I say this as a huge Morrison fan: I am feeling more than a little trepidation about this.

Surely the Mahabharata can only be presented in a seventeen thousand episode Saturday morning series on BBC 2.

I think it's still going on

I can never trust Grant Morrison after We3 and how it traumatized me.

I will always trust a person who is willing to hang it out there and take risks. I'd much rather watch an interesting failure than a safe success.

The music could be a bit calmer, but the first video detailing the Yugas is pretty compelling. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this!

Too much exposition and the music is awful. I LOVE Grant's work and this is making me sad. Planetary as a cartoon instead, please?

Eh, they can't all be The Invisibles and All-Star Superman, ya know? Sometimes you get The Filth.

Da Fug? The Filth's brilliant, man!

The Filth's brilliant, man!

I so agree, it's obviously not for everyone, but i loved it. Also loved his run on New X-Men, which is one of my favorite modern runs of the X-Men. I'm also too aware of how hit or miss he can be at times, especially when doing live action.

Oops. This isn't live action, i'm not awake. :P

Perhaps not your intention, but that makes it sound like Planetary was a Grant Morrison project, whereas it was written by Warren Ellis. A cartoon version would indeed be interesting though, particularly the genre-shifts of the earlier issues.

Dear MUD, you give me too great a grace. Indeed, I found Morrison and Ellis at the same time and often confuse their projects. Both dream of certain utopias or at least proffer them. That said, GIVE ME A PLANETARY CARTOON ALREADY, DAMMIT.
