The series sees Herc on the path to self-realization as he tries to become the hero he always thought he was. Along the way, he'll encounter several modern incarnations of creatures and characters from ancient Greek mythology.
"This is not a grim and gritty take on Hercules," Abnett says. "It's going to be triumphantly celebratory of everything that Hercules has ever been, but it is him cutting back to basics and going, 'Right, I need to get my act together again and prove that I'm a serious warrior and hero.'"
