Overview

The Big Book of Grimm presents more than fifty folk tales collected by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm in ways you’ve never seen them before: uncensored, unflinching, and unsuitable for the faint of heart.

Rendered in gruesome glory by some of today’s top graphic and comic artists, these stories present a vision of the world as the Brothers Grimm saw it: dark, dangerous, and full of foreboding. There are predators behind every tree, wolves in grandmas’s clothing, and woodland creatures lying in wait for the unwary. There’s no home without negligent parents or a scheming stepmother, no marriage that isn’t rancid with lies and deceit, and no byway or backroad that doesn’t lead directly to a nasty gnome, leering dwarf, or wicked witch hungry for human flesh. Every gift comes with a heavy price, and no stranger is to be trusted. The poor suffer their share of humiliations and tragedies, but even Prince Charming can’t be sure that he’ll live happily ever after.

Originally intended as cautionary tales to warn youngsters of the wicked ways of the world and to keep them to the straight and narrow, these stories are brim full of treachery, torment, and terror. Prepare yourself for bedtime stories that are sure to keep you up all night. Fairy tales don’t come Grimmer than these.

    Grimm but Great

    We loved this book. Great comic/graphic novel artists and writers participated, so there is something for every lover of the genre. Plus the terrific original stories collected by the brothers Grimm. There is something very real about these stories, and you can really feel they were told around the fires at night, passed down from person to person in a time before electricity turned night into day. The good usually win, evil gets what's coming to it, and stepmother's are evil. Great stuff.

    big book of grimm

    the story line was great. i didnt care for the book too much. when i bought the book, the sticker covered the part where it said it was in comic book format, i dont care for comic book style books. i prefer to read a story, but if someone loved fairy tales, but doesnt like to read, this would be a great book for them.

    I loved this book. Many people would know it is in comic book format if you maybe, I don't know, opened it. It brings the stories to life and the different art from each artist is wonderful. The stories were made to set children straight and keep them from doing anything dumb, that's why the stories are so graphic. Any adult in their right mind would know that. All in all I recommend this book very highly.

    Grim Grimm

    How to make the ghastly, gruesome, and unforgettable even more so? Imagine it and draw it, then sell it to impressionable people who will have nightmares for the remainder of their lives. The Brothers Grimm, who have scared many a child, and perhaps, those reading the stories aloud to those petrified children, will continue to do so with this this wonderfully done graphic comics collection. For those of you that feel the images conjured by the chosen artists do not match your own imagination, DIY. And good luck.

    Great but where's the Grimm?

    I like the variety of styles of the included artists. There were few surprises storywize (where's the "uncensored" part?!), but maybe my norwegian childhood stories never hid the gory details?

    I would have liked some more meat to the bone; most stories ended up far too short and sketchy. We want more of the good stuff!
