From the Inside Flap:

(back cover)
The ancient Greek hero Odysseus fought for nine long years in the terrible siege of Troy. Now, all he wants is to go home to his wife and son. But the voyage is long and perilous, and the god of the sea is his enemy. Will he ever see his home and family again?

In this new graphic novel version, Homer's famous epic is as fresh and exciting as it was when the story was first told--about three thousand years ago.
