Sauptik: Blood and Flowers is a revisionist retelling of some of our oldest tales which have inspired and guided generations of people. The sequel to Adi Parva, which was chosen as one of 2012’s Best Graphic Novels by comic book historian Paul Gravett, this book combines breath-taking art with classic storytelling.
Based on the Mahabharata, the Puranas and the tradition of oral storytellers, Sauptik is also very contemporary. The Kurukshetra war is long over. Ashwatthama, warrior with the unhealing wound, looks upon the worlds he once knew.
