Description
The epic tale of the original marathon runner--just in time for the 2012 Olympic Games

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.
