Welcome back to Lore Olympus, the spicy modern retelling of Greek mythology that centers on an adorable Hades and Persephone romance. Volume 2 picks up where the last left off and covers episodes 26-47. You can read the entire Webtoon here, but also I do love having the physical copies of these as the art is stunning and really pops. Volume 2 introduces us to some new characters, such as Hecate finally making an appearance and Thetis showing up for a delightfully snarky encounter with Minthe, but continues the ever-entangling plotline of the Gods with their desires and bad behaviors propelling the plotline. Pretty much everyone is a fuckboi and there are a lot of hurt feels going on in Vol 2., but the adorable connection between Hades and Persephone (with Hades usually acting all hard on the outside but on the inside is a big softie with a complicated history) being the sweetness that makes the story really stick. This is a big soap opera and does deal with some rather dark issues, such as the depiction of Apollo as quite the stalkery creep who gets violent when told no. This issue addresses the age difference between Hades and Persephone head on, and while the characters act in problematic ways (I mean, its the Greek Gods, what do you expect), Rachel Smyth leans into it for excellent results. The characters are very dynamic and experience a whole range of emotions, really bringing them to life beyond the traditional tales. I also enjoy Persephone’s character a lot, being the young college girl who just needs to believe in herself despite knowing she is very booksmart. She deals with rumors about her floating around, and a major story arc is a tabloid paper accusing her of sleeping her way into the Royal Family, so theres a lot of drama to be had here. We also have Hera doing what Hera does best: testing people. So this is great fun and I just love the story. The art, however, might be the best part. The blues and pinks really pop and the character design is quite fun and allows for maximum expression of emotions. Lore Olympus is a blast, you won’t regret it. It’ll make you laugh, cringe, and cry. 4.5/4

    Loved being back in this world with these characters and another 400 pages of mutual pining! My only complaint is that I would have loved a smidge more of Hades & Persephone!

    WHELPPPP....... I may have waited for the print ver. of the first Vol. to start the series, but that is 1000% NOT happening this time around. Like as soon as i'm done writing this lil' pre-review I will most definitely be on WEBTOON THNKSVRYMCH . The first book was Ep. 1-25, & this is going to only be Eps 26-49?!? THERE ARE 160+ EPS AVAILABLE RN!!!! Sorry, buhhhhh that's gonna be a NO for me on the waiting... thing. Kind of, oh I meant ABSOLUTELY, SUCK at waiting.

BUT that does NOT mean that i'm going to NOT collect the gorgeous special edition print versions hehe. I've already pre-ordered Vol. 2, of course(!); I feel very strongly about supporting authors/artists/creators/ etc! I'll def be continuing to pre-order/buy the physical HCs as they are announced/ released, seemingly once every 6-7ish months—I think, hopefully, if we're lucky ? (i don't think vol. 3 has been announced yet sooo we shall see!) to keep supporting Smythe!!! BUT. LOOK, JS. I have NO CHILL RN! NO ONE HAS EVER SAID THAT PATIENCE IS MY STRONG SUIT, OKAY?! 🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️🤣 Now anyone know how in the world i'm supposed to log LO in its WEBTOON format into GR in a little bit after I rip through all of, at the very least, Season 1?!? IF I remember correctly, they split it into S1 & S2 on here? Hahah any help much appreciated. 😉

    2nd read: (27th July ‘22) Finally got to read the physical copy and now I love it even more. It’s so beautiful. 1st: (6th Jan ‘22) Read on WEBTOON, but you best believe I’m going to re-read it a million times when the physical copy releases. Definitely my favourite comic/graphic novel series of all time. 😍

    I love these dumb cinnamon rolls so much. This volume wasn't as painful as the first volume regarding Persephone's SA experience, but it did still reflect back on that in some ways, and my heart hurts for her every time it comes up. There were also some Choices™️ made by Hades at the end of this volume that I'm extremely displeased with, buuut I also feel pretty certain they'll be taken care of sooner rather than later!

    Volume 2 is just as gorgeous as volume 1! I’ve been reading this series on WEBTOON, but it’s amazing in print! Volume 2 covers episodes 26-49 so it’s pretty early on in the storyline. I was pleased to read it again and see quite a bit of visual foreshadowing. Nice to know Smyth was definitely planning some key elements later on in the series. Her use of color and design is lovely. The panels have good use of movement, character development, imagery, symbolism, etc. Her dialogue is fun and often Volume 2 is just as gorgeous as volume 1!

Serious topics are handled with utmost care and I appreciate the depth it gives the story. While the story does focus on Hades and Persephone, there are some fantastic secondary characters. I forgot how young Persephone acted in the first set of episodes (first season on WEBTOON). It can be a little off putting since Hades is so much older than she is. However, later episodes will have her grow up more. I love the creativity of this series and can’t wait for volume 3!

    I do have to say I liked this better than the first volume. The dialogue has improved. The douche bags in the book have taken a backseat to Hades and Persephone. Persephone and Hades are adorable. The art has improved as well. It's still extremely minimalistic. Smythe has an eye for color though and uses that color to detail what isn't detailed in her line work. The colors really pop off the page. I do have to say I liked this better than the first volume.

    Absolutely stunning. This volume is even stronger than the first as Persephone and Hades' relationship continues to grow. It was adorable and touching and those last few frames...chilling. Jealousy abounds and Persephone's secrets are slowly unraveling. It's just a lovely story with cute artwork to boot. Can't wait for the rest of this webtoon to be published. <3 Absolutely stunning.

    Rating: 3 out of 5 stars Persephone is 19 years old and Hades is 2,000. I’m still not over that humongous age gap. I get it, trust me I do, but couldn’t Rachel Smythe at least make her 190 years old? Compared to a 2,000 year old she would still be less worldly and have some naivety instead of making Hades a cradle robber. This left a bad taste in my mouth and even though being 19 makes you a legal adult this felt grimy and like the author was trying to hyper-infantilize Persephone.

    ★★★★★ The second volume features chapters 26-50 of the webcomic "Lore Olympus" and again, one unpublished extra chapter. The art is–again–fantastic and progressing, while the story deepens, revolving around topics like sexual, mental and physical abuse and the spiritual connection we sometimes develope with other people. ★★★★★ The second volume features chapters 26-50 of the webcomic "Lore Olympus" and again, one unpublished extra chapter.

    My gods I love this comic so much - I was a little unsure about the previous volume - like it was still great but it felt a little like set up and I wasn't sure if it could deliver? And then this volume arrived and yep it delivered! Like a pretty good give away for me is if I actually like audibly react to the book, I talk back, I squeek because Cerberus is too cute and the goodest boi and I would read a spinoff that was just like "day in the life of Cerberus" becuase I love him? - I will say th My gods I love this comic so much - I was a little unsure about the previous volume - like it was still great but it felt a little like set up and I wasn't sure if it could deliver?

I will also say I liked the discussion between Hades and all the other elder-gods where they are all like, hey hades you are older than her, and this will affect you differently than her - and just some emphasis on hey - its different for women - its a small thing but I liked that it was there. Also Apollo can just go die?? tnx

    This was good but also, like, I wanted moooore. As far as graphic novels go, this is for sure one to pick up! Just make sure you look through CWs first and maybe check it out on webtoons first too!

    I am loving this series! Yes, I know I can read it on Webtoon, but there is something about reading a physical copy and seeing the art along ugh reading the story in this format that just makes me feel alive! Persephone & Hades make my heart go boom boom boom but faster than that is typed out. I want nothing but to consume their story. My birthday (Oct 11) can’t come fast enough!
