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, we meet a man-half-human with a psychology more complex than he appears, entangled in guilt over the ghosts who have haunted him since childhood. Brimming with pathos and dark humor, this portrait of Herakles is a graphic whirlwind leaving little respite and often revealing beautiful surprises.
