Eddie Campbell’s Bacchus is a true epic, spanning a decade of work, over a thousand pages, and several millennia of alcohol consumption.
In Bacchus, the visionary behind From Hell (with Alan Moore) and Alec: The Years Have Pants presents his version of “an American-style comic book,” filtered through his own brilliant, whimsical, and wide-ranging sensibility. With a fine blend of action, comedy, suspense, and an ear for a great story, Bacchus brings the gods and myths of ancient Greece to modern life, as if they had never left.
Nearly 600 pages, this deluxe volume collects the second half of the Bacchus saga (including 1001 Nights of Bacchus, Hermes vs. the Eyeball Kid, The Picture of Doreen Grey, King Bacchus, and Banged Up), with new notes and commentary by the author. -- a b&w softcover graphic novel with French flaps, 552 pages, 7 1/2" x 10" (portrait)
