Bacchus mixes air hijacks and ancient gods, gangland drama and legends, police procedural and mythic fantasy, swimming pool cleaners and classics. It shouldn’t work, of course, and it works like a charm. … Eddie Campbell is the unsung King of comic books. … The man’s a genius, and that’s an end to it.” – Neil Gaiman

A story of surprising richness and gravity… Bacchus stands as one of Eddie Campbell’s crowning achievements as writer, artist, and executive creator.” – The Comics Journal

Campbell is one of the premier cartoonists of his generation.”
Publishers Weekly

No one else in the medium combines emotional truth, literary intelligence, and formal daring with such adroitness and elegance.”- Booklist

Eddie Campbell’s Bacchus is a true epic, spanning a decade of work, over a thousand pages, and several millennia of alcohol consumption.

In Bacchus, the visionary behind From Hell (with Alan Moore) and Alec: The Years Have Pants presents his version of “an American-style comic book,” filtered through his own brilliant, whimsical, and wide-ranging sensibility. With a fine blend of action, comedy, suspense, and an ear for a great story, Bacchus brings the gods and myths of ancient Greece to modern life, as if they had never left.

The 560-page Volume One collects the first half of the Bacchus saga and will hit stores in JUNE!
