Wherein our hero gets a little help from a friend

Editor's note: Nix Comics' Ken Eppstein curates and edits this weekly feature that highlights local cartoonists in six-strip runs. To be considered for future installments, you can email Ken at ken@nixcomics.com or hit him up on Twitter @nixcomics. I like when the cartoonists for Sketch in the City get sneaky with cultural references. So far Celestian Waltz's Heraclea strip has been a gender-flipped riff on Hercules myths. This episode he compares his mythic protagonist to a powerful existing female icon by dropping a Sonny & Cher "The Beat Goes On" reference! Did you miss the first two strips? Here's one and two.
