Hades: Lord of the Dead tells the story of the great God of the Underworld and one of the most famous of all Greek myths: Hades abduction of Persephone and her mothers revenge. Be prepared to see a new side of Persephone in this dynamic adaptation of the story of the creation of the seasons.
In Olympians, OConnor draws from primary documents to reconstruct and retell classic Greek myths. But these stories arent sedate, scholarly works. Theyre action-packed, fast-paced, high-drama adventures with monsters, romance, and not a few huge explosions. OConnors vibrant, kinetic art brings ancient tales to undeniable life in a perfect fusion of super-hero aesthetics and ancient Greek mythology.
