I will be starting this project off by focusing on retelling Greek Mythology, following the steps of Rick Riordan and George O’Connor.
I’m going to start with my personal favorite, the story of Hades and Persephone.
I believe that Persephone is a character that many can sympathize with, and that Hades is interesting and has a lot of potential outside of his “ra ra evil king of the Underworld” reputation.
Eventual goals for this rendition will be:
- A zine with poetry, illustrations, and short strips influenced by the characters and themes throughout the story.
- An ongoing comic, split into individual issues.
