PORTLAND, Ore. 09/20/2021 — The most powerful dramatic script by Euripides springs to life anew in a fresh adaptation by writer Edward Einhorn (Paradox in Oz, Fractions in Disguise, The Marriage of Alice B. Toklas by Gertrude Stein) with Age of Bronze art by Eisner Award winning Eric Shanower (Age of Bronze, Oz Graphic Novels, Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland) in the forthcoming Iphigenia In Aulis. This hybrid adaptation will hit shelves from Image Comics in May 2022.
“I have long wanted to combine theater with the graphic novel form, a play on paper, as I call it. Eric and I have been planning this project for about a decade, and I am very excited to see the way his art has brought the work to life,” said Einhorn.
High King Agamemnon faces the most crushing dilemma of his life. Kill his beloved eldest daughter? Or forfeit victory in the Trojan War? A father’s secret plot clashes with a girl’s romantic dreams in this chilling classic play from Ancient Greece.
Shanower added: "I’m proud for my Age of Bronze comics panels to add power to Edward Einhorn’s lively translation of this stark Greek tragedy."
