This is a f^&*ing funny book. It's also incredibly rare these days. If you're lucky enough to get your hands on a copy, grab it!It chronicles the adventures of Hercules in modern-day America, circa the mid-1980s. Much of the modern world is confusing to the mighty Hercules; he mistakes a subway train for a monster and battles it to the death. Victory goes to the son of Zeus, of course! The many passengers who are casualties of the affair are an unfortunate side-note.Hercules also works as a bike-messenger in New York, kills his psychiatrist and carries off his lovely receptionist, discovers the wonder of the Heavy Metal Gods (blasphemy!), and reviews several Greek restaurants.These comic strips originally appeared in National Lampoon (back when it was funny) and High Times. They're drawn in a deliberately crude style that sets the perfect tone for the book. The whole book, in fact, is packed with good stuff; this is a gem that will have you laughing uncontrollably more than once.
