Age of Bronze "Seen"

Page One of Age of Bronze "Seen"
The world has made many technological advances since the Bronze Age. Now the ancient story of the Trojan War is being published in the latest technological format - an an app for iPad. The first issue of Age of Bronze "Seen," Eric Shanower's award-winning retelling of the complete story of the Trojan War in comics, goes on sale today for only 99 cents in the iTunes store.

The enhanced digital app includes such new features as a Reader's Guide by Thomas Beasley, Yale Classics scholar, that details the literary sources and archaeological references for each page of the story; a forum for discussion where readers can post their reactions and questions; maps; a list of characters; and for the first time Age of Bronze will be seen in full color by John Dallaire who worked closely with Shanower on the coloring. Further issues will be released on a monthly schedule.

And before anyone asks, yes, the comic book serialization and the graphic novel series of Age of Bronze will continue.
