In form it remains true to the myths, and it is to its benefit that it is told in the way that it is. The Moirai are used as storytellers and this connects the individual stories together nicely. The one thing it is missing, is more examples of her wisdom.

O'Connor consistently packs a lot of story into an affordable package in this series. Here, he deftly weaves together a number of Athena myths, including many that may be little known to the casual reader, without sacrificing action or drama.

Great Book for kids!!!

Athena is my favorite goddess. I love the way she was portrayed in this graphic novel. It told the myths in an interesting fashion without changing them around too much. I hope the author writes more of these, I would definitely read them.

This entire series by O'conner is excellent. Not just an excellent graphic depiction of greek mythos, but simply good telling of the greek mythos overall.This series is perfect for the child first exploring greek mythology, and for the adult who wants to revisit these myths. The myths are made understandable, but they are not as watered down as they normally are. O'conner does an amazing job balancing the content of the myths within a PG level story so that you really don't lose much of the original story. The conversation is good, it feels real, and has nuggets of other myths inside it. Even if you disagree with his interpretations I think you'll enjoy the work. Read them. Athena was always my favorite goddess and it's good to see her story told so well.
