  • Nilufar rated this: 2.5 stars out of 5.

Reads almost like Coles Notes. The narration is very fast paced and discourages dwelling on characters and happenings. The artwork is technically well executed but uninspired and adds nothing to the story (Zeus, Agamemnon and Odysseus are indistinguishable, which provides -at least- some comic relief).
