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.
Once I'd digested the visuals (which took some several flip-throughs), there's Morrison's design diaries and notes to dig into. This is no less exciting, as the man is an exciting visionary and reinventor - he knows his mythology and his archetypes. Supposedly a treatment for the basic setup and first three episodes of an animated series "still in production", I haven't managed to find any solid information on whether it is languishing in preproduction hell or if work is actually coming along. In some ways, it might be even more exciting like this - unfettered ideas, possibilities positively exploding out of the text. The notes echoes the hyperstructure of the planned narrative.
All in all, it is a ridiculous bargain at this price. I will treasure this book.
Unfortunately reading it is a little boring. It's like a storyboard, instead of a script. But it sounds like it never got picked up and funded. Does Mr. Morrison know about kickstarter.com? I feel like he could put this out and get enough cash to make something happen.
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.
