      Read this as part of GettingGrpahic and it wasn t really for me Although there are some striking pages with full body rendering and colourful pops of art the story leaves the reader lost a lot of the time It s a sort of story where you are thrown into the action and you have to try to figure out what is really going on without much backstory and with a lot of kill kill kill stab stab stab going on Overall, just an ok read for me, I wouldn t continue the series sadly 2 s

      I enjoyed this for what it is a preview, a set of creators notes, for what I hope will be a lush and truly epic looking tale of sweeping grandeur Knowing the Hollywood system can take great creations and turn them to shit with incredibly little effort, I can only hope that won t happen here that they won t cheap out on the gorgeous art, or pander to the morons and turn this into a brown people s Star Wars knock off There s too much rich history, culture, allegory and spirituality in these ancien [...]

      I had high hopes that I would be excited by this collaboration between Grant Morrison and a group of Indian creators While I don t love Morrison s work, I am always looking for diversity in what I read, so I was very interested in this graphic take on an Indian myth, Mahabharata Unfortunately, the book just wasn t for me The art is beautiful, but the story can be summed up as a bunch of dudes are about to go to war They posture a lot Then there s some beat downs Oh god, there s 17 days of this [...]

      Spoilers ahead The book is only a prelude they seem like concept notes and artwork , and covers only the tiniest fraction of the whole story There are extensive notes on characters, settings, weapons, etc which is fun, but gets tedious after a while The story has been tweaked a little bit, but that s no sin to me The writing, on the other hand.Read this mainly for Mukesh Singh s brilliant artwork Morrison s ideas are fun, but the over epic ness of everything here is nauseating His writing is bor [...]

      I plan on reading the Mahabharata so it doesn t really bother me that this comic is unfinished I love the epic battle and interesting mythology

    6. Karthik M on said:

      just as it is tough for Indians to write in a compact way devoid of all heavy words, it is tough for outsiders to get the concepts of Indian epics correct Too much epic ness in everthings ruins this otherwise well illustrated book I had hoped Grant Morrison would bring in a fresh prespective to Mahabharatha like Shekhar Kapur did with Ramayana 3392 A.D , but I felt let down he hung onto the cliched westerner s vocabulary of describing the weapons and the warriors wielding them And over, for a bo [...]

      Follow the ongoing Youtube series Brilliant brilliant re telling of the Mahabharata by none other than the one god of re booting series, Grant Morrison Must read for all comic, history fans

      This review includes the Collector s Book Issues of the Graphic India Series 1 26, and Avatarex 1 3 Grant teamed up with Graphic India as a challenge to reinvigorate his interest in the superhero concept, which he felt diminishedly lest inteeste in the Western Tradition In the Big Two, the superhero ideal is still enmeshed in the post traumatic superhero, still reeling from 9 11 and part of the military industrial complex Morrison sees it currently at a standstill dead end except when he s doing [...]

      Next time a Hare Krishna comes up to me and asks me to buy the Bhagavad Gita, I hope to have a copy of Morrison s graphic novel 18 Days on me, because I swear I will try to sell it to them This is Morrison at his best again This awesome modern, comic visual rendition allowed me to glimpse insight than when I read parts of the Mahabharata, like the Bhagavad Gita, in just text It was also much easier to keep track of the characters in the graphic novel vs the text It really embodied some of the c [...]

    10. Vinayak Hegde on said:

      Exceptional artwork though a little dark But possibly appropriate since it is a book covering a war and the darker side of human nature and conflict The text is mostly lucid and could be a little less pompous at times The reimagining of Mahabharata is done really well with influences drawn from sci fi, steampunk as well as traditional attire influences from Rajasthan turbans , Maharashtra Marathas and Kerala Kathakali Theyyam makeup

    11. Vipul Musani on said:

      Very rich illustrations to the age old story which makes it a superb read Truly fascinating.

      Opera straordinaria ma difficile da recensire, fosse solo per la sua particolarissima natura.Non un fumetto, non una graphic novel, ma un libro che illustra gli schizzi preparatori, i disegni, le bozze e gli appunti di un pi vasto progetto multimediale di Grant Morrison Largamente anticipato, diversi anni prima, da questo libro, il progetto finale finalmente stato reso pubblico, sotto la particolarissima natura di motion comic, su un canale youtube apposito.Quindi, il problema come recensire un [...]

    13. Gaurav Vartak on said:

      Grant Morrison s take on Mahabharata is not for sticklers It messes up the time line, brings in flying machines referred to as vimanas , has Tron like bows for Arjun and Karna, has techno atomic maces for Duryodhana and Bheema, named Shatterstar and Worldbreaker respectively, and has the characters use futuristic gadgets such as binoculars straight from a sci fi movie And, I am no expert on Mahabharata, but it might also alter a few things from the original version But, at its core, it remains t [...]

