    The Second Volume in Grant Morrison’s ongoing 18 Days series is engaging. On the brink of war, Arjuna and Duryodhana seek the allegiance of someone so powerful that his presence alone can alter the outcome of the Great War: Lord Krishna, the living God. As this happens, we are treated to a stunning visual of Krishna in his Yoga Chamber (some seriously mesmerising artwork happened here).

On the brink of war, Arjuna and Duryodhana seek the allegiance of someone so powerful that his presence alone can alter the outcome of the Great War: Lord Krishna, the living God. As this happens, we are treated to a stunning visual of Krishna in his Yoga Chamber (some seriously mesmerising artwork happened here). Because, c’mon…when a God meditates, it has to be something mind-alteringly special. The two cousins make their choices and the path is set. And Dumbledore’s line (It is our choices, Harry…..which tells us who we truly are.) comes back to prove its potency yet again. Bheeshma’s terrible oath and its origins are also explored and we gradually flow into the tale of Draupadi. Two particular panels stand out for me here and still give me goosebumps. Slowly, we wander into a cutsie pie tale of the love story between Bhima and Hidimba and the birth of their superpowered and muchly adorable son, Gatok. We also get a glimpse into the Pandava Princes, Nakula and Sahadeva, who constantly live under the shadow of their more magnificent siblings. But there was a time when the two had an adventure of their own that could possibly have averted a greater tragedy. This was an endearing bit of reimagined backstory. Whether this tale exists in the original Mahabharata or not, it still blends beautifully into the known tale. We finally end with the illustrious king Yudish’ fall from grace as he enters a gambling den and sets of the cataclysmic chain of events that led to the battle at Kurukshetra. The writing is as strong and powerful as ever and the secrets and legends unfold with grace and alacrity. Definitely still hooked to this series.

Astras don’t win battles. Even armies don’t win battles. People win battles.” Summary: Volume 2 returns to the battlefield of Kurukshetra where the war between the Pandava and Kaurava clans is ongoing. Commander Bhisma has taken to the skies to decimate the Pandava army from his vimana while Bhim continues to wreak havoc among the Kaurava forces on the ground. Verdict: The back-and-forth nature of the story that in my opinion worked for the first volume seems to make this volume feel somewhat disjointed. Here, Duryodhana and Arjun seek to procure Krishna’s alliance, there is also an issue to highlight the oft-overlooked twins: Sahadev and Nakula who go on their own big adventure to save the world, the story also goes into flashback to show the friendship that existed between the Kaurava and Pandava brothers during their childhood and we see Bhisma and Bhim cause pandemonium in the battlefield. What does not move forward—and what I feel is exactly most readers want to see—is the war part. Though I am not a fan of the war section of the Mahabharata—I feel the planning and outsmarting that goes on in the evening is more interesting than the bloodshed—the war is inadvertently the most critical part of the epic. Krishna’s conniving is yet to come to the fore, the disrobing of Draupadi, and the gamble of Yudish are yet to come through. The story I feel focuses less on these pivotal points and more on other non-crucial aspects, especially in this volume. That makes this volume less interesting than the previous volume.

    I have written enough about the story and the graphics in the review of the first book. So from a storyline perspective this volume dips a bit in my view. Though in the first volume it sounded like a great idea to keep going back to the past it somehow falters in volume 2. The creators cannot do much here as there are so many sub plots and stories in Mahabharata that you will never be able to curate all. Still I wish they had moved the war along a bit more.

Now it seems volume three will be more about the war and less back stories when there are a lot of important stories missed out. Not sure how it will end in volume 3. Let's see

    Maybe because this volume was more about the back stories than the war itself, it was slow and the graphics weren't as awe-inspiring as the first one. But this is the first time I am reading about the Nakula-Sahadeva adventure. And I felt guilty for not giving them a thought even though I have read quite a few retellings of Mahabharatha. "They were content to stand in the shadows and be forgotten. For what super-warrior needs the glories of their deeds to be sung."

    There is a certainly a drop in the quality of writing, but the story building is great and is still a treat to read. Looking forward to the next volume.
