Team StoryWeavers|September 25, 2018|

Summer vacations, train rides, evenings after school, what is the one thing common among these? Comic Books!

Whether it is the hours spent bartering with friends, or grabbing our favourite copies at bookstores and finishing them in a single read, comic books define childhood! 

This World Comic Book Day, we celebrate Indian comic books we grew up with


Stories of morals, friendship and learning from our mistakes, Panchatantra shares some of the oldest tales from Indian history. Beautifully illustrated, with some lovable characters it is for many children one of their first learning journeys.


Sharing stories from everyday live, Champak packs an entertainment kit along with puzzles, quizzes etc. for children of all ages. The perfect way to spend summer and winter vacations.


A comic famous for its beautiful illustrations, Chandamama is a favourite among children and adults due to its unique storytelling style and stories on mythology.

Tenali Raman

Tenali Raman comics tell stories of wisdom and wit of a brahmin with a sense of humour. His tactics and witty remarks often leave readers in splits, and have inspired several TV shows and cartoons for children.

Amar Chitra Katha

Rewritten in about 20 languages, Amar Chitra Katha is a favourite across India. With the aim of saving our cultural heritage, the comic series contains tales from mythology and Indian history, giving children a chance to relive the glory of ancient India.
