You know, I can think of a lot of funny things in mythology - all the bickering and arguing, Edith Hamilton's really bad dialogue in the Cupid and Psyche story, Prometheus getting his liver eaten out every day.  Ha!  That Prometheus...

I ran across this web comic strip today about Prometheus.  You would think that a strip where a guy is tied to a rock every strip would only last about 5 strips - 10 if you're clever.  However, this strip has gone on a long time!  I started reading them through and thought they were pretty funny.  

The interaction between the eagle and Prometheus is like something out of a Peanuts strip.  You also have the wife, angry for him not being around, the son who feels his dad has abandoned him, and the protesters who come to protest against his imprisonment every so often, but never really help him.

My review - 4 lightning bolts out of 5.

I highly encourage you to check out the web comic home page at
