How do you slay that which you cannot look at? This just one of the many challenges that faces 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.

While his life may have appeared destined for mediocrity, the hero in him could not remain hidden as he embarked on a quest in which he needed to slay none other than the terrible Medusa, who could turn any man who looked at her into stone. But this would not be an easy task. He needed weapons, training, guidance, and much more. After all of this, will Perseus be able to answer Destiny’s Call?

“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
