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.
