Dynamite Entertainment in publishing pact with Liquid Comics

MUMBAI: Dynamite Entertainment and Liquid Comics have entered a publishing partnership to release an illustrated hardcover book featuring the original scripts created by Grant Morrison for his animated project ‘Grant Morrison‘s 18 Days.‘

18 Days is a re-imagining of Mahabharata and tells the story of three generations of super-warriors, meeting for the final battle of their age. 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.
The film follows the course of the climactic war that brings about the end of the Third Age that sees the beginning of the Dark Age we all now live in. It is the prototype for every war ever fought - and at its heart conveys a warning for all of us and a message that can change lives.

Though the animated series is in its pre-production stage at Liquid Comics and co-owner Perspective Studios, the collector‘s item book will allow readers a first glimpse into the mythic universe created by Morrison known for All Star Superman, Batman & Robin and The Invisibles. 
The book reveals the inner workings of the acclaimed writer‘s process and features the original unedited scripts, story bible, character descriptions and commentary. Morrison‘s groundbreaking story is matched perfectly with dozens of original illustrations created by acclaimed Indian artist, Mukesh Singh.

Comments Morrison, "18 days is a labour of love that makes 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."

Avers Liquid CEO, Sharad Devarajan, "18 Days takes one of the most enduring tales of the East and places it in the capable hands of Morrison, one of the greatest storytellers of the West. Combined with the visual spectacle of Mukesh Singh‘s artwork, this is a book that goes beyond myth, beyond generations and beyond borders transcending the story‘s origins and showing the world a dynamic new vision of gods and war." "Dynamite is the ideal partner to help us bring this book to all fans of comics, pop culture and myth," he adds.

Dynamite plans on releasing the hardcover book in August 2010. In addition, Liquid and Perspective are currently developing an animated series and video game based on the Grant Morrison story.
