Science fiction version of the Odyssey Translated into a science-fiction future, this comic collection tells the story of the Odyssey with the male characters and female ones swapped. The “gods” interfere as Odyssia’s journey home to Ithicaa lasts longer than planned. It also includes an alternative look at the story of Prometheus. The artwork is a bit messy and there is overuse of colour to my taste and there’s plenty of female nudity, sex and violence. The writing is quite literary and can be confusing. This is the first volume as there is clearly more to come.
