Can't Wait Wednesday - Lore Olympus: Volume One by Rachel Smythe

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  However, as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

Today’s selection and book I’m excitedly awaiting is:

Lore Olympus by Rachel Smythe

Lore Olympus: Volume One

by Rachel Smythe
Graphic Novel – Fantasy – Mythology
October 5th 2021 by Del Rey Books

Experience the propulsive love story of two Greek gods—Hades and Persephone—brought to life with lavish artwork and an irresistible contemporary voice.

Scandalous gossip, wild parties, and forbidden love—witness what the gods do after dark in this stylish and contemporary reimagining of one of mythology’s most well-known stories from creator Rachel Smythe. Featuring a brand-new, exclusive short story, Smythe’s original Eisner-nominated web-comic Lore Olympus brings the Greek Pantheon into the modern age with this sharply perceptive and romantic graphic novel.

This volume collects episodes 1-25 of the #1 WEBTOON comic, Lore Olympus.

Why can’t I wait for this?

Firstly, it’s a Hades and Persephone retelling so I LOVE IT ALREADY.

Secondly, did you see how gorgeous that cover is? This is just too pretty!

Thirdly, I literally couldn’t wait for this because, even though I wanted to wait for the physical copy, I caved and started reading the webtoon already. I wanted to try just one episode to ‘get a taste of it’ and woops, now I’m halfway through all available episodes already… But NO REGRETS because this is amazing! The story is so fresh and fun, the characters are so well-developed and the art is GORGEOUS, so I definitely still want this physical copy for my shelves.

(If you also can’t wait, check it out for free already on or the Webtoon app)

Tell Me:
Will you be reading this book?
