CHANNILLO
The Goddess Complex
By John Altamirano

Series Description:

 It seems everyone thinks they should rule Mount Olympus. Zeus’ presence, charity, and leadership on Earth serve him well, but he is known at home only as a man of appetites. Queen Hera, creator of the neglected Moira, a place ruled by women, has found solace in the arms of fertility goddess Demeter. A keen businesswoman and self-proclaimed artist, Demeter tires of the Olympian laws preventing her advancement to the royal court Athena freely roams. Athena, administrator of an Athens in turmoil and ambivalent about her role in the family, grows envious of Zeus’ admiration of her devoted servant Medusa. Her gruesome and cruel retaliation for this makes her a fugitive of Zeus. Her trial will call into question the changes in Olympian law which allowed for her to be born fully formed and not from Hera’s womb. Athena’s escape and an Earthly formula contrived by Zeus with untested powers of creation change everything. A doorway through time and a trip to the 1970s round out this story of a woebegone mother, a power mad daughter, and the goddess using them both to change everything for women forever.
