Author Edouard Cour revisits one of the greatest Greek myths by paintingthe often-heroic Herakles as, well . . . somewhat of a jerk. Crude and stubbornat times, in little glimpses we meet a man--half-human, afterall--with a psychology more complex than he appears, entangled in guiltover the ghosts who have haunted him since childhood. A mournful sadness seizeshim as he crosses the fleeting silhouettes of a woman and her three children. "Friends or foe, all those who cross his path end up stiff and worm food,"?comments Linos, the ghost of his childhood music teacher. Brimming with pathosand dark humor, this portrait of Herakles is a graphic whirlwind leaving littlerespite and often revealing beautiful surprises.
