Somehow or other we just stumbled across this blog by Hungarian cartoonist Attila Futaki, whose comics adaptation of the immensely popular Percy Jackson & the Olympians, Book One: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan just came out. There are quite a few of these YA novel to graphic novel conversions going on, but Futaki’s art is a lot nicer than it has to be. The final version is colored by José Villarrubia and looks even better.
