Mythical GN

HADES by George O'Connor (First Second, January 2012) is the latest entry in his series of graphic novels about Greek gods and goddesses. While Hades is the title character, this GN also tells of Perspehone the daughter of Zeus and Demeter. Perspehone is abducted by Hades who hopes she will fall in love with him and remain in the Underworld. O'Connor's simple retelling of the stories of the gods and goddesses brings mythology to life for readers. He is able to deftly weave together the various threads that connect the gods and goddesses of Olympus. <625>
