Greek Street Vol. 1

Blood Calls For Blood


Formats & editions


GREEK STREET is Peter Milligan's & Davide Gianfelice's re-imagining of the brutal and visceral tragedies that graced the Theater of Dionysus in Ancient Greece. GREEK STREET is an updating of many of the famous Greek dramas (Oedipus Rex, The Orestia, etc) and epic poems (Iliad, Odyssey) into a gritty modern day London. The opening arc follows runaway EDDIE who unknowingly sleeps with his own mother and than accidentally kills her. He's seeks shelter on London's Greek Street - a seedy neighborhood filled with strip joints, dive bars, gangsters and all form of vice. From there he meets a young girl SANDY, cursed with visionary powers that no one believes is real. GS is a sexy blend of crime, supernatural and soap opera all using characters and plots that are simultaneously familiar yet brand new.
