    I already love the Percy Jackson series so much. It's on the young side of Young Adult, to be sure. But it is just so damn fun I can't help but love it. Sea of Monsters was a more accurate representation of the second book. The first one left out some fairly key scenes and characters. This one was spot on, if my memory serves me correctly... which it probably doesn't but whatever. I loved it. That's what matters. I am not wowed by the artwork by any means but it isn't the worst I have ever seen e I already love the Percy Jackson series so much. It's on the young side of Young Adult, to be sure.

I am not wowed by the artwork by any means but it isn't the worst I have ever seen either. The characters are all drawn the way they are described and the monsters are all pretty damn monstrous. I think what I am enjoying most about the graphic novel version of this series is that they focus on the darker elements of the series. I know I said that in my review for the first one, but its important. I think a lot of people don't like that about this series but for me? It's what I like the most. I like the Dark Side. You're totally shocked right? Anyway, if you like comics and you enjoyed the Percy Jackson books pick these up. They're super quick and fun and entertaining. Come to the dark side.

    Even though I have read this series before, after reading and absolutely loving the first book in graphic novel form, I knew I needed to read them all over again in the same way. It is amazing how much I had forgotten that the graphic novels helped me to remember. Most of all though, I am so happy that the sarcastic humor of Percy and his friends, still holds strong in these. It is one thing I truly did not forget about loving when it came to this series and it's spin off.

It is one thing I truly did not forget about loving when it came to this series and it's spin off. Once again the pages were filled not only with Riordan's amazing wit and writing but beautifully done illustrations that were hard to tear my eyes from. I love the artist's rendition of all the characters, in both physical appearance and being able to capture their personality in said appearance unto the pages. Wonderfully done!

    While I liked the first graphic novel, I enjoyed this one more. It did skip over some parts however, the flow of the story was a lot smoother. I loved that there were little details in the illustrations that added more of the story. These have been so fun to read and I can't wait to continue!

    *3.5 stars* Well this was a great improvement from volume one! Still, there are some things that could have been much much better anyway. For example, Clarisse sure is better drawn in this volume but she looks so...savage while in the movie and book she didn’t look or seem to be so...tomboy and masculine above that other characteristic. I did not like the way she was pictured. Same thing for Luke—seriously, he looked like a man in this 30s!—and Thalia. What’s with Thalia being all emo/gothic-like? *3.5 stars* Well this was a great improvement from volume one! Still, there are some things that could have been much much better anyway.

I don’t have anything against those kinds of characters but it did not seem like the right fit for her at all. Again, a big difference from the movie. The story was interesting enough and I liked the world-building and the way it was drawn. Again, as the first volume, this is fast-paced and intriguing. The relationships are more obvious and the bonds deeper as well. Very surprising and a pleasant read that was worth it. It seems to only get better and better and that is wonderful. I look very forward to reading the next graphic novel in the series.

    The illustrators did such a great job! This graphic novel is my favorite of the series. I had so much fun reading this. I flew through it so quickly. After reading this, I think I'll be picking up graphic novels more often.

    this is an okay book but a waste of time if you ask me their was some moments that I did not see when I watched the movie. but their is not the felling of what is this what is that from the first one. it seems like a repeat of the first book but with more things. it not like the harry potter sires were their all was something new and mysterious. that is all I have to say without spoilers because no one spoilers.

    More of a supplement to the series. It would be easier to understand after reading the book. Still interesting to see how it would pan out artistically.

    I thought this book was good. It was easy to read through, like most graphic novels. It had nice moments of action, where there was fighting, and I like the twists and turns the plots had as I read further in the book. If you like action science fiction type books, this would be a good graphic novel for you.

    This was strides better than the first one in my opinion. The art was way more consistent, and they hit every important plot point. Compared to the novel, it definitely lacks that humor that the novels have, but I didn't notice nearly as much as I did in the first one.

    Devann

    Second verse, same as the first. Definitely a fun bit of nostalgia but it rushes through the plot points at breakneck speed so I wouldn't recommend it unless you have read the novel first. Still, it's a nice companion to the series and it's interesting to see the story in a different format [even though I'm still not the biggest fan of the art style]

    I started reading this book because I was required to read graphic novels for class. As the book progressed, I started to get bored with it because I missed the details of the original book. There were some parts from the book that I missed that weren't in the graphic novel. I believe that it would be better if I hadn't read the original book first.

