The Homeric epics have repeatedly inspired various creators and have thus been retold, adapted, and rendered into various art forms. The Odyssey shifts between the real world at Homer’s time and the fantasy world at the time of the Trojan War. The graphic novel is above all the type of art which can illustrate these two worlds simultaneously, achieving both recreational and educational goals. The rhapsodies are faithful to the original text. Despite its rich vocabulary, the language used is simple. Nevertheless, it maintains a narrative rhythm reminiscent of the original rhythmic scheme. The short texts at the end of the book provide useful information not only about Homer and Odysseus, but also about the time period of the Odyssey in general.
