6 out of 10

Toubis editions is one of the larger publishing companies in Greece when it comes to items aimed mostly to tourists/visitors. Among 3-4 other similar companies, Toubis offer a vast array of museum and archeological sites' guides, books about ancient Greek art and Mythology, bookmarks, postcards and so on.

The good thing is that those books are usually written by archeologists or academics and are good value for money. The bad thing is that some tongue in cheek editions -like this one- reproduce silly stereotypes along the decent stuff.

This is a very nice comic book for teens or adults who feel like reading something more light about Greek Mythology rather than a whole book.
Most of main myths are here and it's impressive the quantity of different stories that fit in a small-ish volume. A decent introduction to the subject for sure.

What I didn't like is the trite "bouzouki-souvlaki-retsina" '60s humor, which wouldn't apply if someone is transferred on antiquity anyway.

Now, let's see where/how this book will travel further away...

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

The Fantastic Voyage into Greek Mythology is now on a voyage itself

It left Delphi today, heading to Kilburn, Derbyshire, UK. And who knows where else later on...

I hope it'll meet many interesting people who'd read it, appreciate it, help it continue its travels and let us know...

Good Luck my book, Safe Travels!
