Review: Robyn Hood by Shand, Watts, & Metcalfe (Zenescope Graphic Novel)

Synopsis: The brand new Grimm Fairy Tales series that reinvents a classic tale of action, fantasy and adventure is here! Inside the realm of Myst, a tyrant rules the city of Bree with an iron fist, leaving its citizens living in fear and terry. But all hope is not lost as an orphaned teen from our world discovers her true destiny and becomes the legend she was meant to be. (from the back of the book)

Review: I enjoy most of the Zenescope stories, and this is no exception. The story is gritty, raw, and not for the feint of heart. The main character, Robyn, is no angel. She breaks the law, steals and kills - but through it all, she maintains her own morality and sense of justice. As for the secondary characters, I enjoyed the twist of the traditional names - Will Scarlett and Little John - and the villains have substance and depth. Spectacular art complements the story nicely.
My only qualm is how many questions were left unanswered. But considering there is a second, called Robyn Hunt: Wanted, I hope the next answers at least some of the mysteries.
