    Probably more like 2.5 Stars. I love Greek mythology. I loved the Odyssey the first few times I read it. The Iliad and every subsequent rendition of the Trojan War held my attention. Now we have a Greek Odyssey in space. I'm not sure what to do with this. First issues are difficu...

    My mind is blown. THIS IS AMAZING!! Seriously, I don't know how to not come off as a squeeing fangirl right now, but fuck it. I knew comics had the potential to be high art, social commentary, and killer storytelling, all wrapped into one, and only recently has this been achieved f...

    I really enjoyed this story because I loved the idea of an all female cast of greek gods. Odyssia is very adaptable and clever which makes her a great captain and leader. Her crew trusts her and most of them listen to what she says. The art is very colourful and elaborate but sometimes...

    I really wanted to love this, and I really thought I would - but I just didn't. Matt Fraction is quickly becoming one of my favourite comic writers; time and time again he impresses me. But after finishing this one I am left feeling pretty underwhelmed. The art is phenomenal and the...

    What the heck did I just read? I feel so?dumb. For those of you who?ve read the Iliad and the Odyssey, did this all make sense? I felt like I was trying to read an onion using a Swahili-English dictionary and a fig. Space, sci-fi, and fantasy in general intimidated me for the l...

    I'm intrigued. Review tomorrow. ...

    Sooooo prettttty. From Flavorwire's summer comics roundup: Homer?s Odyssey has been done a million times in a million different mediums, yet Fraction and Ward?s take manages to come off as entirely original. It certainly helps that it?s now a gender-bent (Odyssia!), futuristic...

    For those of you tl;dr people - basically Ody-C is floating in space between author's womb fetish and vision of lesbian love from time to time exploding with fears of non-feminist man about women in power. For those of you who want the details, hmmm, where do i start... Let me do t...

    Sci-fi Odyssey reinterpretation as it should be done: in space with spaceships, overwhelming majority of women, grandiloquent narrative, lesbianism, amazing artwork, characters with non-binary bodies, epic adventures ? The images of the pages displayed on the screen do not honor h...

    I was intrigued by the concept of a gender-swapped Odyssey, but I was pretty disappointed with this. What happens when men retell the story starring all women? Not much for women, alas. Yeah, the colors are pretty, but the vagina dentata aesthetic and sentiment is too much for me. And ...

    I had high hopes this would blow me away, but it was really confusing. The art style wasn't what I was expecting, but I grew to really enjoy it. The perspective was interesting... but the reading style just took a while to get into. I didn't even know who Odyssia was until near the end...

    I really wanted to love this comic. A badass, sci-fi, gender-bent retelling of the Odyssey sounded right up my alley. Unfortunately, the story felt cluttered and incoherent. The illustration, while absolutely beautiful, made this comic difficult to follow. The rare reader who does not ...

    Solid introduction to a great series, the artwork is bright and unique and the storytelling is entrancing ...

    Experimentalist in nature, Fraction and Ward are bold in their use of unorthodox, over-the-top art and prose. An all-femme version of Homer's Odyssey, recast in space (but the gods just as vicious). The concept is excellent, but the plotting a bit off. It's occasionally hard to follow,...

    I like the idea of ODY-C, a retelling of Odysseus, and other Trojan War heroes' journeys home after the war, that is gender-bent, but at the same time, I can definitely see how it's off-putting as just "too weird," or "trying too hard." I can also foresee ODC-C winning all sorts of awa...

    This is trippy as all fuck. An intergalactic retelling of the Odyssey with mostly female characters is the craziest, most interesting project I've ever heard and all respect to everyone who had the bravery and talent to execute this. I definitely feel like I got all the bang for the bu...

    I'm a sucker for Greek mythology so when I heard about a comic based on The Odyssey I had to try it. Then I heard most of the characters were genderbent from the original epic and that got me even more excited about it. Ody-C is a little hard to read with the kind of language it us...

