Description

I loved that the author created a modern age perspective of Hades and Persephone in a graphic novel format, it was refreshing. And because I trust her reviews and do like the retelling of what initially is a pretty chilling Greek myth (the irony of making it a love story must have the Greek gods turning in their graves and as a woman, there is some pleasure I take in that) is always a curiosity to me. Even if you don't know a whole lot about Greek mythology, I would still give this a shot, the art is wonderful, it's super adorable and hilarious, but also a beautiful and powerful story about dealing with trauma and finding your place in the world.

And I was not disappointed, it’s fantastic quality, the art work translates beautifully into the book and the story line is second to none. 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. 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. This dazzling interpretation of the classic Greek myths is as charming as it is provocative, and as witty as it is startlingly romantic. Hera: She's funny and witty and I love how protective she is of Persephone 🥺 I want more of her and Zeus since they both look so adorable in this!

This is not my first Hades/Persephone rodeo, so I know it's A Thing, but I find the whole set-up really boring. What Scott Pilgrim did for Canadian slackers, Lore Olympus does for the Greek pantheon, while being so beautiful that you know Aphrodite is just staring daggers in its direction. The main characters, Persephone and Hades, don’t have much depth to them, but their relationship is pretty adorable.

Lore Olympus opens with Persephone as the “new girl in the city” role, having just moved in to be Artemis’ roommate while Hades is this corporate executive-type just off a breakup with Minth. Persephone must learn the relationships and politics in Olympus as well as discover her own place and power.

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.

I have been following Lore Olympus on WEBTOON for ages and now that I have the first volume in had I couldnt be happier.

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. Naive sunshine girl and grumpy older guy is a hard ship to sell me on, especially since this has a pretty big age gap.
