"There is much to be learned from this volume, not just about the comic art form but also about classics, which is truly the best and most productive form of reception studies."--Anastasia Bakogianni, The Classical Review
"Classics and Comics
is a useful compendium of essays for students of the reception of classical mythology, literature, and history in the modern world, as well as for students of narrative theory. The volume makes accessible to a wider critical audience the theoretical and practical criticism of these media from the last decade and earlier." --Bryn Mawr Classical Review
"Whether the reader is liberal or specialized in his or her preferences regarding criticism, Classics and Comics
is a dense work that will provide considerable food for thought." --World Literature in Review
"This collection of essays can persuade classicists who have yet to venture into comics to go boldly." --Mouseion
