Old school mythology clashed with a post-apocalyptic future when an atypically clean shaven Hercules awoke four weeks after World War III, the star of his own series. He broke free of his enchanted bonds to rescue a blind teenager, Kevin, and his dog, who were being terrorized by an enraged sea creature. Doing so also freed the anti-gods from their prison, including Hercules’ nemesis, the god of war, Ares. Hercules Unbound featured powerful writing from Gerry Conway plus stellar artwork by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez throughout its 12 issue run.
