Perseus, 2015.
Perseus process and development, 2015.

Perseus is hardly a great guy, and this is made abundantly clear in his killing of Medusa – a woman violated by a god, and who was cursed and ostracized as a result.

I enjoy any retelling that flips Perseus' narrative away from Medusa being an undeniable monster, and rather someone unwillingly dragged into the petty dealings of higher beings.  I wanted to capture the moment of sadness before her death – she knows Perseus is there, she knows there's nothing she can do.  Not resigned, but exhausted.
