and wide, hailing from countries far vibrant heart of Hong in theFluid Frictions international in-house team is based Kong. Working on each step of the creative process, from the very first conceptual discussions to the moment each book goes to print our mission is to create graphic novels of the highest calibre. Combining rich storylines with outstanding artwork to create dynamic, emotive and engaging stories. With DevaShard we want to create a world so vast that it stretches far beyond the confines of the page. Borrowing heavily from the Mahabharata, an existing historic text - every effort was made to create a narrative that is both fresh and consistent to the original. Think of each graphic novel as a brief glimpse into this vibrant, living world - with each story that unfolds offering a little insight into the lives of those it portrays. Its only when youre totally immersed in a story that you can fully appreciate the escapism it provides. Our aim is simple - we want you to escape; from the moment you eye the first page of a Fluid Friction graphic novel to the last panel of each closing chapter. Whether its a white knuckle, action packed page-turner, or a profoundly moving, weighty drama; your pure, unadulterated enjoyment is our goal. www.fluidfriction.com
