Also a comic book
by Eddie Campbell
(published by Eddie Campbell Comics). At times very funny, other times tragic, it is the story of the adventures of Bacchus, one of the last of the greek gods (yes, Bacchus is a roman name, but we are clearly dealing with the greek god) to survive to the present day. Contains a lot of mythology and features Theseus
, the Eyeball Kid (son of Argus
, the Telchines (three shady brothers who aspire to be the Gods of Business), the sicilian mafia, satyrs, lots of wine and hangovers.
Cameo appearances by Eddie's pals Dave Sim, Neil Gaiman and Alan Moore.
