I really liked the first half of the book as it was mostly concentrating on how Dashaana was taking his journey of becoming Raavan but after that it just became a fast forward book Ramayana.
I wish we have seen more of Ravana and Seeta how he felt about her.
Still after all my gripes I feel we should appreciate more and more artists to keep bringing these graphic novels in existence as to create a great comic environment in India.
Even though I like the way in which the story goes but it leaves much to be desired in terms of character development. The story starts slow and steady building on Ravan but then it rushed right through till the end.
I would have liked the author to add a perspective from the character's POV since he used first person narration.
Amazon deserves mention for blazing fast delivery!!
P.S. I love it mainly because everything about it is from MY country. And because its so good.
Artwork is quite apt, depicting our mythological figures in the grandiose ways to which we are accustomed.
I enjoyed the quick pace, even though there are some deeply philosophical ramifications of ravana’s actions that a thoughtful reader can ponder. I’ll definitely re-read my favourite parts (Hanuman especially) occasionally.
Dislikes: Paper quality and book binding is poor. There may be a few factual inaccuracies too.
Verdict: it’s worth buying just for the graphics and Ravan’s characterisation.

I was not familiar with this Indian mythology tale (Ravana: Roar of the Demon King by Abhimanyu Singh Sisodia and art by Sachin Nagar) and just finished reading this 104 page graphic novel. I found the story interesting and the art work was superb. I did not realize that Ravana was “the most reviled villain in all Hindu mythology.”
This is a story about a mortal who was made a God but his vile and quick temper made him make irrational decisions and he failed to learn from them until the very end of the story. He was powerful and strong, thinking he could easily beat all of his enemies and in the beginning he seemed to be invincible. However, his ego and refusal to learn from past mistakes guaranteed his downfall.
If you are into mythological tales of India, you should check out this interesting graphic novel.
Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: The Samurai Soul: An old warrior’s poetic tribute).
