I just found some graphic novels of various Ancient Greek stories by Magda van Tilburg. This link is to a section from Herodotus (History Book II.121) called "the smart thief": https://booxalive.nl/de-slimme-dief/. It looks like there are four Greek stories available for free to read!

Looks fun, but be aware of (at least) the Ares and Aphrodite story, which is not exactly PG. ;)

Duly noted. Thanks for the heads up! The Herodotus story is a great read.

Hi dear Nathaniel and Jason,

Thank you so much for mentioning my lifetime work, the classic graphic novels. May I add that with the four Greek titles I also provide for the English translations aside? Currently, I am working on the tragedy Alkestis by Euripides. Each new page I publish right away on my non-profit story site.

And I wonder... in these digital times, the story of Ares and Aphrodite hardly cannot be categorized as PG? :lol:

Here a sample of the episode of Kirke from the Odyssey by Homer: https://booxalive.nl/homerus/

Needless to say, that was the first one I read :-)
