9780763642662: The Odyssey

With bold imagery and an ear tuned to the music of Homer’s epic poem, Gareth Hinds reinterprets the ancient classic as it’s never been told before.

"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 the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series

Fresh from his triumphs in the Trojan War, Odysseus, King of Ithaca, wants nothing more than to return home to his family. Instead, he offends the sea god, Poseidon, who dooms him to years of shipwreck and wandering. Battling man-eating monsters, violent storms, and the supernatural seductions of sirens and sorceresses, Odysseus will need all his strength and cunning—and a little help from Mount Olympus—to make his way home and seize his kingdom from the schemers who seek to wed his queen and usurp his throne. Award-winning graphic artist Gareth Hinds masterfully reinterprets a story of heroism, adventure, and high action that has been told and retold for more than 2,500 years—though never quite like this.

About the Author:

Gareth Hinds is the creator of several acclaimed graphic novels based on classics. About THE ODYSSEY, he says, "It was incredibly exciting to work with this material. Gods, monsters, flawed heroes, battles, and all the best and worst of human nature, set against an ancient Mediterranean backdrop. It s a dream project."

Gareth Hinds lives in Watertown, Massachusetts.

Review:

A timeless long-ago past comes alive in these images of gods and heroes, monsters and enchantresses; of mayhem, lovemaking, and touching reunions-all arrayed in frames whose shape, number, and palette expertly pace and propel the story. As introduction, outline, illustration, and visual translation, a worthy companion to its great predecessors. --The Horn Book (Starred Review), November 1, 2010

Holds nothing back and is proudly, grittily realistic rather than cheerfully cartoonish... Big, bold, beautiful. --Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review), October 1, 2010

Does genuine justice to Homer's epic poem...Thrilling. --The Wall Street Journal, October 23, 2101

... with this graphic-novel interpretation Hinds will hook some of those holdouts who have thus far resisted The Odyssey's lure. ...the depth of the dialogue, the outstanding individuation of characters, and the patient and lovingly developed flow between frames often in wordless stretches make the work accessible. Hinds' delicate pencil lines and softly blended watercolors coax an amazing variety of moods and settings from the sandy beiges and sea blues dictated by the Mediterranean milieu. Monstrous encounters and the suitor slaughter are satisfyingly sanguinary, and although Odysseus' dalliances are perhaps less discreetly presented than some middle-school collections will permit, librarians who subscribe to the "They've seen worse in the movies" school of thought will happily extend this to a junior-high audience. --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (Starred Recommended, Gr. 9-12), January 2011

Does genuine justice to Homer's epic poem...Thrilling. --The Wall Street Journal, October 23, 2101
