Zeus: King of the Gods (Olympians)

Zeus: King of the Gods (Olympians) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

George O'Connor is a Greek mythology buff and a classic superhero comics fan, and he's out to remind us how much our pantheon of superheroes (Superman, Batman, the X-Men, etc) owes to mankind's ORIGINAL superheroes: the Greek pantheon. In Olympians, O'Connor draws from primary documents to reconstruct and retell classic Greek myths. But these stories aren't sedate, scholarly works. They're action-packed, fast-paced, high-drama adventures, with monsters, 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. Volume 1 of Olympians, Zeus: King of the Gods, introduces readers to the ruler of the Olympian Pantheon, telling his story from his boyhood to his ascendance to supreme power.

Review:

"Exciting, accurate, and intense, it's bound to be instantly beloved of kids, all thanks to its classic comic inspirations." School Library Journal

About the Author

George O'Connor's cover — as a mild-mannered clerk in one of Gotham's most beloved children's bookstores — was completely blown when his first picture book, KAPOW!, was exploded onto the scene. Forced to leave the bookselling world behind, he now spends even more time in his secret Brooklyn, New York, hideout — where he uses his amazing artistic powers to strike fear in the hearts of bad guys everywhere!
