“A tongue-in-cheek retelling of Homer’s Odyssey in the style of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid.”

Caroline Lawrence, ‘The Roman Quests’, ‘The Roman Mysteries’, ‘P.K.Pinkerton Mysteries’ and more.

Greek Myth Comix was originally started to help the students in my Classics KS4 and KS5 classes to understand the concepts behind the Homeric epics and Greek pantheon.

Please feel free to show the comix in situ on the website in class or email links to students, but please don’t copy and save them without giving credit.
