Book: O`Connor George «Zeus. King of the Gods»

Zeus. King of the Gods

Производитель: "First Second"

Серия: "Olympians"

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.
