About the Author

George O'Connor is an author, illustrator and cartoonist. His first graphic novel, Journey Into Mohawk Country, used as its sole text the actual historical journal of the seventeenth-century Dutch trader Harmen Meyndertsz van den Bogaert, and told the true story of how New York almost wasn't. He followed that up with Ball Peen Hammer, the first graphic novel written by playwright Adam Rapp, a dark, dystopian view of a society's collapse. Now he has brought his attention to Olympians, an ongoing series retelling the classic Greek myths in comics form. In addition to his graphic novel career, O'Connor has published several children's picture books, including the New York Times best-selling Kapow, Sally and the Some-Thing, and Uncle Bigfoot. He lives in Brooklyn, NY.

Reviews

"An outstanding addition to a first-rate series." --Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

"O'Connor's brand of classical mythology for modern sensibilities serves as a good introduction to the gods and settings of the Greek myths." --Publishers Weekly

"The writing is well done, the story line is interesting and moves quickly, the characters are colorful, and this adventure is exciting." --Children's Literature

"O'Connor's artwork remains as strong as ever, especially in the glorious illustrations of the underworld." --VOYA

"Atmospheric, with descriptions and images of the Underworld that are so captivating that readers will pore over those pages again and again. O'Connor's illustrations, filled with lots of color and haunting illuminations, are well suited to this exciting story and will attract even the most reluctant readers." --School Library Journal
