Overview

How do you slay that which you cannot look at? This just one of the many challenges that face the young hero Perseus, son of the mighty ruler of Olympus, Zeus. When Perseus was an infant, he and his mother were cast into the sea in a casket. Luckily, Perseus was rescued by a humble fisherman who raised him well.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I highly recommend Campfire’s comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in  a way that excites kids about classic literature." — Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom (a resource for teachers and librarians)

"A popular story theme in Greek myths is someone trying to forge their own destiny (and failing horribly! Can you say Oedipus?) or trying to discover what their destiny is. Perseus is both sides of this theme - Perseus is out to find his destiny while others try to stop the young hero to thwart their own horrible destinies. The hero is sent on an impossible quest that seems more like a suicide mission, and it is brains, not brawn, that wins the day. I rate Perseus a 9.5 (out of 10)." — John Tompkins, Children's Librarian/Graphic Novel Specialist
