Mythographers We Love: Eros and Psyche Project

There’s a very nice comic retelling of the Eros and Psyche myth, by two Greek girls, Myrto Gkiouli and Eirini Skoura.

It was a kickstarted project that got a lot of attention from fans. And it was well deserved, the design is lovely and very emotive.

You can find them on their page on Facebook, for orders etc.

Here’s a juicy taste of the story:

“A light breeze blew in from the window and put out the lamp’s flame, plunging the room in darkness. Using her surprise to his advantage, Eros seized the opportunity and slipped into bed next to her. Her eyes widened in shock; someone was in her bed. That was it, then; time to meet her mysterious husband. She was petrified; from fear or anticipation, she didn’t know.”

There’s a limited time promotion running for each ebook order with an added collection of short stories.

Here it is in their own words:

It’s been 2 years since the launch of our campaign, so, in order to celebrate the occasion, starting today, and for the following month, anyone who buys the e-book (at a special price too!), will be getting a bonus pdf with a collection of short stories/outtakes revolving around the myth! (make sure you read the introduction of that thing as well, it’s fun!)
