Milligan, Peter; Illustrated by: Gianfelice, Davide
Date finished: 2011-09-11
A modern-day adaptation of Greek myth and tragedy, with a supernatural twist. Eddy is a London street punk, left in an orphanage by his mother, and starts doing errands for the vicious organized-crime Fureys. Lord Menon is living a double life, a respectable classicist with a string of mistresses and a murder to his credit. Detective Inspector Dedalus is investigating a series of brutal mutilations. Collecting the first four issues of the series, this isn't really a complete story, as many threads are set up but none are concluded here. But I really enjoyed watching Milligan set the characters in motion, and would have been happy to continue straight on to volume 2; I'll have to get it soon.
