Olympians

Olympians Graphic Novels by George O’Connor ...

In OLYMPIANS, author & illustrator George 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.

Gr 4–8—The images are dynamic, with the use of different perspectives creating drama and suspense. Complementing the visuals, the writing is exciting yet lyrical, evoking the poetry of the original legends. Some stories contain violence, and there is brief nudity but nothing explicit The back matter is particularly noteworthy: in "Greek Notes," O'Connor provides insightful—and witty—commentary, and his bibliography will intrigue readers curious about the source material. Though the author is true to the original tales (never shying away from their less savory elements), he injects a feminist perspective. VERDICT: An excellent addition to graphic novel and Greek mythology collections. - School Library Journal
