Thursday, March 21, 2019

THE NEW YORK TIMES -- Creative visual retellings include Gareth Hinds’ graphic novel The Odyssey, Marvel’s comic series from 2008 to 2009 and the Eisner Award-winning cartoonist Eric Shanower’s multivolume Trojan War series, Age of Bronze. Readers of all ages will benefit from Maria William’s beautiful and succinct picture book retelling of the Iliad and Odyssey. And here is a rubric designed by the instructional coach Nessa Slowinski and the English teacher Lauren Schewe, our colleagues at Glenbard West High School, to help students do comic annotations of the Odyssey, as modeled by Nick Sousanis’ Comics Studies class at San Francisco State University.
