    One thought on “Grimm Fairy Tales Volume 1

    1. Heidi The Hippie Reader on said:

      The fairy tale re-tellings were a disappointment. I wanted more story development, characterizations, anything really.I was thinking Fables when I picked this up and it is not that.Grimm Fairy Tales seemed like just an excuse for a cartoonist to drawn scantily-clad and ridiculously proportioned women.Don't parade around like you've got a good story when you're basically a fantasy girlie-mag. If that's what you are, embrace it. There's an audience for that.I feel like this book tried to be someth [...]

      Grimm Fairy Tales is a great example of "don't judge a book by its cover" even when the covers of these graphic novels make such an effort to ensure that you judge them. Scantily clad fairy tale ladies adorn each cover, posed provocatively, trapped in precarious situations, tormented by evils. How good could this comic really be? Based on these covers alone, I figured I was in for a laugh in reading this. I was pleasantly surprised to find just how deceptive the covers are. Each story starts in [...]

      I have to say that I really and truly enjoy Zenescope's series Grimm Fairy Tales and and all the various spinoffs (Neverland, Piper, etc). Unless something major happens I will continue to follow this series. My one and only gripe with it is the unnecessary and gratuitous sexuality and objectification of women within the pages. It truly has no place within the story. Now I am by no means a prude but they don't even try to give it purpose. They are no better than the creators over at the bigger p [...]

      Saw this on top of a pile of books of my roomie's and picked it up. Quick read. Gruesome twists on fairy tales, but all with a good moral for those they were meant for. My cover was different, very "fan service", but pretty. I wouldn't go out of my way to read the rest, but given the opportunity, I wouldn't avoid them either. Solid, middle of the road 3 stars for me.

      I probably owe someone some apology for reading this. More at the end.=====My library has had a random collection of the Grimm Fairy Tales comic series for years now. If I stumbled across one while browsing, I would allow myself a brief ogle (I am a straight owner of a Y-chromosome after all), then recover with a brief "tsk" (heavily sexist objectifying PG-13 covers), and put it away.I went as far as to have read one (while single!), smuggling it out past my librarian friends (90% female) using [...]

      Meh I read a few borderline bad comics just for the art and/or T&A but this is bad pretty much on all fronts. I was hoping for something similar to Fables except sexy, but instead I got nothing close to Fables storywise and a bunch of mediocre to bad art. For a boob comic there wasn't much to see. Which since this is all the book had going for it, means it was a pretty terrible experience. The fairy tale parts were ok, sometimes. Hansel and Gretel and the Robber Bridegroom both had some fun [...]

      2 zvezdice jer se Volume 1 sastoji samo od 6 brojeva i za sad mi nista nije jasno. iskreno se nadam da se u narednih 94 brojeva stvari razjasnjavaju i da ce se actually nesto konkretno desiti. Toliko o ovome.

    8. Jamie on said:

      An interesting blend of the Classic tales, with some even nastier twists then the Grimm brothers gave. Toss in a bit of modern times and you get this compilation. Every tale starts in a more present, modern day, with a flashback to one of the fairy tales, either through a book or story being told. Each tale imparts a lesson to the reader/listener in how it relates to them. I liked the touch of relevance. The woman who shares the stories/book is the real enigma. Who she is and why she is sharing [...]

      A graphic novel that retells classic fairy tales with modern, dark, sexy twists? The only way this could have been written more for me is if they had actually dedicated the book to me and sent me copies directly. I really like this series and am curious to see where it's going.

    10. Andre on said:

      I know that this series is apparently still running and others said you should not judge a book by its cover, but I think that judging it by that is pretty damn accurate here.What the cover is referring to is pretty damn clear with its colors and all but I must really say: Damn this was uncreative.Not that I was surprised, I had hoped for more, but I didn’t get it. The warning signs only continued from the cover onwards. The inlay already stated that this here tries to get the darker stuff fro [...]

    11. J. on said:

      When I saw the covers of these comics, I pretty much dismissed the series altogether. But someone told me there was more to them: that they were modern, satirical, psychologically interesting retellings of fairy tales. This was only partly true: they are retellings, but they aren't particularly interesting in any way.Each issue has a "revamped" version of a fairy tale, bookended by some very short modern tale putting it into it's cautionary perspective. Unfortunately, the bookends are almost unb [...]

      Not as good as my favorite Fables but I still want to continue the series!!!

      Grimm Fairy Tales Vol.1LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD (ISSUE 1)PLOT: After a fight when a girl's boyfriend pressures her into having sex, she finds a mysterious book and read's the old fairy tale Red Riding Hood to which her eyes are opened THOUGHTS: I know the lesson was supposed to be about morality and women not feeling like they should be pressured to have sex by aggressive men but ironically (and this might just be me) I also found another lesson. This lesson had to do with sex turning men into bea [...]

