From Agence France-Presse:
The life of Indian-born NASA astronaut Kalpana Chawla, who died when space shuttle Columbia disintegrated while re-entering the Earth's atmosphere two years ago, has been immortalised in comic book form.
A 32-page graphic novel was released at a local bookstore and on the Internet on Sunday as part of the Amar Chitra Katha series of Indian heroes and historical events published by India Book House.
Ordering information and further details are here.

Just received a copy of this from an Indian colleague, and it is very nicely done... a lot of family history / early childhood stuff I did not know, nicely told and rounding out her life story very well.
