An interesting modern take on the story of Theseus that, sadly, has little to do with the original tale.
A well-made graphic novel set in Classical Athens, following the adventures of the fictional Leander.
The graphic novel Three offers an interesting, well-researched look at life as a helot in ancient Laconia.
A major contribution to the field of Greek mythology, this book comes heartily recommended.
An enjoyable Italian movie about Perseus, that has almost nothing to do with the original stories.
A sequel that is better in almost every way to the original, 2010’s remake of Clash of the Titans, even if it has little to do with the original ancient Greek story of the hero Perseus.
A remake of an awful movie that had nowhere to go but up. The end result is a bit of a mess, but largely entertaining anyway.
