Gareth Hinds is the creator of critically-acclaimed graphic novel adaptations including Beowulf, Poe: Stories and Poems, and Macbeth. In this talk, Gareth Hinds discusses his approach to adapting works of classic literature into graphic novels, including his new book, Homer’s classic wartime epic The Iliad, and demonstrate his computer-based drawing techniques.

More than three thousand years ago, two armies faced each other in an epic battle that rewrote history and came to be known as the Trojan War. The Iliad, Homer’s legendary account of this nine-year ordeal, is considered the greatest war story of all time and one of the most important works of Western literature. This stunning graphic novel adaptation captures all the grim glory of Homer’s epic. Dynamic illustrations take readers directly to the plains of Troy, into the battle itself, and lay bare the complex emotions of the men, women, and gods whose struggles fueled the war and determined its outcome.
