To make matters worse, Annabeth, his friend from Camp Half-Blood, brings the bad news that the magical borders that protect the camp have been poisoned by an unknown enemy. The only safe haven for demigods will destroyed unless a cure is found. It’s up to Percy and his friends to journey into a Sea of Monsters to save their camp. This volume is being released a month ahead of the film, which is due out in August, and is sure to whet fans’ appetites.

But a danger threatens the magical land. The Nomes are attacking through a secret underground tunnel. Will anyone in Oz survive long enough to greet them? Creative team Skottie Young and Eric Shanower return once more to work their magic on this new adaptation as Dorothy and Toto, now with Uncle Henry and Aunt Em in tow, return to the land of Oz. It’s more all ages fun you won’t want to miss.
