Old school Sam Kieth and William Messner-Loebs, repackaged and reprinted in '03 with an extra story and three pages of sketchbook material. I never really noticed how deeply the 1970s underground comix influences ran in Kieth's work before, which is odd because I've followed him somewhat religiously forever and it's plain as day here. Overall, he's had much better showings - both in the earlier stories, which were printed between '89 and '91, and the later tale which was created specifically for ...more
Writer William Messner-Loebs and artist Sam Kieth tinker a lot with history, including Greek gods and myths into the titular character's travels across Greece in search of students for his school of Moderation, but it is some darn funny tinkering. The writing is somewhat subtle for your typical comic book (or comics reader), but students of classic civilization, classical history, folklore, and mythology will likely get some laughs out of the representations of philosophers and the gods who poke ...more

For a old graphic novel, this was actually a pretty entertaining read. It's a retelling of the Greek myths but with more naughty humor along with modern-day references. The artwork and colors are pretty good for their time, and the stories within are entertaining (three of them altogether) along with some exploration of philosophy and mythology for a decent price make for a solid buy. I especially liked the Hades and Persephone tale - it was funny to see the idea that they eloped together and ma ...more
If you have read or endured the Greek philosophers at some point in your education, you will really enjoy the fun in this graphic novel. The author pokes fun at the august Plato and Socrates, using Epicurus as the foil. These poor guys stumble though life finding that there abstract thinking does not always pan out in the real world. Very, very enjoyable!
Warning: nudity. Hey, this is the Greeks. Remember exercising in the nude gymnasiums.

I personally didn't like this book much at all. It has a lot of hard to understand words, and it didn't seem to follow a solid story to me. I felt like it was jumping all over the place.
Charming retelling of Greek myths with a cast of anachronistically assorted philosophers, including the eponymous Epicurus. Clever writing, beautifully rendered artwork.
The title is somewhat of a misnomer since only the first story deals with Epicurus and the rest of the work deals with Greek Mythology.
This was great. I laughed all over the place. I loved the artwork and color of it. Just great. There needs to be more of these.
One of my favorite graphics novels.
