School Library Journal - 11/01/2013 Gr 4–8—In this adaptation of Riordan's novel (Hyperion, 2006), Camp Half-Blood's borders have been poisoned, and Percy is off on a quest to find the healing Golden Fleece. The detailed, realistic art in full, rich color will appeal to fans of superhero comics: it is perfectly suited to the story's many action and fight scenes, none of which depict graphic violence. Fans of George O'Connor's "Olympians" series (First Second) may enjoy this similarly irreverent, action-packed view of Greek mythology. The text is succinct and witty, and there are many wordless scenes, including a few stunning pages in which Percy's friend Annabeth encounters the Sirens. Both high in quality and sure to be popular, this is a first purchase.—Lisa Goldstein, Brooklyn Public Library, NY - Copyright 2013 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
