Webcomic Profile: Hephaestus


(a retelling of Greek mythology, with more than likely deviation from the original myths)

While other gods on Mt. Olympus are known to be beautiful and laid back, Hephaestus is more humble in appearance and works his hands to the bone. However, that is not to say that the god of crafting and fire doesn't have any interesting tales about himself...

<<Current Chapter>>
8) Prometheus Bound: Hephaestus reflects on the binding of Prometheus, his one time mentor.

Hephaestus is more of an Earth, Wind and Fire fan while Ares is more of a Village Person guy.

Sorry for the lack of update this long. As I am starting my Master more seriously, I cannot promise a schedule for updating. Please bear with me as I try to update as often as I can.

Good to see that Pythia/Oracle is still around but she is missing her Apollo...

@Hyper Shadow:
You have to realize something about Zeus for his decisions to make sense. While in this comic he seems at the very least driven by reason, in the original mythos Zeus just kind of dicked about, and broke shit when things went poorly for him.

@Hyper Shadow (Chapter 8, Page 9): It could mean that he would only destroy all the Greek humans. It could mean that he wants to offend the other gods who would find it more of an annoyance over anything. After all, the Divine care nothing for mortals save for this guy Prometheus.

Wait wasn't it already established that there are humans that worship other pantheons and that those pantheons exist in their regions. Zeus isn't stupid enough to go kill humans in those regions is he? I doubt even Olympus can withstand a war from so many other deities.

Sorry for being so late, been starting to do stuff for my Master of Social Work, which may incidentally make it so I may have spells of disappearing from updates. If that happens, I apologize in advance.
