    I have to say I found this to be a disappointment. I'm a fan of Greek mythology so a comic about Theseus and the minotaur sounded great. But Theseus was nothing more than a spoiled brat, the rest of the characters outside of Ariadne weren't any better. The minotaur was some weird cross between the movies Leviathan and Predator. There was no quick thinking or intelligence to defeating the monster. Just let's keep poking it until it quits moving an...

    I received a free copy of this book from EdelweissThis wasn't awful by any means. The art was good, the storyline for the most part way okay even if it probably could have done with a bit more complexity, and I really liked what they did with Ariadne [Theseus ...not so much, although for how annoying he was I surprisingly didn't actually hate him]. I was all ready to give this 3 stars for a fairly decent read but then they had to thrown in some w...

    Worthless!A waste of time and money, trying to put a "new spin", and a completely ridiculous one at that, on a classical story and making a total mess it if it. If you like senseless blood and pointless slaughter, by all means read this drivel. Otherwise, find something worthwhile to do with your time and money.

    I'm a big fan of Greek mythology and Theseus and the Minotaur has long been a favorite story of mine. While this comic isn't a very faithful adaptation of that story it's still a lot of fun to read and enough of the original story beats are still present that it's not really that big of a deal that they've gone and switched things up.And why wouldn't they? Put their own spin on things I mean - It's not like the original suddenly disappears if you...

    I really like the concept of taking a classic story and fleshing it out - and of course adding in some new twists and turns. I was drawn to this book because I love the world of ancient Greece and the artwork is fantastic. King Minos of Crete demands tributes from Athens to sacrifice to his adopted son the semi-mystical Minotaur trapped in the labyrinth designed by Daedalus. Theseus, the Prince of Athens, is tired of this - and also desirable of ...

    Excellent graphic book, I guess they call it manga now days, but I just think of it as an adult comic book. I liked this a lot because you actually got a cohesive story and so I wasn't having my head spinning wondering how I got from point A to point R. I hate it when the story is compromised just because there is beautiful graphic art so they think it's ok. No it's not Ok. I want a true story, beginning, middle and end. This is a very adult, fou...

    So I found this to be a pretty entertaining take on a Greek myth. The story is very horrific in so many ways, it ranges from the alien like Minotaur, to the level of violence and death that most of the character experiences. The maze is a living object with a decide to inflict pain and delusions. Even King Minos is one character you have to root for his death.The ending to this one is very unique and, for the time being, is just a mini-series. Ho...

    "It's all so... so clouded." Actually, the word is 'muddled' in modern parlance - the story here, a revisionist look at the legend of Theseus and the Minotaur, in the Labyrinth, is very muddled. There's no easy way in to know who is Greek and who Cretan, the action scenes really aren't drawn very well at all, and it all acts as a source of bluff and thunder, and not the more serious combination we had been expecting.

    I have been a big fan of Greek Mythology since I was a kid. One of my favorites of the myths is the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur and I have read countless takes on it. I was very excited going into this graphic novel. This take on the myth is different but was an interesting way of twisting it. Athens lost a long war against Crete and now are forced to a pay a large tribute to King Minos. Every year, King Minos has the Athenians choose their ...

    A delightful mix of mythology, Conan style sword and sandals adventure and lovecraftian squick, kill the minotaur sees the classic myth of Theseus and the labyrinth transmuted into the origin story for a whole archipelago of classic heroics and cosmic horror. The art is beautiful, sickening, and indulgent. The Worldbuilding vibrant, the character motivations are overwrought as greek drama demands. The labyrinth is a force unto itself in this edit...

    This was an extremely brutal and beautifully done story. If you enjoy mythology in any way, I think this is definitely a worthwhile read.

    A revisionist rendition with a more relatable Theseus.

    a fun twist on a classic myth that makes the minotaur a much more dangerous threat than many people envision
