A Review: ROBYN HOOD #1

The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of ROBYN HOOD #1 from Zenescope Entertainment. Pat Shand writes and Dan Glasl draws.

Robyn has not had an easy life. Orphaned at birth, lost the only parent type who she ever cared about, never really got along with others in school. A high-school prank lost her an eye. And then not long after, a bright flash of light and she’s in another world, surrounded by medieval soldiers. It’s not likely to get any easier anytime soon.

Set in the Grimm multiverse, this story proves to be a slightly different take on the Robin Hood “myth.” Robyn promises to be the standard Zenescope strong female lead, though there’s some interesting background out there for her to discover about herself. This should be a fun story not only from the ‘kicking butt’ perspective, but also in the self-discovery direction.

There’s a lot to like in this first issue if you’re a Grimm-verse fan. And if you’re not, well, this is a good jumping-on point to start becoming one. Part high fantasy, part modern drama, and a dash of nice artwork makes for some exciting reading.

ROBYN HOOD #1 is available now at your FLCS or by order from zenescope.com.
