Description


George O’Connor’s vibrant, kinetic art brings ancient tales to life in the New York Times Bestselling series The Olympians. This fusion of super-hero aesthetics and ancient Greek mythology is perfect for fans of Percy Jackson!

Nothing ever changes in the land of the dead. Deep in this hidden kingdom beneath the earth, countless spirits await the end of time. Hades, the lord of this dire realm, waits with them…until one day, the Lord of the Dead takes a wife. Or tries to, anyway.

And then all Hades breaks loose.

Praise For…


Praise for the Olympians series:

"O’Connor, a self-proclaimed Greek mythology obsessive, has done something wonderful: He’s turned the tales of those adventuresome, rascally, feuding, power-mad Greek gods into a nifty set of gorgeously drawn, well-researched graphic novels that kids go nuts for."—New York Times
