- 400 BC - THE STORY OF THE TEN THOUSAND - A Graphic Novel - Adaptation
DetailsFortune favours the bold. They were an unstoppable force hired to take the crown from the King of Persia. They were a fearless army of Greek soldiers, and one hundred thousand men fighting as one. They were led by the finest and most courageous generals in all of Greece. They were being led to unimaginable wealth, but that was days ago. Now their leaders are dead and their army has scattered. Now their numbers have fallen to ten thousand men and nothing remains but fear. Now they are men praying not for victory, but for the slim chance of living one more day. Cut off by impassible terrain and pursued by an army of one million enemy soldiers; they must stand together to survive. To find their way home, one of their own must lead them. And to live one more day they must fight.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Lewis Helfand was born on 27th April 1978 in Philadelphia and grew up in nearby Narberth, Pennsylvania. Although interested in cartoons and animation from a young age, by the time he was twelve Lewis s focus had turned to writing. After completing high school, he remained in the Philadelphia area with the intention of pursuing a degree in English. Four years later, with a political science degree and a passion for comic books, Lewis began working for local publishers by proofreading books and newspaper articles. By the age of twenty four, Lewis had been editing phonebooks for a year and a half and felt no closer to his lifelong goal of writing comic books. One day he decided to quit his job. Lewis then spent the next two months working day and night to write and draw his first comic book, Wasted Minute, the story of a world without crime where superheroes are forced to work regular jobs. To cover the cost of self-publishing, he began working odd jobs in offices and restaurants and started exhibiting at local comic-book conventions. With the first issue well received, he was soon collaborating with other artists and released four more issues over the next few years. At the same time, Lewis continues to work outside the field of comic books as a freelance writer and reporter for a number of national print and online publications. He has covered everything from sports and travel to politics and culture for magazines such as Renaissance, American Health and Fitness, and Computer Bits.ABOUT THE PUBLISHER: Campfire is to entertain and educate young minds by creating unique illustrated books that recount stories of human values, arouse curiosity in the world around us, and inspire with tales of great deeds of unforgettable people.
