“Welcome David Rubín to the table. He is a big talent and the real deal. The Hero is a strong statement of intent.”—Paul Pope (creator of Battling Boy)In ancient Greece the first superhero was born. Heracles, the son of Zeus, came into the world with strength, charm, and a fighting spirit. Groundbreaking storyteller David Rubín (Illustrator on Paul Pope’s The Rise of Aurora West) reexamines the life of the world’s greatest champion in The Hero, chronicling Heracles’s incredible adventures, from his innocent boyhood to his meteoric rise to popularity as he tackles the Twelve Labors. It is a journey tempered by a steady decay that never relieves him of his heroic burden. And it is this burden that becomes his only grip on reality as Heracles edges toward his fateful end.Introduction by John Arcudi (B.P.R.D., The Creep)!
