Hercules, half-god, half-man, is the son of a mortal mother and Zeus, king of the Gods. But Zeus's wife, the goddess Hera, resents Hercules and resolves to make his life miserable. She tricks him into performing a series of seemingly impossible labors- stopping a lion that resists every weapon, stealing a mad white bull from the island of Crete, and capturing the three-headed dog of the underworld. These tasks test not only his legendary strength, but also his courage, cunning, and fighting skill. Told in a full-color graphic novel format. Map. Further reading and Web sites. Index.
