4.0 out of 5 stars Rapunzel's Revenge, 4 Sep 2010
This review is from: Rapunzel's Revenge: Graphic Novel (Paperback)
I didn't like Rapunzel's Revenge quite as much as Calamity Jack, but I still really enjoyed it. I've come to learn that graphic novels are a fun addition to my usual reading, and they're a great way to spend a couple of hours.

I read this series out of order, so I was glad that Rapunzel's Revenge answered a few of the questions I was left with after finishing Calamity Jack. I got more of the Jack/Rapunzel relationship progression I was missing, and also learnt why Rapunzel's long lasso-type hair is no longer attached to her head.

The Rapunzel retelling itself is witty and unusual, and I love how the Wild West is seamlessly included in the story. It provides an adventurous backdrop for the characters, and gives Nathan Hale a lot of scope when it comes to his excellent artwork.

I wasn't as fond of the tale in this first book, and it didn't appeal to me as much as Jack and his giant-infested beanstalk. I'm going to blame that on my love of Calamity Jack, in which Jack features more. Rapunzel might be a cool girl with mad braid skills, but she's no charming man with a tendency to swoop in and save the damsel in distress. I go for the big strong man every time - I can't help it!

3.5/5
