Zeus: King of the Gods (Olympians) - Paperback

2010, ISBN: 1596434317

ID: 14220057429

[EAN: 9781596434318], Neubuch, [PU: First Second], Children's Fiction|Comics & Graphic Novels|General, Children's Fiction|Science Fiction, Fantasy, Magic, Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Review in 1/1 Booklist O'Connor unveils his new Olympians graphic-novel series with this story of the daddy of Greek gods. Most immediately striking about this, aside from the exciting artwork, is the care O'Connor takes to visualize the creation myth that begins with Gaea creating and taking as a husband the sky, Ouranos. Their childrenthe Titans and other proto-Olympian entitiesare often neglected or at best murkily covered, but here they're vividly portrayed with all the magnificence of their beyond-good-and-evil power. After this breathtaking and lengthy sequence, Zeus enters the scene to grow from a feisty nymph-needling youth to a lightning boltwielding avenger. The extended, earth-shattering battle he wages with his father, Kronos, takes up the bulk of the story, delivering page after page of cataclysmic blows with the sensibility and hyperkinetic pacing of a literary superhero comic. While O'Connor includes a generous bounty of bonus materials to gratify myth hounds, this series could well become the initiation point for a new cadre of acolytes. New volumes should come quickly, with Athena''s book due in April 2010. Review in 2/1 Publisher's Weekly O''Connor ( Kapow! ; Journey into Mohawk Country ) embarks on a new project: a series of graphic novels for young readers about Greek mythology ( Athena: Grey-Eyed Goddess follows in April, with Hera and Hades in the pipeline). While the D''Aulaires'' Book of Greek Myths is the gold standard for illustrated introductions to Greek mythology, O''Connor offers a modern take with a new view of these "original superhero stories" with gritty yet heroic art and spare prose that lets the myths speak for themselves. The story is the one most schoolchildren knowthe Titans created Zeus and Hera, as well as the Cyclopes, and adventure ensuedbut O''Connor brings the young gods to life with memorable compositions and attention to detail (childlike fear on Hera''s face as she navigates the treacherous new world, a bat screeching away as Zeus confronts the Cyclopes). Back matter includes notes, a bibliography, a list of recommended books for further reading, and discussion questions for readers, making it attractive for teachers and librarians for its information and depth of research. But that shouldn''t stop tweens from enjoying the story. Ages 912. (Jan.) Review in 12/15 Kirkus Reviews An energetic graphic series on classical mythology debuts with the origin story of the Big Cheese Olympian, Zeus. Appropriately heightened, stately language narrates the joining of Gaea with Ouranos, the Titans' rise to power and Kronos's devouring of all his children but oneZeus (pictured with lots of muscles and, oddly enough, Nordic blond good looks). In contrast (and in the same spirit as G. Brian Karas's rendition of the King of the Gods's story for younger readers, Young Zeus, also 2009), speech-balloon dialogue is decidedly colloquial: "Hey Metis. How about a kiss?" O'Connor pulls out the comic-book stops in his artwork, consciously echoing superteam portraits of yore in his line-up of angry Olympians and allowing the Clash of the Titans to extend over pages and pages of hugely satisfying sound effects, crumbled mountains and thrown lighting bolts. He plants clues in both text and images to stories to be developed as the series continues. Extensive backmatter includes an author's note, full-page character profiles, "G[r]eek Notes," discussion questions ("Has your dad ever tried to eat you?") and a bibliography. Holy Cyclopes, here's a keeper. (Graphic mythology. 8-14) Review in 12/15 Shelf Awareness Here it is! The book you''ve been waiting for: the first in a 12-book graphic novel series about the Greek gods, called Olympians . And it''s just in time to satiate the kids waiting anxiously for The Lightning Thief ''s movie release (and aimed at the same age readers).

ISBN: 9781596434318

ID: 7319770

George O'Connor is a Greek mythology buff and a classic superhero comics fan, and he's out to remind us how much our pantheon of superheroes (Superman, Batman, the X-Men, etc) owes to mankind's ORIGINAL superheroes: the Greek pantheon. In OLYMPIANS, O'Connor draws from primary documents to reconstruct and retell classic Greek myths. But these stories aren't sedate, scholarly works. They're action-packed, fast-paced, high-drama adventures, with monsters, romance, and not a few huge explosions. O'Connor's vibrant, kinetic art brings ancient tales to undeniable life, in a perfect fusion of super-hero aesthetics and ancient Greek mythology.  Volume 1 of OLYMPIANS, ZEUS: King OF THE GODS, introduces readers to the ruler of the Olympian Pantheon, telling his story from his boyhood to his ascendance to supreme power.  Zeus: King of the Gods O'Connor, George, First Second
