Comic Books

Advertisement: Rostam Comic Book

Category: Comics

I have a thing for comics. Any kind of comics. It is where I learned how to love reading. From comics, I scoured for books and more books. It shaped me to read more be it books or comics, in the beginning when I was very young.

I also have a thing for kings and royalties. Of tales and fantasies....

How much more if it is rolled into one?

Rostam Comic Book offers you the Tales from the Shahnameh.

This comic book is an adaption of the Shahnameh or what they call The Epic of the Kings which is one of the definite classics of the world done by the famous Persian poet Ferdowsi. The Shahnameh is considered to be the Persians National epic.

The first series of their book features Rostam, a giant man and a very powerful fighter in his many fantastic adventures. Here, Rostam shows his being powerful and strength and his skill as a warrior but of course with it comes his integrity and loyalty to Iran which he protects and defents from different betrayals of characters.

The first in a trilogy of stories is Rostam: Tales of the Shahnameh would introduce us to the main characters of the story.

Their comic book is a standard American Comic book bearing 32 pages printed in high-quality, semi-glossy paper with a slightly thicker cover for protection and durability. It is also hand-drawn and was scanned and colored in the computer in high detail.

For people who knew the tales from Ferdowsi would love this comic and also even for people who just learned about it would be enticed like moi. It's a great comic book!

Thanks for the tip, the site you linked to is kinda kool!

I found that you can preview the entire comic book from the links on the page "characters" where all you have to click on is book1 or book2 (in order to see the whole comic book). The illustrations are the bomb and I especially love the battle scenes.

Thanks again!
