Let's talk about artwork, shall we?!

Spoiler Alert!

Thalia is back. The only problem is- she looks like a bro, brah. 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 gre

these are definitely getting better in quality but -1 star for not including the dam scene
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.

Something I love about the Titans Curse is the emotional connections made throughout the book. Unfortunately, that was either glossed over or left out completely in this graphic novel. I felt like this skipped so much! Maybe it wasn't totally necessary to the plot but it adds context that can really help a story feel complete. Something else that frustrated me was the illustrations of character's faces. It seemed like they kept shifting art styles each page which left me pondering who was who mo ...more

i don't like these comics at all. all of the characters look so strange and not how they're supposed to look. especially apollo in this one gave me the creeps

I enjoyed this graphic novel also but I really wish they didn't skip the dam scene! Besides that I still enjoyed seeing the illustration.

Yeah...I'll just leave this here

And not look back
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 :)))

I love these graphic novels! They're so fun to read along with the books, and I highly recommend doing so.
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.

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...

A quick refresher to remind me what happened. It's been maybe 5 years since I read this book. One of my bookish goal for this year is to finish the Percy Jackson series.
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. On his right is Hades above poor little Nico Di Angelo (someone who I'm really starting to feel sorry f ...more
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. And Thalia was a

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

I think this book was ok, not that I didn't like it, but it definitely isn't my favorite out of the series either. I thought it was cool that Percy could talk to horses now. I also thought Black Jack calling Percy boss, even though Percy repeatedly tells him not too is funny. In this book Annabeth is kidnapped and forced to hold the weight of the world on her shoulders, literally! Atlas and her switch places and she has to actually hold the weight of the world on her shoulders. This whole book i ...more

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.

This adaptation is still sub-par in my opinion, because it takes out and adjusts things from the actual book. One of the biggest things that are missing was the whole "Dam" scene. Where did that go? Was having dumb teenage wordplay scraped for something else? That's pretty unfortunate.
As far as the artwork goes, my previous complaints still stand, but by the end of the book, both Percy and Annabeth have grey streaks in their hair (view spoiler) and it's ki

I just have one question, why does Percy have brown eyes? Last I checked, they were sea green.

Deducting one star because I feel like once again most of the humorous scenes from the books were skipped.

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

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 ...more
This is the third book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians graphic novel series. We have been overdosing a bit on Percy Jackson, ever since the book club our girls belong to selected the first book in the series, The Lightning Thief, for their January 2014 selection.

Our girls are totally engrossed in Percy's adventures and are anxiously awaiting the last book in the next series to be published. Our youngest especially, has read these books with a fervor I haven't seen since she got into her

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.
