Thrilling comic-strip action, with monsters, mighty heroes and even mightier gods and goddesses.

The Iliad tells the story of the war between Greeks and Trojans; the love between Helena and Paris; Achilles and Hector's deadly combat; the Trojan Horse... The Odyssey depicts the perilous voyage home of the Greek warrior Odysseus; his struggles against the one-eyed Cyclops; the terrible Sirens; the dreadful, six-headed Scylla... These classic Greek stories have been retold with lively text and a dramatic cartoon style, making them accessible and fun for young children.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Likely to amuse and even absorb children for a good while... Has a kind of Where's Wally?-ish delight in visual minutiae. * The Times Educational Supplement *
Elegant, intelligent, funny, dramatic and totally absorbing; the perfect start to an early familiarity with Homer. * The Guardian *
Brings clarity and humour to these ancient myths... Surely the most entertaining way to explore ancient history. * Junior Education *
Gareth Hinds brings The Odyssey to life in a masterful blend of art and storytelling. Vivid and exciting, this graphic novel is a worthy new interpretation of Homer's epic. * Rick Riordan, author of Percy Jackson and the Olympians series *
"[...] this gutsy, electrifying retelling of both epics... will please both the finicky Homeric scholars and children encountering the full stories for the first time." * TLS *
