Olympians: Poseidon: Earth Shaker (Paperback)

George O’Connor’s vibrant, kinetic art brings ancient tales to life in the New York Times Bestselling series The Olympians. This fusion of super-hero aesthetics and ancient Greek mythology is perfect for fans of Percy Jackson!

Poseidon, the god of the ocean, is wrathful as a tidal wave and sullen as the ocean’s stormy depths. But he cares tenderly for his children, monstrous though they are. The winged horse Pegasus, the merman Triton, the one-eyed giant Polyphemus, and perhaps the worst of them all, the hero Theseus…Mighty Poseidon loves his sons and woe betide those who cross the children of the ocean god.

George O'Connor is the New York Times–bestselling author of Olympians, the series of graphic novels featuring the tragic, dramatic, and epic lives of the Greek Pantheon and its counterpart featuring the Norse Gods, the series Asgardians. His first graphic novel, Journey into Mohawk Country, pushed the boundaries of the genre, using as its sole text the actual historical journal of the seventeenth-century Dutch trader Harmen Meyndertsz van den Bogaert. He also illustrated acclaimed playwright Adam Rapp’s Ball Peen Hammer. He teamed up with writer Daniel G. Newman on Unrig: How to Fix Our Broken Democracy, the first volume in the World Citizen Comics series. George is also the creator of popular picture books such as the New York Times–bestselling Kapow! and If I Had a Triceratops. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.

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: Poseidon:

“This is a compelling page-turner for readers unfamiliar with the myths as well as for kids who love mythology but would like to see it brought to life in a new way.” —School Library Journal, starred review
