Cretian Cow by Gengoroh Tagame


For the first time in English, master Gengoroh Tagame’s unique science fictive take on the myth of the Greek Minotaur, originally published in Nikutaiha magazine (2010).

When Theseus of Athens sets sail for Crete to defeat the legendary half-man, half-bull Minotaur, a creature who regularly feasts on the most beautiful Athenian youths, he has no idea what he’s going up against. According to Greek legend, the Minotaur is the cross-bred offspring of PasiphaĆ«, queen of Crete, and a snow-white bull. In one of gay manga master Gengoroh Tagame’s most sensational stories, Theseus learns the true origins of the Minotaur with unfathomable consequences.
