Pantheons, princesses, plagues, and private eyes: these comics creators give classic tropes new meaning. Featuring George O’Connor with Apollo: The Brilliant God, Matthew Phelan with Snow White, and Julia Gfrorer with Laid Waste.
In Julia Gfrörer‘s graphic novel, Laid Waste, a supernaturally strong, medieval widow must decide how to use her powers in a plague-ravaged medieval city. In Apollo: The Brilliant One, the latest volume of Olympians, George O’Connor continues to turn his extensive knowledge of the original Greek myths into rip-roaring graphic novel storytelling for mid-grade children. In Snow White: A Graphic Novel, award-winning graphic novelist Matt Phelan delivers a darkly stylized noir Snow White set against the backdrop of Depression-era Manhattan.
