Episode #16: The End (Part 4 of 5)

FINALLY. I found a way to combine my love of Robocop with my interest in Greek mythology. I do hope more people "get" this one than I expect. I know not everyone has a collection of Greek myths sitting on top of their toilet to read through during their "alone time" and that a lot of people have only been exposed to those characters via Disney or Kevin Sorbo. So lemme break it down for you. Zeus pretty much spent his entire reign as a deity using Earth as is own personal whore-house. And Hera spent pretty much all of her time trying to kill his mistresses and bastard children. Hercules wasn't made of cloud fluff and turned half-human by two incompetent demons. He was birthed after Zeus had his way with some lady. Nine months later, a demi-god was born. Hera then put a snake in his crib and hoped it would be enough to kill the bastard, but instead, the infant Hercules choked that son of a bitch to death one-handed.
And just to keep a tangent going, Hades is not the Greek devil. That's just how he's protrayed because modern literature needs an antagonist. My favorite thing about Greek myth is that there never was a good and evil. Every god had the capacity to be a fantastic asshole or magnificent savior. It all depended on how HARD you prayed. How BIG your sacrifice was. They would turn on you and you would never know why. One second, shit was cool. Your crops were plentiful and your family was healthy. Then the next second, your daughters are all giving birth to goat demons and your skin is falling off while you're watching your farm burn down. Greek gods were crazy, yo.
I also learned that gold is a hard thing to convey when you use a flat palette. Robocop is now made of gold in that last panel.
Anyway. That's enough out of me. I have a dork-date with Blair over in Azeroth.
