"In a distant universe parallel to Earth’s, the Murnian Gods reign. The Murnian Gods are both powerful and great, for they recieve their power from their worshippers’ faith, faith being the greatest power of all. All is not tranquil, for the Murnian Gods have many enemies! To avenge his son’s death, Laran, king of the Murnian Gods, married a mortal woman. From their union, Bullon the warrior was born. When he came of age, Bullon gathered a company of warriors and adventurers to accompany him on a journey frought with peril. His destiny is not yet revealed. The stage is set, a world is changed, the adventure begins."
The end. No need to read the comic. The synopsis takes care of the whole first issue. And beyond it, I would suppose, since as far as I can figure, he meets no “warriors” or “adventurers” in this issue.
Well, I can tell you for certain, since I read the Iliad in one night in college, I have personally been waiting for a sequel (and none of that hangers-on bullshit like the Odyssey. I mean come on…). Thankfully, a mere 2800 years later that very task was tackled by the creative team of I’m-not-sure-they-didn’t-put-any-credits. Wait. I mean President John MacVicar (investment), Vice-President Ronald MacVicar (story), and last MacVicar but not least MacVicar, Treasurer Michael MacVicar (art). They’re Canadian, so they’re understandably proud to carry such honorifics as Pres, VP, and Treasurer, as it is a country brimming with investors, story-tellers, and artists, so mentioning that right off the bat would just sound like “Canadian, Canadian, Canadian” to my American eye-ears.
