Summary

Summary

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

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! This title has Common Core connections.

This latest volume in the series of graphic novels profiles the beautiful Greek goddess of love. Like the prior volumes, this book injects the mythology with an accessible modern sensibility through its colorful, action-packed graphic storytelling. Author's notes, "G(r)eek notes," and character bios provide insight into the myths and the author's creative development process. Reading list. Bib. (c) Copyright 2014.
