Dionysus (Bacchus)'s Wall


Party in the woods tonight!





I knew I taught you right.

How did I end up with the most beautiful wife in the world?


Awww, shucks.


Good thing I abandoned you on that island after all, huh Ariadne?


You know, Theseus, if you weren't already dead...

I'm still in pain from where Hera had me dismembered. Not cool.

Don't be such a baby.

Um, newsflash: I was a baby when you had those Titans tear me apart.


You, complaining about dismemberment? You're the one who had my own mother rip my head off.

Yeah, what he said! Tell him, Pentheus.

Whatever, Hera. You put snakes in my crib.

Solidarity, brother. Thanks for having my back, Heracles.

You both better watch your backs.

Don't take your anger out on us - it's not our fault Zeus cheats on you.

Okay, this conversation is officially over.

Great weekend with Ariadne in Napa Valley.


I can't believe we squeezed in that many wineries!

Who do you think you're dealing with here?

Thinking about a little Indian vacation...



Hmm, I'm feeling unwelcome. What happened the last time I felt unwelcome? Does anyone remember?


Please no. Please, please no.


Dionysus, behave yourself.

Shout out to my Maenads!


What about us Satyrs?

Come on, now. You my boyz.


Don't steal our thunder!


Whatever, we deserve it.

People, people... how about we all have a Bacchanal tonight? I always say, a little Bacchanal can solve any problem.

And create a million more...

Is it just me, or is Broadway super lame?

Yeah, but what can you do? It's not like they can sacrifice a goat before plays like they used to at the Theater Dionysus.

I really don't see why not.

Be sensible, man.

Be sensible? Now that sounds super lame.
