From the Publisher
A new prophecy leads to a dangerous quest.
When Percy receives an urgent distress call from Grover, he immediately prepares for battle. He knows he'll need his powerful demigod allies, Annabeth and Thalia, at his side; his trusty bronze sword, Riptide; and a ride from his mom.
The demigods race to the rescue, only to find that Grover has made an important discovery: two new powerful half-bloods, whose parentage is unknown. But that's not all that awaits them. The Titan lord, Kronos, has set up his most devious trap yet, and the young heroes have just fallen prey.
Now, Percy and his friends are faced with their most dangerous challenge-the chilling prophecy of the Titan's Curse. They must rescue the goddess Artemis by the Winter Solstice, or all will be lost including Annabeth.
Rick Riordan's internationally best-sellingThe Titan's Cursebecomes a graphic novel in the hands of comic-book luminaries Robert Venditti, Attila Futaki, and Greg Guilhaumond.

As readers of Riordan's series know, a war between Titans and gods is stirring, and the goddess Artemis is crucial to preparations. But five days before the winter solstice, when she must participate in the summit of the gods, she goes missing. Several of her hunters set out to find her, and though they initially refuse Percy a place in the quest, they eventually join forces for a perilous journey that leads to a showdown with the Titan Atlas and more than one heartrending death. Venditti (The Surrogates) remolds the tale into sequential form, successfully interspersing exposition, action, and revelation at a breathless pace appropriate to the novel. Futaki envisions the beloved characters clearly, and Guilhaumond finds a palette that nicely evokes our hero's accruing burdens. Although all of myth's mayhem-makers are present, from manticore to dragon-tooth soldiers to the titanic Talos, they are somewhat robbed of their terrible awesomeness by the scale of the page composition and panel size. Nevertheless, no fan will be able to turn this down. - Jesse Karp-Booklist