    Hearing about a genderbent retelling of Odyssey, one of my favourite Greek stories of all time, you could bet your sweet ass I'd find myself a copy and be sifting through the pages with excite. ODY-C is beautiful. The artwork is an explosion of colour and a plethora of electri...

    I'm not at all a comics reader, but The Odyssey is one of my all-time favorite stories and I adore Greek Mythology. As such, when I heard there was a genderbent retelling set in space, I was all in from the start. The art is beautiful, and it's a plus for me that the story is writte...

    The art's intriguing, different and definitely bright and colourful. Without a doubt it was the highlight of the volume but I'm not sure if it's quite 'my' style. The story ebbed and flowed in terms of making sense. There were a lot of times where I had to re-read bits because it d...

    This is amazing! It's actually written in dactylic hexameter which is so impressive to be able to do in English. It feels so authentic to the Odyssey, even though all the genders are reversed, it's set in space and the people are bizarre colors. Not only are the genders reversed, but t...

    ODY-C, a sci-fi retelling of Homer?s Odyssey, is colorful and expressive, but lacks a coherent narrative in its disjointed, flowery prose. In an interesting twist, the characters of the Odyssey have undergone sex changes, and the boat has been replaced by a ship powered by group h...

    An extremely original scince fiction take on Greek Mythology. Almost every gender role is reversed making this really something special and showing Fraction has mad skills with female characters. The art was downright beautiful and the story had me on the edge of my seat. It may only b...

    Feminist perspective: Incredible artwork. The story is a bit confusing but once you get a little further into the novel you adjust to the style-sort of like how they teach you to read Shakespeare in school. The women aren't drawn in a uniform style, and it's a realistic representation ...

    First of all, this is a gorgeous comic and it's really fun to just scan through it and look at the pages, and the overall great use of panels. The colors are really garish and expressive - and so create cool characters and worlds. However this was a really hard read for me. The way it...

    It's based off of the Odyssey but with women instead of men, and it's set in space. There was a kind of interesting twist but it wasn't really explored. Overall, the story sticks pretty closely to the original odyssey. The art was really good and definitely very colorful and spacey. Ho...

    Mind-blowing, eye-popping artwork. (Think Jodorowsky's Dune adaptation, if you've ever managed to see some of the planned artwork, but more psychedelic.) Story-wise Fraction has done an unbelievable update to the story of the Odyssey - not just gender-swapped but catapulted millenni...

    The art's intriguing, different and definitely bright and colourful. Without a doubt it was the highlight of the volume but I'm not sure if it's quite 'my' style. The story ebbed and flowed in terms of making sense. There were a lot of times where I had to re-read bits because it d...

    This is amazing! It's actually written in dactylic hexameter which is so impressive to be able to do in English. It feels so authentic to the Odyssey, even though all the genders are reversed, it's set in space and the people are bizarre colors. Not only are the genders reversed, but t...

    My mind is blown. THIS IS AMAZING!! Seriously, I don't know how to not come off as a squeeing fangirl right now, but fuck it. I knew comics had the potential to be high art, social commentary, and killer storytelling, all wrapped into one, and only recently has this been achieved f...

    I really enjoyed this story because I loved the idea of an all female cast of greek gods. Odyssia is very adaptable and clever which makes her a great captain and leader. Her crew trusts her and most of them listen to what she says. The art is very colourful and elaborate but sometimes...

    What the heck did I just read? I feel so?dumb. For those of you who?ve read the Iliad and the Odyssey, did this all make sense? I felt like I was trying to read an onion using a Swahili-English dictionary and a fig. Space, sci-fi, and fantasy in general intimidated me for the l...

    I had high hopes this would blow me away, but it was really confusing. The art style wasn't what I was expecting, but I grew to really enjoy it. The perspective was interesting... but the reading style just took a while to get into. I didn't even know who Odyssia was until near the end...

    First of all, this is a gorgeous comic and it's really fun to just scan through it and look at the pages, and the overall great use of panels. The colors are really garish and expressive - and so create cool characters and worlds. However this was a really hard read for me. The way it...

