Mythographers we Love: Greek Myth Comix

This is one of the educational ones. Greek Myth Comix has Greek mythology in stick-figure format, probably influenced by XKCD.

These can be used to teach kids of all ages about certain mythological figures or ancient Greek concepts, like Kudos or the Homeric Hero.

I especially like the Moirai and the Muses poster, I printed these out and have them on my board for reference.

Make sure you visit their store for neat merchandise or large posters.

Mythographers We Love: Eros and Psyche Project

There’s a very nice comic retelling of the Eros and Psyche myth, by two Greek girls, Myrto Gkiouli and Eirini Skoura.

It was a kickstarted project that got a lot of attention from fans. And it was well deserved, the design is lovely and very emotive.

You can find them on their page on Facebook, for orders etc.

Here’s a juicy taste of the story:

“A light breeze blew in from the window and put out the lamp’s flame, plunging the room in darkness. Using her surprise to his advantage, Eros seized the opportunity and slipped into bed next to her. Her eyes widened in shock; someone was in her bed. That was it, then; time to meet her mysterious husband. She was petrified; from fear or anticipation, she didn’t know.”

There’s a limited time promotion running for each ebook order with an added collection of short stories.

Here it is in their own words:

It’s been 2 years since the launch of our campaign, so, in order to celebrate the occasion, starting today, and for the following month, anyone who buys the e-book (at a special price too!), will be getting a bonus pdf with a collection of short stories/outtakes revolving around the myth! (make sure you read the introduction of that thing as well, it’s fun!)

Stephen Fry’s Long Awaited Mythos Is Finally Here

We have no affiliation with either Mr. Fry or the publisher.

I simply waited for this retelling for so long. If you can’t remember where you know Stephen Fry from, it’s from the Harry Potter audiobooks. Or the dozen shows on BBC.

Intelligent, witty, provocative, I simply love most of his work. And with this book, he definitely takes the scepter of Mythographer of the Year.

What? What about Neil Gaiman and his Norse Mythology? Who fucking cares?

And the Mythos book is out and it only costs

$30 FUCKING DOLLARS with European taxes.

Thank you, Penguin publishing house. Screw you for being utterly clueless about this century.

I’ll buy it, but simply because I’m a fan of Mr. Fry.

Let’s listen to a Greek myth in 60 seconds cause I’m angry now:

There’s something different about this omnibus. We are constantly updating it with all the other books in the God Complex Universe. That’s correct, the omnibus is getting bigger all the time, updated with our new stories. There is a delay in the update (a few months). The price keeps going up, but everyone who purchased it early will keep getting the new files. If you haven’t already, turn on your DLC settings on Amazon so that the file is always up to date. On other retailers, just delete the file and redownload. If you happen to encounter any difficulty at all, just send us an email at mythographystudios@gmail.com and we’ll sort it out.

That’s why this book is important, because it represents the whole body of work. But it also rewards dedicated fans like you, while being an experiment at the same time (We haven’t heard of any other publisher doing it).

Does this evoke the right feel for you? Please comment on this post, we want to hear from you.

Watch the book trailer of “How to 3D print a god”

The gods are back in town. Skyscrapers pop out of nowhere all around Athens. Corporations rename themselves as Greek gods. It all started with the Greek crisis of 2009 and it will forever change the world as we know it. Some say that CEO’s have gone mad. Others, that they know damn well what they are doing. That there is something solid amongst the myth. In the day of inter-connectivity and social media admiration, can the ancient myths come back to life?

The gods are back in town and they carry a god complex.

A shout-out to theoi.com because they are worth it

For some things you have wikipedia, but for other a well-maintained directory is the only thing on the top.

It is a lot to bear.
It is a lot to bear.

Theoi.com is a site that not only catalogs the ancient Greek myths, but also refers to the passages where everything is mentioned, gives you a latin pronunciation, a Greek transliteration of the name and a ton more info. It is an amazing starting point to do your own research.

Their description:

The Theoi Project, a site exploring Greek mythology and the gods in classical literature and art. The aim of the project is to provide a comprehensive, free reference guide to the gods (theoi), spirits (daimones), fabulous creatures (theres) and heroes of ancient Greek mythology and religion.

Amazing work, support them on their site.
