Dionysos’ talk about frogs is of course a little reference to Aristophanes’ The Frogs, but also to the modern musical adaption of the play from 2004 with songs written by Stephen Sondheim. In the original play Dionysos is mostly just annoyed by the frogs’ song, but in the modern musical the frogs are a much bigger threat.

There’s a Japanese Light Novel series called Campione! The idea behind it is that by killing what are called heretic gods (keep in mind killing one is NEARLY impossible to do) one can get their authorities or powers.

On that note I should explain what heretic gods are and it this part that MIGHT make you interested in the series. The idea is that humans try to constrain gods by putting them into roles that limit their powers wich is how the stories of gods (I should point out that gods in this concept also includes things such as heroes) change with time and sometimes different gods are combined into one or split into two etc. In order to regain their lost power these gods will manifest on earth as what is called heretic gods.

I am not sure how much is accuracy and how much is playing with similarities between myths? Probably a little of each. But if you want an example in the first book the protagonist fights Athena who is ALSO Medusa believe it or not. In any case I think you MIGHT find it interesting, and I would like to send you a pdf of the first book to get your opinion of it if that is ok?

@Ben: Sure. It sounds like it could be an interesting book. My email is liosterberg@hotmail.com.

(Since I spend most of my time drawing and planning my comic, it may take me some time to get through a whole book, though. ^^;)
