About Lore Olympus
Intricately woven around Greek mythology with its alluring, lavish, distinctive art, painting each god in their own representative color, Lore Olympus reimagines the gods of the pantheon as quirky, modern divinity with their very mortal-like lives full of forbidden love, gossips, grand parties and of course, scandals, godly conspiracies with a pinch of envy at the top!
You will find yourself falling head over heels for the king of the underworld and god of the dead, Hades, being the perfect gentleman that he is and our very own naïve goddess of spring, Persephone – the cutest, most relatable character to ever exist! Smyth’s portrayal of Hades into a nerdy, dog daddy, and if we may quote the reviewer of Love in Panels, “the ultimate, sensitive, emo guy”, and Persephone as a shy, naïve, newcomer, struggling for independence, unable to keep her emotions to herself (thanks to the flowers sprouting on her head), is adorably hilarious. Follow Hades and Persephone’s adorable tale as they struggle to overcome their inner demons while trying to keep some jealous gods, vowing to destroy their relationship, at bay!
