Other things they cut that really should have stayed in include: Literally everything with Calypso (geez, wonder if that’s important for the Heroes of Olympus?), Rachel hitting Kronos with a brush, Percy saving one of Mr. D‘s sons, the romance between Clarisse and Chris (sure, cut her most human moments out), JUNIPER (!), Grover‘s moment of badassery and probably more that I don’t remember because I AM YELLING ABOUT THE KISS! Here’s the thing, I get that you have to make cuts by adapting a book into a Graphic Novel, but the decisions about what to cut her puzzle me to no end. It just doesn’t make sense to me, because if I hadn’t known the story at this point and my introduction would be this Graphic Novel, I‘d be lost. They chopped one of the best books Rick Riordan has ever written down to a shell and I know they can do better and that makes it frustrating. Compare that to the graphic novel adaptation of The Lost Hero which almost includes the entire story (and I think the book is longer). The artwork is also not that compelling this time around. It’s very messy and some of the characters look downright unpleasant, especially poor Annabeth. Also, Nico looks way too old. Get a grip, he is like 10 here. So, why still 3 stars? Because it’s still The Battle of the Labyrinth, one of my favorite Percy Jackson stories and at least it includes some of Percy‘s most badass moments. Plus, the scene with Pan always gets me. And the Grover/Tyson cuteness. Despite my... minor outburst of... yelling, I did not dislike the graphic novel. I don’t think I have it in me to dislike anything Percy Jackson related. I‘m just frustrated. Very, very frustrated.

    This GN was MUCH better than The Sea of Monsters! Besides a few spots, I felt the story had a much nicer flow. Although, it did skip over some major moments! Moments like Percy and Annabeth’s first kiss! And the whole bit of Percy choosing to be a hero and leaving Calypso’s island. I was a little shocked at the very different art style (compared to the last one) but I quickly started to really enjoy the illustrations. The characters were easily distinguishable and the backgrounds were always so This GN was MUCH better than The Sea of Monsters! Besides a few spots, I felt the story had a much nicer flow.

    I've read the books so long ago and I don't remember them being this hectic. I don't think the graphic novel format suits them. I still enjoyed the story and characters.

    I liked this novel better than all the other PJO related graphic novels thus far. This is largely because the artstyle just appealed more to me in this one. Once again I missed a few part, Calypso was barely in it and I MISSED THE KISS.

    Definitely the best one by far with an interesting art style and a fully cohesive storyline! I’m incredibly happy that it was done so well too because this was always my favorite book in the series.

    actual rating: 2.5 On the one hand, this is a quick enjoyable read and I definitely like the art here more than in previous volumes. On the other hand, I felt like literally nothing happened? It's been probably a decade since I've read the books so I'm not sure if this book in particular was just really slow or if they cut out a bunch of stuff and that's what made it seem that way here. It's still a nice refresher since I'm trying to wait until after the last Apollo book comes out before I reread actual rating: 2.5 On the one hand, this is a quick enjoyable read and I definitely like the art here more than in previous volumes.

It's still a nice refresher since I'm trying to wait until after the last Apollo book comes out before I reread the entire Greek Gods portion of Riordan's work, but it definitely feels like it's missing something.

    3.5 stars. I enjoy having a visual to go with the great books by Rick Riordan! And I know that there are a lot of reasons for pieces to get cut out in the transition to a graphic novel. But this one felt particularly choppy and disconnected. Kids who haven't read the novels might be fine with this as their only experience of the story. And kids who really get into the visuals of the monsters and other characters they already enjoy from the books might be fine with this, too. Kids who love the no 3.5 stars.

    *3.5 stars. This graphic novel was too short, it almost lost the originality of the story, it cut off a lot of good parts of the book and made the whole experience a bit disconnected. I was quite disappointed because the Battle of the Labyrinth is my favorite book in the series and wasn't well represented on this. *3.5 stars.

    I understand things have to be cut to be short enough for a graphic novel, but this one took out a just a bit too much.

    I liked this adaption of the Battle of the Labyrinth! The illustrations are different than the previous books and I like this one better because each character looks unique. With the Titan's Curse, I had a hard time distinguishing between certain characters. The pace was kind of fast but they included most events that happened. I just wish they didn't cut out some stuff like the interaction between Percy & Calypso and when Rachel hit Kronos in the eye with a hairbrush! I liked this adaption of the Battle of the Labyrinth!

    [the longest yeaaaaah boiiii] Definitely the best out of the series so far, but I also might be biased because it's one of my favourites out of the series overall. The new art helps so much to make things feel more vivid, and the story hits all the best points. By far the one I'm gonna end up going back to out of these most often.

    Did the artwork improve in this book? It's still not how I picture them all, but I do love being back in the world of Percy Jackson. Did the artwork improve in this book? It's still not how I picture them all, but I do love being back in the world of Percy Jackson.

    A five-year gap from the last book? And a change of artist to boot. I can't say I like the new art better, though. A five-year gap from the last book? And a change of artist to boot. I can't say I like the new art better, though.

