Cool Comics for Kids: If You Like Percy Jackson...

If you like graphic novels AND Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series, I think you will like this week's recommendations. Did you know we have a graphic novel version of the Lightning Thief in our collection? Check it out sometime!

And...we also have an awesome collection of Greek myths retold in graphic novels. These exciting stories are some of the oldest tales of heroes, monsters, wars, and magic.

The Trojan War chronicles the epic battle featuring the warrior Achilles and the legendary Trojan horse.

In The Voyages of Odysseus , Odysseus and his crew fight turbulent seas,  a monstrous cyclops, and a dangerous sorceress as they struggle to return home from the Trojan War.

Join Jason and the Argonauts as they battle all kinds of strange and terrible monsters in an attempt to find a rare and valuable treasure known as the golden fleece.

In Theseus and the Minotaur , the Greek hero Theseus must travel deep into a stone maze to fight a creature that is half man and half bull.

To atone for past sins, Hercules, half man and half god, must complete a series of near impossible tasks, including killing a six headed dragon, and capturing the Cerberus, a vicious three-headed dog that guards the entrance to the land of the dead.   Discover all of the terrible, near impossible tasks when you read The 12 Labors of Hercules !

In an attempt to rescue the beautiful Andromeda from a violent death, the young hero and champion athlete Perseus battles King Atlas the giant,  Medusa the Gorgon (her head is adorned with a nest snakes and her gaze turns her enemies to stone!) and a giant reptilian sea monster set forth by the god Poseidon. The Adventures of Perseus is perhaps the most popular and exciting Greek myth ever told!
