Reviewed at In O'Connor's fourth installment of the Olympians graphic novel series starts with the journey into the Underworld after death but reveals itself to be about the myth of Persephone's abduction and the conseuences that follow such This graphic novel is not only about Hades but about Demeter and Persephone as well What I Think Persephone's myth is one of my favorites I love how clever the Greeks were to have such an elaborate tale to account for the seasons that we all experience And saying that this graphic novel is by far my favorite version of the story I am such a fan of George O'Connor's style of art and his storytelling capabilities as I've loved the two other Olympian graphic novels that I've read and I love this one as well The way that O'Connor takes the myth stays true to it but adds his own interpretation of aspects is what makes his graphic novels uniue For example the thought that went into why he made Persephone a little dark in this story is so thought provoking Also as I've said in my reviews of Zeus and Athena I love the Greek notes drawings bibliography recommended readings discussion uestions and author's notes at the end of all of his graphic novels they make them accessible for not only children teens but teachers to use in their classroom Thank you Netgalley and First Second for access to this title

George OConnor Å 9 Summary

Hades Lord of the DeadS romance and not a few huge explosions O'Connor's vibrant kinetic art brings ancient tales to undeniable life in a perfect fusion of super hero aesthetics and ancient Greek mythology This title has Common Core connections Hades is a Kirkus Reviews Best Children's Book of 201. This graphic novel brings a fresh look to the myth of Hades and Persephone Much of the dialogue is almost lyrical in a way that I can easily imagine ancient Greek gods would speak The artwork is also very nice and Persephone's physical appearance design was different she looks like a Goth girl instead of a Goddess of Spring but that was cool Her relationship with Hades is also eual he treats her with respect I would have liked for this graphic novel to be longer but overall it still is a great book In the back you have information and factoids about Hades Persephone and Demeter as well as research notes and author's commentary Really a nice package
