    Comic Bastards - Nick Philpott Apr 8, 2015

    This is largely unrelated to the issue as a whole, but the article in the back by Colman posits Homer and the other aoidoi (oral poets) of ancient Greece as the freestyle rappers of the day, with their own Antiquity-style rap battles. I cannot wait to see a modern day AU of that somewhere on tumblr in the near future. Colman also points out that terms like "rosy-fingered dawn" and "wine-dark sea," which show up all the time, are easy mnemonics for remembering the poem; if you can fill in the rest of the line, you've already got the rhyme set up. It's that kind of attention to detail and making this new thing like the old thing in all the ways that build the world that make Ody-C so much fun to read. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Yamini C Apr 10, 2015

    The Odyssey has always been densely verbal and textual, but through sequential art, Ward and Fraction renew the wonder, adventure, and escapism of the original myths. “Genderbent Odyssey in space” as a premise is by itself enough to get me interested, but what they've created here, and continued with Ody-C #4 is art. Art that drawsthe reader in, encourages them to think deeper,and reminds them just why these stories are as enduring as they are, even in such a vastly different form. All I can say is: more, please.

    "ODY-C" builds better on its strengths every month. The script comes closer and closer to the rhythmic quality of verse, and the art goes deeper and deeper into this trippy vision of the universe. It's wonderful to see a book grow this way, and I can't wait for issue #5. Read Full Review
