We’re delighted to share with you this exciting new boxed set edition of George O’Connor’s Olympians books!

George O’Connor is a guy who’s excited about Greek mythology.  Myths were some of the first books he ever read . . . along with superhero stories, and he combines both those two storytelling forms in his Olympians graphic novels.  George somehow manages to take these ancient historical (or, um, pseudo-historical) tales and bring new life to them, while at the same time doing extensive research and honoring that within the story.

Every time George comes out with a new volume, we’re super-impressed — and we learn new things, which is impressive in and of itself, because we’re huge mythology geeks as well over here at First Second.

If you have yet to pick up the Olympians books, now’s your chance — the first six volumes fit nicely into this attractive (and heavy!) box, and it comes with a giant poster!

(We note: it also makes an excellent holiday gift for any young mythology fans you know.)

Happy reading to you all!
