The Lost Hero: The Graphic Novel

Reviewed by:

Reluctant readers who yearn for an action-packed adventure now have the option to follow a popular Greek mythology series in this well-executed graphic novel adaptation of Rick Riordan’s Book 1 in the “Heroes of Olympus”. Robert Venditti’s clever adaptation keeps a majority of the conversations and lets the spectacular artwork by Nate Powell speak for the detailed descriptions of the original story. Jason, Piper, and Leo, three students from a school for ‘bad kids’, find themselves at Camp Half-Blood, where they learn that they are demi-gods and begin the quest to free Hera, who has been imprisoned by Mother Earth herself. ┬áNew readers will find this an entertaining┬áintroduction to the series, as will the original fans who can enjoy the recap.
