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, including the story, characters and layout for scenes in this mythic tale, together with concept art, fully rendered artwork and a script from the chapters in the story. The art by Mukesh Singh that features in the book, as demonstrated in the cover art, is simply stunning, the attention to detail is just something else, and is the reason why I bought this hardcover book!

If you picked up the book just for the art, like me, then it's well worth it. It's just a shame that the art that is in the actual animated series (which you can see on the Graphic India YouTube channel) isn't the same that's in this book.

Gorgeous, fine detailed art. I truly wish I could frame each image and display them around my whole house!
There is tons of backstory provided on each character before you even begin reading the epic tale - so it's something you get to digest slowly.

Quality of the hardback is excellent as well as the delivery packaging and service.

Morrison took years to finally get his Superman ideas accepted (and packed in All Star Superman). This sounds like a plan to something future, and what a marvelous story it would be. I quite liked the hindi aestethics made famous in the Virgin Comics line. This is Sci-Fi combined with Epic Mythology and the only reason to be sad is... it shows us what could be, what could become... and then it closes the door. I hope these two get the time and occasion to get back to this project.

Also, not sure this was the best format , or at least the best material. Be careful with the book when you flip pages, it's very fragile.

This book is basically about the idea for a film or a comic that had awesome art and good story but nothing was done about it. So now you just have a bunch of pretty art in a book

Unfullfilled Promises 27 July 2011
By Tattoos By Dr Who - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The art is beautiful but this book does not tell a story. It is a draft of a poject that has never got off the ground.

On the spine it lets you know presumably that it is Book 1 in a series, but you can go crazy trying to find any real info on where this project is going.

Over the last year I have wasted hours trying to get and update and I have owned it since the day it was released.

I would love more than anything to see it to fruition, but with the publishers and author both not keeping us informed or offering anything in months; I have lost hope for it.

It could be the most beautifully illustrated story in history if it was reorganized and finished in storybook form.

I hope the inspiration that caused it, will cause it to be finished one day.

Sublime art 27 Feb 2011
By A.D.Joshi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have known the artist since college days and kept in touch with him on and off over the years, as a personal friend my review is bound to be a bit biased as I was fortunate enough to see some of the artwork being created on a chance meeting. But still here it is. Take it for what it is.

As a practising Hindu, the story and the characters are familiar but their visual take is surprising. The artwork is as usual, brilliant. But the sheer scale and detail blows the mind away. A mixture of comic art and concept art, a must have book for anyone wishing to see Grant Morrison's brilliant take on the spic Mahabharata.

Not the Whole Story 6 Feb 2011
By A. Murphy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Before you buy this, be sure you understand that it is not actually a story by Grant Morrison. It's his proposal for an animated series based on the sprawling Indian epic, the Mahabharata. The illustrations are truly gorgeous, but the quirky transcendent ideas usually associated with Morrison's work are not evident here. What you get instead are several pages of character studies, then the script for the first couple of episodes, and that's it. Neither the prose nor the concepts capture the imagination. It's not hard to see why this series never got off the ground; despite his repeated insistence on how cool these "super-warriors" are, Morrison simply fails to make us care about the characters or understand why the war is really being fought. The art sure is pretty, though.

Easy five stars. Hands down the best artwork I've seen. 16 Aug 2013
By Jayadev Jayaraman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Got it delivered and looking through it. IMHO worth every single penny just for the artwork, which is absolutely stunning in the landscape orientation. Again in my opinion, justice can't be done by looking at this on a tablet or a PC. It needs the landscape oriented picture-book form factor with you looking on from 8 inches above.

The added narrative is quite engrossing too, at least in style and presence. I don't know if it is possible to do justice in terms of substance and depth as an alternate narrative since we're talking about one of the 2 great Indian epics, so I'll hold off on that ...

One thing to note is that the narrative is non-linear, which is a brilliant ( and quite fitting) touch !

Note that this is book 1 of a series and if I'm right, book 2 hasn't turned up and I don't know if the authors will resume. That might be a turn-off for eager buyers but it shouldn't subtract from the good work done here.

Illustrations are incredible 30 Jun 2013

I love India's Mythology and this is a total different art approach to the stories, but I find them innovative.
