Product Details


“Maybe life is about the journey and not about the destination. That is the moral put forth in Jason and the Argonauts . . . The thing that sets Jason apart from so many other Greek heroes is that he is not a demi-god, or a child born of a god and a human. Jason is fully man, yet he manages to rally some of Greece’s greatest heroes to his side (including the mighty Hercules/Heracles) for a quest that is set up to be a suicide mission at best. Jason is at times foolish and at others he is extremely clever (like when he has to outsmart some indestructible zombies- yeah, it’s really in the book!). The story moves at a good pace, and loose ends tie up nicely making it feel complete. . . . an enjoyable read and goes along well with (Campfire’s) Labors of Heracles graphic novel.” — John Tompkins, Children’s Librarian/Graphic Novel Specialist

“Colors are used brilliantly in Campfire’s graphic re-telling of Jason and the Argonauts, especially the color red. Sankha Banerjee’s art is fluid, boldly heroic and incredibly immersive. . . The selection of variants from the source materials was indeed wise and made for a uniquely told and well-knit version. . . Bravo Campfire!” — Hercules Invictus, The Quest for the Golden Fleece
