Olympians Synchronicity

At the literary conference I was speaking at this weekend, a very nice teacher named Chris Shave, after hearing me speak about Olympians, presented me with a copy of this recent Hi and Lois sunday comic.

This is amusing to me because my original pitch for the series was, and I quote, "Superheroes are the new mythology. THE OLYMPIANS is a new twelve book series retelling the Greek Myths, the original superheroic stories, in the format most closely associated with superheroes: comics."

I know this is hardly a revolutionary idea or anything, it's just a nice bit of cosmic coincidence to see it reflected in Hi and Lois, of all places.
