You've Never Seen The Epic Tale of Mahabharata Painted Quite Like This Before

Mukesh Singh

Artist Mukesh Singh has infused life in an epic tale of political and familial intrigue that has enthralled readers for centuries.

The artist in collaboration with Scottish playwright Grant Morrison, the writer of Batman, came up with '18 Days’, a graphic novel that added new depths to the most legendary battle ever fought in the Mahabharata. The book was published last year, following the animated series -- both were published by Bengaluru-based company Graphic India.

On its website, '18 Days’ is described as the "story of three generations of super-warriors, meeting for the final battle of their age. 18 Days is a re-imagining of the great myth, the Mahabharata and follows the course of the climactic war that concludes the age of the gods and begins the age of man."

Singh received a lot of praise for his work that has strong Western influences. Check out more illustrations here.
