Book Description

A new prophecy leads to a dangerous quest. When Percy receives an urgent distress call from Grover, he immediately prepares for battle. He knows he'll need his powerful demigod allies, Annabeth and Thalia, at his side; his trusty bronze sword, Riptide; and…a ride from his mom. The demigods race to the rescue, only to find that Grover has made an important discovery: two new powerful half-bloods, whose parentage is unknown. But that's not all that awaits them. The Titan lord, Kronos, has set up his most devious trap yet, and the young heroes have just fallen prey. Now, Percy and his friends are faced with their most dangerous challenge—the chilling prophecy of the Titan's Curse. They must rescue the goddess Artemis by the Winter Solstice, or all will be lost…including Annabeth. Rick Riordan's internationally best-selling The Titan's Curse becomes a graphic novel in the hands of comic-book luminaries Robert Venditti, Attila Futaki, and Greg Guilhaumond.


Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

As readers of Riordan’s series know, a war between Titans and gods is stirring, and the goddess Artemis is crucial to preparations. But five days before the winter solstice, when she must participate in the summit of the gods, she goes missing. Several of her hunters set out to find her, and though they initially refuse Percy a place in the quest, they eventually join forces for a perilous journey that leads to a showdown with the Titan Atlas and more than one heartrending death. Venditti (The Surrogates) remolds the tale into sequential form, successfully interspersing exposition, action, and revelation at a breathless pace appropriate to the novel. Futaki envisions the beloved characters clearly, and Guilhaumond finds a palette that nicely evokes our hero’s accruing burdens. Although all of mythology’s classic mayhem-makers are present, from manticore to dragon-tooth soldiers to the titanic Talos, they are somewhat robbed of their terrible awesomeness by the scale of the page composition and panel size. Nevertheless, no fan will be able to turn this down. Grades 5-8. --Jesse Karp

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Book October 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was really beyond what I had in mind............ In a very good way. I think that if they make a movie of this they should just copy it from this.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm a little biased October 30, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have already read all of the Percy Jackson books that are out there. And I have seen the movies which were't that great, but I liked the idea of getting to see the characters I have in my head when I read, enter the graphic novel. So far this is great, the comic book panels and the story line that has really been great it's a perfect match. These books add a level to the books I've already read. I feel like it's new all over again. Definitely recommend this!

3.0 out of 5 stars Um...I Didn't Enjoy this One January 2, 2014
By Amira
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was very excited for this book, given The Sea of Monsters was one of the most beautiful graphic novels I'd ever read. And I usually don't even read graphic novels, but given I love the Percy Jackson series and the movies were such a disappointment, I decided to start reading them.
The first one was...okay. I enjoyed it, but the characters didn't have much detail, artwork wise. The second one (as stated before) was absolutely beautiful. I was so in love with it that I read it over and over. The characters were beautifully drawn, the details behind it were gorgeous, and I was starstruck. Even to myself, I was going, "Whoa, this is fantastic! I wish I could draw half as well as Robert Venditti!"
Then I pre-ordered The Titan's Curse and called it a day.
When I got the Titan's Curse, I finished everything else I had to do and quickly started reading. Ignoring the fact that it cut straight to where Percy met Nico and Bianca, I continued reading. My excitement slowly diminished.
The artwork wasn't as sharp as it could've been. The characters looked like they'd been outlined with marker. The background wasn't as detailed. The dialogue was altered slightly, but it was done enough times to aggravate me. Then again, I might be basing this off the fact that the Sea of Monsters was drawn so well and this wasn't as awesome as it could've been.
But then again, I really want Venditti to redeem himself and the next one. Hopefully it'll be better.

Really disappointed by this one. Followed the book OK but the artwork was all over the place and inconsistent. Just not good. I enjoyed the first two graphic novels but will be hesitant to get the next.

5.0 out of 5 stars this book is sooooooooooo awsome January 28, 2015
By Barbara
Format:Paperback
my favorite part of the book was. when Percy followd the hunters and got in some serious trouble.with some guys under ground. and a huge lion but they killed the lion. and then the guys from under ground chased them fore the rest of the book. something worth remembering is. at the very last page Grover heard pan in his head. and he said i await you. i think the Authers purpose of writing this book is . to keep the adventure of percy Jackson going. tink this book has a lesson. and that lesson is dont be afraid . it is percys point of view because he is the son of one of the big three gods. i would change the part when they killed the Nemean lion. i would have made it to where Grover talked to him . then the lion would give him a ride back to camp half blood.since black jack went back to get rest.i would discribe percy by saying. funny,nice,encouraging guy. he cares about other pepole . they care about him.a reader that would like this book is . someone who likes action .there is a ton of action.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Graphic Novel July 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really love the drawings and colors used for the backgrounds and the characters. The story was exciting leaving me wanting more.
I had only one problem with the graphic book style and that was the close up feature did not punch up the words enough and I had to use a magnifying glass to read it better.
I hope in the future I will either learn a better way to read a graphic novel on Kindle or I find a better magnifying glass!

Same problem as other title in this series of graphic novels. They take major liberties with the storyline. They don't quite ruin it, but some of the new bright ideas come close... I would strongly urge having the kid or adult read the regular edition first. Then this one can be just another flavor. I am not sure how many of the changes were approved by Riordan, or forced upon him.
