Is It Any Good?
Lots of fantasy writers turn to folktales for inspiration, but this new version of a familar favorite could use an extra touch of magic. Writer Chris Colfer and artist John Proctor work well together, presenting a fantasyland brimming with possibilities. But this episode in their ongoing saga seems a little mundane, as if they're holding back something more exciting. Maybe the creators will up their game in the next installment.
