Ghosts of India – Horror Comics Anthology – Review and Ratings

Summary

Ghosts of India is an anthology of 5 horror stories published by comix theory. Two of these stories are in English while the rest three are in Hindi. Ghosts of India is an ambitious step by Shambhu Nath Mahto, CEO of comix theory, to promote Indian artists and their portfolio.

We appreciate the initiative, but the comic is kind of unprocessed food. There are several issues that makes us say that, whether it is writing, artwork or printing. As a reader you know from the first page that this is not what you expected by looking at the cover. Cover is great but sadly that is the only good thing about whole comic book.

As a talent seeker, this book can help you in knowing some of the young artists in the comic industry but as reader you would like to forget if you have every bought it.

Concept

The concept of the comic book is promising because each of us have heard a lot of ghost stories since our childhood. The horror stories that still make same impact on us as it made in our childhood. This could have been a success only if polished properly. For concept, out score is 9.

Pace, Grip, and Impact

Out of five stories, first 2 made a little impact but we had to push through all the stories. We do not feel good to score or comment on the team involved but all the stories are naïve. Not a single story could impress us.

Ghosts of India – Dialogues and Letters

Again naïve work!

Ghosts of India – Inside Art

Even in terms of artwork, this is the weakest comic book we have rated so far. We are giving it a 2 just because a couple of panels are good, and we are attaching on best of the artwork from the book. Moreover, there was an original artwork from Shambhu Nath Mahto himself.

Ghosts of India – Cover Art

So this is the only thing in the book that you might love. We loved it! The ghost on the cover looks scary. Cover art is designed by Mr Husain Zamin. We give it 9.
