This is, unfortunately, one of those awful books that attempts to make history or a work of classical literature 'fun' by making said work into a comic book. As per usual, said 'comic' bears no relation to an actual comic. More akin to an illustrated picture book, this book has no pacing and no flow. The captions feel like they were pulled out of a text book describing the Mahabharata and the dialogue is stilted and both dialogue and captions frequently crowd out the art making the pages indecipherable (although the art is lovely). This is "a spoon full of sugar to make the medicine go down", but the medicine is a whole bottle of castor oil.
