Athens lost the war to Crete. Now, they must pay tribute to King Minos by sacrificing their best citizens to his unearthly labyrinth and the terror within.

Select praise for KILL THE MINOTAUR:
“Putting a fresh spin on an age-old myth is no easy feat, but that’s exactly what Chris Pasetto and Christian Cantamessa have done. The art by Lukas Ketner is equally strong...no panel feels sparse or underutilized.” —IGN
“A quality creative team’s take on the myth of the labyrinth may end up being one of the definitive tellings.” —Multiversity Comics
“KILL THE MINOTAUR manages a straightforward simplicity with effective characterization to make the dark and disturbing mythology more accessible, but never sacrifices quality or depth to do so. New layers to the original myth are explored through beautiful, haunting, and extravagantly detailed art.”
