Nagraj is a ridiculous book superhero appearing in Indian ridiculous books published by Raj Comics created in the late 1980s by Rajkumar Gupta and his sons Manoj Gupta and Sanjay Gupta. Nagraj first appeared in the comics Nagraj GENL# 14 which was written by Parshuram Sharma and illustrated by Pratap Mullick.
After that Sanjay Ashtpure, Pratap Mullick, Chandu, Milind Misal, and Vitthal Kamble alternatively illustrated the character for 44 issues, ending in 1995 with Visarpi Ki Shadi.
Nagraj is believed to have been inspired by the mythological Ichchhadhari Nag (shapeshifting snakes) and literal Vishmanushya ( poisonous human). His stories produce a rich mix of tradition, fantasy, magic, and wisdom fabrication. Numerous of Nagraj’s suckers believe that, over time, Nagraj’s comics have developed a snake tradition of its own, which is unique to the popular Indian beliefs about snakes that are current among the millions.
In the middle of the nineties, Anupam Sinha (who was formerly running the mega-successful Dhruv series) took over the helms of Nagraj as well. Anupam Sinha’s extensive history couldn’t fully fit in a single comic, so he used multi-comic stories to subcaste and enrich his tales. The Khajana bow by Anupam Sinha set up the backstory beautifully and discredited Nagmani numerous times after the comics began.
He also led to increasing in the frequency of Two-in-One comics, which combined Nagraj and Dhruv and started passing formerly in a time. Nagraj has changed a lot in his 25 times in print, both in terms of aesthetics as well as powers and capacities. With time numerous new artists similar as Lalit Sharma and Hemant Kumar have done illustrations of Nagraj.
