RS & Hotfile | 5 CBR | Radical Comics | Release Dates Aug 12 2009 - Jan 6 2010 | 91.4 MB Total
is a five part miniseries, released through Radical Comics with each issue containing 24 pages of story. It is written by legendary comic writer Steve Moore and features the artwork of Cris Bolson. Knives of Kush is the long-awaited sequel to Steve Moore’s previous Hercules mini-series "The Thracian Wars". A reading of "The Thracian Wars" is not at all essential to understanding the plot of the second book, but obviously it will enhance the reader’s enjoyment. Following the events that occurred in "The Thracian Wars", Hercules and his band of Greek mercenaries were traveling across the Mediterranean sea, bound for the port of Piramesse in the Nile delta, with hopes of then moving on to Memphis to seek work as mercenaries. Events led them to the land of the Pharoahs, however, and this meeting of contrasting cultures and mythos--Greek mythology juxtaposed alongside Egyptian mysticism--makes for a very interesting plot. Moore's interpretation of Hercules goes back to more ancient versions and the artwork is simply fabulous, in keeping with Radical's reputation for painted comic books. Quite good. Issue #5 was sceduled for release last November 25, 2009 yet but was only released January 6, 2010.
