George O'Connor, Poseidon: Earth Shaker
Last year, George delighted hundreds of kids in schools and in the store with his incredible knowledge of Greek mythology, his amazingly cool and dynamic drawing and his overall, general coolness. Now, George returns to watchung booksellers for the release of his 5th book in the Olympians series, Poseidon: Earth Shaker. George O'Connor is a Greek mythology buff and a classic superhero comics fan, and he's out to remind us how much our pantheon of superheroes from, Superman to the X-Men, owes to mankind's original superheroes: the Greek pantheon. In Olympians, O'Connor draws from primary documents to reconstruct and retell classic Greek myths. But don’t be fooled, these are action-packed, fast-paced, high-drama adventures, with monsters, romance, and not a few huge explosions. O'Connor's vibrant, super-cool art brings ancient tales to undeniable life, in a perfect fusion of super-hero aesthetics and ancient Greek mythology. In addition to graphic novels, George has published several children's picture books, including the New York Times best-selling Kapow, Sally and the Some-Thing, and Uncle Bigfoot. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.
