    Volume 2 - 1st printing.

    Story and art by Edouard Cour.

    Author Edouard Cour revisits one of the greatest Greek myths by painting the often-heroic Herakles as, well . . . somewhat of a jerk. Crude and stubborn at times, in little glimpses we meet a man-half-human, after all-with a psychology more complex than he appears, entangled in guilt over the ghosts who have haunted him since childhood. A mournful sadness seizes him as he crosses the fleeting silhouettes of a woman and her three children. "Friends or foe, all those who cross his path end up stiff and worm food," comments Linos, the ghost of his childhood music teacher.

    Brimming with pathos and dark humor, this portrait of Herakles is a graphic whirlwind leaving little respite and often revealing beautiful surprises. This second volume follows the titular hero on four more of his epic quests, each one a stepping-stone in his growth as both man and god.

    Hardcover, 136 pages.

    Cover price $19.99.

    Volume 3 - 1st printing.

    Story and art by Edouard Cour.

    Despite having fulfilled the prophesy of Pythia, Herakles ends up empty-handed and sentenced to mortal servitude by Zeus himself. But in the end, is that so bad? If Olympus won't have him, maybe its time to just settle down on earth with a queen and kingdom. . . as if any legendary story could end so simply...

    Hardcover, 160 pages.
