V.2 - Aritz (english version)

The Knossos legacy


Publisher's summary Éditions Saure

The comic is about three friends caught up in crazy events surrounding the attempt to dictatorially reinstate the former minoic kingdom through chaos and terror. Labyrinths and minotaurs populate the story. A mythological element is present in the same. At the same time we are presented with a general outline of current Cretan culture-the way of life, consumption habits, popular festivals,…all this together gives rise to a complex and absorbing plot into which the transfixed reader doesn’t care about abandoning himself- just as our heroes lose themselves in the labyrinth of the anti hero, Mustoyoryi. The pages exude a scent of Homer and other Hellenic authors. This epic fantasy evokes Homer’s Odyssey and so many other ancient stories, which serve to rejuvenate us and to motivate us to search through the leaves of those old books which have so fed the imagination of humanity.