    It's based off of the Odyssey but with women instead of men, and it's set in space. There was a kind of interesting twist but it wasn't really explored. Overall, the story sticks pretty closely to the original odyssey. The art was really good and definitely very colorful and spacey. Ho...

    Mind-blowing, eye-popping artwork. (Think Jodorowsky's Dune adaptation, if you've ever managed to see some of the planned artwork, but more psychedelic.) Story-wise Fraction has done an unbelievable update to the story of the Odyssey - not just gender-swapped but catapulted millenni...

    I MUST BASK IN THE GLORY OF THIS COMIC BOOK. I MUST REREAD THIS COMIC BOOK SO THAT I CAN FULLY UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING THAT WAS WRITTEN. I MUST OGLE THE ORGASMIC ART. I MUST PROCLAIM THAT DESPITE THE FACT THAT MUCH WAS NOT UNDERSTOOD AND TIME WILL REVEAL ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS THAT TH...

    ODY-C #1 is a retelling of Homer's Odyssey set in space. What interested us most about this graphic novel was that most of the characters were genderbent from the original Odyssey. Fraction's story was great and Ward's illustrations were unique. Ward used a lot of vibrant colors and bo...

    Mind-blowing, eye-popping artwork. (Think Jodorowsky's Dune adaptation, if you've ever managed to see some of the planned artwork, but more psychedelic.) Story-wise Fraction has done an unbelievable update to the story of the Odyssey - not just gender-swapped but catapulted millenni...

    I MUST BASK IN THE GLORY OF THIS COMIC BOOK. I MUST REREAD THIS COMIC BOOK SO THAT I CAN FULLY UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING THAT WAS WRITTEN. I MUST OGLE THE ORGASMIC ART. I MUST PROCLAIM THAT DESPITE THE FACT THAT MUCH WAS NOT UNDERSTOOD AND TIME WILL REVEAL ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS THAT TH...

    ODY-C #1 is a retelling of Homer's Odyssey set in space. What interested us most about this graphic novel was that most of the characters were genderbent from the original Odyssey. Fraction's story was great and Ward's illustrations were unique. Ward used a lot of vibrant colors and bo...

    First I must say, the art is completely stunning. I feel I ought to go back through this issue and spend like an hour meditating on each page. I am not sold on the story yet. I've never had much of a brain for Greek epics, I get lost by the details and don't click with the characters. ...

    Probably more like 2.5 Stars. I love Greek mythology. I loved the Odyssey the first few times I read it. The Iliad and every subsequent rendition of the Trojan War held my attention. Now we have a Greek Odyssey in space. I'm not sure what to do with this. First issues are difficu...

    My mind is blown. THIS IS AMAZING!! Seriously, I don't know how to not come off as a squeeing fangirl right now, but fuck it. I knew comics had the potential to be high art, social commentary, and killer storytelling, all wrapped into one, and only recently has this been achieved f...

    I really enjoyed this story because I loved the idea of an all female cast of greek gods. Odyssia is very adaptable and clever which makes her a great captain and leader. Her crew trusts her and most of them listen to what she says. The art is very colourful and elaborate but sometimes...

    I really wanted to love this, and I really thought I would - but I just didn't. Matt Fraction is quickly becoming one of my favourite comic writers; time and time again he impresses me. But after finishing this one I am left feeling pretty underwhelmed. The art is phenomenal and the...

    What the heck did I just read? I feel so?dumb. For those of you who?ve read the Iliad and the Odyssey, did this all make sense? I felt like I was trying to read an onion using a Swahili-English dictionary and a fig. Space, sci-fi, and fantasy in general intimidated me for the l...

    I'm intrigued. Review tomorrow. ...

    Sooooo prettttty. From Flavorwire's summer comics roundup: Homer?s Odyssey has been done a million times in a million different mediums, yet Fraction and Ward?s take manages to come off as entirely original. It certainly helps that it?s now a gender-bent (Odyssia!), futuristic...

