The Secret to ‘Persephone’s’ Identity Lies in the Underworld in BOOM! Studios’ New Original Graphic Novel
BOOM! Studios has announced Persephone, Loïc Locatelli-Kournwsky’s moving original graphic novel (OGN) about a young girl whose search for the truth about her identity leads her on a journey deep into the Underworld. Inspired by the Greek myth of Demeter and her daughter, the eponymous Persephone, the book is a modern-day fantasy adventure featuring an emotionally nuanced story and lush art. Persephone will debut May 2018.
In Persephone, she may be the adopted daughter of the famous magician Demeter, but Persephone struggles to find her place alongside the force of nature that is her mother. Driven by recurring nightmares, she decides to explore the secrets of her birth, which everyone around her seems rather intent on keeping from her. With or without their help, Persephone will embark on an epic adventure deep into the Underworld where she’ll discover who—or what—she is.
