I = THE ILIAD, illustrated! by Gareth Hinds (graphic novel book review)
After The Odyssey comes the war against Troy,and the gods have chosen sides! As with his adaptation of The Odyssey, Hinds quotes the important speeches that drive the story forward and transmutes the voluminous descriptive text into his illustrations. Keeping track of so many names and affiliations in the classic Greek tale is so much easier with Hinds’ distinct armor and headgear, color-coding, and layouts. The ugly business of war in colorful garb… Who was right in the Trojan War? **kmm Book info: The Iliad: A Graphic Novel Adaptation / Gareth Hinds. Candlewick Press, 2019.
