    I've read a few times that Matt Fraction doesn't think very highly of his faux Greek hexameter, but his effort really pays off by the way even small bouts of exposition become interesting under the hynotic syntax. Paired with Ward's art, the two provide this comic a feeling as though it's originating unfiltered from their imaginations. Their understanding of this classic myth and storytelling more generally exudes onto each page. I recommend Ody-C to anyone bored by nine panel structures who want to get lost in a comic's art.

    ODY-C is back and it's just as sumptuous in its narrative and artwork as readers have now come to expect from this psychotropic pairing of talents. Read Full Review

    If you are looking for a comic book series that it's a bit more lithe and friendly, this is not the comic for you. If you are looking for a new yet accurate homage-type interpretation of Homer's Odyssey, this is not the comic for you. If you're looking for something both challenging and sensual in its art and storytelling, coupled with an unconventional myriad of narratives in a sci-fi setting so typically overdone, then you've found your next comic.

    We The Nerdy - Roshan Krishnan Aug 13, 2015

    Overall, Ody-C #6 is more Ody-C; if Ody-C is too heavy and you prefer your comic books with levity, I would not recommend this issue. However, if you are an admirer of mythology and enjoy reading about social issues, Ody-C is right up your alley. Keep in mind that this issue serves as the perfect jumping on point as the first five issues are connected to this one only by theme and by setting. Fraction and Ward have once again created a literary masterpiece that increases in scope without losing any of its humor and intellect. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - William Evans Aug 12, 2015

    ODY-C comes back after a short break and goes left with the story, which expands the scope beyond Oddysia's quest home. It does some things well, and some story elements get a little lost in the wash, but overall a solid installment to continue the story. Read Full Review

    Come for the visuals, worldbuilding, and Fraction's delicious caption boxes, but make sure to keep Wikipedia at the ready. Read Full Review

    A complex and daunting read, Ody-C #6 deviates from a previously familiar narrative to offer a sometimes baffling but beautifully illustrated story Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett Aug 12, 2015

    There may be some that find enough value in Ward's presentation to stick with ODY-C. It's somewhat painful seeing his skills strapped to this ship sinking under the weight of its own pretenses though. Beautiful woodwork and sails are not what is required to cross an ocean, and even the most astonishing artwork can't cover the flaws of ODY-C. Read Full Review
