The book experiments with formal properties of comics, using multiple panels to convey the different moments in time. Hundreds of thousa...nds of years become interwoven. A dinosaur from 100,000,000 BCE lumbers by, while a child is playing with a plastic toy that resembles the same dinosaur in the year 1999. Conversations appear to be happening between two people who are centuries apart. Someone asking, Anyone seen my car keys? can be answered by someone at a future archeology dig. Cycles of glaciers transform into marshes, then into forests, then into farmland. A city develops and grows into a suburban sprawl. Future climate changes cause the land to submerge, if only temporarily, for the long view reveals the transient nature of all things.

              A bold and original graphic novelization of The Odyssey that is both a powerful story for our time capturing its timeless lessons for returning veterans of Afghanistan and Iraq as well as a vivid new way into Homer's classic for modern readers. Jack Brennan is a Marine Corps serg...eant whose infantry squad has been cleared to return home from a grueling deployment to Afghanistan. A few years prior, Sergeant Brennan lost one of his closest friends a young combat veteran to suicide and has vowed to do everything in his power to keep his Marines from a similar fate. On their last night in-country, Brennan shares his version of The Odyssey to help prepare his squad for the transition back to the home front. By retelling Homer's epic about Odysseus' difficult journey home after the Trojan War, and weaving in the stories of contemporary Marines, The Odyssey of Sergeant Jack Brennan powerfully conveys the profound challenges today's veterans face upon returning from combat even as it tells the oldest war story of all time.
