Editor's comments: I would love to hear some more about what these comics mean to you. Feel free to reply via a comment and I will add to the above.

For my readers who are as curious as me, I did a little bit of research to find out a bit more about Amara Chitra Katha Comics, and it was fascinating!

They were developed in India by Anant Pai, who may still be editing them today. Inspired by the popularity of American comics such as The Phantom, he wanted to develop something that was more relevant for Indian children.

These comics have huge importance for generations of Indian children and were the first comics that had a deeper meaning, rather than purely entertainment. Featuring Indian stories, mythology and figures, these comics created Indian heroes in a newly independent India.

Karline McLain has written a very interesting book on the development of Amar Chitra Katha, with lots of stories from the memories of adults who grew up with these comics.

For readers who may like to find out some more, her book, India's Immortal Comic Books: Gods, Kings, and Other Heroes (Contemporary Indian Studies) would be very interesting.

Thank you!

Click N Kids would have to be one of my subscribers most popular programs, and from what they say, it is mostly because the kids have fun while they are learning. In fact they don't even realize they are learning! Click N kids are using the Looney Tune Characters now in their phonics program, which of course kids just love.
