Grimm Fairy Tales: Robyn Hood: Wanted

Pub Date Nov 19 2013
When I picked this up it was because I had been meaning to get into the Grimm Fairy Tales series for quite a while. I heard a lot of good things about it; and thought this one might be the place to start. Grimm Fairy Tales comics are basically the theme or idea of a fairy tale or traditional archetype world and hero and put them into our world. They are kind of like urban fantasy comic books. This one keeps shifting from a medieval Nottingham and a modern day city. Eventually the two worlds collide and madness ensues. It’s not a bad story, if a little predicable. I really liked the cover art. All the covers are full page layouts in the back of the book. But the panel art itself, I found a bit lackluster and much to light in most places. I was a little put off by how much pastel seemed to be used in this book.
Overall, a fun book. But with stuff like Fables out there; I think they have a long way to go to compete.
