Grimm Fairy Tales volume 1 explores a much darker side of the infamous fables you heard as a child as these classic tales are retold and re-imagined with a terrifying twist you’ll simply love as an adult.

Red Riding Hood is forced to confront the insatiable hunger of terrifying beast; Cinderella seeks a shocking vengeance for the years of torture she’s endured; Hansel & Gretel realize that the problems they left behind at home are nothing compared to the horror that awaits them on their ill-advised journey; A desperate girl makes a deal with the hideous Rumpelstiltskin only to find she may lose much more than she ever imagined; Sleeping Beauty learns that narcissism can be a very gruesome trait to possess and an envious sister finds her extreme measures to capture the man of her dreams may lead to much worse than just heartbreak from the Robber Bridegroom.

Enter a world where morality is constantly tested and the shocking repercussions of one’s choices must always be faced…

Enter the world of Grimm Fairy Tales.

Ahhhhh, a full color graphic novel about Grimm Fairy Tales. What more could one want?

In this volume… Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, Rumplestiltskin, Sleeping Beauty, and Robber Bridegroom. All gruesome and with a bit of a twist even I haven’t seen before. A college professor carries around this huge book of Grimm fairy tales and finds herself telling the tales to teenagers and college aged students that are in similar situations.

I’m very much intrigued to the background of this woman – a bit of which they show you in this first volume. I have Volumes 2 and 3 lined up to be read next.
