STICKMAN ODYSEEY follows a young stickman, Zozimos, as he embarks on a heroic journey to avenge his father?s murder and win back his kingdom. This darkly funny graphic novel will appeal to fans of both Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Homer?s The Odyssey. Seriously!
We promise you haven't read a funnier, more refreshing take on the Greek epic since...ever.
For Christopher Ford, doodling began like it does for most kids, as a way to get through elementary school; he continued to doodle obsessively through NYU Film School. After graduating, Ford co-founded Waverly Films to work in music video and commercial production, doing work for Fatboy Slim, Deathcab for Cutie, McDonald's and MTV.
