Athena: Grey-Eyed Goddess by George O'Connor...

... is another AMAZINGLY TERRIFIC graphic novel in his Olympians series. He's taking all 12 of the deities in the ancient Greek pantheon and making a graphic novel about each one. This one is the second; the first was Zeus: King of the Gods and you can read my review here. After reading this one, all I could say was--


George O'Connor is one extremely talented artist and writer, taking these stories, which are thousands of years old, and making them as thrilling, intense, and fun as any graphic novel you'd find at your local comics store. And what stories he has to tell, from Athena's highly unusual birth to her battle with the Gigantes! If that wasn't enough, you also get Perseus and Medusa and Athena's little weaving competion with Arachne. Guys, if you like mythology, or are a Percy Jackson fan, or simply like great stories and artwork that will knock your socks off, then you need to check out Athena: Grey-Eyed Goddess!
