Originally, the word Eskimo came from an Agonquin term for “eater of flesh,” but that definition has been lost to the ages, until now. Present day, an isolated town in Northern Canada discovers the true origins when a stranger arrives and they are overrun by cannibalistic creatures. Along with the help of some locals, the town’s police officer and his pregnant wife must do anything they can to get out alive.

I was recently contacted to review Modern Mythology: The Hero’s Journey, a comic anthology retelling mythological stories, many reimagined in new, more modern ways. I was sent a digital copy for review, along with a press kit of images I can use for my review, and a link to their Kickstarter.
The creator and editor, Caleb Palmquist, really pulled together an amazing team of writers and artists to create something special with this book. Modern Mythology: The Hero’s Journey is a 160+ page softcover book with seventeen stories created by 29 talented individuals. In addition to all of this amazingness, there are also a collection of pin ups from other independent comic book artists.
I hadn’t heard of this until it was recommended to me a few months ago by a friend. I was promised underwater horror, made by Scott Snyder and Sean Murphy – which all sounded completely up my alley.
