Shiva is equally loved by us mortals for he instills fear in the hearts of the wicked and love and affection in the hearts of the good.
There are three lovely tales included in this comic:
The confrontation between Arjuna and Shiva
Shiva the Fisherman
Shiva and Markandeya
These comics are endearing to the young and old. Reading them is an inspiring and fun way to learn about India's saints and sages - and it's a lot easier than studying the Vedas! Comics are also a great way for children to learn, which is why they are an integral part of most Indian households. These incredible tales from the scriptures make Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne seem tame! These are the DC Comics for the ages.
We carry Amar Chitra Katha comics as they have the most consistent quality. We import all of our comics direct from India. The quality is generally good, but please make allowance for the fact that they are printed economically in India. Occasionally the cover art is slightly different from show.
