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. Brimming with pathos and dark humour, 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.
