About the book
Polis: Trial of Socrates is the first part in a three-part series that follows the events that eventually lead to the trial, and excecution, of the great Greek Philosopher, Socrates.
After their defeat at the hands of the Spartans during the Peloponnesian War, Athens’ rulers were disposed into exile, and a puppet government known as the “Thirty Tyrants” ruled in their place.
In this, Part I, a young Plato must determine where his true allegiances lie, while Socrates’ dangerous ideas threaten to get him in trouble with those in power.
About the Artist
Daniel Becker has been studying and producing artwork most of his life, but only in the last 10-years has he been actively creating comic books, his favourite medium of story telling.
In 2015, he set up Invisible Ink Studio, and created the ongoing series “Master & Apprentice”, his first solo project as both writer and artist.
Since then, he’s worked with a few other writers as the lead artist for “Tinsuits” (D.A. Hogg) and the new graphic novel “Trial of Socrates. Part I” (Jave Galt-Miller). Though he was born and raised in the southwest United States (New Mexico), he now enjoys living in Canberra.
