The funny thing about Kill the Minotaur is how it’s pretty funny. It’s serious, about serious things–writers Chris Pasetto and Christian Cantamessa are retelling the Greek Minotaur legend with some actual history involved, but they still manage to make it funny. It’s about a young prince in a weird situation, he’s going to be angsty, but still stupid enough to be funny. So even though there’s danger and awfulness going on, it’s always an engaging read.
Artist Lukas Ketner works a lot on his expressions. Expressive eyes, looking around, thinking; it’s awesome. He’s also great at the Greek setting and costumes.
Kill the Minotaur is off to an excellent start.
