Jason has a problem. He doesn't remember anything before waking up on a school bus holding hands with a girl. Apparently she's his girlfriend Piper, his best friend is a kid named Leo, and they're all students in the Wilderness School, a boarding school for "bad kids." What he did to end up here, Jason has no idea--except that everything seems very wrong. Piper has a secret Jason has a problem.

    This was an very good adaptation and a very good graphic novel. I didn't know what to expect because I was so disappointed with the Lightening Thief graphic novel, and the second book was better but not great. But this was a great story and a lot of fun.

And it's really substantive, it's a thick book that takes a while to read, there's a lot of story there. I'm sure purists would quibble about what was left out, but it felt like a very good adaptation that hit the high notes of the book, from what I remember. And it felt like people who haven't read the book would be able to make sense of it, which was not a feeling that I got at all from the first two Lightening Thief graphic novels. The art was serviceable, not great but it got the job done. It's a shame he can't draw pretty woman though. Annabeth was just unattractive, the goddess of love and beauty herself looked like a middle-aged soccer mom, and poor Piper was often quite odd looking, even when she had her mother's (unwanted) blessing. There were a lot of unattractive or bland faces, really. By unattractive I mean weirdly scrunched or shaded or or shaped in ways that seemed inconsistent with the character, not a judgement about their prettiness. But despite being occasionally distracting, overall the art was fine. It was a very enjoyable book that I would recommend for fans and for newbies alike.

    Ugh, I did not like this book at all. First of all, the art is about as far from my style as it's possible to get. None of the characters look right, but I guess that's just a matter of opinion. Second, almost all the humor from Rick Riordan is cut out. I understand it's hard to include everything in a graphic novel, but still, it wouldn't be that hard to add some of the jokes and light-hearted banter so the story doesn't just drag on and on. And drag on and on it did. If you liked The Lost Hero Ugh, I did not like this book at all. First of all, the art is about as far from my style as it's possible to get.

They kept majority of the conversations and let the art speak for the detailed descriptions. One of the pages in the graphic novel is when Annabeth is flying Jason, Leo, and Piper back to Camp Half-Blood and you get a wonderful layout of the camp from above. There is no need to go on for a few pages describing the camp when you can see the lay out so clearly. Any of the half or full page spreads were my favorite because the art was able to show the reader so much detail. It is nice to be able to read the book and imagine the scenes yourself, but it is also really nice to soak in all the detail that a picture can give to the reader and add to the understanding of the scene. Graphic novels are fast passed and you can get through the story quick! The drawings are well done and you are able to see the characters and understand them very well. This graphic novel compares well to the book that it is based off of, and allows the reader of the graphic novel to understand everything that the reader of the book knows about. So if you really enjoy graphic novels and want to learn more about the Percy Jackson Series then pick up this book!

    Perfect for fans of Percy Jackson. The artist captured everything perfectly and I wish the other books were made into graphic novels so I could binge all of them. This is one of the first graphic novels I have read and it was so perfect I want to read more graphic novels. So much quicker than reading the books, but gave you a similar experience. Totally going to get my hands on The Lightning Theif to see Percy. The art was stunning and the storyline was 100% accurate, so 100 recommend from me.

    This book is about a boy named Jason. Jason wakes up on a bus not knowing anything, not even his girlfriend or best friend, but worse, he doesn't remember who he is. He and his girlfriend, Piper, and his best friend Leo soon find out that they are demigods, or a half blood. This means that one of their parents is a greek god or goddess.

Soon they find out that Piper's mom is Aphrodite the goddess of love and beauty, Leo's dad is Hephaestus the god of blacksmiths, and Jason's dad is Zeus king of the gods. Soon they realize that Hera, Zeus's goddess wife, has been captured, and the three of them have been chosen by Hera herself to find and free her. They go through many obstacles, like when they met Medea, a evil woman who is immortal and have to escape two dragons and defeat Medea herself. They also catch some storm spirits, and bring them to the weather man who tells the gods what the weather will be like. Finally when they find Hera, it is almost too late, a giant born from Gaea, who was born to destroy Zeus is waking and they must rescue Hera before it is all over. Finally Piper and Leo release a Hera from her cage while Jason is keeping the giant busy, and through a burst of rage, Hera destroys the giant and buys them some time, for a monster of that sort can only be killed by a god or goddess and a half blood. The three still know that they will be up for a fight, but right now they need to find Percy Jackson, who has been sent to the Roman god camp, where Jason is supposed to be, and does not know who he is either, just like Jason. This book was really good to read and I really liked it. I think it relates to a Land of Stories book which is called The Grimm warning.

    The graphic novel of the lost hero was awesome and very interactive.I felt as if I were there with the characters because of the pictures.Once I started reading this book I did not want to let go of it.I recommend this book to people who like fiction books and comic like structured books.If you also like greek mythology books you should definitely read this book.As you can see The Lost Hero book 1 is a great and well written book.

    This was boring and choppy. The scenes didn't flow. If I hadn't read the actual book I would have had no idea what was going on. Two stars for the nice art. This was boring and choppy.

    I bought this one purely because I am a Percy Jackson fan. While I love, LOVE the original series, this rendition didn't do much justice to Rick Riordan's flawless writing.

