Synopsis

Synopsis

Their first mistake was to assume he would give up...
Heracles had it all: a beautiful home, a loving family and a reputation as a great soldier.
Unfortunately, due to his success, he became a victim of jealousy. As the result of a vicious plot, Heracles was hypnotised into committing a terrible crime. Devastated by his actions, he wandered aimlessly, immersed in depression. Finally, he found some solace in the fact that he could atone for his sins by completing ten impossible tasks.
The creator of these tasks was Eurystheus, Heracles's nemesis, who was constantly angered by his refusal to accept defeat. As a man of action, Heracles never complained and never backed down; he simply got on with the job at hand.
Follow Heracles as he strives to complete his tasks by battling a giant lion, fighting monstrous birds and tricking someone into carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders.

“In 80 pages, they attempt to condense…the 12 labors of Heracles for a young audience. That's a daunting task, and I have to say that they were able to do it very well.”

 – DUY, The Comics Cube


"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)
