Would you want to be an intern in the Underworld?

This modern imagining of the myth of Persephone asks, "What if Persephone ended up in the Underworld by her own choice?" Smythe imagines that Persephone is new to the world of the Gods and through a series of interactions, she ends up in the Underworld as an intern to Hades. Follow along to see how their relationship develops, often having to break through roadblocks constructed by other gods. Smythe started this story as a webcomic and it has now been published as a multivolume work. The work is primarily black and white but with purposeful use of bright colors - mainly magenta and dark blue - she highlights different characters and how they interact.
