Hades Lord of the Dead

Nothing ever changes in the land of the dead Deep in this hidden Kingdom beneath the earth co George O Connor creates another stellar installment in his Olympians graphic novel series with Hades Lord of the Dead Opening with a description of what you might find as you enter the Underworld the story shifts into a dramatic retelling of my favorite Greek myth the Abduction of Persephone While his work is based on research from classic and contemporary texts I like that O Connor feels confident in re interpreting the myths and adding clever references to other stories and popular culture for example Hermes returns Persephone to Olympus with the announcement Special Delivery a nod to his appearance as the FTD symbol with Persephone the Goddess of Spring as his floral package One of my favorite parts was the panel recap in the back that explains the research and his thought processes for many panelsHow long until the next one

Untless spirits await the end of time Hades the lord of this dire realm Waits with them until This was an advanced copy that I got from Netgalley I thought it was a well done and well researched graphic novel on the underworld Hades Persephone and Demeter The story shows what happens to a person when they die according to Greek mythology and then continues with the myth about Persephone originally called Kore and how she ended up as ueen of the Underworld after she was abducted by Hades I liked that the author used multiple viewpoints of all three characters especially Persephone and not just that of the men in the story as myths have a tendency to do I liked that it would appeal to both boys and girls For me it was the little things in this graphic novel that made it great It was the way the author describes the punishments of certain Greeks in Tartaros the fact that he includes Hercules mortal half of his soul is in the underworld while his immortal part is in Olympus the way Kore and her mother Demeter argue like they would nowadays which makes the myth modern and easier for kidsteens to understand how Hades created violets especially for Kore and how Kore decided that being the ueen of the Underworld isn t such a bad gig and changes her name and reinvents herself I had no idea that Zeus had sanctioned Hades to take Kore I enjoyed the interaction between Hermes and Hekate and didn t know that in some stories they were married I liked the profiles of the gods and goddesses and the Greek notes at the end of the book as well as the recommended reading lists Now I can t wait to read the other graphic novels in the author s Olympian series Recommended for ages 10
