I was just wondering if anyone here has read any of the Virgin Comics titles, and if you have what are your favorites.

These are stories based around Indian history and legends. I'm not sure if you have them in the states. Here's a link to them http://www.virgincomics.com/

Personally I think the idea is wonderful, a little put off because of how short lived DC did Milestone. Hope this lasts longer

We've sent them a few e-mails trying to get their material on the 'Vine for previews but they don't want our help in promoting them. Too bad.

Some of it's good, not all of it is great (to me). They do their best to showcase Indian talent. Their art seems very paint-oriented.

I read Ramayan 3392 AD for the first few issues, just b/c Deepak Chopra wrote it. Quite picking it up though.

I will tell you that the "Director's Cut" concept is AWESOME though. BOTH of those titles are great. They get a film director to come up w/ a concept, and then have a comic writer & artist do the comics.

"Seven Brothers" (TPB just came out) is a GREAT series - John Woo concept, Garth Ennis writing (!), and some Indian guy on art.

"Gamekeeper" is also GREAT - Guy Ritchie (Snatch, LS&TSB, etc.) concept - not sure who does the writing/art, but it is a really good series.

I get the feeling that most of the people on this board just read DC & Marvel? Not that it's a bad thing, but I read a LOT more Vertigo & Wildstorm stuff than DC or Marvel anymore.

Until now I just readed India Authentic and Ramayan 3392 AD(not the Reloaded trought but I will read it soon),but they're both very good.I liked ked very much of using Hinduism as a theme in comics,I'm fascinated by this religion.India Authentic prefer to explain each figure in a Issue and Ramayan 3392 AD tells the epic it's based on a futuristic take without losing the supernatural part.I hope Liquid Comics continue their titles.
