The dialogue, just like the pictures, was taken directly from the novels as well, often word for word.
Although they obviously needed to condense things a bit, it follows the same storyline, and all of the key events are present.
This is a must-have for any fans of the books. Even if you're not one for graphic novels, I guarantee this may change your perspective a bit. As for those who haven't read the novels, this is a good way to jump into the world of Percy Jackson all the same.

Things are going relatively well for Percy at school (for once). Then Annabeth brings news that the tree that guards Camp Half Blood has been poisoned. Percy and friends must journey across the Sea of Monsters to find the cure.
This is the book where Tyson joins the story and I have always enjoyed his character. Those who have read the full length novel version of this story already know what’s going on here….so I am not going to discuss that a ton.
Needless to say this adventure involves many of our favorite Percy Jackson characters including Percy, Annabeth, Grover, and Clarisse.
The illustration throughout this graphic novel is in beautiful full color, illustrated with great detail, and just beautiful. The adaptation of the story is well done and hits all the high points of the story very nicely. It was fun to revisit this series in graphic novel format and I really enjoyed reading this.
Overall an absolutely excellent graphic novel adaptation of The Sea of Monsters. I really enjoyed both the story and the beautiful illustration. Highly recommend to those who love fantasy graphic novels. Of course I would recommend reading the full length novel first (since all of those books are pretty darn good) and then reading this as a way to revisit the story.
But, if your gonna get this read the book also, the book explains the characters emotion on situations that the comic really doesn't bring out. Some of the chapters seem to be chopped up and take out some little things but, not anything really damaging to the story. Every important details is shown, only thing it doesn't do for me is express the emotion in the characters, like you get from reading the book, that I like to read, which is to be expected.
This is must buy! A million times better than the movie, but the novel is the best way to enjoy these stories. Still a must buy for Percy Jackson fans who enjoy the story and wanna get a visual of the story.
Sorry guys would not recommend the Graphic novels they were sub par.
