Now, this is not to say that if she wants to look like a boy that I am opposed to it. By all means, look like a bro, brah. That's not my issue. MY issue is that Percy, Thalia, Nico and sometimes even Grover ALL look like Thalia. There is almost no discernible trait that makes it possible for you to tell them apart. In fact in one sequence, Thalia, Nico and Percy are all wearing green jackets. So you have close-up shots of each of them and you don't really know who the fuck is actually talking. Which is great when you're trying to follow a storyline. Right? Wrong. So this one gets 2 shiny stars removed. I know Thalia was described as having short black hair, but come on, brah! You could totally give her some fancier eye lashes or something to make her stand out like a girl. You're a fucking artist. That's literally your one job in life. Brush up on your skills a bit before the release of book 4 please! It really took me out of the story. Lastly, this one was overwhelmingly wordy to me. A little too drawn out, not nearly as exciting to me as the previous two. I think some big scenes were rushed through while the boring shit was dragged out for all eternity. I really hope the next one is better because this just wasn't up to the standards I had come to expect after the first two.

    Come on. Did someone rip out pages of my copy? Where is the Dam Scene? Why does Apollo look like a 70 year old man? Who is that tall, dark-haired boy in the beginning AND on the cover? Oh, it's Thalia? All these questions and more coming to aggravating graphic novels near you.

    Once again this was a pretty fun way to spend a half an hour but I wouldn't recommend reading it before you read the book because it definitely runs through everything pretty quickly. Also I love Thalia and Nico :)))

    While I still liked it and it was a lot of fun, this had intense issues of plot being left out of the last two Novels and just expecting you read the books. It’s basically the Harry Potter Movies where you are expected to fill in the holes yourself and that’s just lazy...

    I wasn't a huge of this.. I did not like the way the characters looked, and so many parts were taken out. This is the last Graphic Novel that was released, i'm sad I wish there was more. This was definitely my least favourite of the three.

    I love the cover art! I think I'd love anything that shows Percy looking all impressive and powerful--the true son of a sea god--but this image really stands out to me. You've got the faces of the Big Three, with Poseidon front and centre above his son. Thalia is on his left, holding Aegis, her terrifying shield and summoning lightning in her "daughter of Zeus" move, with Zeus' face above her.

You've got the faces of the Big Three, with Poseidon front and centre above his son. Thalia is on his left, holding Aegis, her terrifying shield and summoning lightning in her "daughter of Zeus" move, with Zeus' face above her. On his right is Hades above poor little Nico Di Angelo (someone who I'm really starting to feel sorry for after reading HoH, but also wish Riordan would cut the kid SOME slack on the 'everybody hates me' plotline). This graphic novel is as action-packed as the other two before it, although my lower rating comes from my disappointment in one particular area. Firstly, is the depiction of Thalia. I spent the first third of the book trying to figure out who the dark-haired boy with Percy was. Thalia is supposed to be a little bad-ass, with short, spiky hair, a leather jacket and combat boots, but I quite literally could not figure her out until Apollo showed up and named her as the daughter of Zeus. There were SOME pages where Thalia is shown very close up with thick lashes and feminine features, but for the most part, she looks like a scrawny, poorly drawn male. I'm disappointed in the artist here, but also in Riordan failing to stop this. We really couldn't make Thalia LOOK like Thalia, when Riordan himself already has her depicted in his book The Demigod Diaries? I also struggle with the fact that all the faces of the older men in this book look too intense and almost mean, no matter what emotion they are trying to convey. There's one scene where Chiron is comforting Percy, but his expression looks just downright cruel. I'm sad to critique the art of this graphic novel, but it really does bother me that there's a breakdown in the characters. Subjective interpretation is always a factor in these graphic novel-spin offs, but Thalia is so undefined and poorly represented that I, as an adult reader with an English degree, who has read the Percy Jackson book multiple times, had a lot of difficulty figuring out who the tall, scrawny boy was. Moreover, the expressions of the characters are just as important. The dialogue is almost secondary to the images in a graphic novel, but in many of the scenes to take away the dialogue would be to completely alter the story in the reader's interpretation. The book does a good job at capturing the story and it follows a trimmed version of he plot of The Titan's Curse but if you're looking for a more faithful adaptation, the first two graphic novels were far better. Here's to hoping The Battle of the Labyrinth is a bit more on the mark...

