Homer" is the name given to the author or authors of the ancient Greek epic poems "Iliad" and "Odyssey", and could represent a single man who lived sometime between 800 and 900 . or it could represent a group of poets who collaborated on these major works. He illustrated over 25 Classics and stood out for his use of theatrical dramatics, which is probably why he illustrated three of the five Shakespeare Classics.

Homer’s Iliad is usually thought of as the first work of European literature, and many would say, the greatest. It tells part of the saga of the city of Troy and the war that took place there. In fact the Iliad takes its name from Ilios, an ancient Greek word for Troy, situated in what is Turkey today. This story had a central place in Greek mythology. The poem deals with a very short period in the tenth year of the Trojan war. This sometimes surprises modern readers who expect the whole story of Troy (as, for instance, in Wolfgang Petersen’s 2004 film Troy).

In 1941, Albert E. Kanter introduced Classic Comics, later renamed Classics Illustrated. Whether his idea represented a watering down of the classics, as some critics claimed, it was an amazingly popular move. Each of the 169 comics in this series were reprinted numerous times, with 23rd printings being relatively common. Their popularity even extended to schools, where the colorful, well-written adaptations must have seemed a welcome alternative to reading lengthy.

Classics Illustrated is an American comic book/magazine series featuring adaptations of literary classics such as Les Miserables, Moby Dick, Hamlet, and The Iliad. Created by Albert Kanter, the series began publication in 1941 and finished its first run in 1971, producing 169 issues. Following the series' demise, various companies reprinted its titles. Since then, the Classics Illustrated brand has been used to create new comic book adaptations.

This is a deluxe reprint of the vintage classic comic book I had as a small boy in the 1960's. They did add a new cover to spice it up I guess. Same Blume artwork inside. Superior version to anything Hollywood has done-- shows how even comic books are better than movies. I'd like to see them do more of these Classics Illustrated comics.
good service, would use them again
