18 DAYS by Grant Morrison

The video series is just snippits to warm you up for the graphic novel.

18 Days, is a re-imagining of the great eastern myth, 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 of face one another across the ultimate battlefield to decide the fate of the future. Featuring the complete illustrated 144-page script book from Liquid Comics and will allow 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).

"18 Days is a labor of love made all the more exciting by having a collaborator as original and groundbreaking as Mukesh. His techno-Vedic superheroes and spectacular scenes of cosmic warfare bring a dazzling new and contemporary dimension to one of the world's greatest stories."
- Author, Grant Morrison

"Grant Morrison is a post-modern myth-maker."
- Deepak Chopra, from the introduction

"Readers are immediately cast into the inner workings of Morrison's mind and there is little time to take pause and reorient oneself. Yet, this feeling of being thrown deep into the creative waters is not disorienting as Morrison's skills as a craftsman and storyteller are vividly apparent from the inception. Adding to this comfort in unfamiliar territory are the stellar visualizations and designs by Mukesh Singh."