Robert Venditti Bring 4th installment into the Comic Screen for Percy Jackson’s Dangerous Quest. I was really surprise that This is absolutely refresh of unique Illustrations quite Match very much alike in the Source Material for Fans. As for me as for Fan, This is Wonderful, Well not Perfect, But Wonderful. I love It! My Opinion of This was Great. - Original Story Adaptation, Much Like Previous, was Same as quality. But the problem was Pages is too short including few storylines and some important moments were skipped including Percy’s school orientation, few supporting characters focus scenes, Council Meeting, Percy Meet his father in his birthday party and of Course, Annabeth kiss Percy (😡😢🥺). It was quite too much rush from one place to another that should’ve been more pages of 192 (Like Both Kane Chronicles GN And Heroes of Olympus GN) or. Ore that made whole experience. -Attila Futaki Been replaced by Orpheus Collar, who adapted, draw, and colored the Kane Chronicles GN Trilogy as well as colored The Heroes of Olympus GN, and Antoine Dode, Who Illustrated The Heroes of Olympus GN. Collar and Dode did worked together once with Venditti adapted the 2nd Installment of The Heroes of Olympus, The Son of Neptune. Now, they combine the great formula of their Both Illustrated And Colored are very outstanding what we picture in the Original Novel. Although, background can get a little bit messy, yet beautiful and great detail. Action, Violence, Intense, Emotion, And Humor Are all glorious with the different art style. -Different Artstyle Are better than previous that characters are well fan serve, well almost for fan’s criticism. Collar and Dode got right appearances including Percy (Black Jet Hair Son of Poseidon with Green Eyes, Right Height, And his Riptide Sword), Annabeth ((Curly Blonde Ponytail Hair Daughter of Athena with Grey Eyes, Roght Clothing, And Yanke Hat), Grover (Brown Curly Hair Nervous Goat Boy), Tyson (Tall And Gentle Cyclop Boy), Nico (Black Hair Son of Hades with dark brown hair and grim look with jacket and skull shirt), Rachel (redheaded Tall And slim girl who can see things) amd Many more. Some Characters are here and looks pretty well and some (Calypso And Clarisse) Are barely here or not. They’re really fit in dialogue and plot. -I look layout of this was quite good, but it’s too short that not quite enough. I really felt like this was original edition of GN, but I really wish that Extended Edition of Blockbuster GN Extinct should've be more measurable like the Lord of the Ring films. -The Cover is the best fan service Illustration by Collar and Dode are both quite Perfect. Show Percy, Annabeth, amd. Nico run in Forward towards Labyrinth covered in Greek Fire, And Behind Are Rachel wearing mechanical wings and Creator of Maze in his Workshop. This is Bright And Attractive. I was little worried that won’t be made and released after First-Second Heroes of Olympus Graphic Novel released but thankfully Venditti finally came back where he continue to adapt wrote the fourth time of Son of Poseidon’s Adventure in Camp Half-Blood. With Criticism for this and the series, but I quite enjoy it. This is the best of the series with Illustrated and Colored since The Sea of Monsters Graphic Novel. I love it, I cannot wait for fifth and final installment of Graphic Novel.

BUYING ADVISORY: MS – ESSENTIAL AUDIENCE APPEAL: HIGH Annabeth has been granted a quest to go into the Labyrinth and try to close the entrance that would put Camp Half Blood in peril. As Percy and Annabeth head on their quest they realize that the labyrinth is more complex and confusing than they thought so they have to get a human (Rachel) who has the sight. Together the friends fight against monsters and old friends. I love the Percy Jackson series, so it was fun to revisit the story though the illustrations of this graphic novel. The pictures are bright and attractive and the story line is captured through the text. The violence is battle violence with blood and gore, including a man getting his head decapitated which makes it hard to recommend to elementary level readers, even though the books are great for that age.

    It took me a little longer to get into this graphic novel than the first three in the series. I don’t know if it’s maybe because I just didn’t originally like this storyline as much (it mostly just sets up the final battle), or if I picked it up at an inconvenient time. But, regardless, it took me a fair bit longer to read than a graphic novel usually would. Although, once I got past the first part / chapter, I didn’t stop.

There was a lot of information in the original novel, and a lot that was missed out in the graphic novel. But Venditti and Riordan managed to work this perfectly. I didn’t feel like important aspects were skipped out on, but rather, wondered why I enjoyed them so much in the novel. There was a great flow and pace to the storyline as you sink into the depths of the labyrinth and hope for the best with Percy and all his friends. One of the parts of this graphic novel that stuck with me was the panels which showed Annabeth, Percy, Grover and Tyson walking through the labyrinth. Each panel has a different background to the characters and I thought that this showed the tricky, everchanging nature of the labyrinth perfectly.

    3 stars. Clear art improvement from three, I enjoy the style a lot. The main problem with this book is that's it is way too short and tries to cover a three hundred sixty-something page novel in around one hundred pages of a graphic novels. A lot of things are rushed through, the best example being Calypso's island, which in the novel is a whole chapter, is only sixteen panels, Calypso herself only appearing in four. Calypso is somewhat important as a character too, as she is used as an example 3 stars. Clear art improvement from three, I enjoy the style a lot.

Calypso is somewhat important as a character too, as she is used as an example of how the gods treat everyone, and has a more important role in later books. It's kinda funny how Percy just gets up and literally runs off the island into the boat without a second thought though. Graphic novels are great alternatives for fans of the books who read better with visuals, especially considering the fact that many readers are neurodivergent like the characters. If this book were longer, I feel it could be a more faithful adaptation and a better alternative to readers who do need visuals. It's still good, it could really just use some improvements.

    This book still kinda falls to the same crimes as the previous graphic novels, of leaving out various details (like that fight in Mount St. Helens when I'm pretty sure Annabeth kissed Percy, or Percy's interactions with Calypso as a whole) and to be honest I'm wondering if my expectations are too high. As an aside, I think Nico's hair is hilariously edgelordy and I'm l i v i n g for it.

I don't know how well you'd actually be able to see, because sometimes you can see through your hair decently well, but if it looks nearly as thick as his hair does, he ain't seeing anything on one side. (To be fair it is kinda hard to depict thinner hair without it just looking weird.) The art style is a fantastic upgrade from the previous three books. I can attest that none of the characters look like burly middle-aged men, which is all one can hope for some days. They look cartoony, but I'm extremely okay with that.
