Review ~ Athena Grey-Eyed Goddess

Athena: Grey-Eyed Goddess (Olympians #2)

by George O'Connor
published by First Second
genre: Graphic Novel, Mythology

Summary (Goodreads): Boom! Pow! Crash!

Greek Gods as you’ve never seen them before!

The strong, larger-than-life heroes of the Olympians can summon lightning, control the sea, turn invisible, or transform themselves into any animal they choose. Superheroes? No! Greek gods. The ancient pantheon comes to explosive life in this new series where myth meets comic books. Epic battles, daring quests, and terrible monsters await readers within the pages of these books.

Volume 2, Athena: Grey-Eyed Goddess, is the tale of the goddess of wisdom and war, recounting her many adventures.

My Thoughts: I liked how the story together told how Athena's aegis came to be, in all it's different parts.
While Athena is not my favorite, there are plenty of stories to pull from. Some stories are well known other maybe not as much. I've heard the stories or her battles, etc but was not familiar with the stories telling how she got the name Pallas.
Again, I like the Greek notes and glimpses into future volumes. The next is about Hera, who I have never liked in stories, so it should be an interesting read.

Rating: 4
