From his throne high atop Mount Olympus, the mighty and powerful god Zeus reigned over ancient Greece with his fellow Olympians. Feared for his lightning bolt but loved for his compassion for humanity, Zeus presided over an era of peace and prosperity. But Zeus's ascension to power was violently contested. In fact, he claimed power for his own by waging a horrible war that threatened to destroy the entire world. And to make matters worse, he was opposed in this battle for all existence by none other than his own father.

See how Zeus takes power for himself as he picks up his famous sword of storms for the first time and leads the rise of the Olympians!

About the Author:

Born in 1974 in Toms River, New Jersey, Ryan Foley's obsession with comic books began during his childhood with trips to the grocery store with his mother where he was first introduced to characters such as Spider-Man and Batman. In 2004, Ryan achieved a lifelong goal when his first comic book was published. When not writing comics, Ryan enjoys all kinds of movies, especially fantasy and sci-fi films such as Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings.

Review:

"Ryan's well crafted words convey the saga of divine succession powerfully and effectively. His selection and use of source material is brilliant and his own creative spin greatly adds to the enjoyment of the account. The unique personalities and motivations of Ouranos, Gaea, Cronus and Zeus move the story forward and greatly invest you in the outcome. Although the ending isn't exactly a surprise, if you're familiar enough with ancient Near-Eastern variants of the tale, it nonetheless took me totally by surprise when I finally arrived there. Very well done Ryan!
Jayakrishnan's art manages to reconcile and combine a misty and ethereal otherness with raw elemental power to create a new vision of Greek Mythology. Traditional mythic images are additionally enhanced with elements most often associated with the genre of Sword & Sorcery." — Hercules Invictus, Voice of Olympus Book Reviews

"I highly recommend Campfire’s comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in  a way that excites kids about classic literature." — Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom (a resource for teachers and librarians)

Jayakrishnan's illustrations are in the best traditions of the superhero genre. Comic readers will find themselves quite at home with his work.... The art work... eminently suitable to the subject matter. — Jack Goodstein, Blog Critics
