We got this for my 7-year-old son who is into comics and LOVES monster/dragon adventures . . . some of the text was over his head, and the concepts (prophecy, revenge etc.) are pretty sophisticated. The drawings are awesome -- Medusa and the Kraken are truly scary -- without much blood or gory violence. The classic themes are all there, and now we have fun noticing where we see references (to Medusa, Gorgons, Sea Monsters) in the media and entertainment all around us. Not to mention stargazing and seeing Perseus, Cassiopeia and their family in the night sky! This is a sturdy book (for a comic) that will last for years and surely be "rediscovered" on the bookshelf again and again. A welcome diversion from Superhero comics and a good addition to any library of kids' graphic novels.

I'd have to reread the original german text to verify how accurate this comic book interpretation is with regards to following the original play's script. Obviously an abridged comic story is going to omit details and condense the storyline. I was still impressed though how well and succinctly the general message and interpretation of the intent of the original play's meaning was delivered. I love this version that I can share with my kids and relate a summary of the intent of the original story in minutes.

This is a well drawn, well written version of the Perseus myth. I esp. like that there's a glossary and a related-reading page at the end of the book. My kid is all into myths, and he's going into 3rd grade, so he's just reading for pleasure now. this is a great way to get him to read for pleasure.

I enjoyed this one along with Beowulf, Odysseus, and Atalanta. This one is action-packed, so it is a great enticement for young readers. It includes the killing of the Medusa, the killing of a sea monster, a romance with a beautiful Ethiopean queen, a fight with an Ethiopean army, and a final encounter with a lustful king who wants his mother. Each event is narrated in details, no survey quality to it. This is a 5 plus.

My grandson hesitates to read, but loves comics and Kindle books. He loved the adventure, the excitement and the pictures. He's reading the classics and they feel like comics.

This is the comic book version of the William Tell story. This is great for teachers to use for doing a compare and contrast essay to meet the Common Core standards.
