Abstract
The volume seeks to examine Amar Chitra Katha's re-writing of the nineteenth century nationalist orientalist historiography within the context of the culture industry in a post colonial scenario. It attempts to read closely the different strategies through which the various myths, legends and historical episodes are narrativised into a comic book format.
Based on a reading of visual practices and the complicated art history informing the comics, the book delves into core issues of communalism, history writing and the ways in which middle-class India negotiates the consumption of products of popular culture to suit its ideological moorings.
