About Theseus: Vol 1
Theseus is a well-known figure in mythology for defeating bandits, killing the minotaur, and ruling over Athens. While the story itself is a fable, there is likely a true story that undergirds the legend. This is most definitely not it.
This is more like what happens if someone loves Greek mythology very much, studies it in-depth along with the culture, language and history of that period, is fascinated by the idea of a true story behind the myth, but is simply not a serious person.
Theseus: Volume 1 is a satirical retelling of Theseus' first four adventures along his path to Athens. And rather than powerful hero from the myth, Theseus is neither very strong nor particularly smart, and is simply swept up in a tide of accidental fortunes as well as the schemes and mischief of a host of bored gods.
After learning that his father is king of Athens, Theseus sets out on foot to meet him, encountering bandits and beasts across the landscape of Ancient Greece. Sound interesting? Don't take my word for it. Just go read it for free at theseuscomic.com. If you like it, come back here and buy it, so we can make more books.
Volume 1 is a hardcover with a total of 148 pages. 129 full color comic pages, 4 pages of Letters from Readers (which aren't real), a tutorial for drawing comic pages (which is thoroughly unhelpful) and behind the scenes and unpublished artwork from development (which is legitimate).
The Carthage Project is very new. It's so new it only has one book. But the idea is simple. Historical and mythological comics and graphic novels with a comedic spin. Family-friendly and in love with history.
