Created by acclaimed filmmaker Shekhar Kapur, (Elizabeth, Four Feathers, Golden Age, Bandit Queen)
Tara Mehta, an unsuspecting young woman in the futuristic Asian city, Sitapur is the Devi. She has no idea that she is about to become the centerpiece of a divine battle between the Gods of Light and the demon Lord Bala. Devi is a powerhouse of a story about a young woman battling for survival in a landscape of ancient legends, duty and fate. She walks the line between tradition, destiny and free will. Where will she fall? Between the Divine and the Diabolical there is Devi.
“Devi is the smartest and most imaginative comic on the subject of Goddess-hood since Alan Moore’s Promethea.” -ComicCritique.com
“It should come as no surprise to anyone who has ever read an issue of Devi or seen the work of Mukesh Singh that the pages come to life beautifully in Devi/Witchblade #2. Each frame is full of detail, and every character looks distinctive. If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s bland, generic comic book art, but thankfully that is not at all an issue here….Though this issue marks the end of the Witchblade/Devi crossover, I would definitely be interested in seeing these two ladies team up again in the future. In the meantime, though, I think it’s time I get more acquainted with the Devi series; there seem to be a lot of interesting things going on over there in India.” – The Quarter Bin
“Every panel stood out and there was indeed freshness in terms of tone and pacing carried throughout all the pages… check out Devi and marvel at the power she possesses. You won’t be disappointed.”
