PERSEPHONE follows a young girl whose search for the truth about her identity leads her on a journey deep into the Underworld by visionary writer/artist Loïc Locatelli-Kournwsky. 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.
“PERSEPHONE is a story for anyone who’s ever felt like they don’t fit or like the world is telling them who they’re supposed to be, even if it’s not who they want to be,” said Sierra Hahn, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Storyteller Loïc Locatelli-Kournwsky beautifully reimagines the Greek myth of Demeter and her daughter, the eponymous Persephone, as a nuanced modern day fantasy adventure for readers of all ages.”
