From the moment she emerged, fully grown, from the head of Zeus, Athena was one of the most complex Olympians. This graphic novel retells her many interwoven tales: how she killed Pallas, fought the Gigantes, aided Perseus, and cursed Arachne.

This graphic novel from George O'Connor's Olympians series tells the origin story of Athena the Goddess of Wisdom and several stories important to her development and the building of her aegis.

I can't tell you how much I love this series. It tells lots of the great myth's in a way that makes them very accessible. The illustration style is extremely appropriate and the author doesn't necessarily stick with the most common version of the story. The notes he includes are great and even have references of stories to come, a little bit of humor and give the versions of the stories that the author chose not to include.
He also includes explanations of why he chose to go with the version's of the stories he went with.

I've always found Athena interesting and I liked watching a God develop and grow. It puts a whole new spin on the Greek Gods and how human they could be. Some of the myths in her story I had never heard before and some are stories told over and over again. I liked that they told Perseus' story even though it didn't directly include Athena much. The author's inclusion of it made you feel all the more how important the aegis is. ( )

Athena: Grey-Eyed Goddess by George O'Connor is the follow up to Zeus: King of the Gods. It was short listed for a Cybils award in the young adult graphic novel category.

The book tells of the life and times of Athena through a series of short episodes. It's a decent introduction to her myths in Greek mythology and might be fun for kids who have read the Rick Riordan books.

There's no doubt that Greek mythology is hot stuff right now in tween and YA books. It's probably the Percy Jackson effect. There's an influx of graphic novels inspired by Greek mythology, including graphic novel retellings of the Percy Jackson books (post link to Lightning Thief gn review).

While I'm normally a raving fan of pretty much anything published by First Second, Athena wasn't my cup of tea. Athena didn't stand out among the crowd of these Greek myth graphic novels. It's a perfectly adequate retelling but it wasn't an outstanding example. ( )
