the Persians prepare to attack Athens, the city sends its swiftest
messenger over 150 miles to Sparta for reinforcements. Then, injured
and exhausted, he must run another 26 miles from the battlefield to
Athens in a desperate last stand for Greece's fledgling Democracy. Set a
generation before the battle that inspired 300, Marathon is
the true story of men who lost everything under tyranny and sacrificed
their lives to fight it. Infurnari's drawings bristle with tension in
this raw and unexpectedly relevant graphic novel.
The epic tale of the original marathon runner.
It was a turning point in ancient history.
It inspires men to greatness.
It was the foundation of one of the greatest and most prevailing global peace efforts of the 20th century.
It was the greatest feat—and the tragic death—of a man whose legacy will never be forgotten.
In 490BC, an Athenian messenger named Eucles ran 153 miles from Sparta to Athens, and in so doing preserved ancient Greek civilization from subjugation to the Persian Empire.
This graphic novel from screenwriter Boaz Yakin and artist Joe Infurnari tells his story.
