I have no clue what I just read. Many aspects of this intrigued me. I really loved the artwork. There was a fully female cast which was refreshing and almost every body type was represented which again was nice to see. But the story itself was so confusing. The panels and dialogue were hard to fo...

While the idea is interesting, changing the setting of Homer's Odyssey to Sci-Fi and the genders all reversed, the actual execution is lacking. In some places the art is wow cool, in others I feel like I could draw a more accurate body on a humanoid character. Trying to match the prose style of ep...

A mind-blowing work of pure inspiration. An explosion of colour - horror and beauty combined in twisting panels of psychedelic sumptuousness.

I think my entire reading experience with this graphic novel is best summed up with the following gif: Followed closely with: I finished last night and I'm still thinking about it, but it's an uncomfortable kind of reflection. I don't think I'll be reading the rest of this series. I love Classics,...

I got this book for my birthday (thanks Joe and Alisha!) and it is really, really good. Matt Fraction and Christian Ward have re-served Homer's Odyssey with science fiction ice cubes and a gender-swap twist of lemon. As a big fan of the original Odyssey, I found this approach very interesting. To b...

Matt Fraction who did the best run of Hawkeye ever? And a gender-bent telling of The Odyssey? And it is not really gender-bent but has a third gender and barely any men? And it is in space? And has beautiful and confusing art? Yes, this is the perfect comic for me to read. Am I still confused abo...

A gender bent retelling of the Odyssey in graphic novel form? SIGN ME UP. It will be AMAZING. Or, you know, not. The art is pretty spiffy, I admit. But I have no clue what the actual fuck I just read. Fraction trying to be Homer, I guess? Better not, my friend.

Another completely fantastic recommendation from Elizabeth (that's two fabulous ones in one day!) and I am extremely happy that I got to reading this at last. Initially I was a little intimidated by this as I hadn't read the odyssey (the original) and so I thought I would maybe not 'get' this one...

I have not the slightest clue what I just read. It took me a while to realize this was a re-telling of the Odyssey. Page 14 to be precise: It's set in space. With an amazonian race of warrior-women. It took me a while to understand the concept due to the writing being so stilted. I think it was a...

Also available on the WondrousBooks blog. UGH This is a strong contender for the worst comic book I've read. I'm not sure if it's the worst one, but if I went back an ranked them, and this was not it, it would not be for the lack of trying. The story, all on itself, seems like it could somehow wor...
