    I already love the Percy Jackson series so much. It's on the young side of Young Adult, to be sure. But it is just so damn fun I can't help but love it. Sea of Monsters was a more accurate representation of the second book. The first one left out some fairly key scenes and characters. This one was spot on, if my memory serves me correctly... which it probably doesn't but whatever. I loved it. That's what matters. I am not wowed by the artwork by any means but it isn't the worst I have ever seen e I already love the Percy Jackson series so much. It's on the young side of Young Adult, to be sure.

I am not wowed by the artwork by any means but it isn't the worst I have ever seen either. The characters are all drawn the way they are described and the monsters are all pretty damn monstrous. I think what I am enjoying most about the graphic novel version of this series is that they focus on the darker elements of the series. I know I said that in my review for the first one, but its important. I think a lot of people don't like that about this series but for me? It's what I like the most. I like the Dark Side. You're totally shocked right? Anyway, if you like comics and you enjoyed the Percy Jackson books pick these up. They're super quick and fun and entertaining. Come to the dark side.

    *3.5 stars* Well this was a great improvement from volume one! Still, there are some things that could have been much much better anyway. For example, Clarisse sure is better drawn in this volume but she looks so...savage while in the movie and book she didn’t look or seem to be so...tomboy and masculine above that other characteristic. I did not like the way she was pictured. Same thing for Luke—seriously, he looked like a man in this 30s!—and Thalia. What’s with Thalia being all emo/gothic-like? *3.5 stars* Well this was a great improvement from volume one! Still, there are some things that could have been much much better anyway.

I don’t have anything against those kinds of characters but it did not seem like the right fit for her at all. Again, a big difference from the movie. The story was interesting enough and I liked the world-building and the way it was drawn. Again, as the first volume, this is fast-paced and intriguing. The relationships are more obvious and the bonds deeper as well. Very surprising and a pleasant read that was worth it. It seems to only get better and better and that is wonderful. I look very forward to reading the next graphic novel in the series.

    Even though I have read this series before, after reading and absolutely loving the first book in graphic novel form, I knew I needed to read them all over again in the same way. It is amazing how much I had forgotten that the graphic novels helped me to remember. Most of all though, I am so happy that the sarcastic humor of Percy and his friends, still holds strong in these. It is one thing I truly did not forget about loving when it came to this series and it's spin off.

It is one thing I truly did not forget about loving when it came to this series and it's spin off. Once again the pages were filled not only with Riordan's amazing wit and writing but beautifully done illustrations that were hard to tear my eyes from. I love the artist's rendition of all the characters, in both physical appearance and being able to capture their personality in said appearance unto the pages. Wonderfully done!

    The illustrators did such a great job! This graphic novel is my favorite of the series. I had so much fun reading this. I flew through it so quickly. After reading this, I think I'll be picking up graphic novels more often.

    this is an okay book but a waste of time if you ask me their was some moments that I did not see when I watched the movie. but their is not the felling of what is this what is that from the first one. it seems like a repeat of the first book but with more things. it not like the harry potter sires were their all was something new and mysterious. that is all I have to say without spoilers because no one spoilers.

    More of a supplement to the series. It would be easier to understand after reading the book. Still interesting to see how it would pan out artistically.

    I thought this book was good. It was easy to read through, like most graphic novels. It had nice moments of action, where there was fighting, and I like the twists and turns the plots had as I read further in the book. If you like action science fiction type books, this would be a good graphic novel for you.

    This was strides better than the first one in my opinion. The art was way more consistent, and they hit every important plot point. Compared to the novel, it definitely lacks that humor that the novels have, but I didn't notice nearly as much as I did in the first one.

    Devann

    Second verse, same as the first. Definitely a fun bit of nostalgia but it rushes through the plot points at breakneck speed so I wouldn't recommend it unless you have read the novel first. Still, it's a nice companion to the series and it's interesting to see the story in a different format [even though I'm still not the biggest fan of the art style]

    I started reading this book because I was required to read graphic novels for class. As the book progressed, I started to get bored with it because I missed the details of the original book. There were some parts from the book that I missed that weren't in the graphic novel. I believe that it would be better if I hadn't read the original book first.

    Actual rating: 3.5/5 stars It's a nice graphic novel, but the characters don't really look like how I imagined it... Oh well, it was still pretty good, but of course the book is better with all the details. This GN is a nice way to freshen up your memory after a long time not reading the actual books ;) PS: This review counts also for Sea of Monsters & The Titan's Curse. I read them all on the same day and I don't think it gets better or worse with each GN. It just stays on the same lever.

