This graphic novel adaption of Grimm's Fairy Tales contains new interpretations of the famous tales, which are much darker than the watered-down versions commonly told. Every story is introduced by a modern sequence which describes a problem situation (sisters fighting, brother and sister running away from home, etc), the fairy tale which follows is closely connected to this issue and shows what can happen when the problem is not resolved. This first volume contains Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Hansel & Gretel, Rumpelstiltskin, Sleeping Beauty and the lesser well known Robber Bridegroom. I loved these dark reinterpretations which often contained unexpected twists at the end, but be warned, these stories are not suited for children.

The back cover claims "these classic tales are retold and re-imagined with a terrifying twist..." but it is untrue. There's enough implied adult material in the little wrapper segments that you'll want to keep this away from children, but nothing in the story or art is as sexy as the Red Riding Hood on the cover. These are abridged versions of classic fairy tales with some darker graphics, but stay pretty close to the original. Nowhere are the "terrifying twists" we're promised, just gorier versions of the stories we've heard over and over. Each story is framed by a formulaic wrapper: A modern slutty teenager has a minor crisis, then dreams/reads/hears a darker version of a childhood tale (that doesn't really fit their situation anyway), then inexplicably changes their ways after the fairytale.Many are given the story by a recurring professor character -- or are they two different people? There seems to be two versions of her, or maybe two different artists tried to do the same character. It doesn't really matter.These are stories that have been done and redone many times in other places with interesting twists, but there's nothing original in these banal reworkings. This was just disappointing. I won't be buying Volume 2.
