Odyssey HC (2012 Bloomsbury) comic books
1st printing. Based on the poem by Homer. Adapted by Seymour Chwast. Seymour Chwast, an icon of the graphic design world, turns to Homer's Odyssey, one of the best-known stories in history. The tale is one that begs for visual interpretation, filled with mythic characters we all know well: the Cyclops, the Lotus-Eaters, the cannibal Laestrygonians, the Sirens, the monster Scylla (beside the whirlpool Charybdis), Poseidon, Athena, and Zeus. Featuring a bold black, white, and blue interior design throughout, and imbued with Chwast's own sly humor, The Odyssey brings us a dazzling new vision of one of the epic journeys. Hardcover, 128 pages, PC. Cover price $20.00.
