OLYMPIANS POSTER! A complete walkthrough

The upcoming Olympians poster is as finished as it's gonna get. I thought you might like to see this step-by-step process of how it was made, from the finish all the way back to the sketch.

  1. Is this the poster? If so it looks good!

  2. This will be the poster! And thanks!

  3. Hi George,

    I picked up books 4 and 6, but I haven't read any other book in the series. I was wondering if they are meant to be read in order.

    Thanks in advance!

    1. Actually yes, it starts at Book 1 (Zeus) then you go to Metis' story in Athena (Book 2), Book 3 (Hera) tells you about Perseus' descendant Herakles, Book 4 (Hades) includes Herakles' shade in the Underworld and Persephone's story, Book 5 (Poseidon) gives you hints on the divison of the cosmos and Poseidon's own story, Book 6 (Aphrodite) has the start of the Trojan War, and Ares (Book 7) I think you'll hear about the Trojan War and maybe Ares and Aphrodite's affair.

  4. Mr. O'Connor, can you make a web series on this. Each comic book can be an episode.

    PS. Are you gonna make some Egyptian mythology comics.
    You can make at least 5 (Ra: The Creator, Isis: Devoted Wife and Mother, Anubis: God of the Dead, Sobek: Crocodile God, and Tefnut: Moisture Goddess).

    1. Oh, me again, can u make a webseries (perhaps 12) on the Egyptian myths.
      1. Ra and the Creation
      2. Nut's Kids
      3. Osiris' Death
      4. Isis resurrecting Osiris
      5. Nepthys nursing Horus
      6. Anubis and Funeral rites
      8. Tefnut and the Evil of Man
      9. Horus and Set
      10. Thoth and the fight with Apep
      11. Hathor and Sachmis/Sekhmet
      12. Khnum and Nit

  5. I'm really looking forward to the Trojan War (from the perspective of the gods) in Ares: Bringer of War!

    (Any chance of Iris making a cameo in the book? Since Hermes is a participant, I remember that she's Zeus' messenger in the Iliad.)

  6. Could you make a mini comic on Hestia?

  7. I saw the olympians box set on and when is Ares: Bringer of War going to come out?

  8. This poster is amazing! Can I buy it on-line somewhere?
