Chapter: English Literature During The Middle Ages
So, by the way - Brutus of Troy was only (if memory serves) around fifteen years old when he led a swarthy band of pirates out into the ocean to find a new home. Don't ask me how a teenage boy convinced a bunch of sailors to crew a ship under him. These ancient myths tend to make more sense if you just completely ignore the logic gaffs.
This is where Brutus' adventures end as far as our comics are concerned. Should you wish to know the exciting conclusion to his tale, let it be known that he listened to the goddess Diana, discovered Britain, and lived happily ever after. There, wasn't that a thrilling tale? Oh, and halfway through his journey to Britain, his ship had a close encounter with the Sirens. *cough*RIPOFF*cough*
