    So yes I have already read this but I wanted to see how it'd translate to comic! Because surely it can't be a worse adaption than the movie \_(ツ)_/ And like I really enjoyed it and seeing the art, also some of Percy's expressions were super adorable. But overall he looked so old?! They're calling them 12 but they looked 18 or something agh. And the art overall didn't explode my world into pretty fireworks, buuuut...I like pictures. More books should have pictures. More books should have graphic So yes I have already read this but I wanted to see how it'd translate to comic!

(Also they do condense a lot of scenes from the original, but as far as I remember...it seems to be pretty faithful!)

    1.5 stars. The truth about graphic novels is that they are almost always bad entirely carried by the illustrations. That's just how it is. So when you have illustrations that are, to be frank, rather bad and the characters do NOT look like how anyone, except apparently Attila, envisioned them, it all amounts to a poor graphic adaptation that doesn't hold a candle, nor even a crappy busted Bic lighter, to the original series. You don't gain anything except a minor headache from reading this. I mea 1.5 stars. The truth about graphic novels is that they are almost always bad entirely carried by the illustrations.

At least her Percy and Annabeth look like they have a personality.

    I suppose the artist/writer wanted to keep this graphic novel as brief as possible, but in the process he/she completely omitted a number of important plot points from the Lightning Thief novel. I would have been thoroughly disappointed in the story had I not read the written version a long time ago.

    I felt like it didn't portray Percy as well as the book did, he wasn't as funny in the graphic and I felt that the story didn't flow very well because of key parts that were missing. However I really liked the art and it was easy to follow.

    So on Christmas eve my two best friends and I exchanged gifts at work. Lindsay bought Andrea the first three graphic novels of the Percy Jackson series. Now, I had NO idea up to this point that these were a thing. Then when Lindsay and I opened our gifts from Andrea we realized she bought them for us! Can’t tell we spend a lot of time together!!!

Lindsay bought Andrea the first three graphic novels of the Percy Jackson series. Now, I had NO idea up to this point that these were a thing. Then when Lindsay and I opened our gifts from Andrea we realized she bought them for us! Can’t tell we spend a lot of time together!!! We all read and loved the Percy Jackson series. It was something we shared together. The three of us read all the time and typically if one of us raves over something we all end up reading it. Our tastes are almost identical and honestly- is there anything better than talking books with friends?! No. There is not. I flew through this book. It was a quick read and a really neat interpretation. What I really enjoyed the most was that all of the darker elements of the PJ series are brought to light. Yes, it’s a children's series, I know. But guess what- the world isn't sunshine and rainbows. I love when “children’s books” show the harsher truth and reality of the world…even if it is done through a fantasy based theme. I loved the artwork and thought they did a great job bringing the story to life. The characters looked how I pictured them and looked age-appropriate. This was a much better representation than the movie. Don’t even get me started. I can’t wait for Andrea to finish the other two so I can borrow them!! ;)

    This was a really fun and fast read, which I really liked. But what I didn't like is lack of Percy's humour, and most characters looked so different than as I imagined them.

Percy Jackson is one of those stories that stick with you and you can pick at any moment and you'll have fun reading. It is the perfect story to get a kid into reading and falling in love with books. They are filled with monsters, adventure and the perfect amount of comedy. And in comic form is no different. It is a shorten version of the book, but it is fun and lighthearted and will make you have a good time. Obviously it will never beat the book, but it is a good addition to the world and for those hardcore fans who can't get enough of Camp Half-Blood.

    It's not as the same quality as the second one.. the drawing was very simple, no much details and the story missed a lot of things .. I read the book a six months ago and I forgot things so while reading the graphic novel some parts were confusing.

    Having read the entire series as a whole years ago, I already knew what I was getting into beofre starting this graphic novel version of the story. And even though it is obvious going into the story that you won't be getting the completely story, the beautiful illustrations more than made up for the lack of info. Beautifully drawn and a whole lot of fun. I would say my first foray into the graphic novel world was a huge success and now I want more. I will definitely be continuing the series (agai Having read the entire series as a whole years ago, I already knew what I was getting into beofre starting this graphic novel version of the story.

Al jaren staat het boek op mijn wensenlijst, maar het komt er gewoon niet van. Ik was dan ook heel dankbaar dat deze versie op mijn pad kwam!  Absoluut een toffe tekenstijl, en het verhaal leent zich er ook echt toe om in stripvorm gebracht te worden. Hoewel ik in het begin echt het gevoel had iets te snel door het verhaal te vliegen, heb ik wel echt genoten van het lezen. Ik kan niet wachten op het tweede deel ♡ www.facebook.com/thebookbabecisz

    Let me admit that although I have little to no experience in graphic novels, I am a minor art geek. I draw in my free time when I'm not in a mood to pick up a book. I look at art like a predator looks at its prey. Calculating. Judging. And as I looked upon the art in this graphic novel I almost instantly cringed. Our cast did not look like twelve year olds. Their faces changed from time to time and I had to pause to figure if it was the same person.

It didn't maintain the same awesomeness as the real book. Frowny faces. The storyline was the same with a few missing holes here and there. The book itself obviously has more details and you can't fit everything into a graphic novel. But what you can do is try to make the story flow smoothly and eloquently. More frowny faces. Do I recommend? Nope. To put this lightly, it's sort of a waste of time. But what I would want to shove in your face is the actual novel.

    Ah. Disappointment. This was super quick read, but I really didn't like it. I knew going into this that it was different from the book, but I was just very disappointed. The characters were very different than I imagined them. The art style was not the best. It was not that funny. And it generally took away the feel of the book, which I couldn't stand. If you're a fan of the series, you might be interested in reading this, but, personally, I didn't like it at all.

