Yesterday the Percy Jackson Facebook page announced that the Percy Jackson & The Olympians series will be getting a makeover. The new cover art is by artist John Rocco, who designed the original art for the series starting in 2005, as well as the covers of all of the American versions of Riordan’s Heroes of Olympus and Kane Chronicles.
The release of the new covers will begin February 17th starting with The Lightning Thief, followed by the remaining four books throughout the week. No news yet on if the books will be hardcover or paperback.
The new covers are likely to look more like the art featured on the Heroes of Olympus series, which will be a much needed improvement from the originals and help tie the three series together.
