Our Bookseller says:

“I’m a sucker for aesthetically pleasing things, so I’ll be the first to admit that the pretty colors drew me to this graphic novel, but I stayed because I love reimagined mythology and the story was just SO GOOD. It’s very easy to see why this webcomic became the top comic on Webtoon. The characters are complex and the relationships even more so. The creator doesn’t shy away from covering abusive relationships without romanticizing them — and those relationships aren’t just romantic/sexual. Trauma and healing are so thoroughly woven into the story while humanizing the divine with storylines of their own. Please give this a read (and then join me in anxiously awaiting volume two!)”

An ingenious take on the Greek Pantheon, Lore Olympus is the modern update on the story of Hades and Persephone. Follow the propulsive love story of two Greek gods, told with lavish artwork and contemporary sensibilities.
