Shanower's pen-and-ink art from his Age of Bronze graphic novel series illustrates the heart-rending story of a father's love and crime. Einhorn's new translation brings all the nuance and agony of Euripides's ancient Greek tragedy to new life.

What would you do if the gods demanded you sacrifice your eldest child? That’s the decision facing Agamemnon, leader of the Achaean army in the Trojan War.

What would you do if you suddenly discovered that your father had decreed your death? That’s the decision facing fourteen-year-old Iphigenia, who expected not a death sentence but a wedding when she arrived at the army camp in Aulis.

Iphigenia in Aulis plumbs the depths of human despair and scales the height of human nobility. Time has failed to diminish the power of this classical Greek tragedy since Euripides wrote it in the fifth century BCE. It blasts both the human heart and the human mind. Edward Einhorn’s vital new translation and Eric Shanower’s evocative illustrations together propel the reader into a fascinating new experience of this ageless story.