    I know I should just give up on reading these but... they're so short, I can't help it. Plus, it was literally laying around in my house and within reach of me on the couch. So I think that maybe the art, overall, is marginally better in this one than The Lightning Thief: The Graphic Novel or The Sea of Monsters: The Graphic Novel, but still pretty atrocious. This time around it was horrible because the faces were so inconsistent. At one point, Percy looks like a 30-year old man.

This time around it was horrible because the faces were so inconsistent. At one point, Percy looks like a 30-year old man. And Thalia was all over the place. At times, she looked super masculine and I actually thought she was a dude, though I couldn't figure out who. I swear she had a goatee. In another panel, the goatee was gone and she looked like a girl. Mainly Percy and Thalia throughout the book changed faces and appearances like 10 times. It was absurd. And no, I double-checked to make sure I wasn't mixing them up with each other or a different character. The thing is that when Futaki is not drawing faces, his art is not half-bad. Unfortunately, there is a cast of characters in this series. The story is fine (though The Titan's Curse has always been my least favorite of the PJATO series) and continues to be well condensed and transformed to fit a short graphic novel. But yikes, the art. **Did I miss the part in the book where Percy gets a ride from his mom, like it says happens in the description????

    This is a graphic novel adaptation of the third book In the Percy Jackson series. When Annabeth disappears on a mission to bring 2 newly discovered Half-bloods to safety, it sets off a chain of events that will lead Percy and company on a cross-country quest.

There will be tons of adventure as they face numerous foes and traps along the way. While I thoroughly enjoyed this adaptation, I think it would be confusing at times to anyone who is not familiar with the novel already. Some of this is due to the limitations of details that can be presented in this form. They are taking a several hundred page story and boiling it down into what is basically a long comic book. The other factor that makes it confusing at times is that the artwork has a fairly vague nature to it. I even found it hard to distinguish Percy from Thalia at certain points of the story. Usually I can tell a nearly sixteen year old girl from a fourteen year old boy with a single glance. Overall I liked this adaptation and would recommend it to fans of the series. But I would say, it is more of an add-on. I would go with the actual novel itself if I had to make a choice between the two.

    It was pretty good. This is my favorite of the books, so I guess I was expecting better. I have the usual complaints: Lots of events are left out. Everyone looks older, and Thalia looks like a man. But it was fun to read.

    For the last week or so I have been powering through this series. Or at least the ones that are out right now. I'm officially hooked- and while I've read almost all of Riordan's novels I will read continue to read these- every last one. I know they are children's books but I just can't get enough. I am even staring at my new copy of the Norse god series as I write this. I am itching to get started on this one too. I've noticed that there are some small differences from the original series. Howeve For the last week or so I have been powering through this series. Or at least the ones that are out right now. I'm officially hooked- and while I've read almost all of Riordan's novels I will read continue to read these- every last one. I know they are children's books but I just can't get enough. I am even staring at my new copy of the Norse god series as I write this. I am itching to get started on this one too. I've noticed that there are some small differences from the original series. However, that is to be expected . This a graphic novel- which is about 1/3 the length of the original. Therefore, there will be parts of the story missing. For the most part all the missing parts have been relatively small- even in this one. Just to be sure, I pulled my copy of the original off the shelves and spent some time comparing before posting this review. I saw a bunch of reviews saying that the dam scene was missing- it was there and it wasn't very different at all. The scenes with Atlas were some of my favorite from the original. This part was rushed in the graphic novel. Annabeth and Percy were almost entirely cut from it. The illustrations in this one were much darker than the first two. And I loved it. This was where the story started to take a dark turn- this graphic novel represents that perfectly. It truly focuses on the daunting tasks that were placed on these young teens. For those of you who miss the series this is a quick and entertaining way to revisit Percy's world. You won't be sorry you picked it up. I'm having a hard time waiting for Book 4. And I know that I will pick up all his other graphic novels too. All of Riordan's series make me feel like a kid again- sometimes we all need that. :)

    I would give the book, “Titan’s Curse,” 5 out of 5 stars. The book was already compacted with action in the beginning where Percy, the protagonist fought with Mr. Thorn. Mr. Thorn managed to capture Annabeth, who was Percy’s friend, and escape. He was very sad and angry when Annabeth got captured. Right there, the reader gets the feeling of curiosity. The reader immediately tries to guess what would happens to Annabeth.

