Witness what the gods do after dark in the third volume of a stylish and contemporary reimagining of one of the best-known stories in Greek mythology, featuring a brand-new, exclusive short storyfrom creator Rachel Smythe.
“It is natural for a King to be curious about his future Queen. . . .”
All of Olympus-and the Underworld-are talking about the God of the Dead and the sprightly daughter of Demeter. But despite the rumors of their romance, Hades and Persephone have plenty to navigate on their own.
Since coming to Olympus, Persephone has struggled to be the perfect maiden goddess. Her attraction to Hades has only complicated the intense burden of the gods’ expectations. And after Apollo’s assault, Persephone fears she can no longer bury the intense feelings of hurt and love that she’s worked so hard to hide.
As Persephone contemplates her future, Hades struggles with his past, falling back into toxic habits in Minthe’s easy embrace. With all the mounting pressure and expectations-of their family, friends, and enemies-both Hades and Persephone tell themselves to deny their deepest desires, but the pull between them is too tempting, too magnetic. It’s fate.
This full-color edition of Smythe’s original Eisner-nominated webcomic Lore Olympus brings Greek mythology into the modern age in a sharply perceptive and romantic graphic novel.
This volume collects episodes 50-75 of the #1 WEBTOON comic Lore Olympus.

Micky’s 4.5 star review
Another winning volume from this series that I can’t seem to get enough of. Hades and Kore are circling but not any nearer it seems but I live for their slowest of slow burns. It’s like a sweet torture. I remain glued to Hades’ insecurity and uncertainty.
There were a couple of episodes in this one that completely had my heart wrecked, mushy and warm all at once. Meeting Eros properly and seeing him care for Persephone’s wellbeing, guiding her on her trauma, was everything. That later insight into Eros’ life…yeah, I could do with more of that. I found Aphrodite hilarous and the siblings had me chuckling too.
Minthe wasn’t selling herself in this one. Hecate was her background awesome. I am dying to see where the whole goddess scholarship storyline ends up.
Gimme more endlessly.
