Read Lore Olympus

Witness what the gods do…after dark. The friendships and the lies, the gossip and the wild parties, and of course, forbidden love. Because it turns out, the gods aren’t so different from us after all, especially when it comes to their problems. Stylish and immersive, this is one of mythology’s greatest stories — The Taking of Persephone — as it’s never been told before.

In no surprise, I decided to binge the remainder of Lore Olympus up to present 😂 Stayed up till 1:30 last night reading it then spent most of the day today – there is a lot of content over four years! Definitely did not want to wait another year and a half for it all to be published in print. But now I have to wait till the hiatus is over in April ☹️

I would guess the story is at 75% / “all hope is lost” beat so hopefully the romance will finish up at the end of this season? I could also see it being at 50% but I hope not! I don’t know if I can wait another four years for the ending 😟

Read Lore Olympus Vol 1

Read Lore Olympus (Lore Olympus, #1)

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 most well-known stories from creator Rachel Smythe. Featuring a brand-new, exclusive short story, Smythe’s original Eisner-nominated web-comic Lore Olympus brings the Greek Pantheon into the modern age with this sharply perceptive and romantic graphic novel.

I tried reading this years ago as a webcomic but I don’t like Webtoons’ interface, so I bailed in the first chapter. Now, this volume left off midway through the story so I have to decide whether to wait till July when the next volume comes out in paper or brave Webtoons 😂

A bit funny to read this so soon after Hades and Electric Idol, two other contemporary retellings about Hades and Persephone and Eros and Psyche. Katee Roberts’s books feel similar in vibe although all three reinterpretations have distinct plots.

Beautiful cover. The art seemed a smidge uneven at the start but smoothed out after the first couple chapters. Love Persephone’s pink. Hades’ blue is a bit hard to read against the black background sometimes. I’m not 100% on the font.

Love this panel for the first time Hades and Persephone interact

Didn’t expect the character to get raped 😟 It was illustrated sensitively but usually I avoid reading stories with rape 😕 But it is based on Greek mythology.
