Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Stunning in its ambition, Benjamin's detailed story imagines all of the characters of the various world mythologies living together in one universe—and sending their children to the same high school in Los Angeles. Sullen Grace is the daughter of Tyr, Norse god of war; reckless Griffin, child of Hades and raised by adopted human parents, flirts with suicide and tries to bribe Charon to take him home; Yukio, son of the Japanese goddess of luck, skirts by on his innate good fortune; and Aziza, daughter of Egyptian sun god Ra, can use her body to generate intense heat. When a group of renegade mythological students puts the rest of the student body to sleep so that they can carry out their plan to ascend to godhood alongside their parents, the four fight back together. There are laughs aplenty throughout the school day, and there is something utterly charming about immortal beings talking fluid 21st-century teenspeak. The intricate and detailed artwork includes tons of clever puns and historical references hidden throughout; a much-needed glossary at the end points out the mythical background of many of the sight gags and references. This is truly a one-of-a-kind work that entertains with intelligence and humor. (Feb.)

KLIATT - Jennifer Feigelman
At Pantheon High, children of Greek, Japanese, Egyptian and Norse gods run amuck through the halls. Like any other high school in southern California, Pantheon High has cliques and stereotypes: Aziza, daughter of the Egyptian god Ra, is a pretty and popular girl concerned with little more than shopping and socializing; Grace, the daughter of the Norse god Tyr, is a shy and studious wallflower; Yukio, the son of the Japanese goddess Benten, is a charismatic jock; and Griffin, the son of Greek god Hades, is a loner who is determined to get to the Underworld to meet his father. When a group of demigods decide to try to end the world, this motley crew is thrown together to try and save Pantheon High—and the world! Typical manga stylized art accompanies a creative and unusual plot. The mixture of mythologies is sheer fun, and readers who are less well versed in their various legends can find edification in the panel-by-panel breakdown, "Mythstory 101 with Professor Paul," at the end of the story. A decidedly intelligent and enjoyable Original English Language manga—think Breakfast Club meets Bulfinchs' Mythology—this volume would be best suited for an older teen audience due to some fight scenes and brief nudity (from behind only).

    Review by AcesMommy

    I don't know what much I can say about this book. I honestly didn't like the art work; there were some that were nicely drawn and the rest looked 'sloppy.' I guess the story line was 'OK', but nothing more. I enjoyed the fact that mythology was involved (not many mangas with story lines of Greek Gods or Gods for that matter) and atleast the author tried at best to stick to the original myths about them. I utterly HATED the dialogue (dawg, slammin', word, etc. "gangsta" talk) had me annoyed throughout the end. I managed to read all the way through, but it's really not my cup of tea. I will however be reading Volume 2 to see if any improvements/changes were made fromt the first volume. Plus there are only 2 Volumes throughout the whole series. So, on with Book 2.
