The Lost Hero

lost heroThe Lost Hero
The Heroes of Olympus Book 1
Graphic Novel
Adapted by Robert Venditti
Disney*Hyperion, an imprint of Disney Book group, 2014
This is the second series of Percy Jackson books, even though Percy isn’t in it, although he is mentioned a lot. Basically it’s a story of demigods (offspring of the gods [Greek, Roman, Norse, etc. – in this case, Greek] and humans) versus monsters in a fight for the safety of all humankind. I won’t go into detail because when Toby already read and reviewed the book HERE.
This review is about the graphic novel version of the story. I don’t often read graphic novels – mainly because my imagination is strong enough that I don’t need to – if the author’s description of events is good enough, I am absorbed into the movie inside my head. Another reason I don’t read them is the illustrator’s vision of the characters is totally different than mine and I always like mine better! And, one more reason is I don’t feel emotionally connected to the characters by seeing what they do; I connect with them when reading what they do.
But some readers love graphic novels and for a non-graphic novel fan, this one is pretty good. The original storyline was followed completely; the illustrations are angular and hard-edged but very colorful.

      I only read a graphic novel once a year – for the Summer Reading Challenge!

    My husband loves graphic novels, but he is an artist, so he likes them more for the art. Although he of course appreciates a good story, too!
