Waiting on Wednesday: Artemis: Wild Goddess of the Hunt by George O'Connor

WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share the titles we can't wait to release.

Artemis: Wild Goddess of the Hunt by George O'Connor. Olympian series #9. 80 p. First Second, January 

Publisher synopsis: Shunned even before she was born and destined to live a life of solitude, Artemis, Goddess of the Hunt, finds power through her skilled hunting ability and mighty bow. She slays those who wish to do harm to the innocent and takes care of the young and helpless. She protects women and young girls, helps in childbirth, soothes, and is unrivaled in her hunting abilities. In the latest volume of Olympians, New York Times–bestselling author George O'Connor continues to turn his extensive knowledge of the original Greek myths into rip-roaring graphic novel storytelling.

This series is pretty popular at my school. At one point a year or so ago, I noticed a big, gaping hole where the books sit. When I checked the catalog, only one or two were checked out, so I thought the rest of the series had been stolen. I marked them lost. A while later, I was looking for a book in the 300s and saw that a bunch of books were on the shelf spine-side in. I pulled them out and discovered all the missing Olympian books. I re-shelved them correctly only to find them missing again a few days later so I scanned the shelves and, sure enough, found them spine-side in in the 398s. The good thing is that the hoarder didn't actually steal the books.


  1. Thanks! I need to both update my Greek myths and add to my graphic novels, so this fits perfectly!
