Lore Olympus is a great comic. The artwork is lovely and really fun. I read some of the web comic last year and and really liked it, so I'm glad that it was released in a physical book.

A goddess beginning her time as an eternal maiden and the king of the underworld have a complicated relationship and they’ve just met, what’s going to happen next? Oh, and things aren’t what they seem. Lore Olympus Volume Three by Rachel Smythe finds the two protagonists once again finding themselves together this time thanks to the machinations of Hera whose plans of everyone else including Persephone and Hades.

Covering episodes #50-75 of the webcomic finds Hades and Persephone combatting the gossip by different means, mainly by doing things that are toxic to themselves or hiding away from the truth as well as staying away from one another. However, when Hera selects Persephone as Olympus’ representative for an intern exchange program with the Underworld, things once again are complicated between the two protagonists. Yet Smythe begins branching out the story with subplots featuring Eros, Minthe, and planting the seeds for others as the series while slowly pulling away layers of the protagonists’ stories including a mysterious event in the past. The art’s quality is excellent and Smythe shaping of the story is engaging, dominated by character-driven narrative but with a mix of worldbuilding and humor.

Lore Olympus Volume Three by Rachel Smythe continues the quality storytelling that she had established earlier and that the story is about to expand in a natural way that makes the reader want to know what is going to happen next.

After what seems like several volumes of people just emoting and wallowing in their angst, suddenly a plot kicks in as Persephone is revealed to have a major secret that suddenly everyone is interested in uncovering.

It's nice to have something actually happen in this soapy guilty pleasure. Now if only the creator would get better at consistently identifying the characters in name and appearance and work on her scene-to-scene transitions. I would enjoy the story more if I weren't so frequently confused by the shortfalls in the technical aspects of the storytelling.… (mais)

I just love the Hades and Persephone written this way, him wanting to protect her and her making him feel safe and wanted.
