Lore Olympus Vol. One Cover

*PLEASE NOTE: Rankings reflect sales for November 2021*

Continuing a unique feat from November’s NPD Bookscan Chart for Adult Graphic Novels, it is Webtoons that have made their presence known in a market that has been dominated by Manga, mostly the Shonen and Seinen Genre. It is Rachel Smythe’s Lore Olympus Vol. 1 that took Number One in this month’s Best Seller List, and Chugong and Dubu’s Solo Leveling Vol. 3 finds its way at Number 15, but the only manga title that has stayed on for its second month was Attack on Titan Vol. 34 the Series Finale dropping down to No.9, last month it was at No. 3.

Persephone, young goddess of spring, is new to Olympus. Her mother, Demeter, has raised her in the mortal realm, but after Persephone promises to train as a sacred virgin, she’s allowed to live in the fast-moving, glamorous world of the gods. When her roommate, Artemis, takes her to a party, her entire life changes: she ends up meeting Hades and feels an immediate spark with the charming yet misunderstood ruler of the Underworld. Now Persephone must navigate the confusing politics and relationships that rule Olympus, while also figuring out her own place—and her own power.”
