Death Asks His Crush Out On A Date In This Delightful Comic About Hades' First Date With Persephone

This lovely love story is from French cartoonists at Goofy Gods Comics.

One of the greatest stories in all of mythology is the tale of Persephone, goddess of the harvest and life, and Hades, the god of death and the underworld. The story goes that Hades fell in love with Persephone and vowed to have her. He kidnapped Persephone, but her absence caused the the mortal world to suffer and starve because spring and the harvest couldn't happen without her. So Hades promised to return her but tricked her into eating pomegranates from the underworld. This would force her to spend half her time in in the underworld.

Like most Greek myths, there are some edges to the tale, but the French webcomic artists at Goofy Gods tell a much nicer version of the story. In their version Hades is a shy goth boy and Persephone is his sweet-natured crush.
