India Authentic

Deepak Chopra Presents - India Authentic, will focus on retelling numerous Indian mythological stories with modern artists and writers. Each issue will be centered on the story of a different Indian god or goddess. The first issue, Ganesha, portrays the legend of India’s cherished, elephant-headed god. The series will continue with subsequent stories on Kali, Shiva, Vishnu, Brahma, Uma, Indra and others.

Commenting on the new series, Deepak Chopra stated, “The re-imagination of Indian mythologies and archetypes with a cross cultural flavor will ignite once again our collective yearning for achieving the impossible and embarking on a journey of mystery, magic, and adventure. It may well usher in an age that Homer never dreamed of.”

Each issue of the series will be introduced with a foreword by Chopra, describing the relevancy of the ancient myth in the context of today’s global world. Working with Chopra is a rotating team of India’s most talented young writers and artists including Saurav Mohapatra, Satish Tayade, Abhishek Singh and others.

Punisher by Garth Ennis

Preacher, created by writer Garth Ennis, consisted of 75 issues in total — 66 regular, monthly issues, five one-shot specials and a four-issue Saint of Killers limited series.
Preacher tells the story of Jesse Custer, a down-and-out preacher in the small Texas town of Annville. Custer was accidentally possessed by the supernatural creature named 'Genesis' in an incident which killed his entire congregation and flattened his church.

Genesis, the product of the unauthorized, unnatural coupling of an angel and a demon, is an infant with no sense of individual will. However, as it is composed of both pure goodness and pure evil, it might have enough power to rival that of God himself. In other words, Jesse Custer, bonded to Genesis, may have become the most powerful being in the universe.

Custer, driven by a strong sense of right and wrong, goes on a journey across the United States attempting to (literally) find God, who abandoned Heaven the moment Genesis was born. He also begins to discover the truth about his new powers, which allow him to command the obedience of those who hear his words. He is joined by his old girlfriend Tulip O'Hare, as well as a hard-drinking Irish vampire named Cassidy.

The Hood published in 2003 stars Parker Robbins, a lowlife thug who steals a red cloak from an alien/demon, and gains various abilities while wearing the uniform. After living a bad life, Parker reforms and decides to be a hero.

Parker Robbins is a high school dropout who became a low life thug. At a bar one night, his cousin points out a man. His cousin says that the man is Electro, a villain who most commonly battles Spider-Man. The life of a villain, with kicks like these, entices Parker. Parker eventually steals an alien's technology (or possibly a demon's magical possessions), taking its red cloak and hood and finding that they give him powers.

Parker decides to use his new abilities to become a supervillain.His first big idea as a criminal (taking the name "The Hood") is to steal diamonds that are being taken into the U.S. When the crime boss loses his diamonds, he hires villains Constrictor, Jack O'Lantern, and the Shocker (more Spider-Man foes). Hood manages to defeat the supervillains, but a police officer is murdered in the process, and he is wanted for his involvement in the killing. Parker manages to con the cops into shooting the "killer", but the officer's partner realizes that the Hood is still out there, and the alien/demon awakens at the end of the series.The Hood comes to mainstream Marvel in the series Beyond Which I will be posting soon!
