Review:
Calliope is a fun and visually interesting publication. Each issue explores a specific subject from world history such as the Early Irish, Roman Gladiators, Marco Polo, and Catherine the Great from a variety of angles. The topics are fleshed out through editorial, puzzles, and graphic stories that both educate and entertain. Departments include "Ask Calliope" in which readers submit history-related questions and "Off the Shelf" book recommendations related to the issue's chosen subject.
