House of the Muses: The Latter Days of Sappho of Lesbos, vol #1 - The Phokaian

By Pam Harrison

3-D graphics, lesbian romance and political intrigue all add up to make this projected six volume historical graphic novel really unique.

Volume #1 - The Phokaian introduces us to Dika, a Spartan female slave who comes to Lesbos, is adopted by an upper class family and betrothed to a man. But Dika falls for the beautiful Timas of Phokaia instead, and has plans to make the woman her own.

House of the Muses is a story coming to us from across milennia about Sappho and her times, that took the author over 20 years to complete. (Sappho was the most famous Lesbian poet of antiquity. I blogged about her recently here.)
