The Karna story in the Mahabharata has always fascinated people.
Amitabh Bachchan's angry young man persona in the Seventies is an avatar of Karna — he is a victim of society, a skilled, resourceful warrior and generous to a fault. Karna is the archetypal anti-hero. So, it came as no surprise that Vimanika Comics chose this tragic character as the protagonist for its graphic novel series, The Sixth: The Legend of Karna. The slim, colourful book with its spirited illustrations was recently launched.
