Oi Mythoi Tou Aisopou Se Komiks, Volume 4
Nine fables rendered well in comics. This volume is unusual for the settings it gives traditional fables: the astronomer works in a space-station; both The Miser and The Three Sons are also put into a future space-age; the lion in love works for the circus; the fox without a tail seems to live in a junkyard. The cover illustrations seem to be various out-takes from Astronomer. In the fable, the astronomer walks over a cat, bumps into a lamppost, and sees stars. The country mouse is apparently a grandpa. The last page presents a nice lion-man sculpture. The sound effects are again delightful: whispering (16) is ???? and dogs' barking (21) is gav, gav. Included: The Astronomer, The Peacock and the Jackdaw, TMCM, The Hen and the Snake's Eggs, The Lion in Love, The Goat and the Wolf, The Miser, The Father and His Three Sons, and FWT. Fun!
