Aghori is Holy Cow Entertainment’s 1st flagship character and the first story arc is composed of 8 issues.Holy Cow Entertainment is compiling 2 issues in one book to make a complete graphic novel with the first half of Aghori compiled into 4 books.
Speaking to Animationxpress.comabout the making of Aghori, Vivek Goel, Founder of Holy Cow Entertainment, says, “Aghori, according to me, is an unexplored territory and this book is composed with informative content rather than being a comic book and the book will open your eyes towards the hurdles and living of an Aghori.
To get a deep insight of the life of Aghori’s, the writer of this book, Ram V personally met Aghori’s on the Banks of the River Ganges and had long conversations with them, which has helped him to deliver the story for the book and the entire book has been given a hot and cool colour treatment.
Commenting more on Aghori, Vivek, highlights, “If I ask you about an Aghori, there are two prime things, which would click in your mind with the first being a man who has no connection with personal hygiene whereas the second would be flesh eating man, but trust me, its not even one percent of this. It’s very important to understand that there are around 12 processes, which one needs to pass to convert into a aghori and it’s only after these stages that a person is bestowed with the Tantrik powers.
One more thing which I would like to convey through this book is that, powers are not good or bad, it’s the person, who uses it in a right or wrong way.”
Till date, Holy Cow Entertainment has been on its toes by releasing 8 comic books and they started working on Aghori in April this year. At present, Aghori is available in all major book stores, on Kindle and as an IPad App. The company is all gearing up to make its mark in the upcoming Mumbai Film and Comic Convention in Mumbai, where they will be launching their 2nd issue in the Aghori series.
When asked about the experience at First Ever Comic Con Bengaluru, Vivek, shares, “I loved Comic Con Bengaluru!! The most interesting aspect was to meet artist one on one and exchange thoughts with them”
