Synopsis

Legend The Labours of Heracles by Ryan Foley

Their ?rst mistake was to assume he would give up. Heracles had it all: a beautiful home, a loving family, and a reputation as a great soldier who would stop at nothing to defend his homeland. As the result of a vicious plot, Heracles is hypnotised into committng the worst crime of all. Deva stated by his actions, he wanders aimlessly, immersed in depression. He ? nally ?nds some solace in the fact that he can atone for his sins by completi ng ten impossible tasks. Where other men would give up and consider themselves defeated, Heracles uses his courage, strength and intellect to take up the tasks one by one. Will he succeed? Or has destiny other plans for him?

About the Author

Born in 1974 in Toms River, New Jersey, USA, Ryan Foley's obsession with comic books began during his childhood. He was first introduced to characters like Spider-Man and Batman during trips to the grocery store with his mother. In 2004, Ryan achieved a lifelong goal when his first comic book was published. Ryan cites the works of novelist RA Salvatore; comic book author, J Michael Straczynski; comic artist, Jim Lee; and filmmakers, James Cameron and George Lucas as his biggest creative influences. He claims that RA Salvatore's The Crystal Shard (and his character, Drizzt Do'Urden) is the book that has had the greatest impact on his life. It drew him into the world of fantasy, and inspired him to become a writer. When not writing comics, Ryan enjoys all kinds of movies, especially fantasy and sci-fi films, such as The Lord of the Rings and Star Wars. He is a great fan of games consoles and is an avid player of the Tomb Raider series, and the Guitar Hero franchise. Ryan lives in the small rural community of Adair, Oklahoma. There he graduated from Adair High School and attended the nearby Rogers State University. Still happily residing in the Green Country area, he lives with his wife, Amy; and their three children, Alex, Jason, and Lauren. Ryan has worked with Image Comics and Arcana Studios on comic book series, including Masters of the Universe and Dragon's Lair. Motivated by the memory of his late mother, who bought so many comics for him as a kid, Ryan has written several graphic novel scripts for Campfire. Some of his titles, including the retelling of the great Greek mythological stories of Heracles, Perseus and Theseus will be published in the next 12 months, with many more to come in the future.
