In this five issue series we follow Hercules and his band of friends, as they sell their services to King Cotys of Thracia. The service they are to provide is simple; train him a great army from a rag-tag militia of men. Once they accomplish this goal, and help him unite all the local tribes of Thracia together they will be paid a vast amount of gold. It all seems too good to be true, and is. King Cotys has a dark agenda and before it is all over Hercules and his friends will regret ever taking this task.
