You've read the book. You've seen the movie. Now submerge yourself in the thrilling, stunning, and action-packed graphic novel. Mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking out of the pages of twelve-year-old Percy Jackson's textbooks and into his life. And worse, he's angered a few of them. Zeus's master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect. Now, he and his friends have just ten days to find and return Zeus's stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. Series creator Rick Riordan joins forces with some of the biggest names in the comic book industry to tell the story of a boy who must unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yes! Essential to an adolescent's library. This was a great read, I couldn't put the book down. Page after page was filled with Percy's adventures.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Essential for any Percy Jackson fan. This book really puts detail into the Percy Jackson series. I was a little unsure when I bought it, but for the most part I am pleased. The only downfall for me is that I think that the illustration style doesn't fit the story, but overall, it is a must-read.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Bad, But Not Impressed Either Reason for Reading: This was a Cybils '10 nominee and I've just now been able to get a copy to read. This is a graphic adaptation of the novel of the same name and even though this is the first in the series I think it will be most enjoyed by those who have read the book. As a standalone, without knowledge of the book, the graphic novel isn't really that exciting of a story. It's been some years since I read the book and this is the only one in the series I've read, and I haven't seen the movie, so my mind wasn't fresh on the events but I do remember more happening that what happened in the graphic novel. For example, I specifically remembered a scene in the book with Medusa, which never occurred in this adaptation. It felt like explanations were missing and gaps were left in the flow of the story. I'm not that crazy with the artwork either; the faces have unnatural expressions. Overall, it's still the same story, so not a bad read, but I'm not overly impressed with this graphic adaptation.
