THE SNAKE AND THE LOTUS: A HALAHALA ADVENTURE (Westland, Rs 799) by Appupen takes the reader on yet another trip into the mythical universe of Halahala. Filled with suspense, as life in this world is nearing an end, it is a treat for science fiction enthusiasts. The artwork, steeped in black and white, is darker than the earlier works in this series in order to complement the story. The book plays on the old theme of humans versus machines, and the quest of the chosen one to save humanity. It marks a departure from the usually silent works of Appupen, as a narrator guides the reader through the plot. This book holds the promise of a new beginning, especially in the genre of graphic novels in India.
