    Alex Ross Painting Covers for Virgin Comics

    A LEGEND FROM INDIA – NOW WITH COVER ART BY AN AMERICAN LEGEND

    New York, NY, MAY 30 – Alex Ross, the acclaimed comic book illustrator is painting covers for Virgin Comics, it was announced today by Virgin Comics CEO, Sharad Devarajan. His first work for Virgin is the cover of Ramayan Reborn #1 (in stores September 6). Ramayan Reborn is loosely based on India’s greatest legend, Ramayana originally written in Sanskrit more than two thousand years ago.

    “I have always respected and enjoyed the magic of Alex’s art,” said Devarajan. “His knowledge of classic characters and mythic elements provides unique perspective for Ramayan Reborn.”

    Ramayan Reborn from Virgin Comics is a graphic, post-apocalyptical reinvention of Indian mythology told by India’s two greatest creators, bestselling author Deepak Chopra (Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, Peace Is The Way) and acclaimed filmmaker Shekhar Kapur (Elizabeth, Bandit Queen).

    “I am thrilled to be contributing to the Virgin Comics library of titles,” said Deepak Chopra. “There are very few Western allegories with mythic storytelling, intrepid heroes and interwoven dimensions on this level. Homer’s Odyssey and Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings come to mind.”
