The Amazons of Crete

Issue Number: 5437

1941, Crete. Men wage war on the largest of the Greek Islands, leaving it in ruins. But Cretan women are strong. Forged in the same fire as the ancient Amazons who fought off armies of invaders on Crete before them, these women wouldn’t crumble but rise to meet adversity with their faces to the sun. Like the Furies, sisters and goddesses of vengeance, one band of Cretan woman would punish men for their crimes against Crete — with an arrow for every Nazi who dared set foot on their island!
