this was pretty good. you know how when you try to read a book that's trying to tell you a story on something and they tell it in a boring way. this book puts an end to that, thou when there was this extreemly long speech bubble and the character started to talk weird, then it got boring, and I tuned out a bit. the pictures were the things that kept me going, b/c to me a good graphic novel is as good as the pictures, unless the story line is really bad. to sum it up the illustrator is good, and a guy that is long dead knows how to make a captivating story.

This was a pretty good book, although it only took me 1 hour to read. I like it because I love mythological tales and stories.

I loved this. So did my 11 year old son. It told the story with well-drawn graphics. There was a little nudity and some sexuality. It wasn't blatant or crass though.

very straightforward and enjoyable, if only it were in color!

Frightening or Intense Scenes: there are a lot of those, so beware by the end. (unless you are a fan of people sweeping up the gore like it's the leaves in the yard)
