Booklist - 12/15/2013 As readers of Riordan’s series know, a war between Titans and gods is stirring, and the goddess Artemis is crucial to preparations. But five days before the winter solstice, when she must participate in the summit of the gods, she goes missing. Several of her hunters set out to find her, and though they initially refuse Percy a place in the quest, they eventually join forces for a perilous journey that leads to a showdown with the Titan Atlas and more than one heartrending death. Venditti (The Surrogates) remolds the tale into sequential form, successfully interspersing exposition, action, and revelation at a breathless pace appropriate to the novel. Futaki envisions the beloved characters clearly, and Guilhaumond finds a palette that nicely evokes our hero’s accruing burdens. Although all of mythology’s classic mayhem-makers are present, from manticore to dragon-tooth soldiers to the titanic Talos, they are somewhat robbed of their terrible awesomeness by the scale of the page composition and panel size. Nevertheless, no fan will be able to turn this down. - Copyright 2013 Booklist.
