MINISERIES PREMIERE! DOUBLE-SIZED FIRST ISSUE! Elon is a latchkey kid who spends his days alone reading comic books-until his favorite superhero, Olympian, comes crashing off the page and into reality! But as he nurses his wounded and delirious hero back to health, he discovers Olympian isn't the only thing that came through… something evil followed him. A comedic yet heartfelt love letter to the comics medium, OLYMPIA is also a meditation on hope and loss, conceived by CURT PIRES (Wyrd) and his father, TONY PIRES, while Tony was undergoing treatment for cancer.

BONUS REVIEW by Rick Berg


Nostalgia is a wonderfully powerful thing as soon as I saw the description "latchkey kid... reading comics... meets his favorite superhero" I wanted to read this comic. I was a latchkey kid and I spent hours every day reading and dreamed of meeting my heroes. Bam! I'm hooked. Curt Pires writes a compelling enough story around that premise that I want to read issue number two for sure. I really love the fact that the comics are actually telling the "real life" story of the heroes and villains, it's a nice little touch. The artwork is a little iffy in spots, suffering from 90s-itis with some armor details disappearing and reappearing at times but it tells the story just fine. It actually works very well when we are seeing the comic book pages as Elon is reading them. Definitely a tribute to early 60s Kirby comics and the kids that grew up reading them.

I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
