Sneak peek at some of John Rocco’s art from “Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods”, from his own blog. Accompanying the image of Persephone in the world above Hades and the Underworld, he says:

Next up is a book on Greek Mythology written by Rick Riordan. This is a HUGE book (about 400 pages) with over 60 paintings.  Here is a sneak peak at one of the paintings.

400 pages! 60 paintings! Can’t wait!

So, at the event last night, Rick Riordan revealed the cover for Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods for the first time ever! It felt nice being one of the first few people in the world to see it and I knew you guys would want to see it, too. I never got a better picture than this because I was in the back of the audience, but you get the idea.

You’re welcome, internet.

Preview: Percy Jackson and the Greek Gods

ZEUS

Why is Zeus always first?

Seriously, every book about the Greek gods has to start with this guy. Are we doing reverse alphabetical order? I know he’s the king of Olympus and all – but, trust me, this dude’s ego does not need to get any bigger.

You know what? Forget him.

We’re going to talk about the gods in the order they were born, women first. Take a backseat, Zeus. We’re starting with Hestia.

That’s the nice thing about being a human. We only have one life but we can choose what kind of story it’s going to be.

To Nico: how offended do you get on your dad's behalf that his planet isn't a real planet any more?
  • Nico: well um....
  • Nico: I dunno how to answer this.
  • Nico: you see I'm Greek.....and Hades is Greek.
  • Nico: Pluto is the planet....
  • Nico: Pluto is Roman....
  • Nico: uh.
  • Nico: does Pluto even count as my dad?
  • Nico: 'cause like....
  • Nico: WHY ARE YOU ATTACKING ME?!
