This action-packed origins story of Robin O' the Hood is expertly written, drawn, and colored by three talented artists. The illustrations fit perfectly with the fast-moving nature of the story and neither the words nor the pictures overwhelm the other. The story is an intriguing account of Robin Hood's life -- from his first interaction with an outlaw as a young boy to the grown man he becomes who wants nothing more than to provide for and protect the citizens of Nottingham. The tension between Robin and Gisburn is thick and readers will want to see who ends up victorious in the end. Teen readers will appreciate this fast paced retelling of the popular myth.
