Useleus: a Greek Oddity

by Wilbur Dawbarn Alexander Matthews


Embark on the craziest odyssey through Ancient Greece, alongside its most hopeless hero, Useleus and his long-suffering teacher, the legendary Minotaur!

From battling giants, to outwitting gods, to clashes with mythical creatures, Ancient History has never been more fun! An Asterix for the 21st Century, Leaping from the hallowed pages of popular children’s weekly comic, The Phoenix, USELEUS channels Ancient History through the madcap eyes of two renowned Beano and Dandy creators, Alexander Matthews (words) and Wilbur Dawbarn (pictures).

Alexander Matthews’ work has featured in The Beano, The Dandy, Private Eye and The Spectator.

Wilbur Dawbarn has contributed to The Beano, The Dandy, Private, The Spectator, Punch, The Times, and The Independent.