      A very mature fairytale retelling so one that would be better for adults to keep away from the reach of children or even access to them. Keeping to the spirit of the original stories in which lessons were learned and the material directed to the mature audience this copy keeps to the following core standards while adding just a bit more spice to the telling. The illustrations within were a combination of good and bad for me. I enjoyed the color schemes since each particular scheme gave the right [...]

    15. Sam on said:

      The entry selling point for these comics are the covers, which always show salacious images of the female characters to attract the male gaze, making it look like “porn for teens”. The artist for most of these covers is Al Rio, a Brazilian artist who has worked on titles such as Voodoo, Gen 13 and DV8, and is known by his busty scantily clothed heroines. The problem is that the art inside isn’t done by Al Rio or anyone close to him. The artwork tries to keep with the tone of the covers, bu [...]

      The child in me, who fell in-love with prince charming, wants to be offended by this improper version of Grimm’s fairy tales; however, I grudgingly admit that the adult in me is drawn to the originality and cannot help but find humor in alterations like Hansel being eaten alive, and intrigue at the sight of murdering sisters in the Robber Bridegroom (have I spoiled anything?).It is not always easy to relate to older stories, like fairy tales. Sometimes, the morals (if there are any) can simply [...]

    17. Jaimie on said:

      For all that this series could have been, I found myself astounded and disgusted by the artist's portrayal of the female characters. Even when they became emotionally strong and triumphed over male abusers/users they are depicted as bosom-heaving barbies. Clearly the company is trying to market the series to guys by doing this (girls would already be drawn in by the fairytale genre), but by disrespecting their female characters through the visuals they have actually alienated the female readersh [...]

    18. Dimitris on said:

      Well it was fun to read. Re-tellings of known fairy tales with a twist. I liked the stories, it was a nice read nothing too good and nothing too bad, although I gotta say the artwork sometimes was not good.Assymetry was having a party inside. Couple of stories were ok, but some were making me cringe and wonder if the artists weren't seeing like, the obvious.But overall made me wanna read the second volume too, so that's good I guess.

    19. Kait on said:

      I couldn't finish this one. The idea of applying old tales to modern events is neat, as is having a common storyteller across each issue. But none of the stories really gripped me, and after half the volume, I didn't care about a single character in any of the stories. I also found some of the problems the characters needed to solve were catty, and the women were often very sexualized in the art work.

    20. Kurt on said:

      Heard good things about these and the comic is becoming quite popular, so I decided to give it a shot. Not really impressed. The modern story tie-in with each fairy tale doesn't always work or is too cliche. It's enough of a guilty pleasure to not get a 1 star, but definitely not thought provoking enough to give it any more than 2. The art is fair - nothing fantastic.

    21. Nicole Trainor on said:

      Picked this up, thinking it would be worth-while. It wasn't. The art was ehh/nothing special and the re-tellings of the tales were terrible. What a disappointment and waste of $15. There is no reason to pay for this graphic novel.

    22. Kate Copeseeley on said:

      I wish I could give this negative stars. Terrible, absolutely terrible. Even horny teenage boys would shun this book. Offensive to the eyes and the mind. The first time I've ever wanted to burn a book.

    23. Theresa on said:

      I really liked the concept of this comic book, but was disgusted by the amount of exposed breasts. It seems even when women are strong and independent they still have to be over sexualized. I'm not sure if I'll continue with this series or not.

    24. Aditya Shevade on said:

      Perhaps 1.5 stars. Fairy tales sexed up and slightly convoluted but plain, boring, short and no connection with each other. Artwork is poor. Do not waste time and money on this, read Fables. I might read second part since I already have it with me.

    25. Tia East-lake on said:

      I love it! Read the whole thing in a few hours. I highly recommend it!

    26. Eilífr on said:

      I'm glad Zenescope changed the direction for the Grimm titles. The earlier books are kinda stupid.

    27. Katter on said:

      I was lured into reading this comic due to the cover art and the prospect that the fairy tales of old would be spun in an exciting way. I adore when authors take old stories and put their own spin to it. That way the tales stay fresh and engaging.That's why it pains me to say that this retelling fell flat. There are 7 stories mashed together in 158 pages which means that each story is roughly 22 pages long. Now that might seem like it could be enough time to delve into each tale but it's not!All [...]

      This volume would pop-up on recommendations from , so when the local public library got Hoopla and I discovered all the comics that were available, I carefully restrained myself and decided to start at the beginning. Grimm Fairy Tales Vol. 1 takes and spins six fairy tales (Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Hansel & Gretel, Rumpelstiltskin, Sleeping Beauty, and the Robber Baron) with a context of modern teens being told a "fairy tale" relevant to their current problems.Then there is the Legacy ta [...]

      Color me impressed. I love it when you think, in the back of your mind you already imagine giving a book a certain rating based on the beginning or midway through while your reading. Only to be happy that you were wrong! To me, this could best be described as Creepshow meets the Brothers Grimm. Classic cautionary tales with a new spin. Look forward to devouring the next two volumes in this great series.
