about

An impious and impertinent depiction of ancient Greek gods plus the exploits of selected heroes.

The Titans, and their creatively-engineered kin, are touched upon then ensuing Olympian deities dealt with in some detail. You may recoil at their improper relationships with relations. You will marvel at their imaginative (mostly illegal) seduction techniques. You should definitely tremble at their propensity for spiteful and capricious punishments.

Heroes are displayed in all their, occasionally tarnished, glory. Monsters are insouciantly despatched, maidens rescued and appropriated (some carelessly - and incautiously - discarded at a later stage) and wrongs righted.

Also includes: the judgement of Paris (the prince not the place), the Trojan War (truncated) and the terrible revenge of a love-crossed sorceress.
