Percy Jackson - now in stunning graphic novel e-book form! Look, I didn't want to be a half-blood. I never asked to be the son of a Greek God. I was just a normal kid, going to school, playing basketball, skateboarding. The usual. Until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher. That's when things started really going wrong. Now I spend my time fighting with swords, battling monsters with my friends, and generally trying to stay alive. This is the one where Zeus, God of the Sky, thinks I've stolen his lightning bolt - and making Zeus angry is a very bad idea. Can Percy find the lightning bolt before a fully-fledged war of the Gods erupts? Rick Riordan has now sold an incredible 55 million copies of his books worldwide

A new prophecy leads to a dangerous quest. When Percy receives an urgent distress call from Grover, he immediately prepares for battle. He knows he'll need his powerful demigod allies, Annabeth and Thalia, at his side; his trusty bronze sword, Riptide; and a ride from his mom. The demigods race to the rescue, only to find that Grover has made an important discovery: two new powerful half-bloods, whose parentage is unknown. But that's not all that awaits them. The Titan lord, Kronos, has set up his most devious trap yet, and the young heroes have just fallen prey. Now, Percy and his friends are faced with their most dangerous challenge-the chilling prophecy of the Titan's Curse. They must rescue the goddess Artemis by the Winter Solstice, or all will be lost including Annabeth. Rick Riordan's internationally best-selling The Titan's Curse becomes a graphic novel in the hands of comic-book luminaries Robert Venditti, Attila Futaki, and Greg Guilhaumond.

Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school . . . again. And that's the least of his troubles.

Zeus's master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect. Now Percy and his friends have just ten days to find and return Zeus's stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus.

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! Named one of the year's best graphic novels by CNN, Complex, IFC, School Library Journal, Library Journal, and USA Today! "A great, paranoid read for the modern age."-- Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing "Venditti's cat-mouse thriller demands edge-of-your-seat attention while raising serious questions about terrorism, personal privacy, and government responsibility ... excellent writing and plotting, and dead suitable art."-- Library Journal "In exploring the nature of the relation between the individual, society and the state, one would anticipate The Homeland Directive to elevate both the thriller genre and the comics medium. Venditti delivers admirably on both counts."-- Dr. shathley Q, PopMatters "An addictive page-turner that feels like an edge-of-your-seat theater experience. Huddleston's art puts the focus where it needs to be to wring every drop of tension from the story, and Venditti's script shows that he doesn't need the sci-fi elements of his earlier work to craft a fascinating, fast-paced thriller."-- Rick Marshall, MTV Splash Page "The conspiracy at the heart of this superbly paced thriller makes the Illuminati and the New World Order look like rank amateurs."-- Garrett Martin, Paste Magazine "An exceptionally good graphic novel for the moment... with a sophisticated sense of how government works."-- Alyssa Rosenberg, ThinkProgress "It's unlikely you'll find a book that looks as good as The Homeland Directive this year."-- Graeme McMillan, Robot 6 "Pulse-pounding... well-characterized, the plotting is tight, and the stakes are high. Mike Huddleston's art flips from pen and ink to painterly, but consistently captures the right mood and inspires the gritting of teeth."-- Jeremy Nisen, Under the Radar A new thriller from the author of the New York Times bestseller The Surrogates! As a leading researcher at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Laura Regan is one of the world's foremost authorities on viral and bacteriological study. Having dedicated her career to halting the spread of infectious disease, she has always considered herself one of the good guys. But when her research partner is murdered and Laura is blamed for the crime, she finds herself at the heart of a vast and deadly conspiracy. Aided by three rogue federal agents who believe the government is behind the frame-up, Laura must evade law enforcement, mercenaries, and a team of cyber-detectives who know more about her life than she does-- all while trying to expose a sinister plot that will impact the lives of every American. Set in the Orwellian present, The Homeland Directive confronts one of the vital questions of our time: In an era when technology can either doom or save us, is it possible for personal privacy and national security to coexist?

Jason has a problem. He doesn't remember anything before waking up on a school bus holding hands with a girl. Apparently she's his girlfriend Piper, his best friend is a kid named Leo, and they're all students in the Wilderness School, a boarding school for "bad kids." What he did to end up here, Jason has no idea--except that everything seems very wrong. Piper has a secret. Her father has been missing for three days, and her vivid nightmares reveal that he's in terrible danger. Now her boyfriend doesn't recognize her, and when a freak storm and strange creatures attack during a school field trip, she, Jason, and Leo are whisked away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood. What is going on? Leo has a way with tools. His new cabin at Camp Half-Blood is filled with them. Seriously, the place beats Wilderness School hands down, with its weapons training, monsters, and fine-looking girls. What's troubling is the curse everyone keeps talking about, and that a camper's gone missing. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist they are all--including Leo--related to a god.
