Interviewed by WordPress!

School is nearly out, which means there’ll be comix coming soon, and the Kickstarter cards have arrived, so if you’ve ordered your pack(s) will be shortly in the mail. 

Things of beauty!

In the meantime, I got interviewed by WordPress! I talk about Classics comix, drawing for class, and anxiety: https://discover.wordpress.com/2016/07/06/greek-myth-comix/
You might enjoy it if you find teachers slightly awkwardly enthusing about their subject fun, or if you think I’m a guy.

Trojan War Playing Cards – NOW AVAILABLE!


These cards, designed by Jenks of Greek Myth Comix, are the follow-up to the incredibly popular ‘Deaths in the Iliad’ Infographic by the same author.

as a downloadable print-it-yourself deck and tuck box!

The four suits correspond to four groups of characters in the Trojan War, particularly Homer’s poem The Iliad: Argives (Greeks), Trojans, Gods, and Women. The face cards are illustrated with a colour representation of two facets of these main characters, while the number cards picture the character at a critical, recognisable moment in the text or the Trojan War story, in the same vivid line-drawing style as the acclaimed Greek Myth Comix.

These cards, designed with real play in mind, are ideal for playing Poker, Blackjack, and countless other regular card games. In the classroom, they are also perfect as flash cards for revision of these characters – or as a fine leaving present for your favourite student Classicists. Or, you can just play cards while simultaneously for acting out your AU Song of Achilles fantasies!

A perfect gift for any young scholar, classics fan or Iliad nerd!

Fighters in the Iliad

For a project involving Iliad characters and the Infographic of last year, I’ve made a (hopefully accurate) list of every fighter in the Iliad, Achaean and Trojan. I thought it might be interesting to post it here for download, and see what people do with it (It’s down there at the bottom).

If you use it for something, I’d really like for you to link back to this post, and/or Tweet @GreekMythComix  with a link to what you’ve done.

What can I do with it? Anything really. As an example, I made some little Wordclouds with the names of the Trojans and Achaeans, to see which names are most popular:

Achaean names GMC Trojan names GMC

You could also sort through to see all the different contingents. There are already some fab maps of the places where the Achaean side come from, and a project mapping the Catalogue of Ships.

Whatever you do, please link back!b

Note: though I normally use the Hammond for my work, I have used the Fagles here as I left my Hammond at school and had a lovely Fagles from an old student on my shelf. Thus, more poetic in quotation and Latinate in name.
