The Knight in the Panther's Skin comics to be published soon
For the first time in the history of Georgian literature a comic book version of an iconic medieval Georgian poem The Knight in the Panther's Skin will be published.

As the artist says, this will be a 134-page edited graphic novel and it will be completed by spring 2017. In addition, Kakadu says, it will serve as a good basis for creating animation cartoon of The Knight in the Panther's Skin in the future.

The comic version of immortal and epic poem will play a significant role in further promoting the book both locally and internationally. Here we present to you some of the illustrations of the book by David Machavariani.
