  Hmm. From the title, I was hoping to find an early Greek myth story that could coincidentally fit in with the later Silver Age Hercules. That's definitely not goinng to work with this dude, though. Too bad.

This story's Varen "Hercules" David actually sounds like he has a very similar origin story to Alan Moore's (much much later, ~1999) Tom Strong series, which is a fun, creative take on the old school adventurer story.

...er, I hope unsolicited recommendations for stories that seem similar are ok here.

  Hercules, Hercules, Hercules...The story was very choppy. Making it look like Bobbie was just walking around pointing out things for Hercules to do!

'Nuff Said - "All I ask is your thanks--it was a little thing for a strong man to do."-Hercules, Hercules, Hercules...
