What defines a hero? Is it the vanquishing of monsters and madmen? Or is it something more? It has been five years since the legendary Perseus defeated the evil Gorgon Medusa, killed the Kraken and assumed the crown of Argos. Things seemed idyllic throughout the kingdom and the news of an heir put the citizens in a celebratory mood.Yet lurking in the shadows is the one being in Argos simmering with hate and discontent. And as gods and enemies alike conspire to destroy him, Perseus faces his greatest test ever...what does it mean to be a hero. Inspired by the classic Ray Harryhausen movie Clash of the Titans, is the heralded continuation of the story. Now presented for the first time in its entirety as a 96-page graphic novel, Wrath of the Titans delivers everything a proper Greek Drama demands: a hero, a cause, secret pacts, divine meddling and revenge, insurmountable challenges, dangerous creatures and non-stop adventure.

This continuation of Clash of the Titans does justice to the 1981 film that showcased Ray Harryhausen's much-loved stop-motion special effects. This story begins with the movie's leads, Perseus and Andromeda, about to become parents. Unfortunately, the happy couple is the focus of conflict among the Greek gods, as surly and devious as a roomful of Marvel superheroes. To thwart the boss of the gods, Zeus, also Perseus's father, his rival Olympian deities steal the baby and send the young hero off on a picaresque, picturesque search for his son. This plot is largely an excuse to move from one fight scene to another, but Balan and Metcalf's art bustles with Jack Kirbyesque energy as they respond to the challenge of depicting the crowd of gods and the parade of creatures they summon, climaxing with a battle between the Kraken and the Colossus of Rhodes. As with the original movie, a routine script doesn't spoil the fun. (July)
