If there’s one word that can summarize the plot of Lore Olympus Volume Two, it would be scandal.
An uneventful night at Hade’s home, that was caused by Aphrodite’s mischief, will impact how others perceive Persephone in Olympus and the Underworld. We’ve witnessed the positive and toxic relationship Persephone and Hades are dealing with in Volume One. Volume Two is more about the harm that misinformation causes, as well as, Persephone adjusting to unsupervised life in Olympus. She doesn’t want to go back to her helicopter mother, but her new home feels more like a battleground. For reasons that I won’t explain. If you’d like to know, please read Lore Olympus Volume One or read it digitally at Webtoon. Typically, it’s the top romance and fantasy Webtoon. So, it won’t be hard to find.
Thanks to Volume One, I was prepared to see the original art printed for Episode 26 thru 49. That doesn’t mean the comic isn’t stunning in person. Instead of swiping up, we get to see multiple panels on one page. I took the liberty of sharing some of my favorite Persephone panels from Volume Two.
Moving forward, the Webcomic turned Graphic Novel doesn’t have traumatic events on every page, but it does address the different ways people react to triggers. That being said, the characters are imperfect and flawed in ways a reader can relate to. Things get darker from here. Strictly print readers should keep that in mind. You’ll only get one traumatic disclaimer warning in Volume Two.
