Product Description

You've read the book. Series creator Rick Riordan joins forces with some of the greatest names in the comic book industry to tell the story of a boy who must unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves. Zeus's master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy will probably be the prime suspect. You've seen the movie. Now, he and his close friends have just ten days to find and return Zeus's stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. Now submerge yourself in the thrilling, stunning, and action-packed graphic novel. And worse, he's angered a handful of of them. Mythological monsters and also the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking out inside the pages of twelve-year-old Percy Jackson's textbooks and into his life.

After getting expelled from but another school for yet another clash with mythological monsters only he can see, twelve-year-old Percy Jackson is taken to Camp Half-Blood, where he finally learns the truth about his exclusive abilities: He can be a demigod, half human, half immortal. There's little time to process this news. All too soon, a cryptic prophecy from the Oracle sends Percy on his 1st quest, a mission to the Underworld to steer clear of a war amongst the gods of Olympus. Even more stunning: His father could be the Greek god Poseidon, ruler of the sea, making Percy on the list of most powerful demigods alive.

Dear Readers,When I was about eight years old I had the great luck of stumbling upon my father's collection of Classics Illustrated comic books. That promise let me know that if I read the words surrounding that picture, I could unlock the adventure. That promise is what I tried to achieve when creating the images for this incredible series. Yours, John It has been my own great adventure to help bring this book to life inside a new way, in color, on the page. I hope you enjoy this Deluxe Edition of The Lightning Thief. It was my chance to illustrate what I consider to turn into a new classic. My approach has never been just to describe a scene from the book, but to make an illustration that delivers tension and mystery--an image that provides just enough information to leave the viewer wanting to understand far more. The Lightning Thief has very a few wonderful moments it was tough to choose what to paint, but I knew I wanted to develop a balance of dramatic scenes and quiet moments and to capture the spirit of Rick's unforgettable characters. What I love about their paintings is not just the beautiful draftsmanship, color and composition, but their capability to capture a moment that held the promise of swashbuckling adventure. I instantly fell in love with the stories of Robert Louis Stevenson, Mark Twain, H. G. Wells, and James Fenimore Cooper. Many years later, when I became considering illustration, I discovered the beautiful hardbound editions of these stories featuring the arresting artwork of incredible artists like N. C. Wyeth, Howard Pyle, and Maxfield Parrish. When I was asked to make images for the Deluxe Edition of Rick Riordan's The Lightning Thief it was a dream come true.
