Gotham Entertainment Group to launch Virgin Comics in India

Gotham Entertainment Group, one of the leading publishers of international comic magazines for India, will launch the acclaimed Virgin Comics magazines in India starting this month. GEG Co-founders, Sharad Devarajan and Suresh Seetharaman made an announcement to this effect on April 9.

The Virgin Comics ‘Shakti’ line of titles have gained international attention around the world, and feature Indian stories and characters created by Indian artists and writers in Bangalore. Originally published in the US and currently being translated into numerous languages around the world, GEG has now made these comics available to audiences in India.

“Under the Gotham Comics brand, GEG has introduced comic book titles featuring global characters such as Batman, Superman, Spider-Man, X Men, Hulk and many others for the Indian audience, over the last decade. In keeping with our commitment of bringing the best youth content from across the world to India, we believe the groundbreaking artwork and stories produced by Virgin’s creators will resonate profoundly with today’s Indian youth market,” said Seetharaman.

Shekhar Kapur, acclaimed filmmaker and Virgin Comics Co-founder, said, “I am extremely excited with the international success of Virgin Comics and all of that success is owed to the latent creative talent here in India. Therefore, I am extremely impatient for the Indian youth to also experience these comics and I promise them that it will be a very mythic experience. I am happy we have been able to tie up with Gotham Comics, India’s leading comic publisher. Through their distribution, we stand on the same platform as worldwide brands such as Marvel and DC Comics.”

Samarjit Choudhry, Senior VP-Marketing, Gotham Comics, said, “The Virgin Comics ‘Shakti’ line is inspired by India, and we expect these comics to resonate well with the contemporary Indian youth. We believe that the Virgin Comics range added to our existing portfolio of comics, and we will see a huge revival in the comic reading habit in India.”

Gotham Comics has recently launched the first three Virgin Comic titles in India, including the critically acclaimed, ‘Devi’ and ‘Snake Woman’ titles, which were both created by Shekhar Kapur. In addition, they have launched ‘The Sadhu’. In the upcoming months, Gotham Comics will also launch Virgin’s ‘Ramayan 3392 AD’, a futuristic sci-fi story inspired by the original Ramayana mythology.
