Quick Review: graphic novel Lightning Thief


My Thoughts: A nice retelling of the Lightning Thief - a great way to quickly refamiliarize yourself the story.

Art: I wasn't crazy about the art with the exceptions of the special effects. I think it's a personal choice. The characters aren't how I imagined - and it's hard for me to adjust. I think it's a great read for anyone interested in this series.

It would certainly challenge an artist to depict characters in a popular book because we do conjure up our own images of them. I don't read graphic novels as a rule but this one sounds interesting because it is based on the popular series.

I agree. Though I liked this book, it wasn't quite what I'd hoped for in all the illustrations.