    Story Plot- A Illustration- A+/- Color- A Layout- A+ Lettering- A- Grade- A- This was Very Good Graphic Novel Adaptation of the 1st Installments of The Heroes of Olympus, Return from Robert Vendittit (Percy Jackson GN Series) And Orpheus Collar (The Kane Chronicles GN Series) with the New Artist Nate Powell to Set the Same Story From The Source Material. It was Not Great, But Really Good on the Comic-Style Screen And Amazing Refreshing Color. This was Better Than the Lightning Thief with the Lack of A Story Plot- A Illustration- A+/- Color- A Layout- A+ Lettering- A- Grade- A- This was Very Good Graphic Novel Adaptation of the 1st Installments of The Heroes of Olympus, Return from Robert Vendittit (Percy Jackson GN Series) And Orpheus Collar (The Kane Chronicles GN Series) with the New Artist Nate Powell to Set the Same Story From The Source Material. It was Not Great, But Really Good on the Comic-Style Screen And Amazing Refreshing Color. This was Better Than the Lightning Thief with the Lack of Art and Color, But the Next Installment was Better. The 190 pages are Very much To Be Seen From Pages To the Illustration Screen. This release same day when The Blood of Olympus Novel, And After the First-Third Percy Jackson Graphic Novel Releases And First-Second Kane Chronicles Graphic Novel Releases. Much like Skipping To Complete the Series And Start the New Series From The Novels by the Same Author, But Later KC GN Complete by Collar And Couples Years Later, PJ GN Finally Complete by Venditti. My Opinion of This was Good. -The Story is Adventure about 3 New Demigods Chosen by Hera And According To Prophecy of Seven, to rescue the Queen of the Olympian in 4 Days of Winter Solstice Before the Earth Mother awaken, must Face the mysterious odd during the Impossible Quest. It did follow the source material, but suddenly might been a little skip or rush on almost every moment scenes that I read the book. Some Scene Moments were Absent including Horse-Shaped Venti Tempest, Clovis, Flying Chariot is on Fire, Doesn’t Show Bunker 9 until the End, And King Midas And Lityerses in Nebraska. You know, that seem Miss the Mark or Error on every Scenes, But the Story are 90% Match and Good to Follow by Comic Book Writer Venditti. -Illustration are Sketchy Good by Drawer Nate Powell. What I Look at the Pages had a More Detail Than 1st-3rd Percy Jackson GN with the Spectacular Color by Orpheus Collar. However, the Background on the Setting including Nature are Blurry or Unfinished, Just almost Empty. This Version of the Novel is Much Like the Cartoonish with the Visual Color And Emotion is Absolutely Well Done of the 1st Installment of the Second Series that Much Better Than The Lightning Thief’s Art And Color by Attila Futaki And Jose Villarrubia, Which is Very Lacking and Disgraceful. The Combination of Powell And Collar May Not Get To Be Better, But It was Very Grateful Good That Are Spectacular Work of Art for Humor, Heart, And Action on This. -Characters Appears on Powell/Collar’s Version Artwork From Riordan’s Original. To Be Honest, This is Not what Pictured What Character’s Looks And They Much Alike, But they are Pretty Good To Me. Jason is Blonde and Caucasian, Leo is Mexican-American, And Piper is Cherokee. And There is Annabeth (Long Blond Hair instead a Ponytail), Chiron (White Stallion, Not Brown), Rachel (Pretty Good), Coach Hedge (Not Bad), Thalia (Her Skin is Light, Not Dark) And Others. -The Layout is really Good Feels Like a Movie Screen Styles focus on Action Sequences, Mystery Clues, Coming of Ages Elements, And Traveling Journey. Novel had 553 pages and GN had 192 pages. This Length And Scale Are Better Than the PJ Graphic Novel Series. They put the Same Story as they Can on Writing on Screen And Artwork as Well to follow the Source Material But To Cut Few Scenes. You Know, Not Triggering And Whole But Fun-Rides. -The Cover of Jason carry a Spear, Leo had a Hammer on his hand, and Piper hold a Dagger with Festus Breathes Fire. It was Spectacular To introduces a New Hero with Different Problems That Exactly Like the John Rocco’s Art Book Cover. Well Done! Although I Criticizes Festus Body Shape particularly His Head Are Small instead a Mild Large. I praised the Adapt Story, Illustration, Color, And Much Better Than Previous GN Series, Layout, But Criticism of Background Art, Some Scenes Absent, And Look Sketchy. Well In My Opinion, It was Good Comic Art Style Adaptation of Greek-Roman Mix Modern Time Children’s Adventure of 3 Protagonists.

    The art was decent for this one and the story was also engaging; I also like the new characters and the introduction of the Roman counterparts of the Greek gods and heroes. However, these graphic novels do come off as a little too wordy and sometimes the transitions just aren't that smooth. I honestly thought I had skipped a page or two because it appeared parts of the story had just jumped into a completely different scene or scenario with little to no explanation.

    • Characters appear older than they are • Can't exactly understand what's going on if you just read the graphic version, but a good recap for those who have read the novels • More detailed than the PJO versions, so there's that? • Characters appear older than they are • Can't exactly understand what's going on if you just read the graphic version, but a good recap for those who have read the novels • More detailed than the PJO versions, so there's that?
