Lore Olympus is an Eisner-nominated, mostly-modern retelling of the Classic myth, the Abduction of Persephone. It is originally published on Webtoon, where new episodes are uploaded on Sundays – you can still read it for free if you’d like.
A Spanish-language translation of the series has been released, as well.
In October 2019, an animated adaptation of Lore Olympus from the Jim Henson Company was announced.
As denoted by the volume number, this is the second Lore Olympus collection, with the first still forthcoming. As previously reported here at The Beat, the first volume of Lore Olympus will be released on October 5th, 2021.
The first volume will collect episodes one through twenty-five of the Webtoon series, along with an exclusive bonus chapter. The second volume will include episodes twenty-six through forty-nine.
You can read more about both upcoming collections at the Lore Olympus collection website, where you can also preorder both volumes. Preorders of volume one include a digital download of wallpapers for cell phone telephones and desktop computers, and there is also a Barnes & Noble exclusive cover featuring original art by Smythe, so collectors will want to be sure and survey all the options before making their purchasing plans.
