Their first mistake was to assume he would give up... Heracles had it all: a beautiful home, a loving family and a reputation as a great soldier. Unfortunately, due to his success, he became a victim of jealousy. As the result of a vicious plot, Heracles was hypnotised into committing a terrible crime. Devastated by his actions, he wandered aimlessly, immersed in depression. Finally, he found some solace in the fact that he could atone for his sins by completing ten impossible tasks. The creator of these tasks was Eurystheus, Heracles's nemesis, who was constantly angered by his refusal to accept defeat. As a man of action, Heracles never complained and never backed down; he simply got on with the job at hand. Follow Heracles as he strives to complete his tasks by battling a giant lion, fighting monstrous birds and tricking someone into carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders.

It is the year 2137... The world has been divided into the western hemisphere and the forbidden lands of the eastern hemisphere. No one knows better than Jefferson Turck, a lieutenant in the Pan-American Navy, that entering the eastern hemisphere is against the law. However, during a terrible storm at sea, Turck is forced to take refuge in a land located within the forbidden zone. In this alternative view of world history, Europe has been isolated from the rest of the world for over two centuries and has spiraled down into primitive barbarism. Turck is shocked by the unforgiving lands he finds himself in, and by the fearsome beasts that inhabit them. This is the story of Turck's adventures in the land that was all but lost to the world.

It was an obsession that would destroy them all... On a cold December night, a young man called Ishmael rents a room at an inn in Massachusetts. He has come from Manhattan to the north-east of America to sign up for a whaling expedition. Later that same night, as Ishmael is sleeping, a heavily tattooed man wielding a blade enters his room. This chance meeting is just the start of what will become the greatest adventure of his life. The next day, Ishmael joins the crew of a ship known as the Pequod. He is approached by a man dressed in rags who warns him that, if he sails under the command of Captain Ahab, he may never come back. Undaunted, Ishmael returns early the next morning and leaves for the high seas. For the crew of the Pequod, their voyage is one of monetary gain. For Captain Ahab, however, it is a mission driven by hatred, revenge, and his growing obsession with the greatest creature of the sea.

This time, though, a calamitous shipwreck wipes out the whole of the crew and leaves Crusoe alone on a seemingly deserted island. How is it possible for one man to survive in such a situation? Will he manage to leave or be forced to remain on the island?
