  • "So these machines keep recycling the same material over and over..."

    After coming upon a desert planet with only one person living there, Sisyphus, a former King who has been punished to an eternity of hard labour, breaking metal boulders into a pit. Ulysees investigates, and Sisyphus seizes the opportunity to escape and leaving Ulysees in his place.

    This is really cool and is very futuristic, once Telemachus and Sisyphus go down the pit to find Ulysses. What Sisyphus didn't know is that machinery inside recycle the same debris, making new boulders all the time, an endless cycle. The strange thing is that the machinery is indestructable, as found out by Sisyphus when he tries to break them with a metal pipe.

    Another excellent installment of Ulysses, in which the ending is rather unexpected...
