As you can probably guess if you are familiar with previous read and reviewed titles, I can never get tired of fairytale retellings, that's for sure. Be them dark and gruesome or on the contrary, cute and funny, I'll think twice before refusing the chance to read them.
Far Out Fairytales is a collection of classic tales with modern twists in a graphic novel format, illustrated by various authors. While I can't say I absolutely loved all five of them, I definitely enjoyed seeing the twists, some being clever, others just silly.
- Cinderella is a ninja
- Hansel and Gretel could be proud cast members of the Walking Dead
- Red Riding Hood is nothing other than a superhero.
These three were the stories I most enjoyed, while the others didn't quite manage to grab my attention.
But this title is aimed towards children and I can guarantee they will be entertained, especially if they already are familiar with the classics. We all know kids these days get bored very quickly so it's always nice to offer them a new and exciting thing.
