ODY-C, modeled after Homer's Odyssey, is a psychedelic, gender-broke
science-fiction epic that tells the story of three legendary warrior-queens
returning home after a centuries-long battle. Odyssia, of fair Ithicaa,
encounters everything that can get in her way and slow her homecoming -
and realizes with dawning horror that maybe she doesn't want to return. Queen
Ene, she who rules the universe, reclaims her husband He of Troiia only to find
herself trapped in a place where even the Goddesses cannot see - a secret
world of men gone mad. And as for Queen Gamem, she has a date with her lovelorn
wife and a warm bath of her own blood...

Told in verse with a visual
sensibility that redefines the very possibilities of the comics medium, this
gloriously oversized hardcover collects issues #1-12 plus exclusive bonus
materials including essays by classicist Dani Colman, teaching aids, and a
massive ten-page fold-out only available in the sold-out first
issue.

"Fraction and Ward are doing wildly imaginative work combining
fantastic Greek mythology with futuristic science fiction, and the book has a
visual sensibility unlike anything else on the stands." -- A.V. Club
