Bringing the Greek back to the games, this 'Olympians' comic by Grant Snider is funny and well-made.
Showing what the Olympics might look like if Greek mythology played a stronger role, this very literal comic features Cerberus, centaurs and even Cyclops. Though the reality of these creatures making an appearance at the games would be horrific to say the least, the comic has a light feel to it which makes it all the more enjoyable to look at.
The drawing, like much of Grant Snider's other work, is whimsical and not over-thought. Showing his talent without being overly complex, this piece shows why Snider has been so successful as a cartoonist worthy of viral status.
