As 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.
