Find out how the brainy and brawny cast of real-life characters who fought over and ruled ancient Greece measure up against each other. From brave Spartan warriors to pondering philosophers, some were courageous, some were clever, and some were absolutely rotten. Full-color comic illustrations are splashed throughout the witty, bite-sized chunks of fact-filled text.
