Very powerful.
Mar 25, 2015 rated it it was ok
It was an interesting telling of Ganesha's origins, but I was disappointed by the battle scenes. I understand that the way of Buddhism is peaceful, but it's a graphic novel and I expected a little more. We have a young boy defeating a centaur, an entire army of men, and challenging Shiva himself. Those could make some epic imagery, but alas each scene was but a panel. Luckily, it is free.

Beautifully done

A divine comic book indeed! The writing and illustrations are on point for what it aims to do. I look forward to reading more.

Another fine myth.

This origin story for the God Ganesh is well done. A favorite of the Hindi religion and popular with those facing life's obstacles.

Modern Depiction of Story

I like the fact that this book has modern illustrations and even dialogue. The story is told well and evokes the feelings of Ganesha, in my point of view. I also like the Introduction, explaining the qualities of Ganesha and his significance in Hinduism. Overall, this is a nice comic book. Five stars.

2.5 Tells of the creation of Ganesh by Shiva. I assume that later issues expand on the myth.

We need more of these

A beautiful story told in a delightfully rendered version. I will be sharing this with my grandchildren and hoping for more in the near future.

As someone already familiar with the story, I went through the pages without feeling impressed until the last page when it was tied together and it got me, right there. Seriously, I teared up.

A Mother's Love

A wonderful myth that bought tears to my eyes.
I recently lost my Mother and reading this was an healing experience.

Beautifully drawn. Great retelling of an important history. Easily read for a beginner, but grasping enough for a mature seeker.

Not a great presentation but a good attempt

Does not suit the readers who have little knowledge about Hinduism. Narrative could have been a better option of presentation.
