Laura joins David to talk about Greek Myth Comix
, which started when she made an pact with one of her Classical Civilisation students to get back into drawing. She discusses her favourite graphic novel authors and writers, the difficulties in adapting the ancient world for modern audiences (and why she wasn't a fan of the BBC show Atlantis
), and when Greek Myth Comix
got onto the front page of Reddit. Laura also chats about her work on the Amarantus and his Neighbourhood
project from Cambridge School Latin, which aims to teach kids about life among the lower-classes of Pompeii.
