Blood of Zeus tells the story of a poor young Greek man named Heron, as he learns that he is the son of Zeus (as the series' title suggests) and how he copes with the knowledge of his heritage. The entire first season is handled by Charles Parlapanides, Vlas Parlapanides, and Shaunt Nigoghossian. The Parlapanides brothers, the creators of the series, also serve as both executive producers and writers for every episode of the season while Nigoghossian handles directorial duties for all eight episodes. All three members of this small creative team working together produced a quality adult animated series. Though, while at times the show can follow the classical hero’s journey too closely, it’s a fun action-packed adventure.
