Praise for the Olympians series:

"O’Connor, a self-proclaimed Greek mythology obsessive, has done something wonderful: He’s turned the tales of those adventuresome, rascally, feuding, power-mad Greek gods into a nifty set of gorgeously drawn, well-researched graphic novels that kids go nuts for."—New York Times


Praise for Olympians: Athena:

“While less unified in narrative structure than the previous book, this nevertheless shares its strengths-a balance between heightened narration and colloquial dialogue, superb graphic storytelling with extended wordless action sequences, energetic backmatter and a palpable fondness for the subject matter. Up next? Hera.” —Kirkus Reviews

“The author's affection for his subject is evident in a chatty note. Profiles of major characters, notes, and discussion questions appear in addition to the usual back matter. An exceptional graphic novel.” —Paula Willey, Baltimore County Public Library, Towson, MD, School Library Journal
