«Bold, intriguing, and imaginative. . . . [A] clever mix of fact and ‘fun,’ enlivened by [Fawkes's] graphic reimagining of the Bronze Age world."---David Stuttard, Classics for All ​​​​​​​»

«

1177 B.C. [A Graphic History of the Year Civilization Collapsed] uses the graphic novel format in ingeniously inventive ways to present the complicated history of the end of the Bronze Age. . . . An astonishing amount of information is packed into these pages, drawing on a vast range of sources, from inscriptions to archeological evidence to literature, including the Iliad and the Bible. . . . Together, the words and pictures show how history is made.
