BODHISATTVA: One who willfully turns back from the very gates of Nirvana and returns to help all sentient beings reach enlightenment.

In San Francisco, there is a madman who sees into other dimensions, a hospital orderly whose karmic corruption makes him prey to dark powers, a middle-aged man from India unraveling under the guilt of having murdered his wife in a "cooking fire." What is it that links these men? Who is the mysterious Many-Eyed Man who appears to them to steer their lives on their appropriate karmic course?

More than three thousand years ago, in the Katmandu Valley, a group of religious mendicants is visited by the gods they worship: Brahma of the four faces; Kali, with her belt of human skulls; Hanuman, king of monkeys; and Ganesha, the elephant-headed Lord of Hosts. The young monks are taken in strange, collosal serpents of steel to the ruins of the ancient civilization of Harapa; and there they are transformed by the technology of the gods into beings more than merely human. But even the gods themselves have human liabilities, and Kali, goddess of destruction, plants a vile murderer among the mendicants. It is the legacy of this betrayal by Kali and her servant, Rahula, which plays out over the centuries and finally comes to a climax in modern day San Francisco.

The forces of good and evil, represented by Bodhi and Rahula, converge to battle in the present. Vengeance, disillusionment, karmic retribution, and trickery--these are the themes that play out in Bodhisattva.

Created, written and illustrated by Omaha Perez

Co-scripted by Richard Raleigh



"Unique and boldly imaginative, BODHISATTVA is infinitely more enlightened

--and enlightening-- than the average fantasy graphic novel."

-Vicki Arkoff / Midwest Book Review

"Great fun...and a wonderful fusion of classic Indian mythology and Kirbyesque cosmicness."

-J.M. DeMatteis / Moonshadow


“In these days of stamped-out frozen comic heroes, Omaha Perez ’s BODHISATTVA is a light

at the end of the tunnel leading words and pictures into a new and strange domain.”

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
