Soledad Bravi imagined this story in a pretty book with a sky blue cover.

As always with the author, the pencil is joyful, the story facetious.

We enter heavenly land with this smile on our lips, carried by an epic and mythological breath.

So here is Cronos, father of Zeus, transformed into an old man with fluffy hair, who fights against Ouranos, then here is his son, transformed into a hateful Lilliputian, who dethrones him and becomes the "god of the sky" on a tipi-shaped Olympus. .

As we know, Zeus has some problems with his parents. His relationship with his mother, Rhéa, is moreover so confrontational that it ends in rape. But Soledad Bravi does not erase this violence, since incest, infanticide, murder, crimes and punishments are intimately part of the destiny of the gods. However, she softens it through simple strips and a very familiar tone. “But you're seriously ill!” Hera replies to her brother Zeus, while he is flirting with her.

There is a certain humor in reliving certain scenes between the gods and goddesses of Olympus.

We also feel a connection with these extraordinary beings who have decidedly very human feelings.

Isn't Zeus very jealous and angry?

And Hera?

And Poseidon?

The author revives all these aspects which still speak and always in our time.

She looks back on the many conquests (Leto, Sémélé, Leda…) of Zeus, on his children and the inescapable Theseus, Heracles and Oedipus.

A real treat.

Mythology has never been so fun to read!
