Announcing: Kill The Minotaur!

Hey gang! Brian here! I get the honor today of helping announce our latest and greatest series: KILL THE MINOTAUR! Created and written by Chris Pasetto and Christian Cantamessa (the duo who wrote AIR and who we’ve been dying to work with again) with art by Lukas Ketner (who was the artist on WITCH DOCTOR and ditto on the dying to work with note) KILL THE MINOTAUR is an amazing take on Greek mythology and legend. You might be familiar with the Cretan Labyrinth and Minotaur myth but definitely not like this! Jean-Francois Beaulieu (colors) and Clem Robins (letters) round out the creative team and everyone here is doing AWESOME work. I read the first issue and immediately wanted more. This story is going to move fast and hit hard and I can’t wait for you guys to read it. Check out the preview and official synopsis:

Synopsis
Athens lost the war to Crete. Now, they pay tribute to King Minos by sacrificing their best citizens to his unearthly labyrinth. Conspirators believe Theseus can be the hero they need to end the mad king’s bloody reign… but no one on this world has ever encountered anything like the savage minotaur.

Chris Pasetto, Christian Cantamessa (RED DEAD REDEMPTION) and Lukas Ketner (WITCH DOCTOR) reinvent the most fearsome beast of all with this horrific tale of heroism. Each issue features 30 pages of story.

    Bravo, Skybound. Looks to be another hit that I’ll pick up. Never have I picked up so many titles from one publisher! I LOVE Greek mythology, and what a fantastic concept to use. I am SO glad you guys are utilizing the incredible Lukas Ketner. I still reread my witch doctor trades once a year. Such a talented artist. And Beaulieu on colors!?! Keep em coming, Skybound….

    Cool! I’m celebrating my birthday in Athens soon before the first issue hits the stands, so I will be extra excited about this title! I wonder if the creators of Kill the Minotaur have read The Greek Myths by Robin Waterfield. I’ve read many books retelling the immortal stories of Greek mythology, but that book is the one I love the most. It’s true to the source material and doesn’t shy away from the brutality and the horror ingredients of some myths, but the storytelling is full of fresh beauty and wonder, sparking the reader’s imagination. Reading the preview of the first issue, I have high hopes for this series. I’m glad to say that from what I’ve seen so far, it looks like this version of the myth will be imaginative without straying too far from the magic of the original story. Let the yarn unwind!
