    Who knew there was a graphic novel of Xenephon's Anabasis? I did not. Probably not the best artwork in the world, but it was adequate. It began kind of confusingly and boringly, but I definitely found myself caught up in the tale. I don't know if that's because I taught Xenephon last year and therefore am emotionally connected to the story, but ah well. It's definitely a story I will pass on to one or more of my students. Glad to have stumbled upon this random graphic novel re-telling of the Ana Who knew there was a graphic novel of Xenephon's Anabasis? I did not.

    An attempt at capturing history via graphic novels is a valiant one but non compelling at best. The illustrations are done well but the storyline doesn't invoke emotions you'd expect knowing the odds against which these ten thousand survive. I didn't feel for any of the protagonists falling. Felt like an Amar Chitra Katha whose job is to tell you the facts without getting too engrossed into the emotions behind those facts. A light commute read at best or maybe beter suited for kids who you want An attempt at capturing history via graphic novels is a valiant one but non compelling at best.

    Historical comic book, interesting from that perspective, panels generally well crafted. Overall, not very compelling, but I could see this as a great tool to get boys into reading, or interested in history.

    A primorosa aquarela de Lalit Kumar Singh não consegue salvar a ausência de roteiro e o argumento fraco da obra, bastante confusa e com texto muito fraco, além de apresentar algumas incoerências históricas.

    This was a great historical fiction done in a graphic format. These kinds of works are needed to generate interest in those who hate reading or read at a lower level. I enjoyed the story line as well as the great illustrations. I would highly recommend this book.
