    Pretty good

    Thoughts before reading: Heard about this when it was being compared to the show Once Upon a Time. I hadn't read this before but I get why they think that. But at the same time, both are good, a little different but good. While reading: Well, this is definitely different than the kid friendly tales. The art was really good and the story itself is interesting. Liked the little references to some of the characters, either by name or hints as to whose who. After reading: This was a good start and really want to read the other volumes in the series.
