What I really enjoyed the most was that all of the darker elements of the PJ series are brought to light. But guess what- the world isn't sunshine and rainbows. I loved the artwork and thought they did a great job bringing the story to life. The characters looked how I pictured them and looked age-appropriate.
This was a much better representation than the movie. View all 4 comments. Jan 19, Mario rated it liked it Shelves: This was a really fun and fast read, which I really liked.
But what I didn't like is lack of Percy's humour, and most characters looked so different than as I imagined them.

Jan 06, Vicky N. Popsugar Reading Challenge - A book based on mythology. It is based on Greek Mythology. He travels to a camp filled with other demigods sons of a god and a human where he gets sent on a quest for Zeus' stolen lightning bolt.
So begins Percy Jackson's journey fighting angry gods and all kinds of mythical creatures. Percy Jackson is one of those stories that stick with you and you can pick at any moment and you'll have fun reading. It is the perfect story to get a kid into reading and falling in love with books.
They are filled with monsters, adventure and the perfect amount of comedy. And in comic form is no different. It is a shorten version of the book, but it is fun and lighthearted and will make you have a good time. Obviously it will never beat the book, but it is a good addition to the world and for those hardcore fans who can't get enough of Camp Half-Blood.
Mar 11, Raoofa Ibrahim rated it liked it Shelves: It's not as the same quality as the second one.. I read the book a six months ago and I forgot things so while reading the graphic novel some parts were confusing. Oct 10, Mlpmom Book Reviewer rated it really liked it Shelves: Having read the entire series as a whole years ago, I already knew what I was getting into beofre starting this graphic novel version of the story.
See a Problem?
And even though it is obvious going into the story that you won't be getting the completely story, the beautiful illustrations more than made up for the lack of info. Beautifully drawn and a whole lot of fun. I would say my first foray into the graphic novel world was a huge success and now I want more.
I will definitely be continuing the series agai Having read the entire series as a whole years ago, I already knew what I was getting into beofre starting this graphic novel version of the story.
I will definitely be continuing the series again through these novels. So much fun! Aardschudder, stormenbrengen, heer van de paarden. Heil, perseus Jackson, zoon van de Zeegod. Tot hij per ongeluk zijn wiskunde leraar laat exploderen. Hij komt er achter dat hij de zoon is van een Griekse god en dat Zeus, de heer van de hemel, denkt dat hij zijn bliksemschicht heeft gestolen. Welkom in de wereld van Griekse goden en halfgoden!
Geweldig hoe steeds vaker de Graphic novel zijn weg naar het ne "De afkomst is bepaald. Geweldig hoe steeds vaker de Graphic novel zijn weg naar het nederlandse boekenschap weet te vinden. Ik was ook echt blij verrast met deze uitgave van De Bliksemdief.
Al jaren staat het boek op mijn wensenlijst, maar het komt er gewoon niet van. Ik was dan ook heel dankbaar dat deze versie op mijn pad kwam! Absoluut een toffe tekenstijl, en het verhaal leent zich er ook echt toe om in stripvorm gebracht te worden.
Hoewel ik in het begin echt het gevoel had iets te snel door het verhaal te vliegen, heb ik wel echt genoten van het lezen. Jul 17, isabelle rated it liked it Shelves: Let me admit that although I have little to no experience in graphic novels, I am a minor art geek. I draw in my free time when I'm not in a mood to pick up a book.
I look at art like a predator looks at its prey. And as I looked upon the art in this graphic novel I almost instantly cringed. Our cast did not look like twelve year olds.
The Lightning Thief: The Graphic Novel
Their faces changed from time to time and I had to pause to figure if it was the same person. And don't even get me started on Annabeth's cl Let me admit that although I have little to no experience in graphic novels, I am a minor art geek. And don't even get me started on Annabeth's cleavage. It didn't maintain the same awesomeness as the real book.
Frowny faces. The storyline was the same with a few missing holes here and there. The book itself obviously has more details and you can't fit everything into a graphic novel. But what you can do is try to make the story flow smoothly and eloquently. More frowny faces.
Do I recommend? To put this lightly, it's sort of a waste of time. But what I would want to shove in your face is the actual novel. Apr 12, Armin Khodadadi rated it did not like it. Dec 17, Miss Book rated it it was ok Shelves: This was super quick read, but I really didn't like it. I knew going into this that it was different from the book, but I was just very disappointed. The characters were very different than I imagined them.
