In this volume, O'Connor tells the story of the great God of the Underworld and one of the most famous of all Greek myths: Hades' abduction of Persephone and her mother's revenge.
George O'Connor is an author, illustrator and cartoonist. His first graphic novel, "Journey Into Mohawk Country," used as its sole text the actual historical journal of the seventeenth-century Dutch trader Harmen Meyndertsz van den Bogaert, and told the true story of how New York almost wasn't. He followed that up with "Ball Peen Hammer," the first graphic novel written by playwright Adam Rapp, a dark, dystopian view of a society's collapse. Now he has brought his attention to Olympians, an ongoing series retelling the classic Greek myths in comics form. In addition to his graphic novel career, O'Connor has published several children's picture books, including the "New York Times" best-selling "Kapow," "Sally and the Some-Thing," and "Uncle Bigfoot." He lives in Brooklyn, NY.
