Jason and the Argonauts: Kingdom of Hades

Jason and the Argonauts: Kingdom of Hades

Genre: Fantasy, Licensed

Their quest for the Golden Fleece finally over, Jason and his crew just want to get home. But it is a long journey back, filled with many dangers, old friends, and many old enemies as well – and all the while, they must also deal with the unpredictable games of the Gods.

Their first stop is the island of the dangerous sorceress Circe, known for transforming men into her bestial slaves. But there are a few more dangers on this island than they expect, and Circe’s pets may be the least of their worries.

These latest adventures of Ray Harryhausen’s cult classic characters are scripted by David McIntee, writer of the current Dr. Who book. The artwork, reminiscent of an animated TV show, may appeal more to younger readers. The series also features covers by Mike Grell, and sketchbook selections from Harryhausen himself.
