"Bacchus mixes air hijacks and ancient gods, gangland drama and legends, police procedural and mythic fantasy, swimming pool cleaners and classics. It shouldn't work, of course, and it works like a charm. ... Eddie Campbell is the unsung King of comic books. ... The man's a genius, and that's an end to it." -- Neil Gaiman
"Though one often gets in trouble when saying things like this, I'd like to go on record as stating the following: ”˜Bacchus is the ultimate comic book!’ Why? Because, by some creative miracle, it possesses every possible quality one could hope for: a unique and engaging art style; a brilliantly crafted and intriguing story; completely believable and captivating characters; an undercurrent of humor, sarcasm, and irony; a thought-provoking subtext full of social and political realism; a well-researched examination of history; and, yes … I'll admit it! … superheroes. In its own weird way, Bacchus is actually a revisionist-superhero tale told in epic Greek proportions." -- Chris Staros, THE STAROS REPORT
BACCHUS is a wild and hilarious mythological adventure imbued with unparalleled social and political insight. It's a story of a few Greek gods who have somehow managed to survive the last four millennia. And even though they're the "wisest" and most powerful beings on Earth, they can't seem to rise above the whirlwind of petty grudges and skirmishes that bind them.
The BACCHUS (TWO-VOLUME OMNIBUS) will collect all 1,000 pages of the BACCHUS saga … yes, that’s ONE THOUSAND PAGES!! … the entire epic in two giant 576-page volumes (Vol 1 ISBN 978-1-60309-026-1, Vol 2 ISBN 978-1-60309-027-8). It's time that this long out-of-print masterpiece be introduced to an entirely new comics generation.
A FUTURE RELEASE!
