Rediscover Eric Shanower's Eisner-Award-winning comics adaptation of the story of the Trojan War - now in full color, thanks to colorist John Dallaire, and fully annotated with a hyperlinked reader's guide by Thomas Beasley.

The continuing graphic novel series presents the complete story of the world-famous War at Troy, freshly retold for the 21st century. All the drama of the ancient and thrilling tradition unfolds before your eyes, with all the familiar people and events of the Trojan War.

Readers can enjoy Age of Bronze "Seen" in monthly installments that correspond to the floppy comic episodes in which Age of Bronze was originally released.

While the comic can be viewed at full-screen size within the app, it can also be viewed alongside Beasley's brand new page-by-page Readers’ Guide content, using Shanower's comic as a teaching tool for the history, myth and literature surrounding the Trojan War. The Guide also employs an in-app discussion feature that allows readers to get direct feedback on questions related to both the comic and the history of the area.

In addition, readers can access a map of the Bronze Age Aegean and a “dramatis personae” feature that lists all of the characters as they are presented in the comic to keeping track of this epic story and all it’s people and events.

This release offers more than just a simple repurposing of printed material and shows that a very good comic, like this
one, should be a doorway for deeper learning.
