These are the latest I could find. I enjoyed Devi #3 a lot, Samit Basu has improved it - I hope the series stays at this level.

Im finding Snake Woman kind of slow so far. Devi is so far the best and im looking forward to read Seven Brothers as im a huge Ennis fan.

Yeh, ive given up on Snakewoman until I hear good things from reviews. Seems their lineup is now:

* Devi
* The Sadhu
* Ramayan 3392 A.D.
* End of Story
* The Asura Analogues
* Snakewoman (Shekhar Kapur project)
* Seven Brothers (John Woo project)
* The Gamekeeper (Guy Ritchie project)
* Walk-In
* [Nicholas Cage's project]

The Asura Analogues seems interesting, if youve read what Gotham Chopra said in the latest Devi.

Actually I kinda like snakewoman

This is how I would rate the comics so far:

1) 7 Brothers - Ennis is an experienced storyteller. The art is good too. Based on only one issue I would still rate it highly
1) Ramayan 3392 AD - the second issue is good and hopefully more good things need will continue to appear. They could enhance the 'myth' aspect of it rather than have it be a comic about killing weird looking mosters - though it is good at that.
3) Snakewoman - The story has picked up with everything tying together in the 4th issue. The art is excellent. The story spans generations like Dracula and is pretty cool.
4) Sadhu - good story and art - though we have to wait to see where it goes.
5) Devi - this is my least favorite - though many people like it the best.

Finally got to read Ramayan and 7 Brothers yesterday. Both were very good with 7 Brothers really sparking my intrest the Pros kicking the hell out of little pimp was pure Ennis. The collective of main characters and their powers has made this book go to the top of my list. Ramayan had a very good second issuse the only problem I had was that the coloring was a little too dark. I know they were going with the rainy big battle scene ( LOTR Two Towers ) but it made some of the art a little hard to follow. That said, this was only a minor hiccup the rest of the book story wise is progressing very well:D . This weekend Devi #4 and the rest of my comic for the past two weeks:p

Devi is now my favorite, where The Sadhu once was.
