I thought the writers did a good job condensing the important parts, and used their medium to their advantage. I really can't with Shanower, and after this I'm done with his work. A Thousand Ships is a gripping presentation perfectly suited to a modern readership and brings this age-old tale to a whole new generation of readers. We don't even get to see her face until Paris reveals her to his fellow Trojans, thus removing her own agency or identity beyond her beauty. This is a graphic novel retelling the story of the Trojan War. Interesting, I guess, but I'm never a huge fan of uncolored graphic novels and I also question the decision to not show magic or gods on-page but still have they drive the story like in the original myths. The garments worn by the characters, the landscapes and the domestic scenes make this work a piece of marvel.
Comparisons to Art Spiegelman's Maus 1991 spring immediately to mind. The characters' faces were so expressive and nuanced, and I loved that the artists actually made them look ethnic - I can't tell you how irritating it is to see illustrations of the Greeks as blonde, pasty white people. Стоимость международной доставки и импортные сборы частично уплачены компании Pitney Bowes Inc. From far and wide the ancient kings of Greece bring their ships to join the massive force to pledge their allegiance to High King Agamemnon. Daring heroes, breathtaking women, betrayals, love and death--the most spectacular war story ever told: The Trojan War.
Dari mana sebenarnya kisah Perang Troy berasal. Like I said, some might enjoy the more 'authentic' re-telling that removes any divine presence. Here, once more, shines the glory of Troy. Dalam kesasteraan kuno Yunani, kisah ini kerap muncul karena diangap merupakan salah satu peristiwa penting dalam mitologi Yunani. I I skimmed the last third of this because I was losing interest.
While Helen might not be an obvious character to make fascinating, Clytemnestra comes ready-made in Classical tragedy such as Aeschylus' and Euripides' Elektra as fascinating. In just under 200 pages, Shanower reaches the point where the assembled Greeks cast off for Troy. Transitions are often unmarked, making it possible to read through several panels before realizing that there has been an important shift in time and place. It's very detailed--clearly a lot of research went into this. If you have even the slightest memory of the Greek epics from high school or college or just an unhealthy appetite for history you'll recognize a lot of players and scenes here.
Age of Bronze will be included in a major international exhibition travelling to three German museums in 2002. Troy is full of amazing characters and events but only enough is invested on them to keep the story moving. It could be very subtle, especially since the drawings indicate shadows by lines , but it would add a little more depth to the pictures, I think. Perang Troy adalah penyerbuan terhadap kota Troya yang terletak di Asia Kecil, oleh tentara Achaean Yunani Mycenaean , yang terjadi setelah Paris menculik Helena dari suaminya Menelaus, raja Sparta. Gone are the larger than life, impossibly distant heroes and heroines.
Not really no, not unless you enjoyed the 2004 movie Troy. I find that it makes the reading so much more authentic, if I can get at least close to pronouncing names and places accurately. Paris mengusulkan diri untuk pergi ke Salamis untuk membawa Hesion pulang ke Troy. Tanpa diduga, walau salah seorang anak Raja Priam mengingatkan kembali akan ramalan bahwa Paris akan membawa bencana bagi Troy, Paris diterima kembali ke lingkungan istana dan menjadi bagian dari keluarga kerajaan. Otherwise I really enjoyed reading this book, the story, the pictures and the characters are intriguing and exciting. Shading, texture, and Shanower's use of a single image across several panels give depth to the black-and-white cartoon artwork that carries the story.
There were a few extremely interesting and exciting chapters, but also a few boring ones. He's apparently doing this as a comic book series this is the first nine issues compiled and I eagerly await the next batch. Now, I am excited that they are coming back and being published in color. I often refer back to this series while working on my own comics, and reading and re-reading these books is a delight. So begins the Trojan War. His art is Manga style without the colors, relaying on just black and white.
Buku ini memuat lebih dari seratus bibiliografi baik untuk alur cerita, tokoh-tokoh, dan gambaran umum mengenai peristiwa yang terjadi. There's no sense of the religious world these characters inhabit. As with Helen, it's difficult to see what Oenone sees in Paris, or Deidamia in Achilles. Eric Shanower With the appearance of online sites offering you all types of media files, including movies, music, and books, it has become significantly easier to get hold of everything you may need. It's not an original idea to exclude the gods from the Trojan War, but it is almost invariably a bad one, especially as Achilles' mother is a god, and vital to the plot. And it is excellent, through and through.
I don't know much about how scholars have created the 'authentic' telling of this story, but the author appeals to the authority of scholars for the creation of this book. This is a worthy and basically well-executed project, and I'm bumping it up to a third star. The book is fine, it's not spectacular, but as a faithful retelling, it's adequate. Shanower illustrates every page with a concern for portraying real people rather than idealized portraits. I also didn't care how much of the book dealt in visions and prophecy when the gods have been removed from the story. Put simply, I do not think that anything is gained by debating whether or not the Trojan War is based on an historical event, as in the format in which the story comes down to us that historical event is completely unrecoverable.
