Review: Zeus: King of the Gods by George O'Connor

The first four graphic books in the Olympians series by George O'Connor are very popular in my library right now. Zeus, Athena, Hera, and Hades are the Gods highlighted in the first four books of this series by a masterful illustrator, George O'Connor. Always fascinated by Greek mythology, but by no means a scholar, a refresher course seemed like a good idea so I picked up Zeus, the first book in the series.  It not only provided a review but also taught me a lot about the stories that I never knew before.

Take a look at George O'Connor's page for examples of his illustrations. I can't wait to make my way through the whole series.
