Item description for Devi Volume 3 (Shekhar Kapur's Devi) by Saurav Mohapatra...
Tara Mehta felt trapped in her aimless life, always suspecting she was destined for greater things. But being the avatar of the celestial warrior Devi, an entire pantheon's champion destined to fight the renegade god Bala, was a bit out of her league. Nevertheless, the Goddess and the Human in her joined forces and prevailed over Bala. Now Tara's mind must maintain its sanity as the divine and the human coexist. Will she be able to live up to her promise of being not just a champion for the gods, but also the harbinger of hope for the entirety mankind? Ancient and primal apocalyptic forces awaken from their eon-old slumber and head straight for the city of Sitapur, with only Devi standing in their way. Writer Saurav Mohapatra (India Authentic) and artist Saumin Patel join forces for Devi's deadliest test, "Karmageddon."

Quick Read Jun 1, 2008
It was a quick and fun read. The artwork was amazing. It was better than the 2nd in my opinion and leaves off a great ending for the next issue- which I can't wait for.
Great!!! May 5, 2008
This comic books is amazing. The drawing is neat and perfect, and it works very well at telling the story it's telling, as happened in the previous two comics. The story itself is so strong that it draws you on, and in my case, you love it. I loved the "struggle" between Tara and the Devi, the goddess and the humanity, and that they both can reach a truce and see the better way to work around their differences, and to learn from each other.
The characters are amazing, each of them unique and with a strong personality, making you want to know more of each one.
The story told is also a very good one, and the only cliché found in its pages is the story of the woman who suddenly gets this powers that she hasn't asked for. It reminds a little of Sara Pezzini and the Witchblade in that sense.
All in all this one is a recommended lecture. I have the fourth one pre ordered and I'm really hooked onto the story!!!
The Same Problems Keep Coming Back... Mar 15, 2008
I was very enthusiastic about the Devi series when I first learned about it, and have continued to read it despite the past two volumes, which have been fairly disappointing. This third volume is OK, but not great. It opens with a series of one-shot stories on Devi, Kratha, and Rahul Singh and gives us background into their pasts which lends some additional insight into who they are. It then launches into a story in which we find that the new Devi is struggling between dual identities: her goddess self, and a burgeoning dark side, a demon self, while the maniacal assassin Kratha is hot on her trail.
The problem with this comic is that it started strong, but has allowed its quality to slip. The dialogue and writing used to sparkle, but are now staid and fairly dull - I felt no emotional interest in this story at all. Additionally, this title insists on a style of artwork that would be more appropriate in a Saturday morning cartoon than in a serious comic book, making it very difficult to take it seriously. I know that volume 4 is coming out soon, and hopefully it will pick up my spirits and renew my faith in this series.
