This review contains some minor spoilers.
The word “epic” in reference to comic books is redundant, but it’s the classical sense of the word that carries through in Kevin Grevioux’s Odyssey of the Amazons #1. With narration written on scrolls and a visit by the Fates, this is a story of the early days of the Amazon at a time when differences of opinion exist on what the Amazon should be.
