Nice Art: Attila Futaki

page 20.jpg
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.


  1. The Percy Jackson adaptation also is written by Robert Venditti, speaking of “a lot nicer than it has to be.”

  2. I’m really digging the grey washes, just as they are without colour. It’s nice to see that much style and artistry in what could have been just another quickie adaptation.

  3. Brian Spence says:

    Wow, the first thing I thought was that it was Charles Vess. That’s a high compliment.