    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.

    General Rating: 6/10 Personal Rating: -2/10 Boy, I hate giving this rating to Rick Riordan. However, it's not his fault that once again someone else butchered this story. I got to say that this was better than the previous graphic novel, the color palette it's way more colorful, BUT I really (really) hate the drawing style. Now, that's personal but the real problem with the illustrations is that they do not show the characters' emotions: Percy could be feeling upset but his face would look either l General Rating: 6/10 Personal Rating: -2/10 Boy, I hate giving this rating to Rick Riordan.

    This second volume of the Percy Jackson graphic adaptations is excellent, quite an improvement on the first. The story is more complete, and the artwork (by the same artist) is better. Now, on to Book 3!

    The first thing I want to say is that I didn't give this book a star rating for a reason. It's not because I think this is a bad graphic novel. It certainly is not. I have enjoyed reading this graphic novel. It's just that I haven’t read many graphic novels, to give an honest rating. I have too little experience and reference. I don't know if I will give a review after reading more graphic novels or if I leave it like this. I also find it harder to judge a graphic novel than a book.

I have enjoyed reading this graphic novel. It's just that I haven’t read many graphic novels, to give an honest rating. I have too little experience and reference. I don't know if I will give a review after reading more graphic novels or if I leave it like this. I also find it harder to judge a graphic novel than a book. In my study (design, illustration) I am currently discussing graphic novels. I know very little about graphic novels and find it very interesting to learn more about it. For my lesson, I read “Making Comics” by Scott McCloud. It's a comic about how to make comics, which I think is the best way to learn about comics. These lessons have made me want to know more about graphic novels and comics. I didn’t read many, but I want to change that. I'm a big fan of Rick Riordan and the Percy Jackson series, so when I saw this graphic novel, I couldn't help but take it to read. I was curious what I would think of this version of Percy Jackson, because I am already so familiar with the books. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the first book, so I took this one with me. I didn't think it would make a big problem, because I already know the story so well. But I still plan on reading the first one. I don't think I'll make you happy with an analysis of this graphic novel and that I'm going to discuss things as moment to moment. That’s also not why I have read this novel. I will probably still look at it with an artistic eye. It is too difficult to stop that. The first thing I noticed when I saw this novel was that the novel is much thinner than the original. That is of course logical. You no longer need descriptions and you don’t have to describe the thought process of the characters. While reading this, I found out that a few details had changed. Since when does Percy love skateboarding and where's Luke's scar? I also missed Rick Riordan's humor, which is one of the reasons I love his books so much. His books always put a smile on my face. This graphic novel felt much more serious. It feels like it was made for an older audience. I also feel that the dark side of the book was shown a lot more, not that that's bad. It is interesting to see the story from a different angle, but I really missed the humor, which is what makes Percy Percy in my opinion. I also found that there was less backstory and character development present in the novel than in the normal book, but it is also possible that this is more striking, because I already know the book so well. When I first started reading, I had to get used to the drawing style. I thought it looked very chaotic. I had somehow expected a different drawing style for this story. I thought this looked so grown up, but that's probably also because it's drawn so realistically. The characters also look much older, and meaner too. I found Clarisse very masculine. But the realistic drawing style also makes expressions appear much more human, not exaggerated at all. It feels expressive and full of feeling. I noticed that I started to appreciate the drawing style more and more. The drawing style also works very well in action scenes, that's where the style really comes into its own and there are quite a few action scenes in this novel. The use of color gave the novel atmosphere, but also kept it calm. Due to the many details and lines, the novel quickly looks chaotic, but because one color is central, there is still peace. It also ensures that the spreads fit together so nicely, and you notice that the tension is increasing by the colors. The entire backgrounds are made so beautifully too. You also know better where a character is through them. I also really like the variation of the panels. The novel is easy and quick to read. Lots of action and a fast pace. There is not much dialogue and the text is different and simpler than I am used to from the book. The text also feels more childlike than the book. But it is a novel you keep reading. It continues to interest you. I like the books more, but this is certainly not a wrong variation and I am curious about the other novels.
