About this deal

For information about non-English translated editions, check with your local book retailer for availability. These are the gods of Olympus here, so while it is playful and fairly lighthearted it is also dark and filled with toxic interactions, manipulations and assaults—as one would probably expect but heads up. 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. In jeder Zeichnung liegt so viel Gefühl, Charakter und Niedlichkeit, dass es auf mich gewirkt und in mir ganz viel Freude ausgelöst hat. Originally released as a webtoon (read it here), this graphic novel compiles the first 25 episodes in full color to show off Smythe’s wonderfully stylized artwork.

I knew I would love Lore Olympus, and I've known it for ages, but I've been waiting for the bind-up to come out because I really struggle with focusing on webtoons. It’s all very energetic and entertaining, and the modern setting opens up a lot of fun with the characters all having iphones and instagrams which quickly spread all the gossip.La mayoría del tiempo que he estado leyendo este primer volumen de Lore Olympus me encontraba completamente desubicado, como si me faltara información. Eu simplesmente amo essa história, já acompanho ela no WEBTOON a anos e quando saiu o livro físico não poderia perder a oportunidade. Again, this may be due to the fact that this has been miscategorized as something someone who enjoys regular comics would want to read. I hated how trapped Persephone feels and that she needs to prove herself 😭 She deserves the world and Hades!

So I bought the book thinking at least the artwork is different and beautiful capturing women as we see ourselves. Persephone wakes up very confused and embarrassed, but Hades explains the situation to her and she relaxes a little bit more. I've been following this webtoon since it's inception and am utterly devoted to its creative interpretation of the classic myths. 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. Will brush up on my myths before the next volume comes out and hopefully I'll enjoy that one a bit more!Available in hardcover and paperback wherever books are sold in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Her mother, Demeter, has raised her in the mortal realm, but after Persephone promises to train as a sacred virgin, she's allowed to live in the fast-moving, glamorous world of the gods. If reading about mythological god clowning around while spreading gossip and scandal is intriguing to you, Lore Olympus by Rachel Smythe is a must.

Not sure what it is, because there are a million and one webtoons I would love to read, but I never seem to get around to them until they're printed in a bound format like this. The artwork is rich and dramatic, with gorgeous colors and bold linework, each panel a dreamy treat for the eyes. The color palettes are great, contrasting Persephone’s pink with Hades and the underworld all in blacks and blues and a fun watercolor-splash look to the backgrounds.

When her roommate, Artemis, takes her to a party, her entire life changes: she ends up meeting Hades and feels an immediate spark with the charming yet misunderstood ruler of the Underworld. Beautiful and dramatic, I couldn't put this book down and just had to carry on reading on webtoon after finishing it. Psyche: I liked her but I'm so scared for her and Eros's story and I know they got their happy ending but the way they got it was just 😭 and I'm not ready for it.

Stylish and immersive, this is one of mythology’s greatest stories -- The Taking of Persephone -- as it’s never been told before. The plot is so painfully simple it’s barely even there, but there are definitely a few good scenes in here. Scandalous gossip, wild parties, and forbidden love - witness what the gods do after dark in this stylish and contemporary reimagining of one of mythology's best-known stories. This full-color boxed set contains Lore Olympus: Volume One, Lore Olympus: Volume Two, and Lore Olympus: Volume Three, the first three hardcover volumes in Smythe’s original Eisner Award-winning webcomic that brings Greek mythology into the modern age through sharply perceptive and romantic graphic novels. I started this last year but couldn't read more than 5 episodes and thanks to Lila (you're the best🥹🫶) whose review made me try this again and Lila guess what?Because it turns out, the gods aren’t so different from us after all, especially when it comes to their problems.
