STORY – 7

Subject

It’s an integral aspect of Greek Mythology that should definitely peak our interests. How and why Zeus became the God of Gods, the ruler of the sky, the weilder of thunder! 

Cronus obtained power by over-throwing his father. It is the same way his son, Ouranos came to power. But Cronus cursed Ouranos, and to stop that curse from turning into a reality, Ouranos swallowed his offsprings, including Zeus, or at least, that’s what he thought. But Zeus was hidden safely and nurtured under proper care and guidance and now it’s Zeus’s turn to dethrone his father Ouranos. Because his fathers and forefathers have been terrible rulers, and Zeus dreams of a better and prosperous future. So, there’s a massive war brewing. See how Zeus takes power for himself as he picks up his famous sword of storms for the first time and leads the rise of the Olympians!

READ  Draupadi: The Fire Born Princess – Review and Ratings

Listen to Lady Demiarties, as she narrates the take of adventure and excitement – the take of the origin of the Olympians and the legend of the Storm Lord. 

Pace

It’s a well paced story. The story is being narrated beautifully by Lady Demiarties to a group of young children who are filled with awe but also, doesn’t shy away from asking thought provoking questions about their history. It’s a beautiful experience. 

Grip

The grip was losing a bit sometimes because the concept of – son overthrowing his dictatorial father seems to be a cycle the plot could not get out of. Even though, it’s a part of the Greek mythology, but this adaptation could have used some minor modifications or a bit of a shift of focus every now and then. 

Impact

Well, the story wasn’t really that impactful. It was decent. It was actually kind of inspiring to see, how Zeus’s ascension to power was violently contested. In fact, he claimed power for his own by waging a horrible war that threatened to destroy the entire world. And to make matters worse, he was opposed in this battle for all existence by none other than his own father. So standing up to what’s wrong like the way Zeus did, even when the deeds are committed by his own father is truly spectacular. 

DIALOGUES – 9

Lucidity in language was maintained and the use of words were at a bare minimum. The interactions between Lady Demiarties and her pupils were joyous but they also subtly added a different perspective to the way we see the whole story unfold.

ARTWORK & COLORING – 8

The art is good in general. But it does have plenty of room for improvement. Some panels felt like, the artist did his job in haste. Detailings were missing a bit. The coloring on the other hand, looks pretty good. 

GRAPHIC DESIGN & LETTERS – 9.5

The overall design suits well with the mythological mood. The letterings were done perfectly, not leaving much room for complaint.
