Another George O'Connor graphic novel in his Olympian series. IN COLOR!

Hera is mostly known for her jealously and wrath, but O'Connor does a great job showing her side of the story. Known as the only one who scares Zeus, Hera embraces her new found power as Queen of the Olympians and punishes her husband and his consorts again and again for his bad behavior.

Even though the graphic novel is supposed to be about Hera, Heracles steals half of the book with the twelve labors Hera gives him to complete. So the book probably should be called Hera and Hercules: A complicated relationship.
