Join George O’Connor, creator of the Olympians graphic novels, for a special preview event with Mackin where he talks with Mark Siegel, Creative Director of FirstSecond Books, about his journey of creating the Olympians series. Book 12, Olympians: Dionysos, is the final book in the Olympians series and is available for purchase March 8, 2022. If you’re looking to complete your collection, the final boxed set of Books 7-12 will also be available!
In the final volume of the New York Times–bestselling Olympians graphic novel series, author/artist George O’Connor focuses on Dionysos, the god of wine and madness.
The Olympians saga draws to a close with the tale of Dionysos, the last Olympian, and maybe, just maybe, the first of a new type of God. His story is told by the first Olympian herself, Hestia, Goddess of the hearth and home. From her seat in the center of Mt. Olympus, Hestia relates the rise of Dionysos, from his birth to a mortal mother, to his discovery of wine, his battles with madness and his conquering of death itself, culminating, finally, in his ascent to Olympus and Godhood.
