A Marvel graphic novel adaptation of the Greek classic. Covers the story of Odysseus after the sacking of Troy, to his another decade epic journey home, and the retaking of his home. There’s the usual meddling of the gods. I’m not sure how the original Greek poem was like; this version also splices the narrative of his wife’s Penelope’s and his son Telemachus.

An accessible and visual introduction to the epic poem. Also has endnotes on the origins of the Illiad and Odyssey.
