Virgin meets Vampires

<  Virgin meets Vampires

in a “Spiritual” Bollywood….What a combo.

Throw Indian and American soldiers into a barren Afghanistan desert, toss a nuclear warhead into the hands of terrorists and you have an action-packed plot in the latest graphic novel to be released by Virgin Comics.

Created by graphic artists in the southern Indian city of Bangalore, the dark tale titled “Virulents” is the latest in a series of comic books produced in a year-old partnership between British billionaire Richard Branson, spiritual guru Deepak Chopra and Indian filmmaker Shekhar Kapur.

…Unlike last year’s serialized Virgin comics such as “The Sadhu,” “Devi” and “Snakewoman,” which are science fiction takeoffs on epic Indian good-versus-evil tales, the new release tells the whole story in one book and at first glance appears rooted in the present.The troops liberally swear in English and Hindi, and there are references to the war on terror, President Bush and even Bollywood beauty Aishwarya Rai.

Then comes the twist — the terrorists turn into demonic vampires. The new novel draws inspiration from an ancient Indian legend of a blood demon who produces clones every time a warrior slashes and spills his blood. – AP via PE.com
