Staff Reviews


I’ve been reading the Olympians series since its inception nearly a decade ago and continue to love it! If you’re a fan (or know a fan) of Rick Riordan’s books, graphic novels, and/or Greek mythology, this series—each focusing on a god living on Mount Olympus—is for you (them). This latest installment about gifted metalsmith Hephaistos is a reflection on learning to see your own worth, even when those around you don’t.

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!

Thrown from Mount Olympus as a newborn and caught by Thetis and Eurynome, who raised him on the island of Lemnos, Hephaistos had an aptitude for creating beautiful objects from a very young age. Despite his rejection from Olympus, he swallowed his anger and spent his days perfecting his craft. His exquisitely forged gifts and weapons earned him back his seat in the heavens, but he was not treated as an equal—his brothers and sisters looked down at him for his lame leg, and even his own wife, Aphrodite, was disloyal. Witness Hephaistos’ wrath in God of Fire as he creates a plan that’ll win him the respect he deserves.

About the Author

His first graphic novel, Journey into Mohawk Country, pushed the boundaries of the genre, using as its sole text the actual historical journal of the seventeenth-century Dutch trader Harmen Meyndertsz van den Bogaert. He also illustrated acclaimed playwright Adam Rapp’s Ball Peen Hammer. He teamed up with writer Daniel G. Newman on Unrig: How to Fix Our Broken Democracy, the first volume in the World Citizen Comics series.
