I have yet to read Persephone but just flipping through it I am struck by the amalgamation of so many different styles blended into one unique, yet disturbing, tale.
This contemporary re-imagining by LoÃ¯c Locatelli-Kournwsky has been translated into English from its original French.
For any and all who love myths and legends, this is a sure fire hit. Those who are unsure, might still find this just as entertaining as the rest of us do. But the least I could do was bring it to your attention before it gets lost to the past, becoming the stuff of lore itself.
French author LoÃ¯c Locatelli-Kournwsky presents a modern-day retelling of the Greek myth of Demeter and her daughter Persephone in an exciting universe that blends high-fantasy adventure with visuals reminiscent of Japanese anime and 1950s American-style comics.
Persephone may be the adopted daughter of the famous magician Demeter, but she struggles to find her place alongside such a force of nature.
Persephone’s desire to find out where she belongs takes her on an epic adventure deep into the Underworld, where she’ll discover who””or what””she is.
