GRIMM UNIVERSE'S ROBYN HOOD KICKS ASS 8. Oktober 2014
Von W. Adams - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Grimm Fairy Tales: Robyn Hood Legend continues the story of our female Robyn Hood who has escaped from a dark, brutal Nottingham into the modern times. Once in the big city, our heroine turns herself into a Green Arrow type vigilante, patrolling the city and taking from the criminal rich and giving to the poor. But, even though she is trying to let the past go and embrace her new life, she can’t seem to escape it. Her old choices and her old mistakes haunt her dreams, making her shun companionship, and keeping her sealed tight in a world of self-imposed despair. And then things suddenly get even worse!

For one night, Robyn’s past literally comes to life. Maid Marian, Guy of Gisbourne and Will Scarlett, who she thought was dead, appearing in this world. And they have come in search of her, to take her back to Nottingham, so she can help their ragged tag group of former enemies defeat the Dark Horde that she left behind.

From reading a few comic collections from the Grimm Universe, I generally expect these stories to have two essential features: really hot chicks and incredibly dark stories. Here there is definitely the former (Robyn is a scantily clad vigilante, of course), but the creative team has toned down the darkness and gore, making this comic story more about the character’s relationships with one another. And that actually works, because the narrative about Will’s love for Robyn (especially our female archer’s reluctance to embrace that love and why) and the flashbacks about Sir Guy of Gisbourne’s past were both well handled, turning what could have been ho-hum plot lines into something a bit deeper and more meaningful. Hell, the creative team even transformed Maid Marian into more than just a damsel in distress.

Overall, Robyn Hood Legends was a well written and illustrated comic collection. Patrick Shand did a really good job of creating a new wrinkle in the Robyn Hood mythos while tidying up the past storylines. The art was very nice, if not spectacular, and the covers were stellar as always. You might not find anything earth shattering here, but it is still a fun comic collection to try out.

This one is recommended for people who like fairy tale re-imagining, Zenescope, masked vigilantes, bows and arrows, and really hot chicks.

I received this ARC from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review. I’d like to thank them both for allowing me to receive this review copy and inform everyone that the review you have read is my opinion alone.

This Is the Grimm Fairy Tales "Robyn" to Read 4. Oktober 2014
Von Pop Bop - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a purely personal opinion, so take from it what you will. There are three volumes in the Robyn story. The first is just titled "Grimm Fairy Tales: Robyn Hood". The second is titled "Grimm Fairy Tales: Robyn Hood: Wanted". The third volume, this one, is "Grimm Fairy Tales: Robyn Hood Legend". I've read all three. The first one turns on Robyn's gang rape, torture and mutilation on Earth before she is transported to the Grimm Universe realm of Myst. The second volume follows that line, and with Robyn's return to Earth there is more hyper-violence, torture and psychotic behavior.

Both books are way out on the furthest edge of Grimm Universe violence, and as outliers of that sort I found them not so much unnerving as simply uninteresting. Comic books featuring swordplay violence and magical head-exploding powers are fine, because they're comic books, but I just don't get very realistic rape/torture/mutilation as a story line. And I don't get a heroine who is as randomly and unjustly violent as the bad guys.

The odd thing is that Robyn shows up all of the time as a crossover character or a Realm Knight or a one-shot in lots of other Grimm Universe books, and she's a fine character with a lot of attitude, but a solid and comic-appropriate presence. That's why I decided to take a look at this book.

Well, guess what. It feels very much like someone decided it was time to tone the Robyn story down and get it in sync with the rest of the Grimm Universe. Maybe it was the author, Patrick Shand. (He has an afterword that practically declares as much, which is interesting.) Anyway, the upshot is that this is a book that you can pick up and enjoy without really needing any background from the first two, and this is a perfectly fine Robyn tale with a very satisfying and dramatically sound resolution.

I like Robyn in her other Grimm appearances, and I wanted to be able to like this trilogy. Robyn displays more depth and range than some of the other Grimm characters, and the character deserved a wrap up of her featured arc that could be recommended.

So, I guess the bottom line is that if you have really enjoyed the trilogy, I would expect this to be a fine conclusion. If you didn't care for how the trilogy started, this is your chance to come back and get in on the solid conclusion. I'm happy I gave this one more try.

Please note that I received a free advance ecopy of this book in exchange for a candid review. Apart from that I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.
I tried to like it 7. November 2014
Von Tattoogirl Reads - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I have mixed feelings about this title. I wanted to like it because it’s a fairy tale retelling. I was believing that I wouldn’t like it because it’s a Zenescope title which I tend not to like. I gave it a try because it was on Netgalley and I was wanting to read a graphic novel.

I did not read the first volumes in this trilogy. Because of that, I’m not going to incorporate my confusion about what was going on at times into this review. Patrick Shand actually did a really good job of recapping what happened in the previous volumes. For those of you that don’t read many comics, you can hop in at different points usually and figure out what’s going on through really good recapping. Talented writers do this in a way that refreshes continued readers of the story and recaps for all noobs. At almost all times, I could figure out all that had happened. Thumbs up to Shand for that.

The art was really pretty. Almost all Zenescope’s titles are pretty. They are always full of super hot chicks too. I know that makes some of you queasy but truthfully I think a lot of people buy these titles do it for the chicks. I don’t mind. I knew what I was getting into and everything was beautifully drawn.

The story was mediocre. Sorry! It was. I just didn’t care about anyone. Robyn was the easiest to like but that’s because we could hear her inner monologue and struggle dealing with what was happening with Will Scarlet.

I recommend this to people who really like hot chicks in comics (not so much meaningful female characters…), fairy tale retellings, and Zenescope.
Oh, the false hopes! :( 17. November 2014
Von Janus @ The Blair Book Project - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I started reading The Grimm Fairy Tales: Robyn Hood comic book out of sheer need for artwork inspiration. Finding an interesting story behind the artwork, I then continued on because I wanted to see how the story would evolve. Now, I’ve come to see how it would end (well, on this chapter of Robyn’s life at least).

Let’s cut to the chase, this comic book nearly ripped my heart out! So much that I had to send out a tweet to Patrick Shand telling him: “For a moment there you gave me hope… and then you crushed it!”

Oh that bitter ending!

After all that Robyn had been through, I was hoping so badly to see her have even an ounce of happiness in the end. Damn! It was too much to hope for. And yet in spite of that, I really enjoyed reading this. The action and drama that went on throughout the story was a worthwhile read.

Although, as much as I enjoyed this, I was still left with some unanswered questions about Robyn’s past, was that done intentionally since she has other stories to be released? Or was it not as important to provide closure to? Like who where Robyn’s real parents? Why were people after Robyn during her birth and who was the man trying to protect her then (events that occurred in the first volume)? Did I overlook something?

Nevertheless, out of the three Grimm Fairy Tales: Robyn Hood comics (not counting her titles with a different adventure), I’d have to say this one was the best, albeit most painful, among the volumes.
The End of the Trilogy 31. Oktober 2014
Von Nicola Mansfield - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Wonderful end to this trilogy and the best book of the three! The artwork is as we've come to expect simply beautiful. But by far Shand gives us some of his best work to date. A story with all the things you expect from Zenescope: magic, demons, sexyness, bodacious babes and violence this volume has surprisingly tender moments and a lot of pathos. I'm quite impressed with the ending. The beginning though was filled with shocks as readers of the previous books will find some unexpected character returns. And even though this trilogy is finished it is not the end as the last pages set the scene for Robyn's new ongoing series. Looking forward to that!
