If you've gotten burnt out on the powers of the Greek gods a la Rick Riordan, this paean to the powers of aggro may be for you. It's not unlike Gods Behaving Badly, but funnier and rather less sordid. ( )

Jason Derry is born and bred to be a hero, but he doesn't suspect that his destiny is to save the world from the gods.

Fantastical blending of Classical mythology and modern suburban life, Jason Derry's trials and tribulations as the son of Jupiter. ( )

A less funnny and more confusing version of Terry Pratchett's Small Gods. ( )
  SashaM | Apr 20, 2016 |
Jason Derry, the son of Jupiter and Mrs Derry at No. 17, is caught up in the struggle between the Olympian gods (now living in the Sun) and the Titans Gelos and Prometheus and will have to choose between a world without laughter or a world without the gods, which might be a world that's about to end.

Funny in parts, in others it was probably funnier in the early 1990s. ( )
