From the Publisher:
Volume 4 of the highly acclaimed Olympians series!

Hades: Lord of the Dead tells the story of the great God of the Underworld and one of the most famous of all Greek myths: Hades' abduction of Persephone and her mother's revenge. Be prepared to see a new side of Persephone in this dynamic adaptation of the story of the creation of the seasons.

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.
Annotation:
A very different interpretation of Persephone awaits readers in this compelling version of the classic Greek myth. Here, Demeter's furious teenage daughter, Kora, is kidnapped by Hades and decides that becoming "dread queen" Persephone is exactly what she wants. With mood-filled illustrations and fascinating information in a fabulous, riveting format, this is the fourth graphic novel in the Olympians series.

Praise

"A tempestuous mother-daughter relationship makes up the centerpiece of O'Connor's latest carefully researched and simultaneously fresh and funny Olympian portrait." (starred review) 12/15/2011
