FORMAT: 

 - 8 to 10 pages per episode, with ideally 9 vignettes per page.

- Direct reference must be made to passages or quotes from the Odyssey. Kostas will send a collection of  expressions that each country will need to find an equivalent for in their own language and include it as  part of the text in the comic, wherever relevant to the action.  

- Episodes will be consecutive in time.  

-Each episode will also be translated into the language of the country of origin.
