Abstract

Folk epics were used to be the story that passed down over generations through the world of mouth, or as a literature. Nowadays, several numbers of folk epic have been adapted into cultural products, such as comic. Mahabharata is one of numerous folk epics from India, which was adapted into comic by R. A. Kosasih. Some may have approached works of literature, including folk epic, by using myth criticism, in order to explore the hidden elements contained in the works. This study defines the archetypal character of Karna in Mahabharata, based on Joseph Campbell’s hero’s journey, and examines the development of Campbell’s hero’s journey. This study was examined by using Roland Barthes’s semiotic as a method to identify the underlying message behind the portrayal of the character of Karna in Mahabharata by applying the idea of Campbell’s the hero’s journey. There are some attempts in order to create a new perspective about hero through the character of Karna, as a character who is a part of common people, as well as a part of the villains. This study reveals that development of Campbell’s the hero’s journey leads Karna to be a new variant of hero.
