As a teenager I dabbled in Manga and when I saw these comics for sale in the Oxfam I recognised the covers immediately. I had no memory of the story but they were very striking visually. I have to say given the choice beween anime worlds and the superhero worlds of American comics I much prefer anime worlds. This story took place many many milennia ago on Venus and transforms Greek myth into computer governments, robots and clones. It's a lovely setting and an interesting premise. Unfortunately, it's execution is a little rough. The four comics are mostly a series of short stories about different events in the world. There's kinda too much action and exposition and not enough of exploring the world through the events as they unfold. It's clumsy and awkward but still enjoyable. It made me think I should go back and try more manga again.