    For those of you tl;dr people - basically Ody-C is floating in space between author's womb fetish and vision of lesbian love from time to time exploding with fears of non-feminist man about women in power. For those of you who want the details, hmmm, where do i start... Let me do t...

    Sci-fi Odyssey reinterpretation as it should be done: in space with spaceships, overwhelming majority of women, grandiloquent narrative, lesbianism, amazing artwork, characters with non-binary bodies, epic adventures ? The images of the pages displayed on the screen do not honor h...

    I was intrigued by the concept of a gender-swapped Odyssey, but I was pretty disappointed with this. What happens when men retell the story starring all women? Not much for women, alas. Yeah, the colors are pretty, but the vagina dentata aesthetic and sentiment is too much for me. And ...

    I had high hopes this would blow me away, but it was really confusing. The art style wasn't what I was expecting, but I grew to really enjoy it. The perspective was interesting... but the reading style just took a while to get into. I didn't even know who Odyssia was until near the end...

    I really wanted to love this comic. A badass, sci-fi, gender-bent retelling of the Odyssey sounded right up my alley. Unfortunately, the story felt cluttered and incoherent. The illustration, while absolutely beautiful, made this comic difficult to follow. The rare reader who does not ...

    Solid introduction to a great series, the artwork is bright and unique and the storytelling is entrancing ...

    Experimentalist in nature, Fraction and Ward are bold in their use of unorthodox, over-the-top art and prose. An all-femme version of Homer's Odyssey, recast in space (but the gods just as vicious). The concept is excellent, but the plotting a bit off. It's occasionally hard to follow,...

    I like the idea of ODY-C, a retelling of Odysseus, and other Trojan War heroes' journeys home after the war, that is gender-bent, but at the same time, I can definitely see how it's off-putting as just "too weird," or "trying too hard." I can also foresee ODC-C winning all sorts of awa...

    This is trippy as all fuck. An intergalactic retelling of the Odyssey with mostly female characters is the craziest, most interesting project I've ever heard and all respect to everyone who had the bravery and talent to execute this. I definitely feel like I got all the bang for the bu...

    I'm a sucker for Greek mythology so when I heard about a comic based on The Odyssey I had to try it. Then I heard most of the characters were genderbent from the original epic and that got me even more excited about it. Ody-C is a little hard to read with the kind of language it us...

    Hearing about a genderbent retelling of Odyssey, one of my favourite Greek stories of all time, you could bet your sweet ass I'd find myself a copy and be sifting through the pages with excite. ODY-C is beautiful. The artwork is an explosion of colour and a plethora of electri...

    An extremely original scince fiction take on Greek Mythology. Almost every gender role is reversed making this really something special and showing Fraction has mad skills with female characters. The art was downright beautiful and the story had me on the edge of my seat. It may only b...

    I really wanted to love this, and I really thought I would - but I just didn't. Matt Fraction is quickly becoming one of my favourite comic writers; time and time again he impresses me. But after finishing this one I am left feeling pretty underwhelmed. The art is phenomenal and the...

    What the heck did I just read? I feel so?dumb. For those of you who?ve read the Iliad and the Odyssey, did this all make sense? I felt like I was trying to read an onion using a Swahili-English dictionary and a fig. Space, sci-fi, and fantasy in general intimidated me for the l...

    Sooooo prettttty. From Flavorwire's summer comics roundup: Homer?s Odyssey has been done a million times in a million different mediums, yet Fraction and Ward?s take manages to come off as entirely original. It certainly helps that it?s now a gender-bent (Odyssia!), futuristic...

    For those of you tl;dr people - basically Ody-C is floating in space between author's womb fetish and vision of lesbian love from time to time exploding with fears of non-feminist man about women in power. For those of you who want the details, hmmm, where do i start... Let me do t...

    Sci-fi Odyssey reinterpretation as it should be done: in space with spaceships, overwhelming majority of women, grandiloquent narrative, lesbianism, amazing artwork, characters with non-binary bodies, epic adventures ? The images of the pages displayed on the screen do not honor h...