The art style was not the best. It was not that funny. And it generally took away the feel of the book, which I couldn't stand. If you're a fan of the series, you might be interested in reading this, but, personally, I didn't like it at all. Nov 06, Carolina rated it really liked it Shelves: I didn't particulary like the art work, they could have done something so much better, especially for the Underworld part.
Some parts had beautiful colors but the art itself didn't appeal that much to me. Really liked getting back to our first encounter with Percy though. I never asked to be the son of a Greek god. The art work is by Attila Futaki and Jose Villarrubia. The advertising blurb says, "Percy Jackson, half boy, half god, all hero. In fact though, it is rather a disappointing read "Look, I didn't want to be a half-blood.
In fact though, it is rather a disappointing read. The premise is that twelve-year-old Percy is the son of a mortal woman and Poseidon, god of the sea. He lives with his natural mother, and her partner, who is a classic layabout thug. The action starts in a museum, where an apparently paraplegic teacher is lecturing the class about the Greek gods.
Soon however, supernatural events start to happen, and Percy is sent to a summer camp for "halfbloods" or demigods like himself. There he is given a unique quest, which only he can perform, to retrieve Zeus's missing lightning bolt from Hades.
He chooses two friends, predictably one male and one spunky female, to prevent an imminent war between the gods, Zeus and Poseidon. Not having read the original novel, and having given up on the film, perhaps I was expecting too much from this graphic novel. It may be that if you are already an enthusiast for the series, this reminder may be an enjoyable read. But the illustrations were sketchily drawn, and the colouring not particularly original or interesting. So the story seemed too formulaic for my taste, and the illustrations, which I had hoped would carry it along, just didn't.
Even the print seemed rather small for this type of work, and difficult to read, sometimes being the reverse of the convention, such as white type on a green background. There are a lot of action sequences, many of which are very violent, but since the reader has not had the opportunity to engage with any of the supernatural creatures, there is no build-up and just as Greek figures and legends are name-dropped into the mix, it all seems rather haphazard and random.
Fights do not seem to be very exciting or suspenseful. At one point one of the three main characters actually says, "Deux ex machina anyone? But in the main, the "flip" element, where everything is played for laughs, or with a knowing air, leaves me cold. All the hallmarks of a typical teenage read are here.
Problems at school, in this case dyslexia, a home life which could be just perfect - if only There is one "good" parent, and one "bad". There are "monsters" whom only our hero can defeat. There is a baddie, who turns out to be trustworthy after all - and a "friend" who is revealed to be the exact opposite.
There is an unusual girl, clearly destined to be a possible romantic interest for our hero. It could have been so much better. And there may be much that has been missed out of Rick Riordan's novel, as it is possible to read this graphic novel in about an hour. So perhaps that would be a good read. There are some great stories in the Greek myths, and a new take on them is certainly an attractive idea.
Possibly the original novel is exciting and has more appeal. This, however, does not. Aug 30, Lola rated it it was ok Shelves: I literally read this graphic novel in 30 minutes. While Percy and cie were supposed to look like kids, they were drawn as if they were years old. Also, the world-building looked so cheap.
More color than actual buildings or stuff here and there. No atmosphere, no chemistry, it was flat. It does follow the story, or at least tries to. The most important lines are there but many things are missing still which I guess I can understand. Jul 23, Book Concierge rated it did not like it Shelves: I might have enjoyed this fantasy novel in the traditional book format. But the graphic novel is not to my liking at all. The print is tiny and all the color on the page makes it hard on my older eyes especially when they reverse print — white font on green background, for example.
I found myself disinterested in the dark images and just skipping ahead to read the dialogue. As a result, I feel that I missed a lot of the story. I can see where some children would be really attracted to this format, however I also think the images are very violent. Sep 10, JohnCheonE1 rated it it was amazing.

I like Percy Jackson and this was a great graphic novel. The illustrations weren't childish. Jul 23, Carol rated it did not like it. Ugh ugh ugh ugh ugh. Curly, you hear me?! She doesn't look a bit like what I imagined Annabeth to be.
The Lightning Thief: The Graphic Novel
Second, some of the scenes were twisted and not like the book. Come on! It wouldn't have been so bad if her hair was curly. Riordan specifically says her hair is freaking curly. If you've got to change the scenes, could you at least make her hair the way it's described in the book?
Graphic novel Annabeth doesn't seem very Annabeth-y at all. She just Ugh ugh ugh ugh ugh.It was a quick read and a really neat interpretation. Erin Hunter.