    3.5* This was a simple and fast read. I didn't particulary like the art work, they could have done something so much better, especially for the Underworld part. Some parts had beautiful colors but the art itself didn't appeal that much to me. Really liked getting back to our first encounter with Percy though.

    "Look, I didn't want to be a half-blood. I never asked to be the son of a Greek god." This review is for Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief: The Graphic Novel, which has been adapted by Robert Vendetti from Rick Riordan's novel, the first in the "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" series. The art work is by Attila Futaki and Jose Villarrubia. The advertising blurb says, "Percy Jackson, half boy, half god, all hero." It certainly sounded exciting. In fact though, it is rather a disappointing read "Look, I didn't want to be a half-blood. I never asked to be the son of a Greek god."

The art work is by Attila Futaki and Jose Villarrubia. The advertising blurb says, "Percy Jackson, half boy, half god, all hero." It certainly sounded exciting. In fact though, it is rather a disappointing read. The premise is that twelve-year-old Percy is the son of a mortal woman and Poseidon, god of the sea. He lives with his natural mother, and her partner, who is a classic layabout thug. The action starts in a museum, where an apparently paraplegic teacher is lecturing the class about the Greek gods. Soon however, supernatural events start to happen, and Percy is sent to a summer camp for "halfbloods" or demigods like himself. There he is given a unique quest, which only he can perform, to retrieve Zeus's missing lightning bolt from Hades. He chooses two friends, predictably one male and one spunky female, to prevent an imminent war between the gods, Zeus and Poseidon. Not having read the original novel, and having given up on the film, perhaps I was expecting too much from this graphic novel. It may be that if you are already an enthusiast for the series, this reminder may be an enjoyable read. But the illustrations were sketchily drawn, and the colouring not particularly original or interesting. So the story seemed too formulaic for my taste, and the illustrations, which I had hoped would carry it along, just didn't. Even the print seemed rather small for this type of work, and difficult to read, sometimes being the reverse of the convention, such as white type on a green background. There are a lot of action sequences, many of which are very violent, but since the reader has not had the opportunity to engage with any of the supernatural creatures, there is no build-up and just as Greek figures and legends are name-dropped into the mix, it all seems rather haphazard and random. Fights do not seem to be very exciting or suspenseful. At one point one of the three main characters actually says, "Deux ex machina anyone?" and at that point I admit I did have a little chuckle. But in the main, the "flip" element, where everything is played for laughs, or with a knowing air, leaves me cold. All the hallmarks of a typical teenage read are here. Problems at school, in this case dyslexia, a home life which could be just perfect - if only... There is one "good" parent, and one "bad". There are "monsters" whom only our hero can defeat. There is a baddie, who turns out to be trustworthy after all - and a "friend" who is revealed to be the exact opposite. There is an unusual girl, clearly destined to be a possible romantic interest for our hero. It could have been so much better. And there may be much that has been missed out of Rick Riordan's novel, as it is possible to read this graphic novel in about an hour. So perhaps that would be a good read. There are some great stories in the Greek myths, and a new take on them is certainly an attractive idea. Possibly the original novel is exciting and has more appeal. This, however, does not.

    I literally read this graphic novel in 30 minutes. It’s so fast-paced and there aren’t that many dialogs. In general, I didn’t find it bad but…the illustrations were awful. The characters weren’t portrayed at all as I imagined them. While Percy and cie were supposed to look like kids, they were drawn as if they were 17-18 years old. Also, the world-building looked so cheap. More color than actual buildings or stuff here and there. I didn’t feel the story's deepness enough for me to be captivated.

The personality of the characters was fine but in a graphic novel the appearance is very important in my opinion so when the face doesn’t go with the personality and your view of those characters, it’s not a good thing. Also, I didn’t feel the friendship between Percy and Grover at all, only a small connection. No atmosphere, no chemistry, it was flat. It does follow the story, or at least tries to. The most important lines are there but many things are missing still (which I guess I can understand.) Overall, it was okay but you’re definitely not missing a thing by choosing to not read it.

    This is the graphic novel version of the first book in Riordan’s popular Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. Percy (a/k/a Perseus) is a 12-year-old dyslexic kid who fears he’s about to fail out of yet another school, disappointing his mother and antagonizing his stepfather. But in fact, he is about to discover that he is the son of Poseidon, a half-blood, and destined to retrieve Zeus’s missing lightning bolt from Hades.

I might have enjoyed this fantasy novel in the traditional book format. But the graphic novel is not to my liking at all. The print is tiny and all the color on the page makes it hard on my older eyes (especially when they reverse print – white font on green background, for example). I found myself disinterested in the dark images and just skipping ahead to read the dialogue. As a result, I feel that I missed a lot of the story. I can see where some children would be really attracted to this format, however I also think the images are very violent.

Don't get me started on Grover. GROVER HAS CURLY HAIR!!!!!!!! I know curly hair is a pain in the butt to draw, but HONESTLY. He doesn't look a bit Grover-ish. And Annabeth and Percy don't look a bit like they're twelve years old. They look like they're sixteen. This graphic novel is the pits.

    I love the overall story, but I think they left out A LOT of important elements that the original version had. I didn't think the dialogue was nearly as sarcastic and humorous, and some of the events that effect future problems in the story were brushed over or not mentioned. Obviously I know a graphic novel can't be a one for one transition, but it could have at least captured the overall essence a little better. Also, I thought the artwork kind of jumped all over the place. You could definitel I love the overall story, but I think they left out A LOT of important elements that the original version had.

    I wondered, as I picked up this slim volume, how would they ever get the story line, let alone all of the mention of Greek gods and goddesses, into it? Surprise! They don't! This is a "greatest hits" EP of the book. Not even all of the most interesting action scenes are in it. While it was fun to see how someone else visualized the scenes, this is not a book you could read and maybe even follow without reading its novel cousin.
