Liquid Comics and Dynamite Entertainment have gotten superstar comic writer Grant Morrison to create 18 Days, a graphic novel-style adaptation of the Indian epic Bhagavad Gita, the sacred Hindu scripture from the Mahabharata, set during the Kurukshetra War. Liquid’s Sharad Devarajan calls it a “true East meets West collaboration,” which will start as an illustrated hardcover book and an animated series that is in pre-production at Liquid Comics and Perspective Studios. Morrison is the prolific DC Comics guy behind such titles as All Star Superman, Batman & Robin, and The Invisibles. The graphics in the book are created by Indian artist Mukesh Singh.
