Greek mythology and its multitude of characters is the basis for GREEK STREET. From Agamemnon to Oedipus Rex, to Zeus, Aphrodite, Dionysus and Medusa, the characters in Greek mythology are very vibrant and, in many ways, relatable even today.
As the second storyline “The Cassandra Complex” begins, Milligan reinterprets The Trojan Cycle. In the myths, one of my favorite women, Cassandra, has the gift of prophecy, yet she’s powerless because no one believes her as she warns against the impending double-cross. How frustrating! Well, the same goes for Sandy in GREEK STREET—she’s just thought to be a troubled young girl. But now, with Eddie and Sandy on the run, I wonder if her premonitions are going to be taken seriously?
In anticipation of this storyline, who’s your favorite character in Greek mythology and why?
