Review of this volume at Experiments in Reading and Ana's review of the first two volumes and Chris's review of the first two volumes
And rather than divide the world up into good and bad, right and wrong, Sita's vision encompasses all those who suffer, endure and ultimately bear the consequences of what kings and wars do--and this includes not only women, children and ordinary people, but also animals and birds.
The art in this graphic novel is bold and vivid and powerful. And in another short, very interesting afterward, I learned a little bit about how this book came to be. Patua as an art form goes back centuries in the Bengal region of India. It combines oral storytelling and performance with painted scrolls. The talented artist of Sita's Ramayana, Moyna Chitrakar, comes from the Patua art tradition. It seems both an adventurous and logical leap to transfer her talents to graphic novel form. And she does it beautifully.
Review at Buried in Print and well, that's all I could find.
