Even though I had read numerous Greek stories in school, including “Helen of Troy” I purchased this graphic novel version (Trojan horse: The fall of Troy by Justine & Ron Fontes and Gordon Purcell) of this ancient Greek tale.

In general the story follows this well-known ancient story's main theme, even though I had read a few other versions of this same tale. This graphic novel is organized into the following sections: The first part (A rotten apple) introduces the Greek Gods and the birth of Paris. The second part covers “The Weary War” and is where the Trojan horse is discovered on the beach. The third part Troy ignores “a woeful warning.” The fourth part deals with the sleeping city, in which they have dragged the Trojan horse into the city. The final part (The towers tumble) deals with the fall of Troy. There is also a glossary guide with further reading and websites.

The beautiful full color graphics in this novel are just fantastic. It really makes this ancient story come alive.
If you like Greek history and graphic novels you should check out this publication.

Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: The Samurai Soul: An old warrior’s poetic tribute).

Awful rendition of the classic, complete with misogyny. Wish I could give this a negative 5 stars.

My 9yr old really enjoyed this, as did I, but we both breezed thru it in no time. They would have done better to include more. The graphics were wonderful, though.
