Graphic Myths and Legends

Supreme artwork and storytelling are the hallmarks of Lerner Publishing Group’s Graphic Universe imprint. With art and text created by experienced graphic novel authors and artists―who also work for publishers such as DC and Marvel―using traditional drawings, coloring, and lettering techniques, these nonfiction graphic novels significantly raise the bar in quality.

This series of Graphic Universe titles brings to life some of the most enduring myths and legends from a variety of cultures. Action-packed and richly illustrated, the age-old stories will engage readers in a new way. Robust nonfiction back matter―including a discussion of the primary source research employed by the authors and artists―also make these books powerful learning resources.
