Mahabharata- The cyber-punk style

An interesting new take on the ancient Indian Epic – Scottish playwright, Grant Morrison’s 18 Days is a spirited rendering  of the final climactic confrontation in the Mahabharata. It is presented in a graphic format with illustrations by Mukesh Singh.

Here’s some of the artwork from 18 Days created by Mukesh Singh, an illustrator and Sir J.J. School of Arts alumni.