This curiosity in readers makes the reader want to reach the end of the book as fast as possible. Additionally, in the beginning, two kids were introduced in the Percy Jackson series. The kids were Nico di Angelo and Bianca di Angelo. A satyr named Grover claimed that the two kids were half-bloods. Their parents remained a mystery throughout the book. This also builds curiosity in the reader because readers would want to find out who the parents of the kids were especially after the incident in which Bianca di Angelo killed a skeleton warrior with just a knife without any training. There were also many creative elements in the book. There was a sea creature that Percy found and named Bessi. As the book goes forward, readers find out that Bessi is very dangerous. Anyone that kills Bessi obtains an innumerable amount of power that is enough to overthrow Olympus, the place of the Gods. By the end of the book, the reader would have a wide range of feelings because Percy and other half-bloods managed to complete the quest and save Annabeth, but Bianca di Angelo died. I would definitely recommend this book.

Our youngest especially, has read these books with a fervor I haven't seen since she got into her beloved Warriors books. I know there's no way that I'll be able to keep up with her, but I'm enjoying the books very much myself. This graphic novel has a nicely condensed version of the story. Some of the characters were pretty confusing (like Thalia - I wasn't even sure if she was a girl from the drawings) and some of the expressions on the faces seemed to contradict the narrative. It was a very fast read and while we enjoyed it, we like the novels better.

    this book is actually a very quick read, but i didn't really enjoy it as much as the actual books there was a lot that was left out such as "the dam snack bar" joke which I found actually very sad. the drawing style was an acquired taste, due to the fact that the characters do not look the best (older) but the book does helps when it comes to visualizing things if need be. there are also many scenes that have been taken out of this book for example the novel starts with them already as Westover. this book is actually a very quick read, but i didn't really enjoy it as much as the actual books there was a lot that was left out such as "the dam snack bar" joke which I found actually very sad. the drawing style was an acquired taste, due to the fact that the characters do not look the best (older) but the book does helps when it comes to visualizing things if need be. there are also many scenes that have been taken out of this book for example the novel starts with them already as Westover.

    I enjoyed this third installment of the graphic adaptation of the Percy Jackson series. The story was well told. I did have a problem with the artwork in this one and wondered if perhaps it was done in too much haste. I often had difficulty in telling the characters apart. For example, there are three characters with short, dark hair, Percy, Thalia, and Nico. And they were often wearing similar clothes. In one scene I thought I was looking at Percy, and it turned out to be Thalia. Also, sometime I enjoyed this third installment of the graphic adaptation of the Percy Jackson series.

    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.

    *4.5 There were parts of this graphic novel that didn't exactly flow well, but I still loved it! Also, for some reason, it reminded me of some scenes that the first graphic novel missed, and there was NO DAM SCENE :( But like I said, I still loved this, and I really hope that the Battle of the Labryinth graphic novel gets released!

    I didn't like it all that much. There were some scenes missing--one of them my favorite, which would be the scene where they meet Annabeth's father--and it felt kind of rushed for me. The graphics aren't...all that good actually. I didn't enjoy this as much as I should, but I still liked it...I suppose.

    I'm pissed. I really am. What the freak?? Where is the funny dam moment? Why does Apollo says "I am so awesome" instead of "I am so cool"? Where is the percabeth-holding-the-sky moment? Where is it? Where are all these things which contributed to the marvellousness of the book?? Seriously. It's as if the horrible movie wasn't enough. Meh.

    I don't like graphic novels. That being said, I hated this book. I know hate is a strong words but I honestly never want to read this again. I may read one more graphic novel about a story I will not reveal. But this story, though I liked the movies, was horrific. Thats all I have to say.
