La Sagesse des mythes is a series of French comic books based on Greek mythology. The series was created by the philosopher Luc Ferry and is published by Glénat Editions since 2016.[1][2]

Creation[edit]

Luc Ferry had previously used the same title for a 2008 book where he argued for the relevance of Greek myths today. It was published in English in 2014 as The Wisdom of the Myths. His interpretations and retellings of the myths are influenced by Timothy Gantz and Jean-Pierre Vernant.[3] The idea to make a comic book series came from the desire to provide the latest scholarship about the Greek myths in a popular form, as Ferry had noted that popular presentations of these stories usually contain many errors.[2]

All the stories are written by Ferry and turned into manuscripts by Clotilde Bruneau. The artistic director for the whole series is Didier Poli and the cover art is created by Frédéric Vignaux. The images are drawn in the ligne claire style and the colour scheme is intended to use the colours associated with ancient Greece.[2]

At the launch of the project in 2016, 30 volumes were planned.[2]
