From legendary creator Grant Morrison (All-Star Superman, Batman & Robin, The Invisibles), comes the first chapter in his newest creation. 18 Days is the story of three generations of super-warriors, meeting for the final battle of their age, a climactic war that concludes the age of the gods and begins the age of man. "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. 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." - Grant Morri more

    Overall, I'd say 18 Days is starting off extremely well. Issue one serves as a good starting point to anyone's research in Eastern philosophy. If not for that, it's all in all a really great story, being retold in a fun and interesting way. Morrison and Kang work so much in sync; this is one of the best books I've come across in a while, with a fantastic story and breathtaking artwork. For your own good, be sure to pick this up!

    "18 Days" could very well turn into an epic. This issue really sets up why the two sides are fighting and the moments before the battle begins. Priced at a dollar this comic book is a no-brainer for everyone. The Grant Morrison fans might feel disappointed as this is more of Morrison re-telling a story instead of really putting his stamp on it. This is a recommended comic book. Read Full Review

    this is currently one of my favorite comic series i'm reading next to IDW's Tmnt and 'Samurai' by Titan Comics . . . . . . been reading it since issue #1 came out. . . . . . i just don't understand why new issues aren't being posted on Comicbook Round Up, or why i'm not able to add this series to my C.B.R.U. 'pull-list'??? . . . . . the story is intriguing, as is the characters. you really feel for them and their plights. it a very emotionally driven story. . . . . . the art design is very colorful, and fantastical. . . . . . the only this that was very difficult for me was memorizing the names of characters. . . . . . they are very uncommon, and quite long. . . . . . but i am able to recognize most of the names of the key characters, even if i can't recite them off the top of my head. . . . . . this is a VERY awesome story, even if some of the art doesn't hold up to the point of being a little distracting. . . . . i am absolutely excited to see where this story goes.

    A fresh look at an ancient story, this first issues is essentially showing us the two sides of a forthcoming mythical battle as they stair at each other across the battlefield. I'd give the writing a 4, the art a 6, but when you factor in the price, then the book gets a considerable boost due to value delivered. Includes the first part of an interview with Morrison about the mythology of India (Gita, etc), and I can say - with some small authority in this field - that his knowledge is substantial and his work is very well-researched and referenced.