      Disclaimer if you don t know exactly what the deal is, you might be annoyed So, anyway, this is a concept book for a project that I m still ultra sad didn t get made to completion, although I harbor fantasies of the artist at least drawing out the rest of the episodes.Disclaimer 2 I grew up on the 95 episode serialized version of the Mahabharat now on YouTube, even with subtitles and as such am about as objective about this as a polar bear would be about shrinking ice caps At some point I did tr [...]

    15. Sachin Dev on said:

      This is clearly a teaser book a glimpse into the mad swirling genius of Mukesh Singh combined with the post modern myth maker Grant Morrison s sweeping ambitious vision and story telling the story by itself, with a lot of poetic license sticks true to the core of Mahabharata, the 18 day war between the Kauravas and Pandavas the creative license here that Morrison takes actually jars with the original multi layered narrative that we are familiar with Post apocalyptic super heroes on gravity defyi [...]

    16. Ian Vance on said:

      The art is spectacular, no doubt about it, and I hedged on awarding this three stars for that facet alone Unfortunately, the writing that accompanies the art veers between inspired and insipid, often on the same page While some leeway may exist given that these are the creator notes coupled with the first three scripts of an as yet unproduced web cartoon, still, a little editing was in order before releasing this to the public The writing swings from formal to informal at the drop of a hat vast [...]

      This book from Dynamite Entertainment, is a preview for an animated motion comic series from Grant Morrison, in a reimagining of the mythic tale, Mahabharata and follows the course of the climactic war that concludes the age of the gods and begins the age of man It is the prototype for every war ever fought The scale is epic, wherein the biggest armies ever conceived face one another across the ultimate battlefield to decide the fate of the future.Inside is a detailed pitch for the series, incl [...]

      The story Super haphazard Now I, being Indian, know the Mahabharata very well, but for someone who does not have a clue, this will be a nightmare to read.If one is planning to write about the story of the Mahabharata in a quick and dirty, abridged sort of a way, one HAS TO, at worst, start with Dushmanta and Shakuntala And follow a pattern.I would have loved for this story to have followed a linear pattern, like Sandman, say, and tell a story This one, well, had way too may flashbacks.This story [...]

      I m very mixed in my feelings about this 1 This isn t the actual comic, and that always pisses me off I really hate it when preliminary work is marketed and released before the final product is ready These are Morrison s storylines and character descriptions on which the comics will be based Arranged chronologically and accompanying preliminary art work in a picture book not a comic book format 2 The art is AMAZING Really, if these prelims are any indication, the art is going to kiss ass 3 I jus [...]

      To all those who are reading this buy it This a making of book for the comic animated tv movie series of 18 days I don t know what exactly has been planned by Morrison and the publishers for this sequence but this particular book is worth the money you pay and just for Mukesh Singh s art work I am not an avid art fan or collector but I saw a few excerpts on the net and decided to order the book online The book s cover and quality were enough to blow my apprehensions to smithereens Some of the g [...]

    21. Shane on said:

      I read enough of this to get an idea of what was going on and then just flipped through it and drooled over the art The concept is amazing and would make such an incredible movie or series, especially if the art was done by the same artist.Unfortunately reading it is a little boring It s like a storyboard instead of a script But it sounds like it never got picked up and funded Does Mr Morrison know about kickstarter I feel like he could put this out and get enough cash to make something happen.

      Just a preview of Morrison s upcoming animated series, but very cool looking I liked the Ramayan comics put out by Virgin before they had their identity crisis, this seems to be in the same vein bring in a big name writer to make cool mythological comics Except they re going to be web cartoons, apparently.It s essentially the writer s bible and script for the first three episodes of the series, with a lot of art previews and sketches, which is neat if you re into behind the scenes look at the co [...]

    24. Varsha Dinesh on said:

      Sci fi Mahabharata Enough said Disclaimer gorgeous art Check Inventive retelling Check Adherence to the plot of the original Not so much This is derivative of Mahabharata, not an absolute retelling, and thus has its differences There is also an animated version of this by Graphic India available on YouTube, complete with terrible voice acting, stop motion like animation and weird anime style music It s still worth watching for the sci fi.

    25. Squeasel on said:

      Repetitive sketchy masturbatory descriptions of 10 million Super Warrior men, dinosaur men, etc and their way supercool man armor And David Bowie I mean Krishna Vague references that there might be two or three women oops, I meant to say girls involved in backstory that it never gets to Glad I got it out of a highly discounted bargain bin.

      Covers the first three episodes of Grant Morrison s 18 Days animated series We get commentary on his vision for the series as well as character introductions Scripts for each epsiode are included Interspersed through the text are concept images by Mukesh Singh, ranging from sketches to fully finished paintings For Morrison completionists only.

    27. Kerry on said:

      I need to own a copy of this The artwork is unbelievably stunning I actually stopped reading the script because I was completely drawn in by the images I really hope that this becomes what it is proposed to be because it will be absolutely amazing.

    28. Siva Ranjan on said:

      Legendary Grant Morrison s take on the greatest story ever told but even he can t do justice to the compelling and nuanced characters In recent times it s Gurucharan Das who comes close to lay out the complexity of the character shades in his book the difficulty of being good.
