The Comic Strip Greatest Greek Myths
“'This book is undoubtedly the most original book about history you will ever read . . . A truly entertaining way to discover what gruesome deeds our ancestors got up to'” – Anorak magazine
For anyone from the effortlessly erudite to those who think that a myth is a female moth, it's extremely handy to know about Greek myths. Not only are they everywhere - books, films, language, the collective subconscious - it will also make you look clever.
Now from Jason and the Argonauts to Helen of Troy (via Achilles' Heel), all the essential myths - plus a few brilliant but less well-known ones - have been condensed in one hilarious volume.
Featuring eye-gouging, baby-eating, liver-pecking and wooden horses, these are some of the most exciting and satisfying tales ever told . . . from the stories that created Heroes, invented Amazons, and brought you the Cyclops, centaurs and ladies with snakes in their hair.