    I was intrigued by the concept of a gender-swapped Odyssey, but I was pretty disappointed with this. What happens when men retell the story starring all women? Not much for women, alas. Yeah, the colors are pretty, but the vagina dentata aesthetic and sentiment is too much for me. And ...

    I had high hopes this would blow me away, but it was really confusing. The art style wasn't what I was expecting, but I grew to really enjoy it. The perspective was interesting... but the reading style just took a while to get into. I didn't even know who Odyssia was until near the end...

    I really wanted to love this comic. A badass, sci-fi, gender-bent retelling of the Odyssey sounded right up my alley. Unfortunately, the story felt cluttered and incoherent. The illustration, while absolutely beautiful, made this comic difficult to follow. The rare reader who does not ...

    Solid introduction to a great series, the artwork is bright and unique and the storytelling is entrancing ...

    Experimentalist in nature, Fraction and Ward are bold in their use of unorthodox, over-the-top art and prose. An all-femme version of Homer's Odyssey, recast in space (but the gods just as vicious). The concept is excellent, but the plotting a bit off. It's occasionally hard to follow,...

    I like the idea of ODY-C, a retelling of Odysseus, and other Trojan War heroes' journeys home after the war, that is gender-bent, but at the same time, I can definitely see how it's off-putting as just "too weird," or "trying too hard." I can also foresee ODC-C winning all sorts of awa...

    This is trippy as all fuck. An intergalactic retelling of the Odyssey with mostly female characters is the craziest, most interesting project I've ever heard and all respect to everyone who had the bravery and talent to execute this. I definitely feel like I got all the bang for the bu...

    I'm a sucker for Greek mythology so when I heard about a comic based on The Odyssey I had to try it. Then I heard most of the characters were genderbent from the original epic and that got me even more excited about it. Ody-C is a little hard to read with the kind of language it us...

    Hearing about a genderbent retelling of Odyssey, one of my favourite Greek stories of all time, you could bet your sweet ass I'd find myself a copy and be sifting through the pages with excite. ODY-C is beautiful. The artwork is an explosion of colour and a plethora of electri...

    I'm not at all a comics reader, but The Odyssey is one of my all-time favorite stories and I adore Greek Mythology. As such, when I heard there was a genderbent retelling set in space, I was all in from the start. The art is beautiful, and it's a plus for me that the story is writte...

    The art's intriguing, different and definitely bright and colourful. Without a doubt it was the highlight of the volume but I'm not sure if it's quite 'my' style. The story ebbed and flowed in terms of making sense. There were a lot of times where I had to re-read bits because it d...

    This is amazing! It's actually written in dactylic hexameter which is so impressive to be able to do in English. It feels so authentic to the Odyssey, even though all the genders are reversed, it's set in space and the people are bizarre colors. Not only are the genders reversed, but t...

    ODY-C, a sci-fi retelling of Homer?s Odyssey, is colorful and expressive, but lacks a coherent narrative in its disjointed, flowery prose. In an interesting twist, the characters of the Odyssey have undergone sex changes, and the boat has been replaced by a ship powered by group h...

    An extremely original scince fiction take on Greek Mythology. Almost every gender role is reversed making this really something special and showing Fraction has mad skills with female characters. The art was downright beautiful and the story had me on the edge of my seat. It may only b...

    Feminist perspective: Incredible artwork. The story is a bit confusing but once you get a little further into the novel you adjust to the style-sort of like how they teach you to read Shakespeare in school. The women aren't drawn in a uniform style, and it's a realistic representation ...

    First of all, this is a gorgeous comic and it's really fun to just scan through it and look at the pages, and the overall great use of panels. The colors are really garish and expressive - and so create cool characters and worlds. However this was a really hard read for me. The way it...

    It's based off of the Odyssey but with women instead of men, and it's set in space. There was a kind of interesting twist but it wasn't really explored. Overall, the story sticks pretty closely to the original odyssey. The art was really good and definitely very colorful and spacey. Ho...
