Review of 18 Days

“The Mahabharata Retold” – This new version of the Mahabharata is set in fantastic, mythic time, at the end of the Dwapara Yuga(Copper Age) and the beginning of the fallen, corrupt Kali Yuga, the Age of Iron.

From superstar creator Grant Morrison (All-Star Superman, Batman & Robin, The Invisibles), comes 18 Days, the story of three generations of super-warriors, meeting for the final battle of their age. 18 Days is a re-imagining of the great eastern myth, Mahabharata, and follows the course of the climactic war that concludes the period of the gods and begins the age of man. It is the prototype for every war ever fought. The scale is epic, wherein the most significant armies ever conceived face one another across the ultimate battlefield to decide the fate of the future. This hardcover illustrated script book from Dynamite Entertainment, and Liquid Comics offers readers a first glimpse into the mythic animated series being developed by Morrison. The book reveals the inner workings of the acclaimed writer’s process and features the original animation scripts, story bibles, character descriptions, and commentaries. Grant’s groundbreaking story is matched perfectly with original illustrations created by acclaimed artist, Mukesh Singh (Devi, Gamekeeper, Shadow Hunter).

The print quality of the book is excellent and has clear, some of the artwork is across pages, with the information in columns.

I have included some snippets of text with the images below to give you a better idea of the scale of the story. So just see the pictures below.

Highly recommended book if you are interested in a new perspective to Indian mythology. Rating 5/5
