Zeus is a god with a reputation for lechery, and it's been driving his wife Hera nuts for years. Reaching her limit one night, she puts together an epic practical joke: she places a spell on Zeus that makes him fall in lust with every inanimate object in sight! It was a night Zeus doesn't remember, but his godly seed took root nevertheless. Now, eighteen years later, his unnatural hybrid bastards wander the world. And because Zeus has a reputation to protect, these embarrassing freaks have got to go! But this motley crew refuses to go quietly. Through schemes both ingenious and idiotic — Cotton, a smarmy cloth patchwork; Carmine, a timid automobile; Corey, a self-loathing apple; Walter, a belligerent stack of bricks; and Panos, their gallant would-be leader — will force their negligent father to acknowledge them — that is, if their own squabbling doesn't defeat them first! Collecting the mini-series that takes Greek mythology in a decidedly different direction, the Hybrid Bastards! hardcover includes a bonus story and pin-ups by talented guests.
