About this deal

Die unterschiedlichen Darstellungen der Götter auf äußerst humorvolle Weise haben mich besonders überzeugt. And now I can't help but think I should read more graphic novels by women to see more of this female gaze in romance with pictures. I don't understand how that happened because I read a lot of comics and graphic novels and I'd never even heard of this until the nomination. Apollo: Someone kill him already 😠🔪 he's such a piece of shit and how the hell he fucking did that to my sweet Persephone 😠😤🔪🔪 Die Die Die!

As my friend Al suggested, the art is very reminiscent of Kyle Baker with maybe a little Babs Tarr thrown in. The gods of Olympus were more or less an early soap opera and Smythe definitely delivers on the soap opera front. Ade rappresenta la triste consapevolezza che la felicità per te non arriverà mai perché gli altri ti hanno detto talmente tanto spesso che non te lo meriti, che alla fine ci hai creduto.The men have upper bodies like upside down triangles, necks as thick as their heads, and pointy noses. With vivid, irresistible art and storytelling that would make even the Muses swoon, this modern myth deftly tackles the darkness of the ancient stories while never losing its brilliant light. My 14 year old daughter is the one who recognized it, so she's actually the one I originally bought it for, but my curiosity got the better of me after I saw all the rave reviews. also minthe; hate her so much in every single one of the retellings, i really hope she doesn't cause drama in the second part just as hadespersephone are finally gonna start interacting!

Todos estos retellings de la relación de Hades y Perséfone le dan un giro tan romántico y tan único al asunto que, según la mitología original, los obligó a estar juntos, que es algo muy refrescante y que, además, llena tu vida de una tensión y unas expectativas que muy pocos libros logran darte. Debuting on Webtoon Originals in 2018, Lore Olympus captured hearts and minds with its glamorous setting, razor-sharp comedic timing, complex characters in messy relationships, and above all else, its breathtakingly beautiful visuals.

Nothing additional has been announced yet, but keep checking back here for the latest official news. Upon hearing this, Aphrodite gets Persephone very drunk and puts her in the back of Hades' car, to teach her a lesson for "smiting the goddess of beauty. Apollo is taken aback by Persephone's beauty and proceeds to be a total condescending and controlling asshole, freaking wakes her up in the middle of the night and freaken rapes her and takes pictures of it and yeah obviously I hate him. Setting Greek myth in a modern day society of fast cars and bars, Lore Olympus is comedic and playful with the well-known characters in a way that is fresh and just thoroughly entertaining. The artwork is rich and dramatic, with gorgeous colors and bold linework, each panel a dreamy treat for the eyes.

The Lore Olympus graphic novels will be available in hardcover and paperback in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom wherever books are sold. Ah, eu olhei o preço e foi convertido a nossa moeda mesmo, não foi cobrado a mais como vemos em alguns casos e eu amei isso também. It's really interesting to see the author's style change and grow over the course of the series (we're on chapter 170 online), so it's really cool.I loved that the author created a modern age perspective of Hades and Persephone in a graphic novel format, it was refreshing. The depiction of Zeus is great, depicting him as super shitty and egotistical as you’d imagine but still making him just a lot of fun as he messes with his two brothers.

So faszinieren nicht nur die Protagonisten, sondern Nebenfiguren wie zum Beispiel Hera und Eros mit ihren Hintergrundgeschichten😍. more tw/cw that i wrote down: drinking, drugging, blackmail, captivity, kidnapping, parental abuse, paparazzi/stalking, blood depiction, rape, sexual coercion, unwanted sexual pictures being taken, anxiety depiction, trauma depiction, and disassociating while something traumatic is happening. All in all, I thought this was okay, but I have to admit that I expected more from this because of all the hype it had.

The story is about the myth of Persephone's abduction by Hades but in a modern world of friendships, lies and gossips and the wild parties where we get to see the different sides of greek gods. Persephone rappresenta il conflitto tra ciò che gli altri vogliono che tu sia e ciò che desideri per te stess*, il bisogno di libertà e anche di poter sbagliare, purché a deciderlo sia tu. It’s all fast cars, high fashion, and rich folks with too much time on their hands and a complete lack of fucks to give about anyone other than themselves, and I’m here for it. So I bought the book thinking at least the artwork is different and beautiful capturing women as we see ourselves.
