Olympians Volume 12 Dionysos The New God GN – First Second Books concludes the saga of the Olympians with this final volume. Hestia, the first Olympian, takes the stage as she tells the tales of the last Olympian Dionysos, the god of wine and madness. From her seat in the center of Mt. Olympus, Hestia relates the rise of Dionysos, from his birth to a mortal mother, to his discovery of wine, his battles with madness, and his conquering of death itself. As he finally makes his ascent to Olympus and Godhood, Dionysos may also be the first of a new type of God. George O’Connor has put a new spin on the Greek gods, making their tales fun and exciting again. This series is a must for every graphic novel collection.
Legend Of Brightblade GN – Quill Tree Books releases a new stand-alone graphic novel set in a classic sword-and-sorcery world. The kingdom of Skald has just reached a period of peace after years of war. Young Prince Alto dreams of being a hero like his mother, the Lady Brightblade. He believes there is still a need for heroes, and he has been learning the magic of the bard who fought at his mother’s side. Bored with royal life, Alto runs away. As he begins his journey, he makes new friends and encounters new and exciting magic. But when he discovers new dangers threatening the kingdom, Alto realizes becoming a hero is harder than the stories made it seem. This volume is perfect for fans of the Amulet series and The Witch Boy.
