Review
(The following is a combined review for Isis & Osiris: To the Ends of the Earth: An Egyptian Myth; King Arthur: Excalibur Unsheathed: An English Legend; Thor & Loki: In the Land of Giants: A Norse Myth; and Hercules: The Twelve Labors: A Greek Myth) Gr 3-8 –These titles attempt, with varying success, to bring classic tales alive. Each one includes dialogue with a contemporary tone, which stretches the stories out. However, some of Hercules’s labors get fairly short shrift in order to fit them all into this format. Although the art varies stylistically from book to book, it all shares the same basic palette and the general look of an American comic. Each volume has two overlapping notes, one on sources before the table of contents and the other, titled “Creating…,” at the end. The further-reading lists are brief and include, variously, Bulfinch’s Mythology for Thor and Hercules as well as the DVD of The Mummy starring Boris Karloff for Isis . Overall, Hercules and Isis are more pleasing updates than King Arthur or Thor but all convey the basic elements of the myths in a format that is increasingly popular. Keep in mind Marcia Williams’s King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table (Candlewick, 1996; o.p.) as an alternative and more complete comic-book take on the Arthurian cycle and the recently re-released D’Aulaires’ Book of Norse Myths (New York Review of Books, 2005) as an alternative to Thor .–Eric Norton, McMillan Memorial Library, Wisconsin Rapids, WI --Eric Norton (Reviewed November 1, 2006) (School Library Journal, vol 52, issue 11, p167)
