On the sordid stretch of london known as Greek Street, the beautiful bodies come and go but the old dance never ends. Even as the players change, the timeless stories still barrel toward their bloody climaxes, and dark prophecies don't just foretell the future - they create it. Behind the girls, gangs and glamour lurks a doom that's hard to predict but impossible to avoid. Within its grasp, a man running from sights he can never unsee is caught up in an odyssey of sex and slaughter; a cop on the trail of a monster gets lost in a labyrinth of lies; a lord's awful appetites consume the only people he truly loves; and a girl who can glimpse things to come envisions a bloody house of death...

Cassandra Complex is the second volume of reprints of the Greek Street comic book series. This collection contains issues #6 to 11.

A shocking new drama unfolds on the blood, tear and fluid stained stage of Greek Street as disturbed mother-killer Eddie and aristo visionary Sandy try to get to London where Dedalus investigates a suicide and an urban witch tries to get through to a monster. This is a sexy blend of crime, supernatural and soap opera, using characters and plots that are simultaneously familiar yet intensely brand-new.

This is not a series you can just jump into, so if you start here you'll not have a clue what on earth is going on. This is a series that is building nicely and is certainly worth checking out.
