Ghosts of her past,
This review is from: Grimm Fairy Tales: Robyn Hood: Wanted (Paperback)
Robyn Hood is my favourite character from the Grimm/Zenescope universe. I enjoy Pat Shand's writing and it is obvious he really care for the character he has created and is moving her development along slowly. I enjoyed this story but it was a much slower pace than the first book. This is a 5 issue miniseries this arc is concentrating more on Robyn learning about her origins, trauma and finally accepting her destiny. I was a little disappointed in the ending, but the story is continued in Grimm Fairy Tales: Realm Knights, strangely the 2 series were released at the same time. Both series are building towards Zenescope next BIG project Robyn Hood Unleashed, dues sometime next year (2014).
Good art work in the story and especially in the cover gallery. The only thing is as much as I like the pretty picture of Robyn posing (I really do), they are not in keeping with her character in the comic. She sums it up herself by saying "last time I was in Mists they seemed to run out of material for my clothes".
The story after her return to Earth Robyn trying to make a life for herself, has a run in with Britney (Red Riding Hood), who has made it her mission to rid Earth of murdering Highborn (if both parents were magical/demonic) or Falseborns (if one parent was magical/demonic). Following Robyn's revenge killings Red assumes Robyn is just on a killing spree, and Robyn assumes by Red's costume she has followed her from mists an is one of King John's assassins. This is the first time we learn Robyn might have other powers apart from her archery.
Robyn while on the run from the police decides to track down her human father, and try to learn more about her real parents. Meanwhile in Mists Robyn's legend continues to grow, filling people with hope, which is until Guy of Gisborne claims power returning brutality to the realm. The Only hope for the people of Misys is for Robyn to return, but is this exactly what Gisborne wants and does he actually understand the powers at work? Coming back to Mists Robyn gets her answers but she will not like what she finds; going back to the ceremony she was saved from in issue 1 of Grimm Fairy Tales: Robyn Hood (Grimm Fairy Tales Presents); can Robyn except all this and move on to create her own destiny. Great story I look forward to what comes next.
