Hermes: Tales of the Trickster (Olympians, #10) Read Online Free - The New York Times bestselling series continues as author/artist George O’Connor focuses on Hermes, the trickster god in Olympians: Hermes: Tales of the Trickster.
In volume ten of Olympians, George O’Connor delves into the myth of Hermes, the trickster god. From his infancy, when he bewitches animals and bends them to his will (stealing a herd of Apollo’s prize cattle in the bargain), to his adolescence and adulthood when he becomes father to the equally mischievous Pan, Hermes’s story is wildly entertaining as he brings a little bit of chaos to everything he touches or creates. This volume is sure to be a fan favorite with its wit, charm, and storytelling.

Aah, the joys of reading an ARC. Many of the words and sentences lack spacing between them so theyruntgetherlikethis. Ack. Well over the half the text was like that, making for challenging reading.

I've only read one other graphic novel by O'Connor and that was Zeus. I wasn't a big fan but I love Greek mythology and it has been 8 or so graphic novels since then so I decided to give him another try.

Note: I received a digital review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.
There are obviously several factors that make George O'Connor's Olympian series such a relish, among these the stellar design of each protagonist, the characterization, the narrative technique, its near unive...

Another enjoyable volume to the Olympians graphic novel series. Unlike the other volumes, the stories included in this graphic novel were all new to me. I love learning new stuff! Since I read the ARC of this, a lot of the text was squished together and had issue of spacing which made it hard to...

George O'Connor continues his series on the Olympians with Hermes. Hermes is a trickster among his many attributes as becomes clear in stories told to Argus by Aesop that reveal his origins, his relationship with other Olympians, and major life events.

Some of the art in this graphic novel seemed like a step back from past installments, but the designs for Pan, Echidna, and Typhon were excellent.
At first, I thought the pacing of the story was off, but when I got to the end it felt right. I think Hermes is a hard god to cover because there are s...
