"Democracy", graphic novel.

This epic graphic novel written by Alecos Papadatos and Abraham Kawa and illustrated by Alecos Papadatos, takes a new, different approach to tales of classical Greece by telling the story of the birth of Athenian democracy in the 6th century BC.
This is a vibrant, living, colorful world of sacred religious mysteries, dark intrigue and bloody confrontation, ending in a great cultural invention.
It’s set in a world where life, love and death are a tangled skein at the hands of indifferent gods speaking, sometimes speaking through the mouths of mortals, of ambitious men circling the halls of power, and of the people who are troubled, duped, hurt, pressed and inspired into fighting for something greater than themselves.
At the center of the story is Leander, an invented character, a metaphor of the Athenian ‘Everyman’.
The life of Leander is a perilous journey from innocence to self-awareness, both as a human being and a citizen.
Born in Athens, at the time between the tyrannical regime of Peisistratus and the rise of the early democratic state of Cleisthenes, he grows up in an era of violent turmoil, marked by civil strife, coup d’ etats and conspiracies.
Raised as a son of prosperous merchants, he ends up destitute, is persecuted and, eventually, banished.
Nurturing his talent as a vase painter while in exile, Leander has his spirit and mettle tested through his relationships with the patron goddess of his lost city, Athena, and the ambivalent, scheming figure of Cleisthenes, the mystery man who promises to restore the city’s people to glory and prosperity.
A young man trying to find his own voice in a cacophony of political uproar, Leander is torn between his selfish need for vengeance and his search for an ideal to believe in.
The story’s resolution involves the birth of democracy as a political system, and the fulfillment of Leander’s ambition of real citizenship.
It is at the same time a song to democracy, and a story of political realism, showing how this greatest of civic inventions came about both by the cunning, courage and willful action of a group of talented men, but also out of chance, circumstance and historical contingency.
