Aphrodite

Goddess of Love

Olympians (Volume 6)

George O'Connor

First Second

In volume six of Olympians, graphic novel author/artist George O'Connor turns the spotlight on Aphrodite, the goddess of love. Look for the same thoroughly researched and wonderfully accessible comics storytelling as O'Connor tackles the story of the Aphrodite from her dramatic birth (emerging from sea-foam) to her role in the Trojan War.

O'Connor has outdone himself with this volume: the story is riveting and the artwork is beyond compare. Greek mythology has never been so vivid!

REVIEWS

Praise for Aphrodite

"The sixth book in the series turns its attention to the goddess of love and beauty . . . The illustrations perfectly match the text; each character gets a sleek, modern makeover while still remaining true to the clothing of the time period, and the use of soft, pastel colors set a lighthearted tone." - School Library Journal

"This neatly nuanced take on Aphrodite shows respect for the ultrafeminine heroine." - Kirkus
 
Praise for Olympians:
 
“Definitely worth a visit for any young demigod.” —Rick Riordan
 
“Readers . . . will be delighted with this debut title in the Olympians series of graphic novels.” —BCCB, starred review
