18 DAYS is the prototype for every war ever fought. 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. This hardcover illustrated book and digital e-book from Graphic India will allow readers a first glimpse into the mythic animated series being developed by Morrison. The book reveals the inner workings of the acclaimed writer’s process and features the original animation scripts, story bibles, character descriptions and commentaries.
“The War begins with the clash of super-titans, armed with incredible weaponry. The characters are huge, cool, easy to identify with, to cheer or hiss at. The stakes are high, as is the body count. The vistas are spectacular. We think we know who the bad guys are… and who the good guys are… In 18 Days, however, a character’s strength often proves to be his downfall or weakness— This is not a Lord of the Rings or a Star Wars where the good guys win because they are right. The ‘good guys’ in 18 Days are forced to cheat and lie and break rules to win.” -Grant Morrison
“Bhima is the tank of the team, with the appetite to match his size. He’s the kind of non-stop war-machine needed in a struggle like this one. He’s the Wolverine — the badass, no-messing-around, hero we all love. He also carries an unforgettable MACE — quite simply an enormous techno-atomic hammer of the gods! Compared to this apocalyptic weapon, the hammer of Thor is a tiny fire-alarm window breaker.” – Grant Morrison
“A Psychedelic Lord of the Rings with Star Wars technology”
– Huffington Post
“Readers are immediately cast into the inner workings of Morrison’s mind and there is little time to take pause and reorient oneself. Yet, this feeling of being thrown deep into the creative waters is not disorienting as Morrison’s skills as a craftsman and storyteller are vividly apparent from the inception. Adding to this comfort in unfamiliar territory are the stellar visualizations and designs by Mukesh Singh.” – Broken Frontier
“Although it has fantastic, mythic trappings, this is a very modern story of realpolitik and the failure of ideals in the face of harsh truth. This epic ends with the destruction of a super-race of kingly humans and paves the way for the current Dark Age in which we live. The essential ambiguity, humanity and realism of these characters, set in this incredible world of the imagination, gives 18 Days its unique flavor. The tone is modern, gritty and emotionally real against a backdrop of techno-mythic super-war.” -Grant Morrison