    This second volume of the Percy Jackson graphic adaptations is excellent, quite an improvement on the first. The story is more complete, and the artwork (by the same artist) is better. Now, on to Book 3!

    the drawing was really good, It's good to read it after the novel since there is no good movies for it, the graphic novel will replace it

    Rating: 3.5 stars This book was better than the first one, the artwork was slightly better (though I'm still not satisfied by it, Percy and Annabeth are prettier than that) and the actual story was more accurate. Some things were left out, but they can be overlooked because they're not that major. But, it's Percy Jackson so I can't possibly not love it!

    As my wife has said, the graphic novel was a nice review of the book. I missed reading Percy's thoughts, they were pretty funny at times, but over all I like this graphic novel.

    This one was much better than the first one, but I still can't help but see all of the important plot points that are simply overlooked in order to rush the plot along.

(About the author.) Rick Riordan's interest in literature and writing the Percy Jackson series comes from the birth of his daughter Hayley. His influence of writing styles comes from his teenage years at school where he read The Lord of The Rings and his fascination with Greek and Norse mythology. He is currently 48years of age and noted as being the NewYork Times, best selling author of the Percy Jackson Series, The Kane Chronicles and The Heroes of Olympia. He graduated from the University of Texas at Austin, Texas and has received the Hampshire Book Award. The genre, Rick writes in, is best described as fantasy relying on the use of fictitious information made relating to the history of the Greek Gods. This he incorporates with the modern era where teenagers in the present time are involved in this interesting mix. The audience Rick writes for, is mostly teenagers and those who have a interest in novels and information about the Greek Gods. Adventure and mystery are strong features in his novels. Readers of his novels need to be prepared to struggle through some boring parts where little action takes place, before action comes in to encourage the reader to continue engaging in the storyline. There are a few key characters, who are mostly mythological, who are represented as present day teenagers. The first character is Percy. He is one of two sons of Piosdan, the God of The Sea. Percy tends to experience trouble. He is regularly in fights, been expelled from each school he has attended and never seems to experience many good things, except meeting his actual dad, but loses his stepfather. He acts courageously with strength when he is connected with water, just as the Greek God Piosdan is. Anabeth, is the daughter of Athena. She on the other hand is wise, courageous and outgoing. Athena is a thinker. She thinks ahead of her self in her mind how to tackle possible problems and obstacles that may eventuates. An example of this is when she has to meet the mother's enemies or their children and she plans for their weaknesses and how she may defeat them. Clarice is the daughter of Aries, the 'god of war.' She is a strong person, especially with her personality. She will antagonise Percy and his brother Tyson, by bullying them physically and verbally by fighting and referring to them in a negative manner, using names. Tyson, Percy's brother and the son of Piosdan, is a victim of others and there tormenting him because of his features, especially having only one eye (Cyclops.) He is shy and weak, not identifying how to stand up for himself. He is frowned upon by all those he meets, except by his family and immediate friends. He eventually dies when he is eaten by other Greek God, 'Siren.' The main theme of this story is survival and perseverance. The story is based on these teenagers locating 'The Golden Fleece,' (an object that contains mysterious powers-healing powers) and their ability to face and win battles and challenges of the mythical creatures that try to obstruct their journey. Although the battles are presumably difficult, the perseverance they display is in their efforts to save 'Grover,' a Sagitor (half man, half goat) and the tree which is their base camp during the summer. The language Rick, the author uses, is descriptive and persuasive. Descriptive, as the use of adjectives, such as "the razor -sharp yellow teeth with rusted iron barbs," and " foul smelling," "repulsive," each add more meaning to the text and engage you to get a vision in your mind of the battle itself. The persuasiveness of the language, and the manner he uses by adding some excitement in slower parts of the novel make it backward to finish reading at any point, especially at the end of a chapter. He kind of holds you to ransom by making you ponder about the next challenge or experience the characters, especially Percy may encounter. The novel has a lot of dialogue where you can feel the tension and experience of the moment, by Percy. I liked, the novel as it helped me gain a greater appreciation and interest in the many Greek Gods and their origins. I would recommend this novel to others my age who like the type of suspense and action the author Rick employs. His good story line and style have encouraged me to read another of his novels, 'Heroes of Olympus, The Lost Hero.'
