Del Rey Books reveals the cover for the Lore Olympus: Volume Two graphic novel collection and gives it a February 2022 release date.
Penguin Random House and Del Rey Books revealed the official cover for Volume Two of Rachel Smythe’s celebrated Lore Olympus graphic novel collection, and also announced that it will be released on Feb. 1, 2022.
Based on Smythe’s hit WEBTOON series of the same name, Lore Olympus: Volume Two will be released in both hardcover and trade paperback formats, and serves as a full-color collection of episodes 26–49 from Smythe’s original Eisner-nominated webcomic. The release also features a brand new exclusive short story.
The cover for Volume Two shows Persephone leaning against Hades’ back as he stands and looks back at her. A high-rise building, with a tree growing out the top, can be seen in the distance behind them.
News about the release of Lore Olympus: Volume Two comes after it was revealed back in March that Lore Olympus: Volume One will be published on October 5, 2021. That release will collect Chapters 1-25 of Lore Olympus, and will also feature a new bonus story by Smythe.
Smythe first began publishing the Lore Olympus series on WEBTOON in 2018 with new episodes released each week. The series currently consists of 171 episodes and has been nominated for both an Eisner and Ringo Award. An animated television series based on the series is also currently in the works at the Jim Henson Company.
The official synopsis for Lore Olympus reads,
Witness what the gods do…after dark. The friendships and the lies, the gossip and the wild parties, and of course, forbidden love. Because it turns out, the gods aren’t so different from us after all, especially when it comes to their problems. Stylish and immersive, this is one of mythology’s greatest stories — The Taking of Persephone — as it’s never been told before.
Volumes One and Two of the Lore Olympus graphic novels are available for preorder now, with more information available at LoreOlympusBooks.com.
