The Titan’s Curse: Graphic Novel Review

Synopsis:

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51cIepDxASL._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_.jpgA 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 Gregory Guilhaumond.

Review:

The Titan’s Curse graphic novel, is the best mixture between The Lightning Thief and Sea of Monsters graphic novels. Once again, this story felt a bit rushed at parts. The Sea of Monsters felt thought out, but The Titan’s Curse felt a bit thrown together to me. Most of the major events from the story made it in, but they flew by quickly.

I found myself not liking the artwork in The Titan’s Curse as much as I did in the last two installments in the series. It looked a bit rushed compared to the art in The Lightning Thief and Sea of Monsters. The whole novel was a step back in quality from Sea of Monsters.

I am giving The Titan’s Curse: The Graphic Novel 3/5 stars.
