Gr 3-6-These titles deliver short portions of the myths of six heroes in graphic-novel formats. The prose introductions and conclusions, which are illustrated with reproductions and photographs, often hold the most interesting bits of the stories. Several artists offer different styles, with uneven results, and omissions and several errors trouble the set. In Hercules, it is not noted that the spelling being used is the Roman, rather than the Greek. Odysseus mentions 11 men facing the Cyclops with Odysseus (it should be 12), and Perseus states that all three Gorgons were sisters punished by Athena (only Medusa was ever mortal). The seemingly computer-generated cover images are off-putting and may drive browsers away. Only libraries with a need for mythology comics should consider them.α(c) Copyright 2011.
