Now that that is out of the way, why is it I feel the need to apologize? If you listen in on the broadcast you will find out why, but to give you the long and short of it I partially based my review of his work on the Percy Jackson graphic novel on my movie going experience. I was comparing his vision of the story to that of the movie. I ha...more
I might have enjoyed this fantasy novel in the traditional book format....more
The story is based on dyslexic Percy Jackson discovering he is a demigod, with a dad as a Greek God, Poseidon, the God of the Seas and his mother, a mortal human.

While delivering her son to Camp Half Blood, along with protection from a satyr, known as Grover, his mother is abduc...more
Want to read an exciting book about Greek gods, scary creatures, friendship and a quest? Then you should read Percy Jackson & The Olympians The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. The Lightning Thief is available as a graphic novel or as a regular novel. This review is of the graphic novel version of the book. The story takes place mainly in New York and at a camp called Camp Half-Blood. The camp is a camp where people called half-bloods, who are half humans and half Greek gods, go to be protec...more
I’m not a fan of Rick Riordan, as I’m also not a fan of young adult novel. I buy and read this because it’s graphic novel, and it was also a sale item. I didn’t expect too much of its story, and while it has good illustration, I found that the cover didn’t eye catching at all.
It concept is not unique, and...more
Not great. Not disapointing.
The story was rushed, jumped around, and lacked some semi serious plot points. But none of that really bothered me.
What bothered me the most you ask???
Why in the hell does Annabelle look like a BOY???
No seriously she does...(and dammit I can't find a close up of her online. Grrr)
Find a copy and just look at Annabelle. I swear if she had been Aphrodite's daughter, and not Athena's her mother would disowned her.
Percy Jackson adalah putra Poseidon, sang dewa laut. Yang lahir justru saat seharusnya tidak terlahir lagi manusia-setengah dewa karena 3 dewa utama (Zeus, Poseidon dan Hades) membuat kesepakatan demikian untuk menghi...more
This graphic novel was very short and very simple. I did not enjoy the artwork. The children who were meant to be twelve looked to be high school age or older. In many graphic novels, there are certain frames which urge to provoke a certain feeling or idea. I feel like the artist missed their chance for an epiphany...more
Percy Jackson is tired of having to change schools, and tired of being picked on about his dyslexia. He seems like a normal tween, but is far from it, as he is soon to find out.
Zeus's lightning bolt has gone missing and it's up to Percy Jackson to find and return it before the God's go to war over it, destroying whatever lay in their path. Has Hades stolen...more
And I was well aware that in this format it would b...more
Things that I liked: I really enjoyed reading this, I believe I read it in one sitting. I liked how it was really close to what the book was like, instead of being closer to the movie. This graphic novel seemed to give more details to certain aspects to the story as a whole. We got to see characters, places, and so much more that may not have been best imagined in the movie...more
This is definitely a pared down version of the story, missing several key plot points and some really great action scenes. The artwork is ok but a lot of the characters faces look weird. There are also details about the character’s appearances that are different, the curly VS straight hair debacle. I would highly suggest reading the boo...more
The monsters were really cool though. They were exactly how I imagine them :P Some of the plot had been changed to fit a graphic novel but it was okay (it was better than the movie anyway :P) Some of the lines actually made me laughed even though it wasn't in the book so that...more
