Description

This sturdy boxed set includes paperback editions of the first six Olympians books by multiple New York Times–bestselling author/illustrator George O'Connor.

By Zeus, it's Athena, Hera, Hades, Poseidon, and Aphrodite!

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 fantasy 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.

Collectors will adore this packaged set, with lots of new artwork and a free poster featuring the complete Olympians family tree. Holy Hera!

Aphrodite Almighty, what a value!
