High King Agamemnon lusts to conquer the
wealthy city of Troy.
He leads his army across the sea, fighting all the way. On the island of Tenedos,
just off the coast of Troy,
Achilles leads the attack. Spears fly and men die. When the dust settles,
Achilles finds himself one step closer to his tragic fate.
Meanwhile, the Trojans prepare their defences
and gather allies. Agamemnon's offer of a peace embassy to King Priam reassures
few. War appears inevitable. Even Helen dreads to face what lies ahead for her
and everyone she loves or once loved.
Collects Age of Bronze #20 - 26, the award-winning (Eisners
2001 and 2003, Gran Guinigi 2006) retelling of the Trojan War, written and
illustrated by Eric Shanower; forget the wishy-washy movie of Troy, this is a
much better re-telling of events told in one of the cornerstones of Western
literature, The Iliad.
