Imagine a graphic novel where Alexander the Great finally meets his match—in the Amazons. Taking readers on a journey from Macedonia to Persia, India, and beyond, The Life and Strange Surprising Adventures of Alexander the Great blends the factual and fantastical in a portrait of history’s own superhero.
Adventures follows Alexander’s quest to come to terms with his complicated paternity. Born to the Queen of Macedonia and her Egyptian lover, who seduced her by impersonating a god, Alexander sets off to discover whether he is a royal bastard or divine son. As he conquers the world in search of a father figure, he encounters strange creatures, from mermaids to flying men, and learns the limits of his extraordinary destiny.
